New Job Pays $1,000 AN HOUR

3/20/2012 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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
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.

Who on earth would:

A) Who'd be interested in these losers?
B) Who'd waste the time talking to them, watching paint dry is more entertaining
C) Who'd waste their money on these losers?
D) Danielle Staub, she has fans?

While I think nothing else can shock and surprise me, this comes along. WOW! Who in their right mind would ever pay up to $20 per minute to talk to these rejects??? Aren't they embarrassed to even be a part of this? I mean, how low can you sink? Just speaks volumes about the class of the Z-list "celebrities".

This story is misleading and not news. At $20 a minute, if someone booked her for 1 hour she gets $1200 gross but her take is 50% according to the website, so she gets $60......0 per hour. So for her to make $60......00 she would have had to be on the phone for 10 hours, that's 600 minutes. No way I believe that. Also, there are many talk to a celebrity sites out there. This isn't the only one. Gina the porn star owner is tight with Harvey and feeds him Tiger and Lohan info so he's shilling it for her. Canseco was doing 1900-Canseco 15 years ago. This is old news. Come on TMZ, give us some real news. This is like the shoe shine guy who shines your shoes in 1 minute for $7 so his hourly rate is $420.

Funny how Octoscam wants $12 a minute to chat. Twelve is the number of embryos she insisted on having transferred. Twelve! She wanted to be rich and famous so she schemed to have a litter. Pretty low when you don't care about endangering your own babies just so you can be rich and famous. Think about it - twelve. She just goes from one scam to another.
