Kim Kardashian, the prankster? This reality star certainly knows how to cause a ruckus in the blogosphere.

Patricia "Tanning Mom" Krentcil stole national attention with her leathery bronze look after first making headlines for allegedly bringing her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning bed. Now, news savvy Kardashian seems to be going after the same over-the-top glow, tweeting a photo of herself looking unrecognizably tan.

"The tannerexic mom has some serious competition!!! LOL," Kardashian tweeted.

But don't worry, the reality star quickly admitted that the super bronzed photo showed only a temporary tan.

"Relax that's just a spray tan!!! It washed off & I'm back to my normal tan self! But how crazy does it look after being on for 8 hours!" she clarified minutes later.
