sandra lee tanning mom met gala Met Costume Gala 2012: Is that Sandra Lee or Tanning Mom?Celebrity cook Sandra Lee turned out for the 2012 Met Costume Institute Gala dressed to impress. She also may have hit the tanning booth one too many times before hitting the red carpet.

If it weren’t for the blinged out dress, we might have thought Tanning mom — aka New Jersey’s Patricia Krentcil — had secured an invitation. Krentcil was arrested for child endangerment after allegedly taking her five-year-old daughter to a tanning salon.

What do you think? Did Lee overbake herself? Does she look like Tanning Mom or what?
