Show: The Real Housewives of New Jersey (2009)

Teresa Giudice kind of scares us sometimes, so you know that means she always makes for great entertainment on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Back when the show was just starting out, this unforgettable “table-flipping” scene reeled in just the right amount of publicity to attract droves to watch week after week, which is ultimately the goal in televising scenes like this. So, in that sense, job well done.

It's become one of the most recognizable clips of not only the series, but the whole Real Housewives franchise itself, immortalizing her as, well, that chick who flipped a table over. She’s managed to sufficiently impress and intimidate us at the same time! Normally she seems like a pretty nice gal, though, just so long as you remember…her house isn’t in foreclosure.
