Tanning Mom admits her kids are having a hard time with all the attention and tries to prove that she’s a good mother and wife. Watch the new interview and vote — do YOU agree that she’s a good parent?

After causing a media firestorm and being jabbed by Kim Kardashian, Snooki and SNL, the still very tanned Patricia Krentcil spoke out against her critics. She says every allegation is “completely wrong” and just wants her family to be left alone.

Charged with second-degree child endangerment for burning her then five-year-old daughter Anna after a trip to a tanning salon in April, the mother of four has been able to handle all the negativity but she worries about her kids. “They’re mad they’re picking on mommy again,” the New Jersey mom told the TODAY show on May 21.

Patricia maintained that she is a good parent: “I’m up at 3 in the morning, making sure all the wash is done. My husband goes to work at 4:30.” She said makes pancakes and helps her four kids get ready for school, and then she works “all day inside and outside the house.”

Later in the video, the 44-year-old said, “I’m sorry I’m tan. I can be tan; it just feels good. But I really think that these moms and dads or whoever, need to step off and step away.”

Patricia still believes her child endangerment charges are false, claiming that her fair-haired daughter received burns from playing outside. “It was beautiful out. And they were in the pool…She’s a redhead. She got sunburned.”

At the end of the interview, Patricia said people who judge her should “look in the mirror and look at yourself, instead of looking at me.” She said she is “disgusted” with the whole debacle.
