Patricia Krentcil made headlines for her obsession with tanning and accusations she had taken her 6-year-old daughter to the tanning salon.

But now she's "gone pale."

In Touch challenged Krentcil to give up her tanning booth sessions for one month in exchange for a photo shoot with the magazine.

"I feel weird and pale," the 44-year-old Nutley, N.J., mom told In Touch.

Krentcil admitted her friends and family think she looks much better without her extreme tan, but she disagrees and will "likely squeeze in a tan here or there" in the future.

She pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges in May after authorities accused her of taking her 6-year-old daughter tanning, causing a severe sunburn, CBS News reported.

Krentcil has said her daughter got sunburned from being outside and playing in the back yard.
