Apparently it pays to have a hissy-fit and quit your job in dramatic and well-publicized fashion.

Stone Entertainment is said to be interested in hiring former Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater to host a show in which various disgruntled workers quit their jobs in extravagant ways, according to TMZ.com.

Police are investigating just what happened last Monday, when Slater flipped out aboard a Jet Blue plane at Kennedy Airport in New York. The 20-year airline veteran allegedly used the plane's intercom to chew out a passenger and announce he was quitting, grabbed two beers and made his grand escape down the emergency slide.

Investigators are increasingly skeptical about Slater's story about a rude passenger hitting his head with the overhead luggage compartment door, however. And if Slater's story doesn't add up, he can likely kiss that reality show goodbye.
