Report: Ice-T and wife planning 'Beauty in The Beast' reality show

By Christopher Rocchio, 07/02/2007 

Rapper Ice-T is a veteran of scripted television, and now he's apparently ready to dish out some relationship advice with the help of his wife via the reality realm.

Tracy "Ice-T" Marrow and his wife Nicole "Coco" Austin are currently developing a new reality show based on their life titled Beauty in the Beast, the reported Thursday, adding a pilot is scheduled to be filmed next month. 

The show would focus on the couple's relationship, according to, while at the same time offering advice from both Ice-T and Coco, who married in 2004.

"Some women just have a knack for wanting the most rowdiest men," Ice-T told "There's a way to get us. If you got a pitbull, as long as you feed it and take care of it, that pitbull is gonna lick your hand. So when someone says, 'Yo coco, Ice is a pitbull, she can say, Yeah, but he's my pitbull.'"... People asked Coco, 'Well damn, why did you step to this kind of character like that?'  But I was impressed she had the balls to come at a cat like me."

Coco told that "being with Ice-T is a 24-hour job," making her life with him a natural fit for a reality television show.  The model added that the premise for Beauty in the Beast was born out of her "quest to find a perfect match."

"I needed that challenge. I just wanted a real guy, not one of those nerdy, dorky men," Coco told "I just wanted a real guy with some swagger. It's been seven years now."

The 49-year-old Ice-T is known for aiding the popularity of "gangsta rap" in the early 1990s -- but has also appeared in several films including New Jack City and The Heist  -- as well as a starring role in NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Odafin "Fin" Tutuola since 2000.  Ice-T told he "does not intend" for Beauty in the Beast to disrupt him from working on his Law & Order role.

"Nine years on Law & Order, who would have thought?  I [originally] went on the show to do four episodes," Ice-T told "I just thank god, because I am on NBC. And for a brother to be on NBC, that's not no bulls**t acting right there. I am dealing with Academy Award winners. Hopefully when [Law & Order] comes to an end, I'll be able to direct. I will have been school enough that I can take it to that next level to direct, produce and maybe write. Expand. Right now I feel like I am in college. I'm on one of the best TV shows ever."

Beauty in the Beast's concept is also being planned as a book, according to
