Farrah Abraham Is Working In An Austin Strip Club… For Research, You See

The Farrah Abraham saga is long and storied and frequently travels through the back door, so I won’t recap it all for you here. But suffice it to say, the star of Backdoor Teen Mom is not as good a career planner as she is an actress, though she does give incredible interviews. Today’s story, about Ms. Abraham’s latest gig at Palazio Gentlemen’s Club (501 E. Ben White Blvd.) in Austin, combines the latter two factors.

“She was hired a couple of weeks ago as a cocktail waitress but wanted to make more money dancing, so they moved her up to the stage,” the insider dished. “She was on all three stages, the main stage and two side stages.”

Is there not a backdoor stage? That’s where she really shines. Aw, don’t ever change, easy jokes.

“I’m doing research,” the 23-year-old explains to E! News exclusively. “A friend of mine works there and I’m researching. 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. 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.”

Ahh, see, she’s not stripping, she’s just job shadowing the cooks at the strip club, possibly for another Christian parenting book. I love this girl. That’s why I go to strip clubs too, incidentally, I’m just listening to the women’s stories and trying to get informed. Like what Jynx will do for singles, I think we really connected.

The gentlemen’s club source tells us guys were swarming the stage with money when Abraham was on stage. At one point, she laid down on her back and ripped her bra off.

“She was definitely not shy and looked like she knew what she was doing,” the insider said. “She was wearing a nude thong and bejeweled bra. She wasn’t awkward at all and was actually quite good.” [E! News]

Sure, she looked like she knew what she was doing on stage, but how was she behind the fryer? Anyway, I wish her the best of luck. And before you laugh at her strip-yourself-to-a-screenwriting-Oscar plan, consider: it worked out pretty well for Diablo Cody. Sure, Farrah Abraham is doing it all in a different order, but there’s no reason to believe she couldn’t still sneak into acclaim through the backdoor (*silently congratulates self*).

I tried to do something similar for my career, but the strip club manager told me the building wasn’t zoned for the speed of my hip thrusts. True story. (*dances to Motley Crue, cat blown off coffee table*)
