'Housewives' Table-Flipper -- Under the Gun

10/19/2010 10:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Teresa Giudice is on the verge of losing her spot on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" -- TMZ has learned the reality star's money demands are holding up contract negotiations ... and Bravo is losing patience.

1019_teresa_giudice_welcome_EX
Sources close to Giudice tell TMZ, the table-flipping housewife feels like Bravo's giving her the short end of the stick ... because she's under the impression that the other women in the cast are earning significantly more money than she is. As we previously reported, Teresa wants double her salary from last season.

We're told Teresa -- who's famously dealt with money issues in the past -- is ready to walk if Bravo doesn't cough up the cash. Bravo insiders wouldn't comment on the current state of negotiations, but did say the network is looking at possible replacements.

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.

As for the other girls -- we're told they're all a safe bet for next season ... minus Danielle, of course.

I am a single mother of one young child and I only have one income, which is only $21,000/year, Living in California! My credit is a real mess (due to being very irresponsible), but now I am making an effort to clean it up and make my life better. I have purchased almost EVERY program and have gone to just about every "free seminar" on making money online. Not only did these programs not work for me, I spent money that I truly did not have. I used all of my savings to get all these courses and found them to be extremely difficult to use and were not speaking my language. I wanted the make a better life for my child and me. Also, to leave him something when I'm gone. I was very excited to discovered this website: ( Http://tinyurl.com/HomeBusinessStart ) I wish I had known about this site five years ago I know it would have saved me a lot of capital.

Teresa should get paid like the Jersey Shore cast. Why the heck not?!? Teresa makes the Jersey show just like Nene Leake's makes the Atlanta show- without these ladies, the shows are not worth watching ( the drama will be gone and the main characters will deflate the whole idea of making these shows fun to watch, chaotic as it sounds, they do make the show FUN TO WATCH and make for good critique). Either pay them what they ask for and with perks OR BRAVO stands to loose MANY, MANY DEVOTED WATCHERS.

Teresa Giudice is white trash. She should be happy to have a job. The women on this show are loud-mouthed broads with no morals. They treated Danielle badly.

she sounds like a spoiled little girl. she should be thankful that she is getting paid. there are ppl struggling in their lives and she is demanding more money. Teresa I used to like you, and I am trying to keep an open mind here about you. Try selling some of your high priced items in your home. that should yield you some monies to make up the difference in the episodes. You need to be brought down a peg or two. It is such a humbling experience when you come down to earth.

Teresa should stay and be paid a good chunk for it. She makes the show and I enjoy watching her dramas. I love the show and live in Florida, formally from new jersey. Thanks Teresa for the good show.

I cannot stand this show because of Teresa. Teresa is rude, self-centered, narcissistic and just plain mean. She ought to be glad I'm not Danielle because more than that table would have been flipped.
