Dial-A-Star lets callers talk to celebrities - for a hefty price
D-list Hollywood hotline Dial-A-Star is giving new meaning to the term buzz-hungry celebrity.
Everyone from Lindsay Lohan's parents, former "Jersey Shore" vixen Angelina Pivarnick, Real Housewife Danielle Staub and Friday additions Flavor Flav and Tiger Woods mistress Loredana Jolie have signed on to turn their buzzing phones into cold hard cash.
Users pay anywhere from $5 to $25 a minute to connect with the object of their obsession and enjoy "completely discreet one on one conversations," the dialastar.com website promises.
"It's fun. You get to talk to lots of fans," Pivarnick, 24, told the Daily News when reached through the service Friday.
"Some guys try to have phone sex with me. They ask me what I'm wearing, what kind of thongs I wear. I'm like, 'Ew, are you fat and old? What do you look like?'" she told The News, at a rate of $15 per minute. "I amuse it. I've made more than $3,000 so far."
The website, which launched last week, splits the proceeds 50-50 with each star, founder Gina Rodriguez of DD Management told The News.
She said Staub is leading her current stable of some 30 celebs with $9,000 in calls, and hundreds more personalities from reality TV and professional sports are "bombarding" her to join.
"We're really looking to bring in some big names," she said, admitting pregnant "Jersey Shore" diva Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tops her wish list.
"It's so appealing because the celebrities can take a call and then sign in, do an immediate withdrawal with PayPal and go buy lunch," she said. "They can talk while they're shopping and say, "I gotta take one more call before I buy that.'"
