Two months after leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dina Manzo returns to the show Monday -- and has your first peek.

Manzo, 39 -- who first told Us Weekly that she quit the Bravo show because of castmate Danielle Staub -- steps back in front of the camera to attend the christening of pal Teresa Giudice's daughter, 10-month-old Audriana (Manzo is the girl's godmother).

"The role as Audriana's godmother is to guide her religiously and spiritually," says Manzo (see clip, above). "For me to do that is so special."

Manzo comes bearing gifts -- including a pair of pricey Gucci shoes for the baby.

Luckily, Staub, 48, nowhere in sight.

The full episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Monday at 10 p.m./ET on Bravo.
