Patricia Krentcil, the “feisty accused in April of taking her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning bed with her, was once an aspiring model, it has come to light.

In photos taken at the time she was applying to a modeling agency, Krentcil had yet to sport her much-discussed toasted look, reports the New York Post, which spoke to Krentcil’s husband, Rich, outside his Nutley, N.J., home Tuesday.

“As far as I know, that was her,” he confirmed about the photos, while admitting not to know who took the shots or how they might have suddenly reappeared.

“It was probably a good, at least 15 years ago,” he said about when they would have been taken.
