Demetria has been dating TV executive Roger Bobb for several years and would love to take their relationship to the next level. Balancing her career and relationship while raising a son as a single mother hasn’t always been easy, but Demetria strongly believes family comes first.

She is currently working as a co-host on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show and a frequent contributor on HLN’s Dr. Drew On Call.

Most recently, the Rhode Island native appeared on NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
