"Tan Mom" Patricia Krentcil, who first found "fame" when she took her young daughter tanning, has filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Richard Krentcil.
She told TMZ she's ending the marriage because her husband recently failed a lie detector test about infidelity, which he took on a show called The Test. TMZ talked to Richard and he said he wants to keep the marriage alive and hopes they can work through their issues.
Richard defended his wife in August of last year when she made a drunken appearance at a Hell's Kitchen club in NYC. “Maybe she overdid it. But she doesn’t go out much,’’ the embarrassed hubby told the New York Post. “She got a little nervous, but she was just trying to have a good time."
Patricia recently completed a 30-day rehab stint at Florida's Lukens Institute, then returned home to Nutley, New Jersey. "It's work, but I've changed my attitude and behavior," she said. "I feel great. My mind is clear and I'm grateful to be alive."
Weirdly enough, she went from there to doing stand-up comedy. TMZ said her comedy debut — made just three weeks ago — included jokes about her husband's tiny penis and their bad sex life.
In the divorce documents, she's asking for $500 a week in spousal support and full custody of their two children, with $500 a week in child support.
Who knew excessive tanning would be the least of this family’s issues? Good luck to them.
