Farrah Abraham recently made the career leap to stripper (it wasn’t a big leap) and said it was for "research purposes." But a week later, her true intentions appear to have come out.

The Teen Mom star reportedly began working as a server at Palazio Gentlemen's Club in Austin, Texas, about a month ago, but quickly moved from cocktail waitress to dancer. Abraham said the move would help her in her future acting career.

"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," she told E! News at the time. "It's how I get the information to write my books and do my movies."

But it looks like the job may actually be for the oldest reason in the world — cold hard cash. Radar Online reports that Abraham's position is part of the Celebrity House Feature at the club, which is supposed to bring in big bucks. The site said Abraham will be taking in $544,000 for the job — and the club is charging $2,500 for an hour to watch her or $500 for 10 minutes.

"It benefits everybody," a manager of Palazio reportedly told Radar. "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."

Abraham and porn star, James Deen, released their sex tape last year and Abraham attempted to profit off that soon after. She invited a photographer to join her for a pole dance class in Austin — a hobby that has apparently turned into her real-life job.
