Most reality shows depend on drama to keep their ratings up. Sometimes, this drama takes the form of petty arguments, with obvious tension simmering beneath the surface. This tension rarely continues for long, however; eventually, one or more of the cast members are bound to blow their tops. The following are just a few of the many reality television fights that have completely shocked and appalled viewers:
1) Teresa Giudice’s Table Flip
During the first season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, it was obvious that Teresa Giudice was a force to be reckoned with. Her first several episodes on the show were marked by a huge sense of tension, with the inevitable blow-up occurring during the season one finale. When Danielle Staub decided to get down and dirty at a dinner party, Teresa was only too happy to participate.
She accused Danielle of being a “prostitution who*e” before proceeding to topple the table. Talk about an overreaction!
Some fans of the Bravo series have begun to wonder just how realistic Teresa’s table flipping really was. Could the reality star be exaggerating her typical angry responses for the sake of televised drama?
Real Housewives Of New Jersey co-star Dina Manzo seemed to suggest as much in 2013, when she claimed that the table flipping version of Teresa was absolutely nothing like the Teresa she’d come to know over the years.
