‘Ice & Coco’ Show

Ice T and Coco Austin aren’t afraid to share their thoughts on life and relationships. Their new talk show on FOX, Ice & Coco puts the once reality stars (anyone else watch Ice Loves Coco?) in front of the camera yet again as they interview celebrities and spill the tea on topics, like whether or not Coco will get a push gift from Ice after she delivers their first child, a little girl to be named Chanel.

‘I ain’t with it,” says Ice. “You want a gift, I get it, but shouldn’t the baby be the gift?”

For those who don’t know, a push gift or present is essentially a tangible thanks moms receive for delivering a child. It can be as simple as a favorite meal to something more lavish like jewelry.

As much as Ice does love his wife Coco, he can’t wrap his head around the concept of a push present.

“Are you sitting there holding the baby like, ‘oh that’s beautiful, but where’s my gift? Come on, where’s my ring though?'”

He later adds:

“I think if you appreciate your wife and she’s been through a struggle you can give her a gift, but it shouldn’t be demanded.”

As for Coco, she says she’s not expecting anything — though Ice did promise to take her somewhere rather interesting.

Take a look:

When it comes to push presents, what say you?

Ice T and Coco Are Finally Ready for Baby #1!

After 14 years of marriage, Ice T and Coco Austin explained why she is now ready to have their first child together.

“‘Thirty-five I’m going to have a child’ — I’ve been saying that my entire life,” Austin revealed to E! News. “When I got with him, I was like 35 is the number.”

But after turning 35, Austin wasn’t so sure how easy it would be to get pregnant.

“I was on the pill for 17 years,” she explained. “I got off the pill and was like ‘Hey, how are we going to do this?’ and they said it usually takes a year to regulate your body.”

“Two months later, BAM!” husband Ice T, 57, said, picking up the story. “I told her I could dial in twins if she wanted it.”

The rapper and “Law and Order: SVU” star added that he was often asked when they were going to have children.

“People were like, ‘Why isn’t she having a baby’ and she was on the pill. She doesn’t want to have one yet. The minute she gives me the green light, we’ll have a baby and it’s happening.”

The couple confirmed the news on social media earlier this week.

“I’m pregnant!!! Yah!! Ice & I are so excited! I announced it Friday on our new talkshow which airs Aug 3rd,” wrote Coco, who turned 36 in March.

She added on Instagram, “On the show I get into all the details about getting pregnant, the sex and how far along I am!! I was so overwhelmed I cried!”

Austin also shows off her “cute little tummy” and gives away the baby’s sex and how far along she is on the first episode of their Fox talk show.

But she did share that her pregnancy has been smooth so far.

“I have to say it’s been really easy breezy,” she told E! “I got sick one time and it was at night and the rest was easy peasy.”

Ice-T And Coco Expecting A Baby

Update 7/27/15: Coco took to Twitter to confirm her pregnancy shortly after this article was published. The pair is expected to discuss Coco’s progress into the pregnancy, the baby’s gender and other details when their new talk show, “Ice & Coco,” airs next month on FOX.


 

Apparently, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker aren’t the only reality stars expecting a bundle of joy.

According to TMZ, Tracy “Ice-T” Marrow, 57, and Nicole “Coco” Marrow, 36, are expecting their first child together. It is currently unclear how far along Coco is, and the gender of the baby has not been disclosed as of yet.

Ice-T fathers two children from previous relationships, LaTesha, 39, and Ice, 23. He also has two grandchildren, including 20-year-old Elyjah Marrow, who was charged in the accidental shooting of his roommate earlier this year.

Coco has been rather open about her desire to have a baby, but confessed to feeling pressured about when she would do so.

“There’s a lot of peer pressure for me,” she told E! News in 2012. “It’s not just my family that’s giving it, it’s the world…When the time’s right, I will. I feel like I’m still young, and I have time.”

Ice, however, shared that he would be on board whenever his wife decided that she was ready.

“At the end of the day, it’s Coco’s call,” said Ice, 53. “She puts in the order and I can do the deed.”

Ice and Coco are already the proud parents of two adorable English bulldogs, Spartacus and Maximus.

Rapper Ice-T’s grandson has been indicted in the death of his roommate.

The 20-year-old, Elyjah Marrow was arrested last June after accidentally shooting his roommate Daryus Johnson, in the chest.

Daryus, 19-years-old, was shot with a stolen gun. According to People,

Police found Johnson unconscious at Bentley Manor Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, and he was later pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital.

“Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun,” Officer David Baldwin told The Marietta Daily Journal at the time. “That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed.”

Elyjah has been indicted on multiple charges including, involuntary manslaughter, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.

It’s truly sad to see a young black man in a situation like this.

Many celebrities make a trip to the plastic surgeon to have work done at some point in their career. However, sometimes these celebs get a little too carried away trying to enhance one part of their body, like “the girls.”

Naya Rivera currently stars on the hit show “Glee” and is engaged to rapper Big Sean but last week she made headlines for a totally different reason. Pictures surfaced of the “Glee” star with her breasts remarkably bigger than they were before. However, Rivera has denied getting a boob job even though it appears she’s gone up at least two cup sizes.

Say Cheese! Celebs Caught Cheating By The Paparazzi

Being a celebrity means you trade your privacy for fame and fortune, so you’d think stars would be more careful when they’re out cheating on their partners. You just never know when there could be an overly eager and stealthy paparazzi lurking in the bushes — as these famous cheaters found out the hard way.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson met on the set of the popular Twilight movie back in 2008. Although they didn’t come out as a couple publicly, their relationship was no secret. Fans of the franchise were just as heartbroken as Pattinson when Us Weekly published photos of Stewart and much older director of Snow White and the Huntsmen Rupert Sanders making out like the plane was going down. Stewart and Pattinson tried to move past her transgressions but they eventually split up. Sanders’ ten-year marriage to wife and model Liberty Ross was also a casualty of their extramarital affair. Ross filed for divorce at the top of this year and is seeking spousal support.

What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Pic Of 2 Chainz With His ‘New Boo’ Mariska Hargitay

We’ve seen Rihanna and Chris Brown lookalikes on “Law & Order: SVU,” but are you ready for the real 2 Chainz to hit the set of the crime drama? If not, that’s too bad because it’s happening — according to this pic the self–professed “hair weave killer” posted on Instragram last night.

Imagine my surprise as I scrolled my timeline and came across this image of 2 Chainz with his arm around a scary looking white woman and then realized…gasp!… that’s Olivia Benson. From the grin on his face — and the look of confusion on hers — it’s clear to see he’s a bit more excited about this new venture than Mariska Hargitay is, especially since he put a caption “my new boo” and she’s looking like “why do I have to do this?”

At first I thought 2 Chainz might have just been hanging around on set, but then I noticed another pic of him and Ice-T and a third image that appears to be a script with his name on it and that of the character I assume he’ll be playing, Calvin “Pearlie” Jones. Going by that name, it’s probably safe to assume he’ll be playing either a pimp, drug dealer, rapper or a regular negro living in his mama’s basement.

As interested as I am in catching those details, I’m more concerned with this photo right now and what you think was going through both of their heads in this shot. Caption the pic and tell us what you think.

 

 

Does Ice Really Love Coco? & Why Pimping Ain’t Always Easy

I’ve been loosely following the whole Coco Austin and Ice T sex tape scandal and I’m not sure if I should feel sad for Coco, and subsequently her husband Ice T, or chalk this up to just a matter of chickens coming home to roost?

I know that there is a delicious irony in seeing a former rapper and self-professed pimp, who made a career of objectifying women including his first wife, now wallow in the same subjugating cess pool he had once championed. However, it is hard for me to celebrate when there is the exploitation of another woman at afoot, even if she is not the beacon of women progression we hope for.

For all intents and purposes, Coco, born Nicole Austin, is the manifestation of everything that is wrong and chauvinistic with our culture. Not only was her entire image birthed out of a desire to appease the male gaze but more specifically, her entire packaging has co-oped and capitalized on a certain bottom heavy aesthetic, which has largely been synonyms with black women. The anomaly of being a white girl with a booty has provided Austin with opportunities that women with dark hues and more genetically natural curves are not afforded, particularly a starring role in a Vegas show. The mainstream sees Austin’s naughty girl routine as bubbly, vivacious and of course, sexay. However those same descriptives are rarely found or used when discussing your average video vixen. In the latter, we are suppose to feel nothing by pity and sympathy for them. Last I checked nobody was offering Karrine “Superhead” Steffans a show anywhere and her sexual posturing is probably more authentic than Austin’s carbon copy in platinum blonde. But I guess when you are white, it will get it done. Hat tip to Jen the Pen…

However the angst over Austin’s hot persona pales in comparison to the sheer ridiculousness that is the Ice-T/Coco’s relationship – or at least the relationship they play out in front of cameras. There is no doubt that the couple loves playing up the whole pimp ho dynamic, And who can blame them? The entire pimp culture has been glamorized through not only Ice T’s music but through films like The Mack and Dolomite. The two have even gone as far as to dress in the attire at a recent award show. But while the Tees revel in the romanticized version of pimping, mainly the bedazzled pimp cups and barely there attire, real life girls (and some boys) are being sold against their wills into prostitution and used as sex slaves. In fact the average age for a girl recruited into the sex trafficking industry is only 12 years old. Fact of the matter is that pimp culture, violence and sexual abuse and manipulation are intertwined. And the sexual domination of mostly women and children by men is probably not the healthiest image you want to promote as man and wife.

This, of course, leads me to the sex tape, which is being shopped around from some rapper, who no one has ever heard of. And perhaps that the point of getting the tape out there. Name recognition, mainly at the expense of a woman, whose own image is clearly not of her own making nor benefit. Case in point, check out how Ice-T responded when he found out about his wife’s Vegas follies. First he publicly chastised his own wife and then he addressed the “haters:”

Don’t worry about me… Worry about earthquakes and hurricanes.. I got this. It’s not about the come up…. It’s all about the comeback!
Everyone with opinions about MY personal life.. Can ‘Eat a Hot Bowl of D-cks’ Check YOUR b-tch.
My wife checks 100k a week….. Worry about your broke ho….. Not your b-tch. Not your concern.

In all this grandstanding and boosting, however, are there any words directed at the guy in question, even after he has threatened Ice T with physical violence? In the end Ice T still gets to maintain his role as the pimp in the situation while Austin, who had to apologize publicly to her husband for her “indiscretions,” bares the brunt of what often befalls those classified as the product. It would seem that it is only cool and respectable when Austin embodied the free-wheeling, sexay girl persona just as long as the beneficiary was Ice T, her husband. But being sexually free and public for herself? Well now, that is just flat out hoe-ish. I guess whoever said pimping wasn’t easy must never thought about what it is like to be the hoe.
