Thank you very much for that. Now to our "Gma" cover story that fake house flipping scandal that has "The real housewives of New Jersey" cast member under fire and Amy is back with the story. That's right. Joe gorga finding himself in the hot seat this morning for what some say are not so real claims that he posted on social media. Going to say gorga's. I told you one day I put my name in lights. Reporter: The boisterous brother of these gentleman Guidice on "The real housewives of New Jersey." Joe gorga finding himself in a new fight being accused of faking a before and after photo for his real estate business on he frequently shares photos of projects with his followers on Instagram. Even promoting a real estate in a now deleted post, gorga posting this before and after photo of a house he says he flipped writing, look at this flip worth 1.9 million. Took me six months to turn this ripped off the roof and added to the second floor. I think I might move in. The only problem, cali Swensson says the after photo is her house and was never renovated by It was a new construction. The foundation was new. Everything about it was new built from the ground up. Reporter: Not only is the after photo not one of gorga's projects, the house in the before photo still looks just like this. According to realtor.com, that one last sold just a few months ago. Swenson says she reached out to gorga via Instagram to ask him to take down the post you about he never responded. We felt like he was using our house to advertise his business and can't be making mistakes like that you have to make sure you check your facts and everything you put out there is true. Now, gorga eventually deleted that post and declined to comment but a source close to the reality star tells ABC news gorga's social media manager shared it by mistake and that even though he never spoke to the homeowners directly he did work with the group of investors to help fund the construction of that home. As for the swenssons they say mistakes like that should not happen and he should be more careful in the future. Hmm. I see some skeptics here.
