90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Ben Rathbun posts a happy picture with his friend Jessica and reveals how they restored their friendship.
Ben Rathbun reveals he has restored his friendship with Jessica Siciliano after their explosive fight at the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5 Tell-All. The 52-year-old reality star featured on the show with his young girlfriend, Mahogany Roca. The couple found each other online and immediately hit it off. After talking to Mahogany for three months, Ben wanted to meet her in person to see if she was real and if they had a connection. However, the 22-year-old Peruvian resident refused to meet Ben and take their relationship forward.
Despite Mahogany’s reluctance, he kept sending her messages, which many 90 Day Fiancé viewers thought was creepy. Ben received even more backlash for his misogynistic behavior at the Tell-All. He called his fellow cast member Kim Menzies a predator and implied her behavior was a big turn-off for him. Ben also butted heads with his friend Jessica during the Tell-All when he tried to pit her against Mahogany. Jessica joined the reunion episode as Ben’s friend, but she ended up calling him a narcissist and fraud.

Many 90 Day Fiancé viewers were convinced that Ben and Jessica’s friendship was over after their shocking fight. However, it seems the reality star was able to work things out with his friend. Ben posted a happy picture with Jessica on Instagram and revealed how she forgave him. Ben admitted that he failed Mahogany and Jessica by not defending either of them. Check out Ben’s post below:
Ben also wrote a message for his 90 Day Fiancé co-stars. He claimed that he values the friendships with his fellow cast members, despite what he said at the Tell-All. Most of Ben’s followers are glad to see that he has rekindled his friendship with Jessica. One user commented, “She was protective of you and she was really asking Mahogany the right questions.” However, some 90 Day Fiancé viewers still think that Ben and Jessica’s fight was fabricated, as they were eager to be on national TV.
To his credit, Ben is one of the only new 90 Day Fiancé stars who has apologized for his mistakes and practiced self-reflection instead of blaming the network or editing process. He had all the qualities of becoming the breakout star of the franchise, but his relationship with Mahogany made many viewers uncomfortable due to their age difference. Nevertheless, those who watch 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days are glad to see Jessica was able to forgive Ben after calling him a liar. Hopefully, their friendship is now stronger than ever.
