Being accused of taking a 6-year-old daughter into a tanning bed is not a gracious thing, but "Saturday Night Live" has managed to draw a chuckle with the controversy. In the latest edition of the NBC variety show, Kristen Wiig channeled the "tanning mom" Patricia Krentcil and appeared in Weekend Update with Seth Meyers to respond to the allegations.
"Tanning beds should only be used by responsible adults because you may not know this, Seth, but some people overtan," she said in the sketch. Believing she is not overtan, she explained her statement that those who criticize her are "fat, ugly and jealous". "Though I can't blame them for being jealous. I am alluring in a way they will never be," so she claimed.
Meyers didn't agree with her last statement and guessed her age to be 200. He additionally said that she looks like a baseball glove. Wiig's Krentcil, who frequently wheezed from dehydration throughout the sketch and blamed it on the dry air in the studio, went on saying she has the look every woman dreams of, which is "Wile E. Coyote right after something's blown up in his face."
Also this weekend, Wiig grabbed the headlines for wrestling with her "Bridesmaids" co-writer Annie Mumolo on the stage of the 2012 Comedy Awards, which premiered on Sunday, May 6 night. Taking the mic to deliver their speech as the recipient of Best Screenplay award, they fought over who would get custody of the statue.
