Jersey Shore‘ star Snooki has finally found a way to make some dough, after getting fired from her job for being on the controversial reality show.

The 21-year-old, self-proclaimed ‘Princess of Poughkeepsie’ rocked out for a pole dance at the Seminole Hard Rock club in Florida over the weekend – and got paid a hefty $10,000 appearance fee.

This is the MTV star’s typical booking fee to make appearances at clubs, bars and special events. Pauly D and The Situation are said to make around $7,500 per appearance for partying with club goers.

Snooki was fired from her job for having to do promotional appearances for the MTV show. “I was a receptionist at a corporation,” she said to E!. “I was getting decent money, like $13 an hour. I got fired when I asked for time off to go to L.A.”
