‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season Finale Flip Out

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" first season ended with more than just a "bada bing" – thanks to a total meltdown by cast member Teresa Giudice after Danielle Staub confronted her fellow Franklin Lakes socialites about "the book" she says ruined her image around the posh suburban enclave.

The tension between the cast members had been heating up for weeks leading up to the Bravo series' finale after the book, "Cop Without a Badge," surfaced claiming that a woman identified as Danielle was arrested for kidnapping and prostitution 25 years ago – all claims she has adamantly denied.

The episode concluded with a dinner party planned by Teresa, who was eagerly showing off her new "bubbies" – as the "Housewives" refer to them – after going under the knife in the previous episode. Teresa invited the entire cast, including Danielle, who sisters Dina and Caroline Manzo rarely got along with. Stuck in the middle was Jacqueline Laurita (sister-in-law to Dina and Caroline and friends with Danielle).

During the middle of dinner, Danielle unearthed the book (which all the "Housewives" had been talking about for weeks) from her purse and placed it in the middle of the table. She then confronted her cast members, telling Dina, who she believed to be behind the book's sudden appearance around town, "I had three weeks of diarrhea and vomiting because of you."

Caroline jumped to her sister's defense trying to take blame for the book, yelling, "Let me tell you something about my family. We are as thick as thieves and we protect each other until the end!"

But it was Jacqueline, sister-in-law to Dina and Caroline, who revealed the truth behind the book, announcing to the group that it was, in fact, Dina who started all the drama by finding the book in the first place.

"What's right is right and what's true is true," she said, standing up to her family.

But the show's best moment came with just minutes before the end of the show, when Teresa, who was hosting the party, flipped out on Danielle and flipped the dinner table over, screaming, "Wh*re!" It took multiple people, including her husband, Joe, to restrain her before she calmed down.

Fans will get another dose of the Jersey ladies next week when Bravo airs "The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion" on Tuesday June 23 at PM EST.
