'New Jersey Housewife'

Double My Pay

or I'll Quit!

9/1/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice is "ready to walk away" from the show unless producers cough up "Jersey Shore money" ... and fast!!!

Sources connected to the show tell us "several of the women are no longer satisfied with their deals" and will not show up to begin shooting Season 3 on September 3rd -- unless they get new contracts worth significantly more moolah. 

We're told Teresa -- who's financial issues have been a major plot point on the show -- is the most adamant about the contract situation ... asking for a cut of the DVD and merchandise sales ... freedom to make more paid appearances ... and her salary DOUBLED.

A source extremely close to Teresa tells us, “She would like to be paid more equivalent to what the 'Jersey Shore' kids are getting" .... adding, "If she’s not treated better by Bravo, she’s ready to walk away.”

FYI -- the "Jersey Shore" kids are reportedly pulling in around $30k per episode.

A rep for Bravo tells us they don't comment on contract negotiations.

Can everyone making the vulgar comments please explain to me how this woman is a Prostitute, Skank, Slut, etc...????????? Or that's just the "thing" to say when you've got nothing more intelligent or constructive to say about a person? That's very noteworthy, let me tell you.

And all the people hating on her kids... really? grow the F up. They are like 10 and younger.. do you feel better about yourselves or your kids saying that? WOW. Maybe you all should be on the next season of ghetto housewives.

Oh please do not give them a raise!!! Without Danielle there is no show. But, why do I have a feeling that the other ladies will turn on Teresa. If that does happen I will be sure to watch next season.

If Danielle is not on next year I will not be watching! If they pay Teresa what she is asking it is just stupidity on Bravos part.

SHE JUST WANTED SOMEONE TO HOLD HER BACK BECAUSE SHE WAS TO SCARED TO FIGHT BECAUSE SHE IS JUST TRASH. POOR ITALIAN TRASH.

Theresa is disgusting. Watching that reunion show literally made me sick. Even if Danielle does have some issues, there is no need to constantly call her a pig and tear her down. Theresa is the pig. That whole Manzo family is sick. They gross me out so bad that I will probably never watch that show again. Paying Theresa a dime more is a HUGE mistake. -- get rid of her.

Save us all and pull the plug on these old girls....they look like the wives from the movie Goodfella's.....someone should tell her that Bozo called and he wants his makeup back.

I agree with #6 post, she used to appear to be a nice person but all these women are BULLIES< i bet looking back they probably wish they didnt bully danielle to bring out her inner psyco, they played with fire and got burned! i am not interested in watching any of these dried up old hags, teresa should not put on a big frnt the whole season like she got all this money and they deny filing bankruptcy, LIAR! i dont want to watch some phony bitches put on a front of how "rich" they are, its a crock of lies and im not a believer.
