Ice T and Coco are back for a new talk show, Ice & Coco.
Fans remember them from their short-lived reality show, Ice Loves Coco. They were a very traditional couple. Old fashioned even. Ice loved and supported Coco. Coco did traditional wife duties around the house like cooking and cleaning. She even “mothered” her dog. It seemed to work for them.
It’s a few years later and they’re making a comeback. Coco is pregnant and she’s doubling down on her feelings about traditional gender roles. She says a wife should be subservient. Always.
Coco explains her point of view: “I think all women should do it” referring to seeing herself as less than her husband. “I’m a slave to him. It has been 15 years and it has worked out.”
Ice clarifies that it should be the couple’s choice and work for them. “By [Coco’s] choice,” says Ice. “She likes that. She’s into that.”
Coco insists that she really is pregnant: “People think I am having a surrogate because there is nothing there, but it is there, guys! There is a lump there. See…,” she said, while turning to her side.
“Push presents” are a no-no says Ice: “I’m not into push presents. I think that push presents are something rich people made up. Black people don’t know nothing about no push presents. The baby is the present you should be happy with the baby.”
Coco shares baby names (they’ve settled on Chanel for their daughter): “Actually we came up with two names — a guy’s name (Titan) and a girl’s name (Chanel) — 10 years ago so we already had it planned.”
The expectant mother adds of baby names for a girl: “I didn’t want to name her Coco because I feel like that’s giving her too much of my identity. So I was like let’s go close to Coco and we’ll name her Chanel.”
