'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.

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 could care less about Teresa..I am a big Housewives fan. Of all the shows Teresa is the most ignorant, self centered, egotistical, maniacal one of them all. She pushed Danielle's buttons because she is a bully. She would never go after NeNe in ATL or even Kim for that matter. I think they can find another rich NJ diva to replace her..If not, I have a few suggestions.. Good bye and Good riddance.

Why does she need more money so she can go out and piss it all away on things that she doesn't need? You don't need her on the show! She is just trouble and very tough to look at anyway! I'd be VERY HAPPY to see her go!

What make's her think that she needs to be paid more than the other women on the show. Time is money and the show porducer's need to get rid of her if she's holding up production of the next season shows. There's always someone else who could take her place. Maybe the show will be better to watch!

Buh-bye, Teresa!!!! BTW, "Jersey Shore" is not a Bravo production. I believe it is an MTV production and MTV has deep pockets. Apples and oranges, dear.

Who cares? She's nothing but a shrill, over made up, loud-mouthed, full of herself biotch. Her financial problems are on HER, and Bravo should not have to foot the bill...!

I hope they all quit. Shows like this just reflect the incredible low society has hit. They should shove all these types of shows to their own network and call it the Moron TV Channel.

If in fact the Jersey kids are getting 30K per episode too much, but at least it is alot more entertaining and you have to laugh at the stupidity they say and do because of there age (except The Situation. He's turned into a real a**hole!) Teresa and her brats are not the show. Bravo don't give in to this self-centered, overbearing, money hungry classless biatch. Stick to your guns or find someone else! She is definitely not the show!!!! Danielle was more entertaining than her. Big deal more shopping sprees with her brats? Danielle is gone so who is she going to flip the table on now?

Bye Bye! I can't stand that stuck up, white trash, low life, s*** who doesn't pay her bills. How about paying all the people you left high and dry, then demand more money. There are thousands of women out there who are funny, kind, sincere, who would love that show. Without Danielle and her drama it is going to suck anyone. How are bring someone like dina back. Theresa you are a selfish, loud mouth, idiot...goodbye!
