This Thursday, a rare double interview with Ice-T and Coco will air on Mario Lopez One-on-One — and Star has a sneak peek! In this clip, the Law and Order star gushes about how his wife of 12 years changed his life.
“Coco came through the door and I was like, you know…’I’m looking for somebody to hold me down. I don’t need another number in my phone book,'” he told Mario Lopez. “And she was like, ‘I’m that chick.'”
At that point, Coco says, she dropped her modeling career for six years to handle her husband’s business. “I remember nearing 30 and thinking…if I want to get back into something, I should probably do it now, before I start having kids or something like that,” the 35-year-old said, of her modeling comeback. “So that’s when I came back with my calendars and DVDs…and that’s when I blew up.”
And she got some help from Ice-T when it came time to return to the spotlight. “We formatted her modeling to, like, an independent record structure,” he explained. “‘I said, ‘Instead of being the model that goes off and the camera man owns the pictures, since you got some money and a husband, hire the camera man that you own the pictures. That way you can control your image.’ Once she said, ‘I’m modeling again,’ it just went crazy.”
