A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

The series contains positive messages about marriage and relationships related to supporting a spouse's career, working on good communication, enjoying time together, etc. The couple's relationship might reinforce unrealistic expectations about relationships (such as their unwillingness to be apart). Lots of over-the-top consumerism.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Ice-T sometimes appears to be the more dominant figure in the relationship, but they are both respectful and supportive of each other. Coco's physical appearance is her primary business asset.


Ice-T occasionally refers to his past hustling days. 


Coco is known for having an extremely voluptuous physique, and is frequently seen wearing and modeling extremely tight, revealing outfits to highlight this. Pregnancy and child bearing is discussed.


There’s lots of cursing. Words like “Goddamn,” “s--t,” “f--k” are fully bleeped. Song lyrics sometimes contain sexually explicit material.


Nicole Austin’s brand, Coco’s World, is prominently featured throughout the show. Companies who hire her for modeling gigs, like House of Bridal Couture, are also visible. Ice likes to wear silk Monte Carlo shirts.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Social drinking is occasionally visible.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this reality show contains some positive messages about marriage and relationships. It also contains lots of strong language (“s--t,” “f--k”  are bleeped), skin-revealing outfits, and some drinking. Coco’s brand, Coco’s World, is prominently featured throughout the show.

What's the story?

ICE LOVES COCO is a reality show that follows rap artist and Law & Order: SVU actor Ice-T and his wife, online personality and model Nicole “Coco” Austin. The happy couple -- married for 10 years -- is always together and even shares a cell phone. While the rapper continues his career, he also supports Coco as she builds her own company, Coco’s World, with the help of publicist SoulJee and assistant Sparkle. When they are not supporting each other on set or on modeling shoots, the two, along with their dog Spartacus, spend their time together having fun.

Is it any good?

The series offers an inside look into the close and very traditional married relationship between this seemingly untraditional pair. It highlights how much they love and respect each other, and how they support each other’s careers in the entertainment industry.

The show’s many voyeuristic moments, which range from following the couple as they look at $4,900 cashmere dog sweaters to watching Coco work out in high heels, are intended for older audiences. But it does send some positive messages about commitment and love.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about marriage. What makes a good marriage? Is it compatibility? Compromise? Other factors? Do you think viewers are getting a realistic image of what this marriage is like, or do you think it’s being presented a certain way for the cameras? Is it healthy for couples to always be together, like Ice and Coco say they are?

  • Why do so many people agree to do reality shows about their personal lives? Is it for fame, money, something else?

  • Talk about Coco's penchant for wearing revealing clothing and high heels even during exercise. What kinds of stereotypes is she reinforcing, or challenging? Would you consider her a role model for young women?
