    The sentence in your link, "When she heard about the gossip, she flipped the flop out!", sounds odd to me, but I would have understood it as "When she heard about the gossip, she flipped." I don't see that the "the flop out" adds much. I had not heard "to flip the flop out" before - but that's not surprising, because it's slang, and slang varies a lot from place to place.
