'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.

BRAVO give her the freaking money already will ya!!! Lets move on here...she did make the episodes more interesting to watch and you know it! She may be a loud mouth, short tempered, combative and annoying but hey, that just gives us more to talk about...Hell, I hear quotes from Teresa used in the show everywhere I go..."Happy Wife, Happy Life"..."Boobies"...etc.

Teresa needs to just lift up the skirt and see that she's not really worth much more than what she's getting now

Theresa has to be the most annoying Housewife of all the shows. She is such a stage mom and is just looking for someone else to foot her outragious spending habits. She needs to go! She has abused the system to excape her debt, just to spend more. There are people losing their jobs, families are being torn apart and businesses are struggling accross the country. Most of those people can not file for bankruptsy to have a clean slate of debt. Bravo needs to grow some balls and put someone decent on the show.

let her leave. she should get a real job and learn how to control her spending and her awful mouth. she should also make her children mind. when showed them in a restaurant those children were out of control and ruining everyone else's dinner. who does she think she is. just because she had a tantrum and turned a table over does that make her special or just ignorant. i think she is a spoiled loudmouth and needs to learn some manners and find some common sense.

Teresa, you're NOT "too pretty to work." If you need money, get a real job. Money cannot buy class, which is painfully obvious in this case. She's not funny, just dumb. I'm tired of watching all of the other NJ housewives (minus Danielle), kissing her B*** and acting like she's just so funny, so pretty and her kids are just too cute. PLEASE - if that's what they really think, then they need to get out more.

Theresa is a skank and Bravo should cut ties with such a witch. Plus her kids are talentless. Everyone is better off without Theresa. Yeah baby.

Let Teresa go !! Give her ONE OUTFIT to wear and $20...drop her off on SKID ROW in Los Angeles for 3 days...let's see how she can handle going 'WITHOUT'...like many people are forced to do. This chick is spoiled, selfsh, self-centered...and she has the nerve to call DANIELLE a "LOW LIFE"...OMG, she DEFINES the word. DANIELLE was the only REAL gal on the show !! They all ganged up on Danielle...like they're BETTER....NOT !! They need to take a REAL LOOK AT THEMSELVES ! Let lound-mouthed Teresa go...let her WORK for a lving. I'm rooting for Danielle !!

This whole reality housewives thing is crap and shame on the network for dumbing down to its viewers. They should feel ashamed of their selves.
