Farrah Abraham Is Working At A Texas Strip Club

From "Teen Mom" to a sex tape, from a memoir to erotica, Farrah Abraham has tried her hand at many professions. Now, she is working at a Texas strip club.

E! News reports Abraham currently has a stripping gig at Palazio Gentlemen's Club in Austin. She was first hired as a cocktail waitress a couple of weeks ago, but moved to the stage to make more money dancing.

Abraham claims it's all for research. The purpose of the so-called research, however, has not been disclosed.

"There's management and there's cooking too," she told E! News. "It's job shadowing that I hope pays off. In the same way Jennifer Aniston researched her role as a stripper, that's what I'm doing. It's how I get the information to write my books and do my movies. Unfortunately, I'm not free to talk about what those future projects may be. But I'm interested in hearing all the women's stories. And while I'm doing it, I'm getting paid. I'm getting paid to play a role and get informed."

The 23-year-old is not the only pseudo-celeb to try stripping. "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub signed a deal to strip at Scores Gentleman's Club in New York in 2011. Nadya Suleman, otherwise known as "Octomom," got a $20,000 to strip at West Palm Beach's T's Lounge last year.

Abraham has had quite a busy summer. Along with starting her new job, she also released the first book from her erotic trilogy, "In the Making (Celebrity Sex Tape)," in July. She sought to write a "better" version of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades Of Grey."
