Would you pay $25 a minute to talk to Dina Lohan? Cause you can.

Whoever set up this new “DialAStar” (link has automatic sound) business venture is a genius. Just charge people exorbitant fees to talk to D-listers and reality stars, and then pocket 50% of the profits. “Celebrities,” porn and reality stars charge anywhere from $10 to $25 a minute, and for that bargain price you can talk to them about topics that they’re comfortable with. Dial-a-star participants include Octomom, Tila Tequila, Dina and Michael Lohan, Kate Major, Crystal Harris and former Charlie Sheen victim Capri Anderson. Here’s more on the service, thanks to TMZ:

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.

I’m a “journalist” and could potentially call up to get some quotes from Michael or Dina Lohan, or maybe even the Octomom. The FAQ for the site specifies that the “celebrities” have topics they’re willing to talk about, meaning that while Michael Lohan is probably up from some dirty/violent talk, his ex wife will just drunkenly shoot you down and slur about how Lindsay is a working actress slandered by the media. (Danielle Staub or Tila Tequila would be game for it though.) Plus it would cost me from $600 to $1500 an hour for the privilege! Even if I could get either of these fools to open up over the phone, it’s not like their quotes are worth that much. They’ve saturated the media with their family drama already, and we know Octo is just batsh*t and old news. So maybe this isn’t that genius of an idea. I’d rather talk to Miss Cleo and know where my future is headed. The psychics cost as low as a dollar a minute and they’re probably friendlier and easier to talk to. For $60 you only get a commercial break’s time with Dina Lohan.

    is this real? or an article from The Onion?

  2. brin says:

    WTF…I wouldn’t want to talk to these bottom feeders for free, why would I pay to talk with them?!

  3. sarah says:

    I wouldn’t want to talk to any of those names for free let alone for $10-$20 an hour.

    • Searching4grace says:

      Oh, that wasn’t an HOUR, that was a MINUTE. It really tells you how high an opinion these people have of themselves (and how desperately they need a reality check). Hell, come sit next to me long enough, I’ll talk to you for free.

  4. Jackie says:

    i wonder if it is really them you talk to? i guess, legally it has to be.

    would dina lohan really be willing to listen to people call her names for an extended period of time over the phone?

    how do they monitor the topics?

    i have so many questions. this is crazy, but brilliant.

  5. Cleveland Girl says:

    The world has obviously gone nuts.

  6. Seymour Butts says:

    If I were to even think of dialing up, I’d at least want to talk to an intelligent life form, and none of the listed participants are intelligent life forms, in the least, none of them. Michael Lohan is not a celebrity, he’s a piece of shit. The others are idiots.

  7. Franny says:

    It just makes me sick to see these pictures. How messed up she must be in her hair.

    Its gross.

    Also, I’m going to start a company where you get to talk to professionals, doctors, lawyers, authors and environmentalists for the sake of talking to someone who is actually doing something in this world other than being a punchline.

    • tripmom says:

      They already have companies where you can pay per minute to talk to lawyers. They’re called “law offices.” I believe doctors have a similar arrangement.

  8. fabgrrl says:

    I might be willing to pay that much to verbally b*tch slap her for a minute.

  9. dorothy says:

    It is now official. Her career has hit rock bottom. Bye, bye….

  10. Alexis says:

    I’d like to see the people who actually pay for these services. Seriously…

  11. Eileen says:

    OMG how embarrassing.

  12. lucy2 says:

    For $0, you could hit yourself in the head with a hammer. Same results, probably.

    Wonder if Dina got the “by the hour” idea from what we all suspect Linnocent is doing to earn money these days.
    I bet Michael Lohan is pissed he’s cheaper than Octomom.

  13. gigi says:

    And for $10 more you might get a little “extra.” For $50 she’ll throw in Lindsay too.

  14. Briamatia says:

    Did you see how horrible linzay’s tan is in the last picture, around her legs!?? Oh my god! Honestly!

  15. Lisa says:

    omg, Tila!! I’d forgotten all about her and her Chunky miscarriage, and that was how I liked it.

  16. Deb says:

    These people would make more money if they allowed themselves to be punched in the face for $25 a pop.

  17. LMB says:

    They should be paying me for talking to them!

  18. Emily says:

    If anybody does end up calling in, please report back to us! I’m curious (but too cheap to go through with it myself haha).

  19. Izzy says:

    Wow. I just threw up a little in my mouth. Note to self: be careful dialing numbers so you don’t call in to one of those idiots… LMFAO. I LOVE this site.

  20. hillbillygirl45 says:

    Just about the time I think I’ve heard it all….this pretty much tops everything else. Who in the cornbread hell would want to talk to that loony bitch?! And like someone else said, I’d really like to see the caliber of people who actually make these calls….yuck!

  21. logan says:

    I could also lick the sidewalk, but I won’t be doing either. I will from now on call her by her new nickname
    “LIMBO” as in how low can you go.
    Get some self respect.

  22. Bess says:

    Just when I thought Dina & Michael Lohan couldn’t sink any lower. No wonder why Lindsay is such a narcissistic, thieving glob of entitlement.

  23. mjai says:

    I just want to know if they have to work in a call center with a head set or if they can just answer calls on their cell while they’re driving or whatever. I would like to think they’re at the call center.

    • Thinking says:

      The only people wearing headsets are the operators that select the soundboard recordings to feed to the caller. They select the recordings that best fit the caller’s questions or comments.

  24. Thinking says:

    I just want to save some of you some money by letting you know that what you talk to when calling these things is a soundboard. Notice on the Dial-a-Star website there is no mention of the word “live”. That is an important and deliberate omission. It covers them legally when people figure out what’s really going on.

    The company has the celebs make various conversational and reactionary recordings in a sound studio. The company knows the calls will be short in duration because of the expense, so each celebrity soundboard is created with that in mind. Canned responses to the handful of questions that will inevitably be repeated ad nauseum.

    These celebs are not sitting around glued to their phones all day talking to strangers that are likely verbally abusing them anyway. It’s just not happening. It’s a cleverly worded, repackaged, time-tested scam and they are making money hand over fist from it. Don’t give them any more.

    • Thinking says:

      I stand corrected. Based on the call TMZ put through to Milo, it seems they actually do answer the phone themselves. At least, he did THAT time. What I want to know is, what happens when they need to sleep? Eat? Poo? Perhaps I’m only half wrong and they use the soundboard for the off-hours. Who knows. It is all pretty bizarre.

  25. dragonlady sakura says:

    Wow, the stupidity. I want to meet the people idiotic enough to call these hotlines and introduce them to my cousin from Nigeria, who wants to lend them some money…

  26. Helen says:

    Wow. That first picture. It could be captioned: “look at my drunk puppet that I created” – Dina

    • OhMyMy says:

      Agreed. That is one of the classic pics of her. She has a such a herp-derp totally out of it look on her face. Looks like she needs cartoon bubbles popping around her head. Sooo classy.

  27. Paula says:

    Did u ever see a more disgusting family besides the kardasians!

  28. sarah says:

    Heck no I wouldn’t pay that. If I want to hear someone talk stupid, then I can just listen to my mother for free.
