Who is Roger Bobb? Why thank you for asking. We’ve been meaning to chat about the new reality star since his debut on the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta.”
If you’ve been keeping up with season 7 of “RHOA,” Bobb has been stirring up a bunch of trouble on the show since it was revealed he was dating two women at the same damn time. Chile, Demetria McKinney got the shocker of her life when she found out Roger (who she’s been dating for eight years) was cheating on her with a blue-haired woman named Gocha Hawkins, who also happens to be Kandi Burruss‘ friend.
Demetria was in denial about it all but Roger didn’t deny that he was dating Gocha. Messy, messy, messy. Well Roger may keep a side chick or two in his stable, but he and Demetria are still going strong.
With Roger causing all this hoopla, we Googled him and found out he’s a pretty impressive man (minus the cheating and all).
Here’s some facts about the film and television producer:
His full name is Roger Marcellus Bobb.
He was born in London, England, but was raised in Brooklyn by two Guyanese parents.
In 1995, he was accepted into the Directors Guild of America’s Assistant Director Trainee program.

He has won six NAACP Image Awards and the only two-time winner at the American Black Film Festival.

Oop, we’d be fighting over him too. Just kidding.
