Actress Demetria McKinney showed off her impressive beauty and gave fans a glimpse of her flashy jewelry collection in a new picture she posted to Instagram.
Demetria McKinney isn’t a new name or face for the regular watchers of “Tyler Perry's House of Payne." So, when she took to her verified Instagram account to post a picture of herself in a purple and black ensemble, her many fans were thrilled.

The actress not only showed off her made-up face in the mirror selfie, but the four rings she had in her left hand were also on full display alongside two gold necklaces. Telling her 694,000 followers that she just wanted to “say hi,” Demetria pouted at the mirror and threw up two fingers for the peace sign.
Demetria became a mother when she was just seventeen. Thus, she had to run her career alongside being a single mother.
Besides being a regular on “Tyler Perry's House of Payne” from 2006 to 2012, the actress and singer also appeared frequently on “The Rickey Smiley Show,” “Saints & Sinners,” “The Quad,” and “Superstition.”
Her IMDb page adds that she has a few stage credits to her name which include her 2012 appearance in “Dreamgirls” and 2010’s “Rhythm and Blues Opera I Dream.”
Amid her success, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has faced some troubling times. HollywoodMask recapped that Demetria became a mother when she was just seventeen; thus, she had to run her career alongside being a single mother.
Some years after that, the now-40-year-old got into a long term relationship with Roger Bobb. The relationship led the couple to get engaged around January 2016 — an event that Demetria shared openly as she occasionally showed off her engagement ring on her social media pages.

Unfortunately, the engagement didn’t last long as Demetria and Roger went their separate ways in September of the same year. Bravo reported at the time that it seemed Demetria moved on with Eric "Nealante" Phillips as she declared in a now-deleted Instagram post:
“Life is good. I am happy, making amazing music with @nealante, and in a new relationship ....yes, with this cutie right here!”
Back in May, 6abc disclosed that the “Devious Maids” star is dedicating her platform to doing the best for women. One of the ways that she’s allegedly achieving that feat is through her appearance on the Freeform show, “Motherland: Fort Salem,” as she plays the role of Sergeant Anacostia Quartermaine on it.
