Oh my god. "Dial a Star".. Pay $10-$20 a minute to talk to D listers
Michael Lohan, Dina Lohan, Jeremy London, Octomom, Chris Crocker, Jeremy Jackon, Thom Bierdz, Tia Tequila, Daniells Staub, Johnny Fairplay, Brace.. And there are more, but those are the only names I recognize.
That is hilarious, OP. Wonder how come Chris Crocker demands top rate $20 while Octomom has to settle for a pawltry $12.
[quote] has to settle for a pawltry $12.
Oh my, this is just awful. And hilarious. I really thought OP was joking.
I guess there is stratification even within the D-list community, although I think it is very generous to even D-list with these "celebs". Poor Eric Tyson, whoever he is. Only $8 per minute to talk to him.
Fuck, It's 5:00 on a shitty Monday and I made a fucking typo. Oh, Dear.
Can you imagine all the shit people will talk to people like Dina and Michael Lohan??
This is even worse than those terrible z list autograph conventions.
Someone call Thom Bierdz and ask about his huge, ledgendary, milky loads.
Mindy Hall is one of them, and she's not even an actress, she's a make-up person.
[quote]Mindy Hall is a makeup artist who has worked on films such as Star Trek (2009), World Trade Center (2006), Pearl Harbor (2001) and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010). She won her Oscar for Best Makeup in 2010, for her work on Star Trek.
I don't recognize any of them except the Lohans.
poor Jeremy london - had a crush on him once upon a time.
I am tempted to call M Lohan to ask him about his muscles and his fishnet top in that picture.
Now, why on earth would a makeup artist who just won an Oscar a few years ago have to do this? And who the hell would want to talk to her?
How does this work, do you make an appointment, or do the D- listers spend all day at home, waiting for the phone to ring?
Not that any of them have anything better to do.
I wonder what percentage the star gets? Anyone who is Thom Bierdz's Facebook friend care to share if he's posted about this??
"Sorry, Dina Lohan went out for a pack of cigs & some tonic water. Octomom's available, though & this we're featuring a 'buy 10, get 5 free' with her, if you use MasterCard."
Looks like they are on call for certain hours. Some say "call now" and others say "make an appointment."
Say what you will about these Z-listers, but what does this say about the people who would pay money--or who even have the desire--to talk to these faux celebrities?
[quote]Some say "call now" and others say "make an appointment."
That's the sad part. Are they just sitting there staring at the phone and hoping someone calls? Praying someone wants to talk long enough to pay the electric bill that's due on Friday?
The advertising about how private the calls are--no one is listening, no one is recording--suggest that you can get a bit more than a private version of "Leave Britney Alone" from Chris Crocker.
30 of the people listed I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO THE FUCK THEY ARE !!
Could you buy Chris Crocker for 2 minutes and ask him to keep screaming "Leave Brittany Alone" ??
And who the hell is 'Kris Herzog' and why does he think he's worth $ 27 a minute ??
Poor 'Donald Farmer' (whoever you are ...) @ $ 5 a minute.
Thom Bierdz had his 50th birthday yesterday.
Apparently it really is all downhill from here.
Oh come on, someone dial Octomom and offer to buy a baby. See how much she wants!
Maybe Kirk Cameron will do phone sex.
[quote] How does this work, do you make an appointment, or do the D- listers spend all day at home, waiting for the phone to ring?
I'm guessing that they have cell phones so they don't have to always stay in one place. Also you likely probably put in your info and then they call YOU.
There used to be another site out there with a slightly better class of celebrities, mostly old sports stars but some actors and actresses, where you could hire them to call someone on their birthday or anniversary or whatever, and that one made sense.
You hired the retired quarterback from Dad's favorite pro team, and he called at 3pm on the dot and greeted Pop by name and said he just wanted to call and wish his favorite fan a happy 75th. I could see that. It's like hiring Santa, except for adults. I think that cost 2-300 dollars and there was an autographed photo or something involved.
With this one I can't imagine how a call could possibly last more than 5 minutes before you run out of things to say.
R22, at least tat makes sense.
I soooooooo want to ask Michael Lohan boring questions while I masturbate, as long as I KNOW it makes him uncomfortable.
I see AJ Benza, one of DL's favorite "WHET" people, is on the list.
Call him up and ask him: a) AJ, are you queer? and b) WHET your career? If he refuses to answer question b, tell him you have the answer: show business, ain't it a bitch!
$20 for Brace? Who is Brace?
R26, you should call him and report back to us. I've heard that talking to him is like having three orgasms at once.
How do the callers even know it's really the "celebs"? It could be some poor temp from Illinois pretending to be Dina Lohan.
Call them from a pharmacy's phone. They'll pick up on the first ring.
Hey, if anyone calls be sure and fill us all in. This sounds like a hoot. If I had money to burn I'd do it in a New York minute.
I wonder what Kathy Griffin would go for?
You could ask Chris Crocker to be the voice on your outgoing message. "Leave Anonymous ALONE!!!!" Is that worth paying for?
We could start a paypal account for contributions, post a bunch of questions, and designate a DLer to call AJ Benza to get all his dish.
KIM G?!!!! KIM FUCKING G!!!
What a bargain!
Wendy Williams calls Dina Lohan!
Let's call Jeremy Jackson, and have phone sex with him!
I feel like Waka Flocka is above this, which is not a phrase I ever anticipated typing.
I am moderately horrified that I know who a lot of those morons are. That being said, if I had a gift certificate, I would love to talk to Mama Jones from Love & Hip Hop and ask her how her perfume is selling. She's a hoot - she named it a slang word for The Vagina.
Also wouldn't mind seeing what's up with other reality whores Alex and Simon from RHONY.
OMG - stop the presses. Forget the RHONY whores, I'm saving my money to talk to Bobby Trendy, Tanning Mom and Wink Martindale.
You can Snooki's ex Emilio for $4/min. If I thought he would talk dirty to me for 5 mins. I'd probably do it and report back. Yes, I like guidos.
Do you think there are rules and guidelines about acceptable topics if you actually registered to do this?
Simon (Alex's husband from RHONY) is $10/minute. Seriously?
Alex McCord!!! Ha Ha
Oh my God! Not Thelma from Good Times!
Looks like even celebrities are having hard times right now...
One guy claim to fame is lying about having a deAD Grandmother. Wasn't randy Spears also a porn star? They didn't mention that...
The world is going to hell...
Zach from Real World San Diego is the Thor looking guy who fought with Frank.
So do you think I could call Zachary Gordon? Do you think he would wear his white socks and chucks while we talk?
can anyone tell if there's a minimum? Or can people call up for 1-2 mins just to tell someone to fuck off?
Yes, R44, Randy is a porn star.
I clicked the show list and saw American Dad on there, and he was the only one on there. I didn't recognize him so I looked up his IMDB and it says he voiced a character that was only in 2 episodes! Then there's a lot of porn movies listed.
Bobby Trendy is only $8/min.
figure the "stars" are getting 50% of the take. It's good money if people stay on the phone for 20-45 mins, but not if they call Michael and Dina Lohan to tell them they're shitty parents and then hang up.
In that clip of Wendy Williams she said for the call to Dina Lohan there is an initial $50 fee and then it's $25 a minute. So even if you talk for two minutes it'll cost you $100.
If I'm spending a C-note for a whore I'd rather it go towards the HK variety instead of one of these turds.
[quote]So do you think I could call Zachary Gordon? Do you think he would wear his white socks and chucks while we talk?
He's A list. The world will have to wait until his white socks don't look so good on him before chatting for $.
I found that site around 6 months ago ( called ``Dial a STAR``,no less) and before I klicked the link I thought that this is either a charity thing with maybe c-list but concrete celebrities or z-list nobodies who maybe had the camera on them once and now desperately want attention and money. When I clicked the link all my most cynical expectations were surpassed. I mean,WHO would want to regard Michael Lohan a STAR and what would they want to talk about with him. And just when I thought` well just Octomom is missing` sure enough there she was. This is even worse than paying to pose with a cardboard cutout. It`s officially the most pathetic thing I`ve ever seen.
About 140 'stars' listed on that site .... and I'm lucky if I know 7 of them. Stars, indeed.
[quote]So do you think I could call Zachary Gordon? Do you think he would wear his white socks and chucks while we talk?
If I could lick his legs, I'd pay.
He was also married to the little girl from The Adams Family TV series r48...
Am I supposed to have any idea who 90% of these people are?
The Voice of the Night
For that kind of money they'd better be willing to get you off.
R62 ...Jerry Butler was married to Lisa Loring, Wednesday.
Their little bios on the site are hilarious. I hope they wrote them themselves. This is my favorite:

What the hell is "a quadruple/quintuple threat"?
Couldn't find Thom Bierdz listed. Has he retired from the phone biz?
This is the best:
[quote]Bern Nadette Stanis is best known as the quick witted, sexy savvy and the original “It” girl, Thelma Evans, from the groundbreaking, first African American sitcom, “Good Times.” The still sexy 70’s star needs no redefining. Bern Nadette remains the personification of the ‘gem’ that young girls want to emulate and that we’ve all come to know and love. [bold]Undeniably, the onyx beauty is exquisitely graceful in the naturalist of forms.[/bold] A classy sophisticated and humble spirit is all embodied in this brilliant actress and author. Bern Nadette’s place in television history has been secured not solely based on her undeniable sex appeal and good looks, but instead based on her undeniable contributions to redefining the role of the young black girl from ghettos across America in the minds of the overwhelming masses prone to stereotypic beliefs. Bern Nadette through ‘Thelma’ proved to audiences everywhere that Black girls with the support of their strong families have sky-is-the limit dreams and unshakeable faith and hope! Bern Nadette (Thelma) showed that a ‘ghetto girl’ from Chicago’s inner city projects lived a life full of hopes and dreams girded by intelligence, respect, dignity and grace, and for Bern Nadette Stanis these characteristics weren’t learned in acting class. Bern Nadette is a wonderfully trained and graceful dancer as was witnessed on many of the Good Times episodes. In everything that Bern Nadette did it was marked with beauty, form and style extraordinaire. [bold]Without question as long as there is a television, there will be a Bern Nadette Stanis across our TV screens with her dramatic, comedic, witty one liners, daintiness, sexy but innocent, and daddy’s little girl charm.[/bold]
[quote]Bern Nadette Stanis is best known as the quick witted, sexy savvy and the original “It” girl, Thelma Evans,
The original "It"girl?????
Wink Martindale? I'm in!
Is that supposed to be a "unique" way of spelling Bernadette?
Wow, Bern Nadette sounds even crazier than me...
Poor Tyra Sanchez won the 2nd season of Drag Race, when the prize was still a paltry $25,000. It went up to $75,000 the year after and is up to at least $100,000 now.
Chris Crocker could have extended his fame if he did impressions of Kate Gosselin. He had a resemblance to her back in 2007-2009 at the height of her fame. I suggested the impression to him yet he never did it.
R68 wins! How impossible is that one, I ask! Someone actually wrote that!
Wake up and smell your pussy! You know you seen Laura do it.
Ashley McNeely (reality TV) has the most embarrassingly lowest price of all: $2/minute. That would be some really cheap phone sex!
Bern Nadette did a perfectly acceptable, though unexceptional, job on Good Times 40 yrs ago. She has nothing to be embarrassed about, even though the show itself was often poorly written and was embarrassing in many ways. But Good Times isn't her embarrassment, it's that she didn't realize her 15 minutes were up long ago, and used her remaining acting money to secure a good civilian job. Instead she's still pathetically milking her long forgotten blush of fame, along with the other Dial A Star losers.
R78, about your post and Good Times. You should know that Janet Jackson has signed up as part of her comeback tour.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
