Manzo featured in party-planning skein

HGTV has greenlit a new series featuring “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Dina Manzo.

The untitled series will focus on Manzo’s special events company Design Affairs, with each episode focusing on a different party-planning endeavor.

“Dina is an accomplished interior designer and also runs a thriving event planning business,” HGTV general manager Kathleen Finch said. “Her ‘Real Housewives’ fans will be very surprised to see this side of her. Dina brings a unique set of skills to HGTV.”

Manzo left “Real Housewives” last year, midway through its second season.
