Producers of the Real Housewives of New Jersey have told convicted felon, Teresa Giudice, they expect her to earn her million-dollar salary with hot-headed tantrums, has learned -- or risk getting fired!

Last season, "There was a lot of anger and disappointment towards Teresa because there was this sense that she held back," an insider explained. "It was extremely frustrating for the show because Teresa wasn't bringing the drama that the fans had expected."

So now, the source said, "Producers told her in no uncertain terms that they want more table flipping, and less of the quiet PTA mom they saw last season. If producers feel Teresa is holding back from the drama, she will be fired immediately, and won't be paid her $1 million salary."

One potential source of ratings gold? Producers are "eager to film Teresa and Joe together before he goes off to prison," the source said. "It's expected that Joe won't surrender immediately after Teresa gets out, and producers will want Teresa to ask him about allegations he cheated on her behind bars."

"Teresa has never wanted to say anything negative about Joe in the past, including the ongoing infidelity claims. But it's now very different circumstances because Teresa needs that Bravo check to pay off the remaining restitution she owes in the bankruptcy fraud case," the insider added.

Meanwhile, that seven-figure salary has made Teresa's co-stars extremely angry, and the first ladies of New Jersey are demanding a pay raise.

"Teresa's sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, is demanding a significant raise, and wants to be paid $1 million too. Dina Manzo is also seeking a bump in pay," a source previously told Radar. And another source added, "Jacqueline wanted to be paid as much as Teresa too."
