VIBE caught up with our favorite say-all, do-all duo, Ice-T & Coco, for some quick jabber about their new E! reality show, how to keep your wedlock sex in check, and whether we should judge those with amplified backsides.

From just looking at you guys I'd guess a reality show was coming at some point.
Ice T: (Laughs) We’ve been getting offered reality TB shows for the past 10 years. But, I was very skeptical of it. I didn’t want to risk my relationship doing a reality show because a lot of times it didn’t work out for people. But E! came with a good outline, something simple, made sure that it was going to be positive and the time was right so we just said, ‘Why the hell not?’ We’re very happy with the outcome. The shows are fun, not train-wreck television though.

How about you Coco? Did you have any doubts at all or did you say, 'Hell yes,' I want to jump on?
Coco: No, we’ve been against it for quite some time because when reality shows first came out, it was all about drama and throwing coffee in each other’s faces and fighting and all that crazy stuff so we weren’t about that. So we just no for a long time until they said, this is not going to be that type of show. We’re actually breaking a trend here. This is going to be the first reality show where you’re not going to see any fighting. It’s all comedy, family and love.

Ice T: Kinda like…if there have been any shows that have been similar, yeah the Osbornes, Run’s House, stuff like that.

Okay, gotcha. I think people want your life to be a sex circus, but in fact you guys have your hands in a lot of business deals, right?
Ice T: Yeah, the show is more about the hustle, it’s more about what my life entails day to day, what Coco’s life entails and how she runs it and how she operates and bounce—you know, it’s not shoe shopping all day long, it’s like you got to work,work,work,work,work and then you have a break and then somebody takes a picture of you and then they go 'Oh that’s your life,' the picture, not the work.

True. But really now, how can I have a marriage that comes with a sex circus of a love life?
Ice T: Marry somebody that turns you the fuck on.

Coco: Don’t think that you’re going to turn them into some sexual demon when you get married. They have to already be the sexual demon beforehand.

Ice T: But wait for your ultimate sexual partner, try that one. That’s a good start. If you start with that and keep that alive, hopefully the person isn’t an idiot and shit doesn’t go wrong. One of the things that help messes up a sex life is just basic stress in the relationship though. If you have a stressful relationship there‘s not going to be sex.

Duly noted. People think you have to try all these crazy things after some years in marriage just to keep it exciting or is it all mental games?

Ice T: You do. That’s part of the fun... trying things out.

Coco: Trying things out. And you don’t have to do it a second time. You just try it once to see if you two connect on that same level. And if it does, your sex life just becomes spicier.

Ice T: It takes you to another level. Trying new things. There’s nothing wrong with it. Some you don’t do on a date. When you’re on a date, you’re doing one count. Now when you’re in you can say, “Well damn, I always wanted to try this” or “I never thought about this” So maybe I can bring this up.

That makes sense. Now Coco you're very open about your breast implants, but have an all natural rear. How do you feel about chicks getting more butt jobs than boobs?

That makes sense. Now Coco you're very open about your breast implants, but have an all natural rear. How do you feel about chicks getting more butt jobs than boobs?
Coco: I think you should be open to the fact if you’re trying something or if you’re thinking about getting that procedure done to make you happy. I think I’m all for it. I’m an open book and I already have boob implants, so what’s the deal there. I think it’s a new day in age. Now it’s a trend to get something done to your body. It’s out in the open, it’s not hush/hush, so you shouldn’t be afraid to say it. I really support the fact that it’s your body, do whatever you want with it because you live this life and you’re sort of unhappy about things. So if the body part is bothering you, why not fix it if you have the time and the money.

Ice T: And from a guy’s perspective, you have to remember that anything that you do to yourself to make you look good, hopefully also feels good. I remember there was a point in time where guys were like okay girls have boob implants but you would touch them and it would be a strange thing. Now guys touch so many boob implants they’re used to it. But now when you start, adding ass implants, butt implants…

Coco: I want to force my opinion there. Like I said, I’m not against plastic surgery but me going through surgery, I know what it feels like. And I’m kind of against the fact that you should get butt implants because one thing that you’re missing out here, is that when you have boobs, you’re not sitting on you boobs 24-7, when you get butt implants, you’re sitting on your butt for most of the day.  You have to think about that. I’m so worried about how I move my boobs here and there. I have to wear a sports bra when I go to the gym. You can’t jiggle all the time, you might jiggle them out of place. Think about that as far as the butt thing goes because they may jiggle out of place and you might not be able to fix it. I hear some really horror stories about the booty thing and I know I might sound hypocritical to do your boobs and not your butt. But, it’s so unnatural. I mean you’re not touching the chest area all that much, you’re not walking all on the chest area all that much. You do a lot with the butt.

Ice T: Yeah I do a lot with the butt (laughs).

Premiere: Inayah Lamis Busts The Windows Out Of Toxic Love In Visuals For "Best Thing"

Breakups are never easy but let Inayah Lamis heal your heart with her cheeky video for "Best Thing." Inspired by true events, the Houston native sings about bitter feelings about love gone astray.

The emotional ballad is simple in production thanks to the presence of an acoustic guitar, allowing Lamis to show off her vocal chops. Reminiscent of 2000s R&B gems like "I Wished You Loved Me" by Tynisha Keli and recent classics like Tink's "Treat Me Like Somebody," Lamis finds the right words that almost anyone can relate to.

"The track “Best Thing” was birthed from a realtime heartbreak," she tells VIBE. "I went into the lab and wrote it while I was ending a relationship that had a strong hold over me. I literally cried in the booth as I was singing it. My hopes are that every woman or man that has been emotionally broken and taken for granted by a lover will feel comfort in knowing that leaving was the best thing they ever did for themselves."

Thanks to her around the way aura, the video plays off her personality with the presence of "Smakie Lamis" taking Lamis out of her sad girl feels over her deceitful partner, allowing her to hop in the whip and bust out some car windows–even if it's not her beau's car. Directed by Michelle Parker, the video also plays up Lamis' Houston swag as she rides around town in a candy green whip.

The budding singer knows how important her songwriting plays a role in her relationship with fans. Lamis previously shared a bit of her writing style with Refinery29, while opening up about the importance of body positivity.

"Anytime something impacts my life, I write it down and make a song out of it," she said. In her previous visuals for "Suga Daddy," the singer turned up the sexy for a good reason. "I've displayed my confidence as a chunky girl in this video. So many people have things to say about curvy, bigger girls. I feel like we're in a space now where we're able to finally have a voice and be free, and still be sexy. Particularly with the wardrobe, I wanted to show some skin, to show those curves, those back rolls, those fat little pockets I got underneath my chin and shit. I wanted to make sure I displayed that and rocked the hell out of it, confidently."

Lamis is gearing up to release her debut EP S.O.L.A.R. (Storytelling Over Lyrics and Rhymes) on Dec. 13. The singer hopes to share more stories her fans will appreciate and the masses will adore. Her come-up is a digital grassroots movement thanks to her remake of Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" in 2018 leading to her debut studio single  "N.A.S.," an acronym for "Ni**as ain't S**t."

Whitney Houston's Close Friend Robyn Crawford Details Romantic Relationship In New Memoir

Whitney Houston's personal life has been explored ten times over since her untimely passing in 2012 but one of her closest friends wants to share with the world the Whitney she knew and ultimately fell in love with.

In excerpts to People Wednesday (Nov. 6), Robyn Crawford presents a strong bond between the two in her new memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. The singer and Crawford met in their youth while working at a summer camp in East Orange, New Jersey. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more romantic. With homophobia running rampant in the 80s, Crawford says they never looked at labels but enjoyed the experiences they shared together.

“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay,” writes Crawford. “We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

As their journey continued, Whitney's star began to rise which put allegedly put their romance on ice. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore,” writes Crawford. "Because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us....and back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt. I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.”

Whitney's relationship with Crawford was mentioned in the 2018 documentary Whitney. Created by the singer's estate, the film focused on the singer's legacy and didn't include first-hand accounts from Crawford. Family members were weary of their special friendship.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary.

But Crawford is finally ready to tell her own story while "lifting" Houston's legacy.

“I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” she tells People. "I'd come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent."

A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston is expected to hit bookshelves this fall.
