Michael Lohan brought Tan Mom to the rehab Lindsay wants to switch to

From what little I paid attention to “Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil, it was really obvious that she needed rehab. That’s probably why she ended up in trouble with child protective services in the first place: she was such a drunken orange mess that it wasn’t hard for people to believe that she’d put her five year-old daughter in a tanning booth. (She was eventually cleared of child endangerment charges.)

Tanning Mom tried to earn some money on the event appearance circuit last year with a couple of disastrous appearances during which she was so blotto she could barely stand. Then she did some cringe-inducing bikini photos and tried to follow Farrah Abraham’s lead to become a pr0n star, but no one would have her.

So Krentcil is now in rehab, following a near-arrest at a Minnesota airport for public drunkenness. And Michael Lohan took her there.

45-year-old Tanning Mom has entered rehab for alcohol abuse, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Patricia Krentcil — who famously faced child endangerment charges last year after allegedly putting her 5-year-old in a tanning booth — tell us she entered Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Thursday night.

We’re told Tanning Mom realized she had hit rock bottom after she was placed in detox for 30 hours at an airport in Minneapolis last week … for being way too drunk to fly…

As for why she ended up at Lukens — a rehab center endorsed by Michael Lohan — we’re told TM reached out to Michael about treatment because the two went to high school together … and she heard Michael mention Lukens’ unique treatment and success in a recent interview.

TMZ even has a photo of these two together. I don’t believe for a minute that Krentcil reached out to Michael Lohan asking for help. In the paparazzi videos I’ve seen of this lady, she can barely string a sentence together. I doubt she sobered up momentarily and thought Michael Lohan would be her salvation. That scenario makes no sense.

Michael Lohan had a rehab he needed to promote, and since he couldn’t convince his entitled daughter to make yet another rehab switch, he used a different “celebrity” for publicity. He probably gave Krentcil a free stint in rehab plus a cash incentive. The fact that Lindsay’s dad is now using Internet memes to earn headlines should Lindsay to the fact that she needs to stay far away from him. That and the fact that he’s an abusive, opportunistic a-hole who will turn on anyone at a moment’s notice.

Just think, though, Lindsay could end up in rehab with Tanning Mom! Lindsay would probably mean girl and ignore Krentcil, just like she did with Brooke Mueller. Only Krentcil’s brain is so addled she wouldn’t even notice. She would pat Lindsay on the head and tell her that her fake bake was a good start. Lindsay, this is your future.

    Where is Tan Mom’s little girl right now? I work with 4 and 5 year olds and I can tell you that being placed in foster care is terrible, frightening and awful for them. No matter how bad it was with their biological parents, and no matter how good and kind the foster parents are, the children just want their mamas. It makes me so mad when parents can’t get it together for the sake of their small child. Tan Mom seems so unstable she may never get her child back. Does anyone know what is going on for that poor little girl right now?

    Those two went to the same high school?
    Small crazy world of Z listers!

  3. MsAubra says:

    LMAO YOOOOOO Who saw those pics of her posing on the beach?!? You couldn’t tell that broad she wasn’t giving Kate Upton a run for her money!

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      I thought they were incredibly sad. The woman is one step away from living in the gutter talking to people who aren’t really there. And she has a 5 year-old little girl who needs her mama. The situation is not one that invokes mirth in me.

  4. poppy says:

    perfect. he’s now tan mom’s manager?
    under his and mommy dearest’s management, lindsay’s is only 5 years off from looking just like tan mom. she already acts like her.
    tan mom should be thrilled he didn’t find her any sooner and is not her actual “dad”.

  5. Syko says:

    I never thought I’d ever say this, but Tan Mom could really use some lip plumping. Her mouth is just the oddest thing ever.

  6. Sisi says:

    everytime I see pictures of tanmom, I feel the desperate urge to slather my face with moisturizer

  7. judyjudy says:

    What? This makes my brain hurt. Gross people.

  8. Ruyana says:

    Michael Lohan is a grifter, a slimey POS. He’s in it for himself and completely without real feelings. He says what he thinks sounds good to people. Between Michael and Dina, two of the most self-centered people on the planet, their kids really never stood much of a chance.

    And Tan Mom’s mouth looks so simian, ape-like, she’s a delusional mess.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    Maybe her brought her to Lindsay’s rehab so her could present her as a cautionary tale, because that’s where she’s headed.

  10. Mandy says:

    Why the he11 is she carrying a toy train set??

  11. GT says:

    What is wrong with her mouth and teeth?? Is it ill fitting dentures?? Something is so wrong here on all levels….

  12. Birdix says:

    there’s something sad about all this–she really needs help.

  13. Decloo says:

    That’s pretty much the death knell for the Lukens Institute.

  14. lisa says:

    she looks like someone that has been homeless in the desert for 50 yrs

    or an old saddle

    actually if you left a saddle out in the desert for 50 yrs, it would likely look better than this

  15. Legal Annie says:

    I bet he brought her to Rehab to teach Lindsay what she’ll look like in 5 years.

  16. Baskingshark says:

    Please add captions to these pics – these days I can’t tell which one is Tanning Mom and which is Lindsay Lohan.

  17. Gabriella says:

    Tan Mon look A LOT like Dina Lohan! I guess this is what Dina would look like if she didn’t have money…

  18. Bread and Circuses says:

    All Vagina-Kicker could talk about after Lindsay was sentenced was how she wanted to check into this Lukens place.

    When she didn’t (I doubt she was returning her father’s calls at that point), all he could talk about was how she wanted to switch rehabs to the Lukens Institute.

    And now ol’ Vagina-Kicker is pouring Tan Mom into the place amid great fanfare.

    Clearly, the Lukens institute has only a gnat’s scrotum worth of integrity.

    And clearly, they got mad at Vagina-Kicker not delivering on his promise of SOOPER-DOOPER, LINDSAY-LOHAN-GOT-THE-DTs-HERE publicity.

    Michael Lohan probably just got confused and thought it was LiLo.
