Are they “The Black Brady Bunch”? Award winning Gospel artist Ben Tankard and his family say they are, but the extended trailer for their forthcoming reality series, “Thicker Than Water,” might prove that they’re a lil’ different. Okay, make that a whole lot different.
In the clip below, we’re introduced to the Tankards and their varied personalities, including Mrs. Jewel Tankard, the mom and wife.
“God wanted us to be rich,” Mrs. Tankard tells Bravo. “The first time that I realized that God wanted us to be rich, I was a senior in college, and I saw this phenomenal man and woman of God standing up and preaching the Word. Honey, there wasn’t nothing broke about them. I said ‘Oh Lord, this is the Jesus that I know!’”
Watch the just over 2-minute preview for “Thicker Than Water” in video below. “Thicker Than Water” premieres Sunday, November 10 at 9/8c on Bravo.
So I have to say something. I’m going to give this show a chance. Yes, it’s probably not a good PR move to talk about how rich you are and how God wanted you to be rich and flaunt your wealth in front of millions, especially as a Gospel artist and “Church” family, but I’m interested enough to see what’s behind all of this concealer covered promo. Not for nothing, the stand out members of the family appear to be the daughters, Brooklyn (“I’m a Survivor!”) and Britney (“I work my nine-to-five like it’s nobodies business.”). They are clearly “real” and aren’t going to give us some “put on for TV” stuff. Love them already lol.
