Bob Sirott's one more thing about tanning

One more thing, about "the tanning mom."   

Unfortunately this story just won't go away.  And the worst part about it is, every so often you're minding your own business watching TV and all of a sudden, there's that horrifying sight again.  
The latest on the "tanorexic" mom, Patricia Krentcil, Is that she's been banned from several New Jersey tanning facilities for giving them a bad name.  

Some salons there have her picture posted on the wall like a wanted poster.  The salon where her daughter, Anna, allegedly received a sunburn while "tanning with mommy" is reportedly going to be investigated by the New Jersey Department of Health.
As for Kristen Wiig's weekend update portrayal on Saturday Night Live, Krentcil said she thought it was hysterical.  It was.

Chicago 50th ward Alderman Debra Silverstein is not amused by all this.  She introduced an ordinance today that would raise the age ban on children using tanning facilities in the city from 14, up to 18.  

But if they're not old enough to get into the salon, now they can have their own special doll.  The "tanorexic" action figure features a face that appears to be seven times more orange than the hands.  And it's only $29.95.  

 Remember when we thought George Hamilton had a weird tanning fetish?  He seems normal now, doesn't he?
