Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7: Is Demetria McKinney Joining the Cast?
Now that summer is winding down, we’re getting closer and closer to the expected early November debut of Season 7 of Real Housewives of Atlanta and the rumors about who may or may not be joining the cast have started to roll in. According to recent reports, the latest lady possibly headed for reality TV stardom is none other than actress Demetria McKinney!
Per Reality Tea, Demetria, who has appeared in House of Payne and various other Tyler Perry productions, was one of the “two new girls” Cynthia Bailey’s husband Peter Thomas mentioned in an interview from earlier this month. We’ll get to the other potential newbie later, but for now let’s focus on Demetria since apparently she already has some dramalicious ties to the RHoA cast.
Reality Tea notes Demetria has ties to Kenya Moore that could create plenty of tension on set. What could cause so much drama, you ask? A man, of course! Demetria is reportedly dating Roger Bobb, an executive producer for the Rickey Smiley Show whom Kenya was apparently flirting with hardcore last year. They may have slept together as well, though that intimate detail hasn’t been confirmed.
Tamara Tattles notes Roger is presenting himself as one of Atlanta’s hottest bachelors, though Demetria is under the impression that they are very much an exclusive item. To make matters even more complicated, Kenya and Roger are apparently still getting their flirt on. Producers are apparently trying to play up this conflict, keeping Kenya and Demetria apart in an effort to set the stage for an epic blowout down the line. Bring it on!
