Former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham is now keeping busy doing research on how to run an adult establishment — at least that’s how she explains her new job as a stripper at the Palazio Gentlemen’s Club in Austin.
“A friend of mine works there and I’m researching,” she said. “I’ve been trying out all the roles that make up a gentleman’s club, including cocktailing and dancing. There’s management and there’s cooking too.”
She says her work there can be likened to how Jennifer Aniston prepared for her role as a stripper in the film We’re the Millers, the big budget comedy in which Aniston starred with Jason Sudeikis.
“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.” Abraham said.

According to Abraham, this research has even allowed her to learn more than she initially expected:
“I’ve learned that this industry has class, strength, and has taught me life skills to better myself for my daughter’s future. I’m thankful and shocked that my job shadowing has lead me to another amazing opportunity. Palazio Gentlemen’s Club has shown me and other women how we should be respected, treated, and cared for and not to settle for less.”
Abraham was initially hired to wait tables, and was later offered to work as a stripper. “The club loved how hardworking and focused I was,” said the 23-year-old mother of one. “So they offered me a $544,000 agreement to be a celebrity house feature.”
Palazio, through their manager BeBe Montgomery, also said: “It benefits everybody. It’s really fun. I hired Farrah as a waitress about a month ago and then we talked about it. She decided to switch to dancing. And then we talked again and came to an agreement for six figures. We’re really happy and excited.”

The agreement will have Abraham work do research at the club two nights a week, Wednesdays and Fridays, through the end of the year.
