“It’s none of our business.” “But they choose to make it our business by having a reality show and tweeting about it!” “You should be more concerned about your own life.” “What married couple argues over twitter anyway?!” “Are you really that surprised? I mean, really.” These are some of things you could say in response to the recent reveal of Coco’s sexy pics posing with a man who was NOT her husband Ice T, while she was in Vegas recently. And it probably is none of our business and we probably shouldn’t care, but I’m going to write about it anyway.
I woke up on Saturday morning, and after seeing what my real friends were up to in Facebook newsfeed, I started scrolling through my Twitter to see what all of my imaginary friends were up to. I was intrigued when I saw this tweet from Coco: “Woke up to people in a panic about some pics, please guys I’m happily married, sometimes fans & friends take silly pics. Its harmless. #RELAX” followed by “Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened”.
Huh?! What pics?! Coco is known for taking extremely sexy and risque pics, so if she’s apologizing about one, it must be bad.
So of course I headed over to Ice’s twitter to see what he was tweeting about. Here were some of his responses: “Coco’s in Vegas. She has given me her explanation of the pics…with some dude..” “He also said he knew me.. I don’t know dude” “Regardless.. They would take posed pics every time. Most of them disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look..And feel like s**t.” “I say this on Twitter because there’s no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple. That’s it. Any more questions ask @Cocoworld”. And he throws in a final “Don’t get it twisted… I’m not happy about this s**t.”
Both have since deleted their tweets.
So apparently “dude” is rapper AP.9 and the pics show them hugging on each other, and he was kissing her cheek and neck.
Here’s my opinion of the pics, if you were wondering: She totally knows someone is taking them and if she were really cheating on her husband with this guy she wouldn’t be allowing these pics to be taken. She was probably intoxicated at the time and thought the poses were just friendly and innocent, and then when she looked back at them sober realized maybe they were a little too friendly and not so innocent looking. I feel like she’s done worse poses for modeling shoots, so she probably didn’t think much of it. Don’t we all have friends who get a little too flirty when they’re drunk but they’re not actually cheaters? Most of the cheater friends are the ones you don’t suspect. Players know how to play.
And as far as airing it out on twitter and not by direct private contact, all I can come up with on that is since the pics were already out there and people were already talking, they probably both felt like they had to publicly address it some way. Also, we all have those friends whose Facebook statuses are annoyingly revealing and personal – They must just be two of “those.”
I might be coming to Coco’s defense because I spent the day with her once on the set of an Ice T music video I set up in the basement of a church in New Jersey (long story and I will tell you about in the future) and she was really nice. And smarter than her boobs and butt might make you think she is. We had some really down to earth conversations and were even wearing the same sunglasses. Ice was cool too. (Ha! Ice was cool – that was an accidental pun.)
What do you think? Is she cheating? Is this a publicity stunt? Do you think Ice T is a better rapper or actor? Can you not wait to see how this pans out? Or could you not care less? So many questions…
Of course one could argue that when both people in a couple are named after drinks you can’t take much of what they do seriously anyway. But still, underneath that powdery mix of celebrity and reality TV and paparazzi, they are a married couple who seem to be in love and as rare as that is in our society today, I hope those two crazy kids work this out.
