Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Teresa Giudice flipping a table in the Season 1 finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is the gift that never stops giving. Now, finally, all these years later, there's an exclusive Bravo shirt commemorating the table flip and Teresa's many taglines. Inspired by classic concert merch, the "Flipping Tables Tour" tee is a must-have for any RHONJ fan. 

The Season 1 dinner is one of those Housewives scenes that transcended the Bravo universe and entered pop culture at large. Teresa herself is happy to poke fun at the moment; she even recreated the table flip it on Dancing With The Stars in 2022. As the shirt says, her Season 7 tagline was even "I used to flip tables. Now, I'm turning them."

So, let's look back at how it all got started.

In simplest terms: Teresa was expressing her frustration with cast member Danielle Staub. At the time, Teresa was challenging whether Danielle, who had been pretty open about her past prior to joining RHONJ, was being entirely honest. At a group dinner, they began discussing a book that made alleged references to Danielle's personal life. She refuted some of its claims to Teresa, which is when the conversation grew heated.

"Two things that were written about me were true," Danielle said firmly. "Name change, and got arrested. Pay attention, please."

It was the last part that seemingly resonated with her fellow cast member. "Obviously, I'm paying attention!" said Teresa, adding "[But] there must be something else." She went on, "It's just not 'name change' and 'arrested.' There has to be something else!" 

From there, Teresa began sharing her own theories for what kind of activities Danielle had been involved in, which longtime RHONJ fans can probably rattle off by heart. (Does "Engaged 19 times" ring a bell?) Eventually, Teresa lifted up the restaurant table to turn it over. To catch the full moment, check out the video, above. 

It's only about 30 seconds of television in total, but the moment will live on forever.
