It looks as if the New Jersey tanning bed mom is enjoying her day in the sun.
Patricia Krentcil was the subject of a Weekend Update segment on "Saturday Night Live," in which Oscar-nominee Kristin Wiig posed as the now-notorious tanner.
In the skit, Wiig arrives onstage as Krentcil, followed by a swirl of smoke.
At several points, she stops to drink some water because she's parched from the inside out.
The segment wraps up with Wiig putting a piece of white bread between her thighs for a second -- and then retrieving a charred piece of toast.
Perhaps the beauty of the segment goes beyond the one-liners: Wiig is made up to be a dead ringer for Krentcil, down to the bow in her bleached-blond hair.
"The whole thing was hysterical," Krentcil told the New York Post on Sunday. "It was well done."
The comment suggests that Krentcil might have a biting sense of humor of her own: The entire skit played off the notion that Krentcil, 44, has cooked herself to a crisp.
Krentcil pleaded not guilty last week to a child-endangerment charge that she allegedly placed her 5-year-old daughter in a tanning bed.
She acknowledges a penchant for tanning, but says she would never allow her daughter to use a fake bake, and describes the charge and uproar as a witch hunt.
Krentcil says her daughter got sunburned the old fashioned way -- by being in the sun for too long.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
