Danielle Staub

New Job Pays $1,000 AN HOUR

Forget "Real Housewives" ... Danielle Staub is now earning over $1,000 AN HOUR to chat on the phone with fans ... and here's a shocker, she doesn't even need to talk dirty.

The former reality villain has joined forces with a website called Dial-A-Star.com ... connecting fans with z-list celebs at a premium price ... Staub gets $18-per-minute.

And she isn't the only one cashing in ...

Tila Tequila -------- $20-per-minute
Dina Lohan ------- $18-per-minute
OctoMom ---------- $12-per-minute
Michael Lohan --- $10-per-minute

There's more ... including "Jersey Shore" cast-off Angelina Pivarnick, Charlie Sheen's tryst Capri Anderson, and Hugh Hefner's ex-fiancee Crystal Harris.

We're told the site's been blowing up since it launched last week ... with Staub taking the honors as the top earner ... raking in $6,000 in calls since the launch. Angelina and Michael Lohan are tied for second with over $3,000 each, followed by Octomom at $1,260.

And here we thought these people might have to get real jobs soon. Silly us.

You report this 5 hours AFTER KTLA reported it and yet you still get the information wrong. You are reporting the cost per minute of the phone call. The "semi-famous people" you can call get HALF that money. So Staub could earn up to $540 per hour and only if someone talks for the whole hour.

Also, I'm guessing you are taking the company's word that this is a huge success. What do you think they are going to say?

Brilliant. LOL. I have no idea who is STUPID enough to pay money to call them, but it's a pretty clever idea. I have to say though, I don't believe Staub is top earner. Someone is lying. She's literally a nobody.

This story would have more credibility if ONE person who called them was actually quoted.

Who would want to call ANY of them? Seriously, who are you people who are calling them? Don't give your hard earned money over to attention seeking drama addicted has-beens.

Celebrities Suck    

the funniest part of this is that stu!pd fans will call these so called celeb that could careless about them. They only want your money and these so called celeb will keep you online because they are making money by keeping you on the phone. Why not call someone that gives a flying fck about you?

better yet, donate the money that deserves it these celeb don't deserve the money. Michael Lohan is a great example, he needs money to support his habit, Tila Tequila needs to find a job because she's not even famous, why is she famous again?

i doubt those amount are correct. this info is coming from the person who owns the site who is also their manager. she has vested interest in making this sound like it's doing well. i don't believe for a second they are getting that many calls at those prices.
