'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.

What happen to the concept of Reality TV? I really hate it when you see a person from one show, one that has flopped, on another show, now they are just actors and its a lot like College sports. These women on this show always make reference as though they are connected with the mob???? They are just trash and can be replaced no problem. The shows were supposed to give us an insight how others live and work and the show was not suppose to be the reason for them to be on air. Bring back the actors, which I personelly would hate to see or keep it real as it implies.

Who Cares    

Who gives a rats a$$. All of a sudden these low lifes are celebreties? I say cancel all these stupid damn reality shows and put something entertaining on tv. FYI Teresa, the reason these networks started reality tv was to eliminate the big salaries of regular TV celebreties. Don't hold your breath.

I am a fan of all The Housewives Shows. If Teresa does not come back I will still watch it. I am pretty sure they could find some other drama. I will miss Danielle though. Too bad she is not coming back.

I can't stand that b**** (Theresa) & her bad ass kids. I'd put the smack down on my daughter if she ever thought of behaving the way her kids do (all thanks to her of course). Not to mention she looks like a trany! Take a hike Theresa!

Teresa is an ex-whore from the Jersey Shore.........If you listen carefully, her grammar is horrible; her knowledge of the english language needs to be retaught to her! ..... I stopped watching the show cause of her - she is a bully, and starts most of the fights on the show.....get rid of the turd! God help us, she has how many daughters that are gonna turn into her when they get older!
