The Friday Dump: ‘Tan Mom’ Needs a Rep, Stat

Today in Yes, It’s Friday News: Some lucky entertainment rep in LA may soon get the chance to promote the very best member of our instant celebrity culture: Patricia Krentcil, better known as “Tan Mom”, wants to pitch a movie based on her life. She tells In Touch that she’s “already begun” working on it and that she plans to star as herself.

A grand jury recently chose not to indict her after she was accused of child endangerment for taking her 6-year-old daughter to a tanning salon. Now she wants to right all the wrongs inflicted upon her and her family and balance her checkbook by milking her infamy for all it’s worth–starting with an interview with America’s most respected medical professional, Dr. Drew. She claims that she’s “been fielding offers for modeling gigs in London, Paris and New York.”

It’s a living! Now who wants to accept the challenge?
