Demetria McKinney was up for some show-off on social media as she gave fans a view of her toned body and perfect abs, giving off fitness inspiration.
"House Of Payne" actress Demetria Mckinney was quite the lovely view on her Instagram page after she shared a photo of herself looking lovely while displaying her slim frame.
The one-photo post was a mirror selfie that she collaged into two images, one being the other's mirror image. The retro-style pic had Mckinney rocking a fitted crop top.

She paired her top with white pants while holding her hair up in a full high bun. The TV star's flat tummy was on display, showing the slightly rigid lines and the sway of one hip. She addressed fans:
Many Hollywood talents do have their fair share of humble beginnings and the final shot to stardom. For McKinney, it was about facing molestation, surviving teenage motherhood, and holding on to resilience.
These days the star is in a better place, using her platform on the big screen to inspire many young ladies like her. However, when she was a struggling mom, McKinney had to depend on family members who took her in even when they had little.
After venturing into music, McKinney received an NAACP nomination for the Best Image Award for Outstanding New Artist.
The star who gained recognition through her role on Tyler Perry's "House of Payne," isolated with her son and gained a lot of insight on new projects she could write and work on.
McKinney, 41, can express herself through art, not in just one way but two. She also enjoys belting out sound in R&B to her slew of fans. As of 2017, the mom-of-one made her music debut.
The "Motherland" actress released her first album titled "Officially Yours" and opened up in an interview that the body of work helped her bare herself in the most vulnerable way.
McKinney has come a long way from 2006 appearing on TBS until 2012. After leaving "House of Payne," fans got to see the actress on "The Rickey Smiley Show," "Saints & Sinners," and "Superstition," among others.
Her stage acting credits included playing Deena Jones in 2012's "Dreamgirls" and Corretta Scott King in "I Dream." After venturing into music, McKinney received an NAACP nomination for the Best Image Award for Outstanding New Artist.
