‘Tan Mom’ Got Wasted and Attacked a Drag Queen (PHOTOS)
Hey, remember Patricia Krentcil, better known as Tan Mom? How could you forget, right? But in case you missed the original story, here’s a recap: Tan Mom shot to Internet fame when she was arrested on April 24th on a charge of second-degree child endangerment. The reason for the charge? The woman allegedly took her five-year-old daughter into a tanning booth with her.
But the Internet wasn’t interested in Krentcil because she’s (allegedly) a negligent parent – it was because she closely resembles a sentient leather shoe. The walking skin cancer warning advertisement was parodied on Saturday Night Live, became the inspiration for a ‘tanorexic’ doll by HeroBuilders, and appeared on the pages of InTouch magazine.
But, like any Internet celebrity (where are you now, Numa Numa guy?), her fifteen minutes seemed to be up – until yesterday.
Yesterday, Tan Mom was given a shot at a final hurrah when she was invited to attend (appropriately) a roast in her honor at a drag club called Hell’s Kitchen’s XL Club. The event was called (also appropriately, for reasons you’ll soon understand) Tan Mom at Hot Mess.
The Tan Mom showed up to the event looking nothing short of a hot mess in a skin-tight, unflattering red dress that she barely managed to keep on, given that she was clearly totally sloshed.
“She showed up for the red carpet and fell over,” said a witness to the NY Post. “She then got up and tried to attack [a] drag queen.”
Things only got more embarrassing for Krentcil from there.
“We asked her what she wanted to drink and she slurred, ‘I didn’t put my kid in a tanning bed!’,” explained Bianca del Rio, drag queen and one of the show’s hosts.
The bacon-like woman continued to shout at the crowd and deny the charges that made her famous.
Eventually, Krentcil had to be removed from the premises by security.
