Danielle Staub is not going to be happy about this!

Dina Manzo–a former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star– is getting her own reality show! The interior decorator and event planner stepped out of the reality TV spotlight in 2010, midway through season 2, to avoid even more conflict with Danielle Staub, 48.

In a new series for HGTV, Manzo, 39, and the staff of her event company Design Affairs will create lavish events in their clients’ homes. The weekly party-planning series will premiere in September.

Bravo Cancels “The Real Housewives of D.C.”

The network’s general manager Kathleen Finch said in a statement: “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.”

But Manzo might not be done with the Housewives franchise just yet. She wrote on her Twitter page Friday: “Yes even tho I’m part of the HGTV family now u will still see me on @BravoTV here & there! Sooner than you think ; )”
