Congratulations are in order for Real Housewife of Atlanta Demetria McKinney! The reality TV star got engaged to her longtime love and TV executive Roger Bobb ‐ and she isn't shy about showing off her fabulous engagement ring.
McKinney posed for photos with her sparkly new bling at the Growing Up Hip Hop premiere at SCADshow in Atlanta on Tuesday, People reports. In a form-fitting blue and black cut-out dress, McKinney — who's best known for her role as Janine Payne on TBS sitcom Tyler Perry's House of Payne — struck a variety of poses that showcased her new hardware — whether it be with her left hand (and ring finger) resting on her hip, demurely placed against her chest, or on full display right next to her puckered up face (below). Who needs an engagement ring selfie when you've got the red carpet?!

Turns out, McKinney does! The Real Housewife also took to Instagram to share the news of her newly minted status — and take another opportunity to flaunt her round-cut halo engagement ring. "It's true! I'm no longer #RogerBobb girlfriend! We are #engaged ! Thank u to all who rooted for and supported us!" McKinney, 36, captioned the selfie.

The Bravo star, who has a teenage son from a previous relationship, has been dating Bobb for several years. According to Rolling Out, it's been quite the rocky road for the couple, who worked out their relationships woes on the Bravo show. During one episode of RHOA, McKinney went head-to-head with a woman who claimed to be having an affair with Bobb. "I dated him too. Not last November, but the November before that. I found out about you because you were in Vegas with him. He told me that you were just his artist," Kandi Burruss' friend Gocha Hawkins alleged. McKinney responded by saying, "I'm almost positive she's lying," adding, "I do not know her, but I know him."
While the controversy definitely caused some drama for the couple, it clearly wasn't enough to keep them apart. We can't wait to see what wedding details emerge!
