'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.

Are you kidding?!.... Let her leave!! She is so totally out of control. All it does is reinforce her very bad behavior. What kind of example is she setting for her children? Is her mother proud of her? I can't stand watching her anymore. If she comes back, I'm not watching anymore.

you're kidding me!? 30k per episode?!?!? I've been a Jersey Girl my whole life... I never watched an episode of Jersey Shore or Housewives but always hear how it is nothing like how we really are in Jersey. I'm always at the shore and I'm married with kids... I would gladly get $100 per episode!! Let me take her place and have people see what real Jersey girls are like!!!

What would be really great is if this non-person forced the cancellation of the show. That this one cancellation led to the cancellation of all reality television shows.

Mr. SoBe    

Come on everyone let us all get "real." I quit watching reality shows years ago and can only hope and pray that all of you current watchers wake up and see what these shows really are. Pitifully contrived, poorly written and acted (and getting worse) by the so called "reality" stars. The only "talent" that is consistent is who can outdo being rude, crude, and vile. And we watch this and want to make stars out of such behavior? Why? There shows are all staged to look like reality but they are all far from it. So what we get in the name of reality is amateur wanna be stars/actors being overly paid because we the gullible public believe we are looking at something real and genuine. Come on, can't we put our television time to better use than these ridiculous shows and move on to something slightly more uplifting. I certainly hope so.

Does Bravo really benefit from keeping such unethical people on their shows? They don't represent the best of America...mostly the worst, and people like me who enjoy some Bravo shows have stopped watching these unstable women altogether. I'm tired of such poor behavior being rewarded with big salaries and quasi-celebrity status.
