Compared with her castmates on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dina Manzo was all calm and class. Now she displays those qualities on her own event-planning show. In the premiere, Manzo and her bright team whip up a prom-theme party for a Jersey couple, and the results are both doable and goofy fun (guests get balloon corsages!). The star's wry humor livens things up, too. Recalling her own lousy prom, she admits, "I actually smacked the guy I was with!" (HGTV, 10 p.m.)
