'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.

OH NO!!!!!! WILL SHE LEAVE?
WHO cares!
I don't even watch the show but anyone who "stars" on a reality show should be thankful they have a job....as demeaning as it may be.

In the unlikely case this isn't just one more publicity story, my vote is to open the cage and set her free. Warn her to lift her arms a bit on the way out so she doesn't scrape her knuckles on the pavement. And....if she really wants more $$, maybe she should offer her services to Wes Craven or John Carpenter; it might be cool to have a (seemingly) female character instead of the routine Michael Meyers and Freddie Krugers. Hey, take a look at the pic; if that isn't frightening, I'm not sure what is.

Teresa Giudice is nothing but white trash and is an embarrassment to all REAL jersey girls and houewives. Find someone to replace her already.

With all the stuff that's going on in the world we have to be reminded that such a dumb show exist, these so called self centered selfish, shallow creepy house wives are nothing more than clowns who take up valuable air time. I hope one day reality shows are replaced with quality shows that once aired T.V. It's quality not quantity. throw these crude shows in the garbage.

Teresa brings the spice in the show. Not to mention she always dress up her girls from head to toe beautifully in front of the camera ( and herself as well )!!

I think she should get what she's asking. I read where Bravo ran up all the girls power bills and would not pay for it. Give her what she is asking.

If she goes... I go. They are all nothing but drama which is why people watch the shows. She seems to have the most of all which is why I watch.

I've never once seen the show, but the headlines grabbed my attention....if she doesn't get more cash she walks.....these are the kinds of monsters we create when we start putting no talent, no acting, nobodies on TV and calling it reality.....I'm so sick of reality shows.......I know what it's like to stand in the unemployment line; I know what it feels like to go without food......let them all go home......

All those shows suck; Bravo should put something on with credibility, who gives a **** about a bunch of old cougars and their everyday life

Look, I worked in television for over 20 years....leave if they do not give you "reasonable" pay, however and watch your CHILDREN!. Television is all about ratings...not $. Get real and leave if it is all about the money because to TV, it is all abou the RATINGS!

Hell with all the NJ women in that state - You find these?
Kick her to curb - plenty more women in that state - than what you got - if anything - Grab a whole new crew bring the "fresh" in. You should be switching all of them. Your losing the flavor already. Hell you got robbed if you paid anything for them to begin with.

Buh-bye! The whole reality tv phase needs to be over. Housewives are all lying backbiting bitches who need to save the drama for their momma's. Jersey Shore teaches nothing but how 'cool' it is to drink, score and drink/score somemore. They do NOTHING productive except promote std's or promiscutity.
