Before Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Serious Debt
Before appearing on the Real Housewives show, Joe specialized in buying buildings and renovating them into apartments or condos for profit.
Joe even had a partnership in the restaurant, Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza. It turns out the Italian joint, which opened in May of 2017, was closed off in January 2018. The New Jersey eatery was put to an end, and Joe was furious about his partners scamming him.
Well, it seemed like Joe was having a financial crisis. But was he?
Earlier, in October 2017, the couple had listed their lavish mansion in Montville, New Jersey, for $3.5 million. Plus, the duo was also in debt of $1.5 million; the deficit had decreased their net worth.

Although it remains unknown if they were able to pay off the loan later, they took off their home from the market the same year. However, certainty remained that the issue of their debt hadn't been resolved as they listed the same property for sale yet again.
But this time, the pair's asking price for the property was less than the previous year as for the second time, they were selling it for $3.29 million. Furthermore, things got more confusing as they again changed their minds about selling it in February of that year.
Interestingly, it became probable he wasn't doing well financially as their home was back on sale again with buyers on the advantage. Interestingly, the asking price was $2.948 million this time. Yes, $342,000 less than the previous value.
But despite this, their 9,100-square-foot home couldn't find any buyer at all. However, it became evident eventually that they were able to pay their previous debt as they purchased another house on Jersey Shore for $1 million.
Brother-In-Law In Legal Trouble
Well, Joe Gorga's brother-in-law, Joe Giudice, witnessed his name surrounded by cheating rumors on the show. Not only cheating rumors but also he was sentenced to jail.
Back in August 2016, Giudice was accused of cheating on his wife while she was serving her jail sentence. Later, his wife confronted him regarding the matter after her release from jail.
