Coco Austin; Is Ice-T’s Lady Baring It All?

Nicole ‘Coco’ Austin, also known as Coco-T or rapper and actor Ice-T’s wife, is primarily a glamour model, reality star and celebrity gossip mainstay.  She is best known for her 39DD-23-40 measurements and bubble shaped derrière.  She is a former Playboy model and along with her husband, Coco starred in “Ice Loves Coco” a reality television series for the E! network from June 12, 2011 to February 2014. After the show ended, there were rumors that Coco and Ice-T were developing another reality series with Ryan Seacrest’s production company.

Coco’s over-the-top appearance has become her personal brand and she’s said that her look is “My personality. I just like flashy fabulous clothes. I celebrate the woman’s form. Most of the women who follow me or who have been my fans for a long time, they’re all about it. They’re like, ‘You’ve given me confidence that I can wear stuff that I’ve always wanted to, but I was always self-conscious of my curves.’ I’m actually breaking it all up for women out there who feel like their bodies are hideous. They shouldn’t feel that way. It should be a beautiful thing.”  Coco launched her own clothing line in May 2001 called “Licious” billed as “For the everyday woman with curves.” The clothes feature dresses, swimwear and jeans that can fit a skinny size 2 up to a voluptuous size 14.  Coco is also active on social media and has her own website where she constantly updates her fans about what is going on in her life.

Nicole “Coco” Natalie Austin was born on March 17, 1979 in Palos Verdes, California to Steve and Tina Austin.  Her parents were actors who met on the set of the TV western, “Bonanza.”  Coco has three younger brothers and a younger sister, Kristy who gave Nicole her nickname.  As a small child, Kristy couldn’t pronounce “Nicole” and would say “Cole Cole” or “Co-co” so eventually her family began calling Nicole “Coco.” Her mother introduced Coco to performing when she was six years old and she began doing ballet, jazz and tap dancing.

The Austin family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico when Coco was 10 years old and although she was a tomboy, she also performed in many productions at the Albuquerque Little Theatre.  Coco began modeling when she was 14, specializing in lingerie, swimsuit and body modeling. She also modeled for calendars, catalogs and videos in addition to entering swimsuit competitions. Cocco entered and won the 1998 Miss Ujena contest in Mexico when she was 18 years old.  In 2001 when Coco was 22, she started working for Playboy at their events and parties at the Playboy Mansion. Coco landed in Playboy magazine when she was invited to a New Year’s Eve party at the Playboy Mansion and Hugh Hefner hired her to appear in a feature in the March 2008 issue.

Also in 2001, Coco married Tracy “Ice-T” Marrow on December 31 in Las Vegas. In interviews, they’ve talked about their first meeting and preconceptions each had about the other until they got to know one another better. Ice-T said, “Honestly, I thought she was too pretty to be, as you would say, domesticated. Like, can we fit at home or is this a girl who just wants to party?” Ice-T was surprised to find a hardworking and down-to-earth girl from humble beginnings. He said, “When Coco met me I had on a red snakeskin suit. She thought it was incredible. She loved it.” Coco adds, “And when he met me I was a model wearing a silver sequined top.”  In their initial meeting she told Ice-T she wanted a nice guy and his response is if you take the N out of nice, you get ‘ice.’ 

The loving couple:

When E! Network approached the couple to do a reality series they saw it as an opportunity to showcase Coco’s business acumen to prove that they are an equal, loving couple as opposed to simply being an established celebrity with arm candy. They named their series, “Ice Loves Coco” because of their devotion to one another.  Coco is well aware people underestimate her so the show gave audiences a chance to see what she calls “the true Coco.”  She explains, “This show is what it’s all about. You’re going to see the family side of Coco, the loving side of Coco and the goofy side of Coco. I think that’s the key here. People just see me as a model and as the party girl because the only time paparazzi are out is usually when we go to red carpet events and you’re wearing crazy outfits and going to the after-parties. They don’t see what I do on a normal, regular basis.” Ice-T explained why the reality series ended after two seasons, “We stopped the reality show because after a certain amount of time it loops and people get you. You’ve done everything you do and then you do it over again. After some time you start doing things you normally wouldn’t do – like let’s put Ice on a horse. That’s when it gets corny.” The couple currently live in New Jersey and New York and renewed their vows for their 10th anniversary in a star-studded big event in Los Angeles on June 4, 2011.

Coco’s other TV appearances include “Hip-Hop Wives,” “the Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav,”  “RuPaul’s Drag Race 5,” and on Ice-T’s NBC drama series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”  Coco has acted in several low-budget films such as Southwest Babes (2001), Desert Rose (2002), The Dirty Monks (2004) and Thira (2008).

She also played the lead role of Bo Peep in the Las Vegas revue Peepshow from December 2012 to September 1, 2013.  Going back to her dance roots, Coco is preparing for an off-Broadway burlesque show with dance troupe The Vanity Vixens.

She wrote on Facebook that prefers it to performing in Las Vegas, “No, I wouldn’t do Vegas again. It was just too hard being away from Ice and having the dogs and not knowing what to do with the dogs and just kind of bouncing around. That’s why this new burlesque show in New York, I’m so into it because I don’t have to leave to go anywhere. It’s like heaven. It’s something I really love to do and I really loved doing peep show and being able to dance every single night; that’s my passion.”


In addition to her Playboy spread in 2008, Coco has appeared in several semi-nude pictorials so there are plenty of ways to see her nude.  Clearly not shy, Coco has posed for several magazines in semi-nude outfits and she is also someone who is familiar with the nip slip. 

“With a chest like that, if you paid for it, you got to flaunt it”

Very comfortable with her body, Coco has no problem with nudity saying, “I am a bit of a nudist. You know how nudists are. They’re completely open and free with their bodies.  I do like to show off my assets. I work out hard at the gym so why not show it off?”

Coco in a photo shoot for Smooth Magazine:

Coco has also been honest about getting breast implants, “I wanted to have a little Coke bottle figure, so when I did that it was perfect and I haven’t had any problems since. I’m all for it. For all the women who are all weird about it, I think they should be open. If you have plastic surgery, then you have plastic surgery. It’s just to make you happy. If you don’t have something done that you want to have done, you’re going to be walking around and you’re just going to be unhappy. So just get it done.”  She also denied rumors claiming she also has buttock implants and even submitted herself for an ultrasound on the syndicated TV show, “The Doctors” on February 20, 2012 to prove her butt is all real and all hers.  Clearly, when it comes to Coco Austin nude, there is absolutely no need for photoshopped fakes; she is generous about sharing her body for real nude pictures.
