'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.

It's utterly amazing that these low-life greaseballs are even on TV, Jersey Shore morons as well. It's a sad day in society that these s***bags are on TV and getting paid for it. Believe me, not everyone from NJ is an uneducated, slang talking, fist pumping, fat assed ugly greaseball.

Let her walk and let's see how long it takes Teresa to crawl back begging for her old job back. Teresa is a self-serving over the top loud mouth cow.Danielle was the ulitimate cow,but Teresa enjoys stirring the pot and thrives on drama. If all her money troubles are true and I do believe them the way ths cow spends money, she'll be back; plus Teresa loves being in the limelight. What will Teresa bitch about now with Danielle gone. Caroline is the only one with an ounce of dignity and Jacqueline second. The other diva's are sickening and this goes all the phoney housewifes.

Never seen the show, but after seeing these pictures, I think with all that makeup and pretty clothes she's a pretty good looking dude. I mean really, there is a little something up here. Doesn't look quite right.

In my opinion get rid of all the Jersey housewives & double up the time on NY (Except for Kelly). They are much more entertaining.

Theresa is a loud-mouthed moron!! I used to like her and the other women in this housewives show........not anymore. They're all rude, obnoxious women who love to sit around and gossip about other women around them. Dina was smart to leave, & now Danielle is leaving..good for her. She's no better than the other women, but at least she knows when to get out! I think all the housewives shows are stupid, and these women are just making asses of themselves. I bet their husbands are embarassed when they watch the shows, or when other people comment to him about his wife. LOSERS!! All of them!

I am not a fan of Theresa! I believe she is the trouble maker on the program! She is very trashy! Please remove all these boring women on the New Jersey program and bring back Daniell with a new cast!!! Daniell was the only reason I watched the program becaused all the others were sooooooooooo very boring!!!!! Just a bunch of boring housewives who sat around drinking tea or wine ~ OH HOW I HATED THE NEW JERSEY HOUSEWIVES! I will never watch that program again unless they remove the current cast!

This is what's wrong with reality shows. Give these nobody's 15 minutes of fame and they suddenly think they're super stars! Let her find something else to do and she won't be demanding anything.
