Has Tina Fey been watching too much Real Housewives?

On Thursday’s 30 Rock, the NBC comedy took a break from its usual antics for a reality TV-skewering episode that mimicked the Bravo franchise with table-flipping accuracy.

Framed as an episode of a reality show, Queen of Jordan, starring Angie Jordan, wife of Tracy Morgan’s character, there was plenty of wine drinking (and tossing), electronic cigarette-smoking psychics, weepy personal histories and even a hastily recorded single.

Fey also confronted Angie (brashly played by Sherri Shepherd) with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo’s famous “thick as thieves” line, then flipped a mini-table. Watch below.
