On this week’s episode of Bravo TV’s “Thicker Than Water”, starring Gospel’s Tankard Family, we saw Brooklyn tell her dad, Ben, that her actions are a result of being abandoned as a child. In lieu of the conversation between the two, Bravo TV has a chat with Ben to see if he thinks Brooklyn is playing the guilt card. Check out what he had to say below and then view the actual scene from “Thicker Than Water”.
Bravotv.com: Ben, when your children talk about Brooklyn going out in front of Diamond, do you think that affects her?
Ben: Yes, and that is why I ask her to leave the room when we are discussing Brooklyn. She is just a kid and does not need to process adult matters at this point in her life, especially regarding her mom.
Bravotv.com: Ben, when Brooklyn says you weren’t there for her while she was growing up, how does that make you feel? Brooklyn is pulling the “abandoned” card again. You said she is getting older and that card isn’t working anymore. Do you think she’s using it as an excuse?
Ben: I have become suspicious that she is playing that old guilt card to get her way, because she only conveniently mentions it when she is challenged on her disappearing acts. There is Diamond to consider now, and I don’t want her repeat the same cycle I was guilty of when she was young: becoming a missing parent in lieu of career pursuits.
