“Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil – who first made headlines in 2012 when she brought her then-5-year-old daughter, Anna, into a tanning bed in Nutley, NJ – is making her triumphant return to public life after coming out of her medically induced coma. According to Page Six, The 51-year-old will perform with singing partner Adam Barta at Damon Feldman’s Celebrity Boxing event in Fort Lauderdale in November. She’ll be performing her hit single, “Free 2 Be Me.”
Although she won’t be boxing, herself, she promises attendees “a treat in the ring that will steal the show,” she said in a statement.
As for that coma I am just now hearing about…
In June, Krentcil was hospitalized for pneumonia but when doctors couldn’t drain all of the water from her lungs given their weak state, which was a result of her smoking addiction, she entered cardiac arrest. They then put her in a coma but ultimately was revived.
“I had a breakdown in my body. My whole system just collapsed,” explained Krentcil.
Glad to see she’s on the mend and back in the headlines again.
