We all love a new addition to the family!
Nneka Ihim, supposedly signed up for season 8 of “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” will soon be seen on Bravo. The reality show has had a pretty stable core group and it is trying out new friends and even new periphery housewives.
There haven’t been any recent reports of “RHOP” cast members leaving or being fired. But TV Deets says that Nneka, a qualified attorney, will join “RHOP” as a new housewife.
She has a degree from the University of Michigan and a law degree from the University of Wisconsin. She used to be a CNN reporter, and she lives with her husband, Ikenna Ihim, in the Potomac area. The first “RHOP” season 8 cast event was filmed over the weekend, and a person close to the show told TV Deets that Nneka was there.
She is well-known in the Potomac area because her wedding to Ikenna was so fancy, and a Nigerian singer sang at it. She was born in Boston but spent her childhood in Wisconsin and her Instagram bio says she is from Nigeria and knows much about Champagne.
The new group member is the daughter of Leo Egbujiobi, a well-known interventional cardiologist and philanthropist. She got her bachelor’s degree in arts, English language, and literature from the University of Michigan. After that, she went to the University of Wisconsin Law School and got her doctorate in law.
Nneka Ihim’s first job was as a college reporter for CNN in Ann Arbor, Michigan, from September 2009 to June 2010. Then, she worked as a student attorney for Legal Services of South Central Michigan Inc for four months.
She then spent the summer as a junior attorney at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP in Rockford, Illinois. The upcoming “RHOP” season 8 mom worked eight years as a labor and employment attorney at Shenoi Koes LLP in Pasadena, California. After that, she became an employment counsel at Square, where she works now.
Dr. Ikenna Ihim, a doctor and investor in Potomac nightclubs, is married to a housewife. She will be joined by women like Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Wendy Osefo, Candiance Dillard Basset, Karen Huger, Mia Thornton, and Ashley Darby as they get ready for another season of the Bravo show.
Fans went on social media to talk about how excited they were about the new housewife. They said they hoped she would get along with Dr. Wendy and that she seemed like a great addition to the show.
Some people wondered if she was going to replace someone in the group. Others hoped that she would be rude to GEB and that “RHOP” would start over with Nneka as the big star.
Fans also said that the couple seems high quality, like the Osefos, and they’re excited to see what they bring to the show. Others said they’re glad the show is bringing in married people and new blood.
Others said they hoped someone would get fired because they couldn’t handle “RHOP” with eight full-time housewives. At the same time, some fans were excited about another Nigerian housewife.
