The drama started when Joe posted an image to his Instagram that reportedly depicted a home he had flipped. Unfortunately for the RHONJ mainstay, the actual owner of the property disputed the story, revealing that she never hired him and that the home was built from the “ground up” and not renovated, as Joe had been claiming.
The story was covered this morning on Good Morning America this morning and the property owner even sat for an interview, explaining that she reached out to Joe after he posted an image of her home on Instagram but that he has yet to respond.
This isn’t the first time that Joe’s business ethics have been called into question. Along with his wife Melissa Gorga, the two have been at the center of the drama since they joined RHONJ, so hearing about this house flipping controversy will be nothing new to fans.
In addition to Melissa’s boutique Envy and his construction company, the couple has also been shown opening a trash management company and Italian restaurant, among other business ventures.
The co-owner of Melissa’s store ended up suing her over their arrangement, and there has been no shortage of interesting rumors about the construction business over the years. His failure to properly address the issue will only add fuel to the fire, so it would have been smart of him to address this prior to it making it to national television this morning.
