No tables were flipped.

But Teresa Giudice flipped out -- within the first 10 minutes of Monday's explosive The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.

When villain Danielle Staub claimed the Guidice failed to acknowledge the birth of her nephew, Guidice leaped out of her seat, got two inches from Staub's face and screamed, "Do not bring up my family!" before hurling other expletives (see clip, above).

Staub stormed off set and Guidice tried to go after her, even shoving host Andy Cohen.

Guidice made no apologies for her behavior in an interview with last week.

"I didn't mean to shove Andy," she told Us. "When I'm attacked, I attack back. I don't like to be held back or touched ... Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don't hold me back!"
