Demetria McKinney, age 36, returns tonight on an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta after being absent from the show as she is no longer an official cast member. When we previously saw her on the show, she was a music artist who was dating producer Roger Bobb and she was a sexy single mother to her only son. Now she's back and she's working with RHOA star Kandi Burruss. The two have even produced a music video together. The music video is called "Unnecessary Trouble" and McKinney was very grateful for Burruss' collaboration, posting this message on Instagram: Have to give a moment to this talented Beautifully glowing lady here @kandiburruss. The people I've been able to work with aren't newbies to the game and I so appreciate her willingness to work with and along side me. It's been awesome and I can't wait to perform with her! #unnecessarytrouble @eone_music #officiallyyours. Click here to check out some of Demetria McKinney's music. So, now that you've got the rundown on McKinney's music, what's going on with her love life? Is she still dating Roger Bobb? Though a woman named Gocha Hawkins came out and said she was dating Bobb at the same time as McKinney, this did not seem to faze McKinney. The last we heard, she and Bobb are still going strong.

McKinney talked to Cocoa Fab about having a teenage son, saying: My son is my lifesaver. When I had him I was at a really lost time in my life and God knows what to do to set things right if you let Him. My son came in and it made me have to grow up and it made me take things seriously but it also kept me so young. We grew up together and in the process of having a son I got a life partner, I got a best friend and I got a responsibility that made me proud of being who I am.
McKinney is an actress as well as a singer. Many people know her as Janine Shelton–Payne on the TBS comedy sitcom "Tyler Perry's House of Payne."
Demetria McKinney talked about how fellow women can be bullies and about living as a single mother, explaining: I have had hard times as a single mom and I’ve had a hard time in dealing with myself and women in general. Women can be some of the biggest bullies there are.
McKinney talked about her son to Cocoa Fab and said: My son is a skater. he’s not into rap and playing basketball. He’s 6’3″ and he’s so far from the norm of what they would like to cast us as.
