When I first heard that Ice-T and Coco were going to get their own reality called “Ice Loves Coco”, I thought, it was a joke. The show came about, because Coco wants to take her career to the next level. It has not been declared what the next level is, but know that is the goal. Let’s just hope it isn’t acting. While I do happen to agree with alot of politic comments from Ice-T, would I want to see him at home, in a Speedo or taking a shower? You know how reality television sometimes shows you too much information.
I did know that I would turn in at least for a few shows. Ice-T and Coco would either be a hot mess to watch or at least mindless entertainment for a few minutes. My other reason I wanted to turn in is due to the fact that I am now matchmaking for interracial couples. I wanted to see if Ice-T and Coco would show off a different side than is normally portrayed on television between interracial couples. Unfortunately, the talk shows, Jerry Springer and Maury, show interracial love as a train wreck while a lot of other shows display stereotypes, so my fingers were crossed that there would be a positive spin on this reality show.
Within minutes of the show coming on, not only did Ice love Coco, but so did I. Actually, I love them both, especially together. Coco is quirky which is what is so awesome about her; even Ice sometimes doesn’t know what to say. He just looks at her, because he knows she is going to do keep on with her idea. As he says “why should he be a wet blanket on what she wants to do?” There was a scene of Coco working out to keep killer curves. Any woman who works out on her heels (and can) is my kinda girl.
They have only spent one night apart, who would have thought? When Coco said she never got to wear a wedding dress for their wedding, the camera caught how Ice-T looked at Coco. It was priceless for at that moment, the audience could see his care and concern for her. By the end of the show, Ice suggested that they renew their vows. Now you know that is going to be fun to watch, who knows what these two will do for a wedding.
Who would have thought that an ex pimp and gangsta rapper would have one of the most loving and positive relationships in the entertainment business? They have total respect and admiration for each other. If you missed the show, check it out. You may think of it as a guilty pleasure, but you will give a whole lot of relationship tips from Ice T and Coco. Now we know how they have been together for ten years strong.
