Patricia Krentcil, the woman widely known as the "Tanning Mom," was reportedly booted off a stage for her drunken behavior during a recent appearance at a New York City drag show.

The 44-year-old made national headlines after being arrested for allegedly taking her 5-year-old daughter in to a tanning booth. She attended the Aug. 29 show at XL Club on 42nd street, and witnesses claim that she displayed erratic and drunken behavior while being roasted by the show's host.
Sources claim that the New Jersey mother yelled profanities at audience members, kicked over her wine glass, exposed herself and even tried to "attack" the drag queen hosting the event, according to The New York Post.
"She showed up for the red carpet and fell over," one witness told The Post. "She then got up and tried to attack the drag queen."
Krentcil, who was sporting her infamous tan, was allegedly slurring her words and took offense to the lighthearted comedy.
"We asked her what she wanted to drink and she slurred, 'I didn't put my kid in a tanning bed!'" said Bianca del Rio, one of the evening's hosts.
Del Rio eventually realized that Krentcil could be a problem.
"We came up with a code word earlier. It was 'Christmas.' After about five minutes, we were just screaming 'Christmas,' and security came and took her out," the host explained.
Krentcil, who admitted that her tanning habits are excessive, pleaded not guilty to second-degree child endangerment following accusations that she was tanning with her daughter, and she previously claimed to be a "wonderful mother" outside of a court room.
Krentcil insisted that her daughter was never exposed to the tanning booth's UV rays and although critics alleged that her daughter's sunburn is proof that she is lying, she claimed that her daughter got sunburned while playing outside on a warm day.
The case is said to be ongoing and Krentcil remains confident that all charges will soon be dropped.
