EXCLUSIVE: Former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Dina Manzo is returning to the docu-reality genre with a new series project chronicling her life. Manzo has signed a development deal with Al Roker‘s Al Roker Entertainment for the project, which “will document Dina’s new chapter.” Manzo recently announced her split from Tommy Manzo, her husband of seven years. The couple’s lavish 2005 wedding was documented on VH1′s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding. “This collaboration will be an opportunity for Dina’s fans to go behind the scenes into her world — which is different than most people would expect,” Roker said. Added Manzo, “I think viewers will be surprised at the type of show this will be.”

Manzo appeared on Bravo’s hit Real Housewives Of New Jersey for the first season and a half. She currently toplines HGTV’s Dina’s Party. Al Roker Entertainment’s series credits include The Weather Channel’s Coast Guard Alaska and episodes of HGTV’s Celebrity Holiday Homes.
