Us Magazine reports that former Real Housewives Of New Jersey‘s Dina Manzo landed her own reality series on HGTV. Manzo and her employees at Design Affairs will “create lavish events in their clients’ houses” (Danielle Staub must be sh___ing herself). Dina bowed out in the middle of RHONJ‘s second season because she couldn’t handle Staub’s antics. Don’t worry, Housewives fans. Dina, spotted with Alex McCord at the 8th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares in New York last month, indicated on her Twitter page today that she’s not entirely done with Cohen & Company: “Yes even tho I’m part of the HGTV family now u will still see me on @BravoTV here & there! Sooner than you think ; ).”
In season one of RHONJ, Dina quit her job as a wedding planner, but it seems she’s since rejoined the workforce. HGTV’s general manager released the following statement about their Jersey edition: “Dina is an accomplished interior designer and also runs a thriving event planning business–her Real Housewives fans will be surprised to see this side of her.”
The series is set to premiere in September and hopefully will be just like Manzo’s appearance on VH1′s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding.
