    Porn Pushing? Deejaying? Amanda Knox Fielding All Kinds of Kooky Job Offers

    Amanda Knox has just been freed from what must have been the most harrowing and traumatic few years of her life.

    And it only took corporate America four days to try to capitalize off her pain, helping her through this time with selfless offers of employment that seem better fit for reality rejects than, well, anyone. Particularly someone searching for some normalcy.

    But hey, her pain is their gain, so forget the lucrative interviews and million-dollar potential book deals—what recovering former murder defendant wouldn't jump at the chance of being the face of X-rated America?

    Because that—and we're not sure if we should be surprised by this or not—is the first job offer that was publicly floated to the Seattle native who won her appeal on murder charges in Italy this week.

    Vivid Entertainment's head perv Steve Hirsch extended the offer to the 24-year-old Thursday, announcing that he wanted Knox as the new face of his adult-film empire. Though, in fairness, her face is the only body part he's after at the moment.

    "Amanda Knox has been through a nightmare and has come through it with grace and dignity," Hirsch told E! News. "She's a beautiful young woman and we've already heard from fans wanting to know if we're going to offer her a movie deal. I am sure she needs to recover from her experience of the last four years and determine the direction she wants to take for her future.

    "We would like to offer her the opportunity to be our Vivid.com spokesperson and represent the studio at trade and retail events. This would involve no nudity or sex. Of course, we would welcome talking to her if she wants to pursue this direction, but the decision is totally hers to express."

    Needless to say, Knox has yet to get back to Hirsch on his offer. And he shouldn't hold his breath.

    A slightly more realistic (but just barely) job opportunity has been presented to Knox, one which has the added benefit of being local (never underestimate the allure of a short commute).

    Seattle's MOViN 92.5 FM has made Knox an offer they hope she won't refuse, namely to join their morning zoo team for one week on air as a guest DJ.

    "We believed in Amanda Knox all along and have been closely following the case," KQMV program director (and lunchtime DJ) Maynard said (and yes, it's just the one name for him).

    "We are extremely happy for Amanda and her family, and we not only welcome her back home to Seattle, but we also wanted to help her family with legal bills, so we are offering her a job to be on the morning show with Brooke & Jubal for $10,000."

    Of course, $10,000 isn't quite as tempting when you consider that it wouldn't even be a drop in the bucket of the astronomical legal fees the Knox family has racked up. And worth even less when you consider the price tag on the peace of mind she'd get from not accepting these novelty, vulnerability-preying gigs: priceless.
