Ben Tankard

Ben explains the importance of meeting your wife's needs.

on Dec 2, 20130

Bravotv.com: Ben, how were you feeling about all the discord in the family? Did you think you could help Benji and Brooklyn get back together? What did you think of Britney’s comments on the drama?
Ben Tankard: Somewhat irritated, but I am an aircraft pilot so I am very used to turbulence in flight. One thing about turbulence is that it is TEMPORARY. I believe my patience and faith in God will outlast any relationship storms my family may face.

Bravotv.com: Did you think you could help Benji and Brooklyn get back together? 
Ben: Yes, I just need to support both of them in their goals, and maybe even create more projects for them to work on together, rather than being competitive.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Britney’s comments on the drama?  
Ben: She is so independent and free, I can totally understand her point of view. I can’t blame her! Sometimes I grab some buffalo wings and go hide out in my airplane hangar to hide from the family drama, LOL!

Ben:

 

You need to speak on jealousy in your sermons.  It is a sin and I think Juniece is jealous of the sucess and material things that you and Jewel have acquired. Why don't you just ask her husband why they moved from a nice home to a nice apartment.  Are they having money issues?  Do they want a loan?  Ask man ask.

Why did Jewel and Junetta have a problem with Junice's children being at the anniversary party and not Diamond.

No children means no children. Also, why was a purity ceremony only for your daughters and granddaughter at an anniversary party?

Ben I must say I started out very judgmental when I first saw this show.  I thought it was deplorable. After I saw you and wife on WWHL I had a different opinion of you.  You seem like very nice people and I'm not about to judge who's sincere with God and who's not.  That would be God's job.  I will say that I believe you all put too much emphasis on things.  Yes we all want nice things and I don't want to follow a minister who's broke down because I feel like he's not blessed but Jewel said something about fake it until you make it and that you should purchase designer bags etc.  That is horrible and irresponsible advice coming from a first lady.  If you agree, I hope you will discuss this with Jewel. Some of the people that look up to her and maybe some young viewers may take her up on that.  So many young people spend so much money on designer labels and don't have a dime in the bank.  I'm sure there was more to what she was saying but seeing how Bravo edits, one must be careful.

Ben definitely treats Cyrene the best n Brooklyn the worst..Benji is the one who needs to Man up n move out. I feel so sorry for Brooklyn..even when she tries to make amends for her mistakes she is dogged out! Ben should be more loving to her n less babying to Benji n Cyrene!!
