The woman called “Tan Mom” passed a lie detector test on the nationally-syndicated TV show The Test proving she DID NOT put her five-year-old daughter in a tanning booth.
The alleged incident happened in May 2012 and Patricia says she has been living with this “nightmare” ever since.
But the 45-year-old’s erratic behavior doesn’t help her cause. She often speaks with slurred speech, poses topless at random beaches and even fell to the ground during a public appearance at a gay bar.
So, she finally went to rehab in June.
She taped her daytime talk show appearance before she got sober and was “untestable” three times because of drug and alcohol use.
After she completed rehab, Patricia appeared on the show again and finally took the test and passed.
This is how Tan Mom described what really happened with his five-year-old daughter:
“It was a sunny day – I was outside gardening and she was in the kiddie pool,” the tabloid celebrity says. “We were just outside. She’s a red head and right here got a little bit of a rash. So it itched her. When she went to school – the teacher took her to the nurse – and the nurse called the cops … This is how the ridiculous thing began.”
