It seems strange to us that New Jersey's Tan Mom hasn't spent more time in L.A. After all, this is the place to be if you want to make a career out of being a fake celebrity, isn't it?
But now you can stop waiting to see this super-duper-star in person, because 44-year-old (44? Really?) Patricia Krentcil, a.k.a. tan
great-grandmother mom is coming to town.
Not only that, but -- hold on to your white Ray-Bans, hipsters -- this mother is going to twerk. Allegedly:
First, let's get you up to speed in case you haven't been watching TMZ in the last year or so. Tan Mom is the woman who was arrested after allegedly sneaking her young daughter into a tanning salon.
The girl complained of burns from her apparent deep tanning, but it was the photos of the madre and her deep chocolate hue that made Krentcil an F-list celeb.
Fast forward to now and Ms. Mom is making waves for appearing in a gay porn called Kings of New York 2.
And on Monday Krentcil is doing a stand-up routine at The Parlor Hollywood, 7250 Melrose Ave. Her set was scheduled for 9 p.m. and is billed as a marathon comedy session.
In a statement sent to the Weekly and other outlets, her rep (yes, she has a Hollywood rep) says:

She gets 7 minutes on the stage and we hear some of her skit is twerking.
This sounds momentous. And for all you ladies out there planning on being Tan Mom for Halloween, here's your chance to study up.
