Patricia "Tan Mom" Krentcil accepted In Touch magazine's challenge to quit tanning for one month and the tabloid's latest issue includes images of Krentcil's incredible transformation from a dark-orange-hued victim of excessive UV rays, to a smiling, happy ... mom. Jezebel reports that per the agreement, Krentcil gave up both real and artificial rays. She still used self-tanner and said the lack of tanning made her feel "weird and pale." But the result speaks for itself. All disturbing stories of possible addiction should have such happy endings.
