'Tanning Mom' Patricia Krentcil Says She's In Talks For Reality Show, Would Do Playboy

Patricia Krentcil, the Nutley, N.J. woman dubbed the "tanning mom" due to her very tanned complexion, recently told reporters for gossip site TMZ that people are interested in her for a reality TV show.

"There are a couple of people that want me," Krentcil told reporters.

Krentcil then said, "Of course" when asked about doing Playboy. She then struck a pose for the camera.

Krentcil made headlines last week after police said she put her 6-year-old daughter in a tanning bed. Krentcil pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges following her arrest last month in Nutley.

"That child was never in that tanning booth," her attorney John D. Caruso said. "She loves her child more than her own life and would never ever allow her child to go inside that tanning bed."

Krentcil has denied putting her daughter in a tanning booth and blasted people who call her a bad mom.

"There's somebody out there my whole life that doesn't like me because they're jealous, they're fat and they're ugly," she said.

Krentcil is due back in court on the child endangerment charge next month.

As far as posing in the nude, TMZ reported a Playboy source said, "It wouldn't even be considered...Simply put -- Tanning Mom just isn't Playboy material."
