    May 3, 2012: Tanning mom, Patricia Krentcil says she never put her daughter in a tanning booth and that someone fat, jealous and ugly is on a witch hunt.

    The North Jersey mom accused of taking her five-year-old daughter into a tanning booth has been banned from several New Jersey tanning salons, reports the “Today" show.

    Patricia Krentcil, 44, pleaded not guilty last week to child endangerment charges after police arrested her when her daughter was allegedly burned at a tanning salon in Essex County. Krentcil claims her daughter was burned the old-fashioned way – playing outside sans sun screen.

    Now, she’s paying the ultimate price (for her at least). According to TMZ, the “Tan Mom” has been banned from at least eight tanning salons near her home in New Jersey.

    Krentcil's alleged actions have not only caused public outrage, they've inspired a new toy -- the Tanorexic doll by HeroBuilders.com.
