Dina ManzoChances are you know Dina Manzo from her time on Bravo's 'Real Housewives of New Jersey.' It's hard to forget her feud with Danielle Staub, the resulting drama -- table flips, gag orders and so much more -- and Manzo's famous exit from the reality series, which was attributed to Staub's antics.

However, it's been more than a year since Manzo said goodbye to 'Housewives' and reality TV as a whole, but when HGTV came a-callin', Manzo said she couldn't refuse their call.

"When I left 'Housewives' I had no intentions of coming back on TV at all," Manzo told AOL TV. "This opportunity came to me and I spoke with my husband and I said, 'You know, not for nothing, I love HGTV. This is what I love to do and you know how happy event planning makes me.'"

With her husband's blessing and the assurance her family and foundation wouldn't be affected by the series, Manzo said it was an easy decision. "I said 'Why not?' I love what I do, I love my team."
