As Bravo stars, the Real Housewives of Potomac are used to having their lavish lifestyles questioned. In the case of Nneka Ihim, her successful career has brought immense wealth with it. She is a second-generation immigrant. Both of her parents were born in Nigeria, but moved to the U.S. and Nneka was born in Boston.
Nneka's parents then moved to the Midwest and she grew up in Wisconsin. Nneka stayed in the region for higher education and graduated from the University of Michigan. She had a decorated career as a lawyer before joining the Real Housewives lifestyle.

Nneka Ihim showed off her gorgeous home.
“I just recently closed on a beautiful home in Potomac. My house is five bedrooms, five baths, 6,000 square feet, beautiful deck," Nneka proudly said in Season 8, Episode 2 as she made her bold RHOP debut. Much of the home was still under construction in the episode, but fans got a glimpse behind the scenes.
From the looks of it, the mansion features hardwood floors, white walls, and huge windows. Plus, there's an elegant stone fireplace. The property also has a large backyard. Nneka made it clear that she wasn't a fan of the gold chandelier.
The reality star's bedroom was pretty empty, but Ikenna did make a point to talk about the bathroom plans. He made a big deal about certain conditions for the bathroom so he could spend some peaceful time in the tub.
"You don’t take baths. What are you talking about?” Nneka retorted. “Now that you’ve moved to Potomac you wanna take baths?” Her husband clarified that he did, in fact, want to take up bath time.
As it turns out Nneka is actually no stranger to property ownership. Her family holds property globally which Nneka found out is actually quite the problem... in her opinion.
“I never knew generational wealth was a problem until I got delayed for my closing,” she said. “The mortgage company found out that I had other properties that I failed to list: two lakefront properties in Wisconsin, a property in Florida, two properties in Maryland, we have property in Georgia, and we have several properties in Nigeria, I think.”
Alongside Nneka's beautiful home and huge move came her entrance on the show where she immediately started up some drama. In fact, she already made a snappy remark to Dr. Wendy Osefo, questioning her credentials. "Is she a medical doctor?" Nneka asked.
