Ice T and his blonde brideCoco of 11 years revealed their secret to a loving, long-term relationship, and even shared some dating tips for all the single men and women out there as well!
You two are so in love after all these years. What’s your secret?
Ice: We’re not breaking up. It’s not part of the plan. We talk a lot, we got great communication and I think that you gotta stay on the same team. I think a lot of time, celebrity life, both people have careers and they kind of create two teams that potentially work against each other, you gotta stay on the same team.
What would be the surprise to know about you two?
Ice: I think we’ve already surprised everybody. I think the fact that I was a gangbanger, Coco flung around on a stripper pole a while back, that’s what they thought and now they see we’re pretty normal.
Ice, what tips would you have for bachelors out there to land a great girl like Coco?
Ice: Get your shit together. … When I say get yourself together, I mean not only financially but mentally. You don’t wanna be a guy that nags and drives a chick crazy. You wanna be a mellow, good guy if you want a good girl, and the same goes for woman. Stop worrying about what’s so wrong with the guys and take a good look at yourself. You’re going to get what you give. … I think people have unjustifiable egos and you got the guy that’s got no job, out of shape, he’s not together but he wants some supermodel. And you got the girl that’s not really taking care of herself, she’s all fu***** up and wants some handsome rich man. And nah, not gonna happen (laughs). Step your game up and you’ll get your equal usually.
Coco, you’re known for your sexy style and bikinis especially. Do you have any fashion tips for the ladies?
Coco: I really like colors and colors say a lot about the person’s personality. It’s funny because when I was doing the show, [and] I put on a black shirt, everybody is like, ‘You know what, you should stay in the colors because you’re a California girl, very happy-go-lucky and it’s true. When you wear black all the time, you’re kinda saying ‘I’m depressed.’ So when I wear a pink outfit, I feel bubbly. … Also when you’re trying to feel sexy, I know every girl, if they throw on a pair of heels with a pair of jeans, those heels will just make you feel like a totally different person. So, definitely heels is a must. I’m talking it doesn’t have to be a dress, just one pair of heels will do a big job for both the girls and the boys because the boys like to see girls in heels.
Can we expect any kids between you two?
Coco: It’s funny, every time I talk about babies on my Twitter, it’s just overhaul of all these woman just want it, want it, want it. If that’s the case why don’t you guys just have one for me (laughs), and send it in the mail. But thank you so much for the support but it’s very cute how everyone supports me that much. Because if you look at these other crazy couples, they’re not saying have a baby with them. They don’t want them to have babies but obviously they like Ice and I as a couple, and they respect us.
What don’t we see on the show between you two?
Coco: Us sleeping, us going to the bathroom, us having sex, the intimate parts you don’t see.
Ice: We don’t fight, we don’t argue. That’s not really how our operation runs. I’ve been running business for years and if you raise your voice around me, you’re fired. We don’t deal with problems like that so it was kinda important for us to show people that you can be functional. I don’t think just because you’re on television everything is extremely dysfunctional. Now it can be crazy and wild but it’s not malicious.
Where else can we spot you two?
Ice: This season, Coco does a little cameo on Law and Order.
Coco: My third cameo, I pop up again.
Ice adds: Just make sure everyone tunes in on February 19th [to Ice Loves Coco]. Tell them to watch it backwards and out of sequence. Since it is based on a reality, you wanna see it in order so you know what happened before, and also if you haven’t seen the show, try to catch up and watch last season.
