Bravo Flips Over 'Housewives' Table-Tossing Contest

9/23/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A "Real Housewives of New Jersey"-inspired table-flipping contest -- hosted by table-flipping queen Teresa Giudice -- just got tossed ... after Bravo put the kibosh on the event.

The owner of The Funkey Monkey in Delaware tells TMZ ... just as they green lit the table-flipping contest for Teresa's appearance Saturday, Bravo caught wind of it and shut it down.

A rep for Bravo tells us the network has a hands-off policy regarding personal appearances -- but according to inside sources Teresa was told the contest might be a dumb PR move ... so she'd be better off not flaunting her famous Season 1 move (see video).

Boys?? Men??

I'm going to let you in on a secret that is kept from all of the male species.

Do you see the way that THING behaves??

THAT IS WHAT YOUR WIFE OR GIRLFRIEND WILL BEHAVE LIKE IN HER MENOPAUSE YEARS.

AND NOTHING. I MEAN NOTHING WILL STOP THEM FROM ACTING JUST LIKE THAT.

Thank you.

My work is done here.

Carry on.

Teresa has to be the breadwinner now that Juicy Joe is in jail!

If anyone has a table-flipping monkey, this would be the contest to enter!

Why would it be a dumb PR move? Does Bravo actually think Housewives is a respectable, family show?

Magilla Gorilla's husband is in jail, shouldn't she be at home with those horrible little rodents they call children, figuring out what hideous outfit she is going to force them into next? Well, they'll get a break with both parents are sentenced for lying to the court. Magilla Gorilla in prison stripes coming next......
