The pictures do indeed tell the story.
Patricial Krentcil, the so-called tanning mom who couldn't stop trying to bronze her body and was accused of taking her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning booth (Krentcil says she didn't do that) has gone pale.
Patricia Krentcil on May 2 at a court hearing about a charge that she endangered her daughter by taking her into a tanning salon. Krentcil pleaded innocent.
In Touch challenged her to quit, and "after an entire month out of the sun (real and artificial)" she's looking much different in a photo shoot for the magazine.
"I feel weird and pale," she tells In Touch.
She also claims she really has given up her obsession - mostly. In Touch says Krentcil admits she likely will "squeeze a tan in here or there."
