New Mexico born and bred Demetria McKinney is the perfect shadow of the populous, busy, beautiful, and tough city that the diversified high-altitude city Albuquerque is. Simply, it seems like she is everything at once. She is hot, multi-talented, multidimensional and what not.
Born on August 27, 1978, Demetria Dyan McKinney was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, US in a family comprising of her loving parents.
Having military father in the family made her a military-brat. It was an experience that her non-military childhood friends couldn’t enjoy. MRE’s, military phonetics, military id, calling everyone by their last name, disciplined life and many more practices are the acquisitions that a military brat may derive from a military upbringing and our tweety bird case was no different.
In fact, she had to move to Philippines after she was born. Fortunately, she returned back to USA with her air force officer dad and other family members when she was five.
Later, the family moved to Walton Beach, Florida and later, her father was appointed as a Deacon, an ordained minister of an order ranking below that of priest. In this way, she was introduced to the Catholic religion that she still follows.
Obviously, spending your childhood in a church surrounding has its own good and bad side. The good things that she derived from her childhood are values, discipline and love. Nevertheless, good upbringing helped her to recognize her inner-power.
Because of her supporting and fun loving parents, she was recognized as a home-singer at the age of 3. At the age of 4, she was already singing for friends and family.
In her school days, she participated in basketball and track running because of her interests in both of the sports. Not only that, she was attracted by football as well. This is why she watches football matches even now when she gets time.
Art major from Walton high school, Demetria childhood dream was to be an R&B singer. However, she couldn’t venture out to singing industry like she wanted. That’s because she had to look after her new-born son all by herself. This is also the reason why she dropped out from her college.
The biggest irony in your life occurs when you have to do things you defy. Demetria used to make fun of her drama-enrolled friends during her school days. But, when she applied for a vocal scholarship, the college procedure asked her to audition for 2 plays; Into the Woods as a witch and Bus Stop. However, she had never pondered about acting previously.
As much as she despised acting, she had to do it. She had to do it for her son. She was in no mood to go to her parents and ask for support. So, she applied for the scholarship and fulfilled all the procedures. Fortunately, she won the scholarship. Later, she completed her studies from Italy as part of the scholarship program.
Now fast-forwarding to 2015, we particularly know her as an award-winning actress, singer and songwriter. As an actress, she is mostly known for her award-winning performance in the American sitcom Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. In the television show, she appears as the responsible mother and wife turned addict Janine Shelton (2006-2012). Most recently, she is a timely cast of Bravo TV’s popular reality show Real Housewives of Atlanta (2014-present).
One thing that will always make her happy is music. It is said that she now wants her name in the list of R&B spotlights. Her first album namely Officially Yours (expected to be released this year) is speculated to be a hit given success of its previously released songs such as 100 and Trade It All.
Now moving on to her physical configuration, she is an average tall woman with the height of 5 feet and 8 inches. By judging her pictures, we think she is an hourglass shaped. Anyway, her exact ethnicity is not known. Many have said that she is an African American, and there are people as well who like to speculate that she is an inter-racial.
Most importantly, she is an attractive hot and sexy woman. Toned thigh and legs, shapely breasts, beautiful eyes, silky/well-maintained hair and an awesome dressing sense make her a woman that everyone desires. Plus, the model/actress down-to-earth and straightforward personality is like cherry on the cake.
Fame, money or friends, you name it- she has it all. Over and above that, she has accumulated massive net worth of 3 million US dollars. Large part of the net worth comes from her busy acting career (2004-present).
If you didn’t know, Demetria is a gambler when we are talking about love. She gambled with her first love, but that didn’t work out too well. Anyway, she is currently in an on-again and off-again relationship with the Atlanta’s production tycoon Roger Bobb, President/CEO of Bobbcat Films.
Boyfriend/Potential husband Bob has a daughter from his previous relationship and Demtria has a 14-year-old son from her previous relationship.
About the couple, what we know is that they have been dating since 8 years. The couple reportedly shares a strong bond. We got to see such strong bond when the couple went through a difficult situation recently.
The difficult situation we are talking about is no other than Rob’s cheating scandal that heated our TV screen on Jan, 4, 2015 episode of RHOA.
However, the strong claims of Kandi’s partner-in-crime Gocha, the woman who we saw in the show claiming she is dating Bob as well, couldn’t break the Demetria and Robb’s relationship.
It is said that McKinney and Roger are in love with each other and therefore, they will commit to each other forgetting the past.
In fact, Roger recently has led the foundation of their marriage by neither denying nor accepting the HipHollywood.com question about him putting ring on her finger.
On the other hand, Demitria has also publicly stated that the sad incident made their relationship even stronger. Moreover, she has also stated that the incident doesn’t bother her since she was not dating Robb when Robb-Gocha happened.
So, don’t get surprised if the longtime dating couple decides to get married?
