The 23-year-old has tried her hand at many professions and now E! reports Abraham currently has a stripping gig at Palazio Gentlemen’s Club in Austin.

The former reality star tells E! that she started as a cocktail waitress a couple of weeks ago but decided to strip in order to make more money.

So why has she decided to strip? The reason might surprise you. Abraham claims it’s all for research!

“There’s management and there’s cooking too,” she told E! News. “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. It’s how I get the information to write my books and do my movies. 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.”

Uh huh…

Along with starting her new job, in July she released the first book from her erotic trilogy, “In the Making (Celebrity Sex Tape),” seeking to write a “better” version of E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades Of Grey.”
