Patricia Krentcil isn’t feeling too much heat after she was skewered on this week’s Saturday Night Live by Kristen Wiig.
“It was well done,” the 44-year-old Nutley, New Jersey woman told the NY Post of the spoof. “The whole thing was hysterical.”
As we previously reported, Krentcil was arrested April 24 on a second-degree child endangerment charge, as authorities said she took her 6-year-old kindergartener daughter Anna into a stand-up tanning booth, where the child was burned. (According to New Jersey law, no one 13-years-old or younger is allowed to enter the booths.)
In subsequent media appearances following her arrest, Krentcil’s garnered attention for her extreme tan.
“I can’t blame [my critics] for being jealous,” Wiig said in the skit, channeling her inner Krentcil. “I am alluring in a way they’ll never be. Trust me, there are plenty of men in New Jersey who would love to snap into this Slim Jim!”
Also on the show, SNL Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers likened the golden woman to a “baseball glove.”
Krentcil said she’s surprised at all the media attention she’s received in the incident.
“If you think about it for a second, Iraq and Cuba we’re involved in now, but they care that I tan,” she said.
