Gasmii I have to confess that I am a HUGE fan of Ice T and Coco! I know reality tv isn’t always reality but I’m in the group that truly feels like they really love each other and have such a great fantasy marriage. Anyway, last season we got to see the inner workings of Ice and Coco’s marriage and I have to say I always had this image of what Coco was like but she blew me away. You see all these pictures of her and you think she’s just a big booty ho but she’s a ho with a heart, ya’ll! She really has an infectious personality that kind of grows on you and you can tell that she balances out Ice. Last season, Coco’s baby fever began as her sister welcomed the newest member of her family, Austin, into the world…with the help of Coco! This season it looks like we’re going to dive into even more baby fever…but is it for their dog Spartacus or for themselves?
Coco and her friend, Soulgee, are updating Spartacus’ twitter which has 17,000 followers. Coco tells Soulgee that Spartacus only follows animals and not people though he does get some weird tweets. One from another dog asks if she can be Spartacus’ bitch…get it…female dogs are bitches har har har! Soulgee wonders how a dog can have more followers than him and when Ice asks how many followers Soulgee has, he replies that he only has 2.
Exactly why most people do not need a twitter.
Ice is on the set of Law and Order:SVU where he has been a member for 13 years. Speaking with fellow co-star Kelli Giddish, he lets her know that he is doing an interview with Jimmy Fallon that night. Ice then explains in voice over that his costars are like family to him since he was orphaned as a baby. Belzer is his Triple OG mentor that has taught him alot while Mariska is a sweetheart and Dan and Kelly are awesome. Kelly even has a dog named Frannie that has a crush on Spartacus. Ice also says it’s a great family because they all love Coco (although I can see why since she’s literally on set everyday and they kind of have to because you don’t want to f**k with an OG like Ice T).
Ice T excuses himself to go on set as Coco tells Kelly that she has been feeling queasy, dizzy and light-headed lately. Kelly asks the obvious if Coco is pregnant who replies that she doesn’t know. Coco doesn’t think she is but Kelly advises that she find out because if not, it could be something much worse than a parasite that lives inside your body for 9 months and then sticks around for another 18-25 years further sucking the life out of you.
Back at home, Ice asks Coco why she is acting so strange and she tells him that she is taking a pregnancy test. Ice gets the face every man gets when he thinks he might have accidentally fathered a child and then asks her how it could be possible if she is on the pill. The whole scene reeks of every pregnancy scare scene you see in a Lifetime movie. It always starts with the slightly hopeful gal playing dumb on how to take a pregnancy test though you know she’s taken about 40 in her life. Then you have the guy shitting his pants at all the money he’s going to lose for the rest of his life and repeatedly asking how it could happen if the girl was on birth control. Coco, though I’m convinced she knows how to pee on a stick like a pro, wonders if she should shake the stick. Detective Tutuola tells her to put the stick down gently and turn around while reading her her Miranda Rights. She also asks what a triangle means to which Ice says that it means you’re not even having a human. After a few minutes, Ice reads the test which is negative though he cautions her to go see a doctor to diagnose what is happening to her. Finally, he can breath a sigh of relief as he no longer has another $20,000 a month looming over his head.
Kristy and her husband, Derek, have arrived to indulge in the perks of being semi-related to a celebrity. They are all planning to go with Ice to visit the set of Jimmy Fallon but before that happens, Coco has to create a scene where she tells Kristy that she has taken a pregnancy test. I say create because as close as the two girls are, you know Kristy got the call with the special cash register ring tone as Coco was buying the pregnancy tests from Duane Reade. Kristy says that although it showed negative, Coco should still see a doctor because her other friends had the same thing happen and it turned out they really were pregnant. Kristy even replies that she was on the pill when she had Austin.
Seriously, I love these sisters
The girls then visit Dr. Kosta after having some blood work done. Before the doctor comes in, the girls talk about how Coco promised Kristy at 24 that they would raise their kids together but Coco has yet to get in on that promise while Kristy has 4 kids, I think. Dr. Kosta lets Coco know that she is not pregnant but that she does have dun dun DUNNNN…high blood pressure! The doctor recommends running various tests because someone who is 40 would be at risk for a heart attack but since Coco is only 32, she has a few years before the Silent Killer hits her. Coco is then told that she should have an MRI done and this whole scene is so over dramatic. Yes, high blood pressure is a dangerous thing but I think the doctor freaked poor Coco out more than relieving some of her anxiety and if stress is causing her blood pressure to rise, why would you stress her out making her think she could die in the next 5 minutes?
The girls head home where Derek doesn’t ask what happened at the doctor, he just reminds them they are late and that Ice is already getting ready. Dollar Sign Derek does not play when it comes to Jimmy Fallon. Backstage, Coco can’t relax so she starts googling her symptoms only to come up with a list ranging from anxiety to fibro myalgia which she butchers. Derek says it a disease where pain is of an unknown origin and Coco says she has it! Dollar Sign Derek tells her she definitely doesn’t have it. Ice says that the internet is full of quacks (ya’ll know he’s like 60 right, computers are new fangled things to him) and that he has friends that are doctors but aren’t doctors. For any normal person, that sentence would make no sense but for someone like Ice T, it’s truth (remember Dr. Dre?). Ice then tells Coco to look up hypochondriac and Derek jokes that she probably has Ebola which she questions for a bit as if it could be possible.
Ice forgets to name drop Belzer who plays his partner on the show and he learns from his hair guy that Belzer is upset about it. Ice asks if people really get mad about not getting name dropped and that he didn’t do it on purpose. Brian, the hair guy, says if he had named the hair and makeup department but not Brian, he would be pissed. Since Ice is working, Soulgee and Kristy accompany Coco while she gets her MRI. She asks if it can detect cancer and Kristy relays that Coco always feels like she has cancer. I’m guessing its because she excessively tans, has some fake body parts and uses a lot of peroxide. My cancer concern level would be high with all of that too. Coco says she feels like throwing up and starts to break down and cry but is eventually strapped into the machine and lets us know she won’t receive the results for 2 days and that the unknown is what is scary.
Seriously, MRIs are ridiculously creepy.
Back on SVU, Ice asks Dan if Belzer is upset about not dropping his name on Fallon since he’s not talking to Ice like he normally does. Dan says that Belzer always has a face about him like he needs to shit and then excuses himself to the bar. Ice then joins Kristy, Dollar Sign and Coco for a chartered cruise around Ellis Island where he says that he should apologize in case Belzer is upset but that Belzer is also a dickster and could be playing Ice for a fool by pretending to be upset. Even though the scenery is beautiful, Coco can’t relax and Kristy makes her promise to call her as soon as she knows what the results are. Coco takes comfort in Ice’s arms as they reenact Titantic (which is coming back to theaters in 3D, ya’ll!).
I believe that the heart will go onnnnn
Ice and Coco go to the doctor to learn the results of Coco’s MRI and what could be happening to her. Coco says she never wants to go through this kind of testing again and Ice asks her what if something happens like she has a hematoma. He explains that he is trying to lighten the mood and asks Coco if she remembers that they were supposed to be together for the long run to which she replies, “True”. Seriously, she said true not we will be together forever because we can beat this or yes and I plan to keep that promise but true. Gotta love her. The results of the test come back negative for kidney stones or an enlarged heart, in fact they don’t know what is causing her high blood pressure but they do know one thing; Coco cannot get pregnant while she is dealing with high blood pressure. Back at home, the couple discuss Coco changing her diet and adding in more excercise so she can lower her blood pressure in a healthy way because she does want to eventually have children. Ice calls himself a perfect specimen and then asks her for a kiss cautiously because he doesn’t want to raise her blood pressure any further.
Doesn’t matter what the results are, I’m sure they can get through it.
There’s another new episode on Monday that I’ll be recapping but what did you guys think of the season premiere? Are you ready for some baby fever with Ice and Coco? Are you a fan or do you think it’s fiction?
