LIGHTNING RELEASES 02/21/14 – Power couple Ben and Jewel Tankard who are stars of the mega hit Bravo / NBC reality series THICKER THAN WATER, stormed the red carpet in Atlanta last night in support of their Grammy winning friends Ericka and Tina and the season 3 premier of WE-TV reality series MARY-MARY. The Tankards had some of their co-stars / children in tow (Cyrene, Shanira, and Brooklyn) to pose for media pics and give audio and video interviews on the carpet prior to the debut screening of MARY-MARY S3.
Ben Tankard said “Even though we are all on different record labels, and TV networks, I believe we as born again believers (and African Americans) should eliminate competition and support each other by lending our gifts and influence. We DON”T have to agree on every melody, beat, episode, scene, hairdo and outfit in order to support each other’s ventures. We simply have to allow the love of God to flow…….everything else will work out over time. We love the REALNESS and We endorse MaryMary 1000 percent .”
