Farrah Abraham: I'm stripping for research, just like Jen Aniston

"In the same way Jennifer Aniston researched her role as a stripper, that's what I'm doing."

That's how former 'Teen Mom' star turned porn star Farrah Abraham explained her new job stripping at an Austin club to E! News. She's just like Aniston, who stripped in last year's big budget comedy "We're the Millers."

"A friend of mine works there and I'm researching," she said. "I've been trying out all the roles that make up a gentleman's club, including cocktailing and dancing. There's management and there's cooking too."

(Remember, Abraham, 23, also has said she's trying to start a fro-yo franchise.)

A source identified the adult establishment as the Palazio Gentlemen's Club in Austin, and told E! News: "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."

    That's a lot of research.

    "It's how I get the information to write my books and do my movies," Abraham said. "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."
