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 ... 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

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.

I don't want to talk to any of them for free, why would I pay to talk to them. This bunch of Z-Listers that TMZ has made famous has sunk as low as it gets, trying to make money just so people can listen to the crap that comes out of their mouths. This world has officially gone crazy.

This should be we get paid to talk to them. None of these people are stars to me and aren't worth it any amount of money to get paid to talk to anyone. Why the hell would I want to talk to any of these people. They never tell the truth and they always blame others for their problems. This is just ludicrous.

I should start up a dead celebrity phone line. $1 a minute. Ring ring. "This is Emilia Earheart. What do you want to talk about?" Caller: "Emilia? You sound like a man!" Me: "Yeah, well your voice changes when you die. Get over it."

Mike is going to have to take up a collection around TMZ's office to support his calls to Nadya.

A person would have to be drunk, high off drugs, or a teenager who got a hold to their parents credit cards to spend that much money a minute to speak with these D-list wannabe celebs.

Why is Tila Tequila's name up there? Isn't she suppose to be brain dead or close to it from her aneurysm?

The management is probably getting 60% of the take. Bunch of nonsense.

Well I broke down and bought the Michael Lohan package.
Talked to him for 10 minutes a few days ago and today for 25 minutes.
He told me he would think about me and my family and hoped to hear from me again.
I also bought a pair of Lindsay Lohans underwear from him for $4.75.

Sure...while normal people are struggling to pay their bills lets pay D list celebs (who have plenty of money already Im sure) $10+ per minute just to talk to them. A lot of people out there would work their butt off for $10 per HOUR!!!
