Dina Manzo—you remember her, right? She’s the Catholic-Buddhist ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star who left the show in June to rid herself of all things evil (cough cough, Danielle Staub). Well, hold onto your rosaries because she’s back this Monday for the christening of Teresa Giudice’s baby girl Audriana, to whom she’s godmother.

“The role as Audriana’s godmother is to guide her religiously and spiritually,” says Manzo in a clip provided by Us Mag. “For me to do that is so special.”

And what better way to express her spiritual guidance to the 10-month-old than to offer her a pair of Gucci shoes? (Note: Teresa’s reaction is pure joy, while it looks like hubby Joe is downing an aspirin for dear life.)

What do you think of Dina’s transitory return? Would you rather have her ‘nama-stay’?

‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ airs on Mondays at 10pm/ET on Bravo.
