Last week, “Dina’s Party” tried to draw in Dina Manzo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” fans by showing a little drama among her employees. This week, it tried to draw in HGTV fans by making it a bit of a contest.Manzo is called in to plan a clothing swap party for two sisters, Lissa Jean Ferrell and Claudia Jean. Jean is visiting Ferrell and wants to co-host the party, but she is only in town for a week. As if the time budget were not enough, Manzo inexplicably sets herself a budget of only $1,000. She also decides rather than just transform Ferrell’s family room into a stylish boutique for the party, she is going to redecorate the drab room permanently. It is unclear if the clients know about the budget or the plan, but that does not seem to bother Manzo.Manzo’s crew seems huge and is difficult to keep track of, especially because their names and titles appear somewhat randomly on screen. It often takes an entire episode before the audience is clued in as to who the people they have been watching for the half-hour are. Thus, the weekly business meetings that take place in Manzo’s house before the transformation are confusing and somewhat boring. Manzo assigns tasks and then the audience watches those tasks be executed, almost always perfectly.One was not this week, however. Manzo asks carpenter Joe Varcardipane to build her a new storage space as a place for the clothing to go for the party and Ferrell’s children’s toys to go afterwards. Manzo is disappointed in the piece because it is too small and “too kitchen, too garage” for her.“You got the eye!” design assistant Danielle Ambrosio said looking at her boss. “Please take a look at this eye, because this only comes out—it’s devilish.”Somehow, they work it out, adding a shelf and some opaque baskets.Manzo also becomes concerned because Jean informs her that Ferrell is “somewhat of a hoarder” and does not want to give up any of her clothing and accessories for the party. In a move that one assumes party planners cannot do unless they have their own television shows, Manzo hires Phillip Bloch, a celebrity stylist, to help Ferrell clean out her closets. Together, Manzo, Bloch, Ferrell, and Jean sort Ferrell’s closet into piles to keep, give to charity, or donate to the party. One purse in particular Ferrell does not want part with because it was given to her by a deceased uncle. Manzo promises to do something special with it. Later, it is revealed that she has transformed it into a photo album.Despite being somewhat unorthodox, Manzo’s special extras touch Ferrell and Jean.“This has gone from just being a swap party where we’re having some fun to someone coming in and cleaning and decluttering my closet, which will clean and declutter my spirit,” Ferrell says.And of course, the party is gorgeous. Using frames, vintage purses, and one very bright green wall, Manzo and her team transforms a previously very monotone room into a beautiful place for women to exchange clothes—and families to make memories. The sisters are blown away and the party is a success.Hopefully, “Dina’s Party” will be, too. It just needs to find its voice.The show airs Saturdays at 10 on HGTV.
