Having hailed from the Garden State myself, I hate to criticize one of my New Jersey home girls. Yet just as I am disgusted by Jersey Shore, I'm concerned about -- and a little freaked out by -- Patricia Krentcil, the Jersey mom who allegedly brought her five-year-old daughter with her into a tanning both with her to get a little -- or a lot of -- color. I'm sorry, but this sort of obsessive need for a tan really makes me see red. So here, then, is my red hot playlist meant to stop the madness and simultaneously exploit it for a few cheap laughs.
