Playboy Wants Nothing to do with ‘Tanning Mom’

There is a God.

Patricia Krentcil, better known as the “tanning mom,” was caught on camera saying she would be interested in posing for Playboy if they ever called — which immediately sent chills down my spine.

Hugh Hefner‘s people caught wind of this story and immediately squashed the idea of the 44-year-old New Jersey woman taking her clothes off for the men’s publication.

According to TMZ:

One source says, “It wouldn’t even be considered” — Hef wouldn’t let TM pose in the magazine or ANY Playboy outlet. Simply put — Tanning Mom just isn’t Playboy material.

Playboy later went on the record and said, “It would definitely never happen.”

Whew.
