Are We Really Ready For An Ice-T and Coco Reality Show?
Rapper and O.G. Ice-T is certainly a busy man these days. Of course, the man who infamously wrote and performed “Cop Killer” has made a living out of playing a cop for years (from New Jack City all the way to Law and Order: SVU). While the irony in the previous statement is a topic of much discussion when it comes to the man also known as Iceberg Slim, it hasn’t stopped him from making other moves in the entertainment world.
He’s readying a reality show which will hit E! in June. Entitled Ice Loves Coco, the show will revolve around their marriage as they support one another’s careers and contemplate having children…can’t make this stuff up, folks.
Ice recently talked to PopEater about the upcoming reality show.
“It’s a little show we’ve been working on. We kind of went against reality shows. They’ve been after us for a long time, they begged us, they pleaded with us. We said that we’d do something on our terms. It’s called Ice Loves Coco. It’s a fun show. It’s a show about our life and how Coco runs my life. It’s done in good taste and nobody’s fighting. It comes out June 12 on E! after the Kardashians.”
Did he just admit that his wife, Nicole “Coco” Austin runs his life? That’s a far cry from the gangster pimp persona we all came to know and love when Ice-T was at the height of his recording career.
Anyway, let’s be real. We will probably see a lot of Coco’s body in this show. If she really runs his life, this show will probably net her a great deal of screen time as Ice-T is already more visible than she is with a successful television career. Are we ready to take them seriously as a couple or see Ice-T running behind Coco like a sprung maniac? Not to mention the fact that the show will deal with the couple contemplating having children—meaning, Ice is looking to get his Larry King on. Honestly, it seems that this show has all the makings of a very viable guilty pleasure.
There is no word yet on whether Soulja Boy will make an appearance.
Ice Loves Coco will air on E! June 12. In the meantime, if you can’t get enough Ice-T, be sure to check out his new memoir entitled Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption—from South Central to Hollywood.
