Al Roker is getting the Garden-State gal back to open up again.

Dina Manzo was always a fan favorite during her time on RHONJ. However, she left fans craving more when she abruptly departed our Bravo family after cutting out Danielle Staub and wishing her "love and light."

While we've been briefly graced with her presence during guest appearances on RHONJ and WWHL, it turns out Dina fans will once again be getting her specific dose of reality. Coming just after the news of her marital split, Al Roker Entertainment has announced a reality television project that will document Dina's new chapter in her life. Hallelujah!

"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," says Roker.

Dina adds, "I think viewers will be surprised at the type of show this will be." Leave it to Al Roker to surprise us -- he's getting to be known for that sort of thing. . .

Though she hasn't been an official Housewife since 2010, Dina has been present on the boob tube. From hosting her own show, Dina's Party, on HGTV, to dipping her toes in scripted television waters with Tainted Dreams, it's almost like she never left us at all.
