Reality star, writer, business owner, entrepreneur -- and now Farrah Abraham can add “stripper” to her résumé after the television personality landed a gig at Palazio Gentlemen's Club in Austin, E! News reported Thursday. The former “Teen Mom” star described her new profession as “educational” and compared herself to Jennifer Aniston, who played a stripper in “We’re the Millers.”
"I'm doing research," the 23-year-old told the news site. “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.”

She told E! News her future endeavors will be influenced by her work as a stripper, but she would not discuss upcoming ventures. “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 is adapting to her new role well. "She was definitely not shy and looked like she knew what she was doing," the insider told E! News. "She was wearing a nude thong and bejeweled bra. She wasn't awkward at all and was actually quite good. 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. She was on all three stages, the main stage and two side stages."

Abraham penned the trilogy “Celebrity Sex Tape,” an erotic series about a girl who makes a sex tape with an adult entertainer. She has said she would choose more “wholesome” roles in the future.
