Coco is submissive to Ice-T: ‘I think all women should do it, I’m a slave to him’


Ice-T and Coco have been getting a lot of press this month because they have a new talk show, plus they keep talking about their pregnancy and marriage. Just know: I love Ice and Coco. I’m not even apologizing. I think they’re a great couple and I totally watched most of their old E! show, Ice Loves Coco. I’m saying that because… I’m familiar with their deal. Coco is very subservient to Ice, not really in a creepy Duggar way, but more of a “I love taking care of my man, he’s my king!” sort of way. For his part, Ice completely and totally supports Coco’s career and it really does seem like she drives their dynamic. As in, he doesn’t demand that she drop everything to fix him a sandwich, you know? She makes him a sandwich without asking and then goes on with her business. So… keep that in mind when you read these quotes from their appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

Coco loves being submissive to Ice: “I think all women should do it. I’m a slave to him. It has been 15 years and it has worked out.”

Ice’s response: “By her choice. She likes that. She’s into that.”

Coco is really pregnant: “People think I am having a surrogate because there is nothing there, but it is there, guys! There is a lump there. See…,” she said, while turning to her side.

Coco is not too posh to push: The model also said she won’t be having a C-section, either, opting for the regular “push method.”

Whether Ice will give Coco a push present: “I’m not into push presents. I think that push presents are something rich people made up. Black people don’t know nothing about no push presents. The baby is the present you should be happy with the baby.”

Baby names by Coco: “Actually we came up with two names — a guy’s name and a girl’s name — 10 years ago so we already had it planned,” Coco revealed, noting that the boy’s name was Titan. “I didn’t want to name her Coco because I feel like that’s giving her too much of my identity. So I was like let’s go close to Coco and we’ll name her Chanel.”

Whether Kim Kardashian & Nicki Minaj have fake butts: “You know what, people ask me this all the time. You can’t ask me that because everyone always thinks my booty’s fake. Theirs are probably real. So I’m just going to go with they’re both real. I hate when people think that mine is fake so they probably have the same problem too.”

[From E! News and Us Weekly]

If you’re happily married and you love being submissive to your husband, God bless. I don’t care as long as you are the one making that choice for yourself, and you are doing something that makes you happy. What I don’t get is why Coco says “I think all women should do it.” NO THEY SHOULDN’T. All women should make their owns choices about what dynamic works best in their marriage. If it works for Ice and Coco, great. But I think it works for them because Ice completely supports HER CHOICES in life, career, etc.

    Not my thing.. but it seems to work for them.
    Why would I get upset or anyone else. .

    • blue marie says:

      Same here.. I really do like them two..

    • AcidRock says:

      I agree totally. It’s just so weird that this same kind of attitude (“it works for them, and I don’t have to agree with it but I’m also not upset about it”) could be so forthcoming in general whenever it’s a celeb talking about breastfeeding versus not, or whether she feels motherhood is the be-all, end-all reason she was put on this earth, etc. And in those cases, the celeb doesn’t even qualify the statement with “this is how all women should feel” as Coco does here, and people still lose their sh*t, haha

    • pinetree13 says:

      PEOPLE she is saying this WHILE HAVING SERVANTS! How fast do you think her tune would change if tomorrow her servants were gone and she suddenly had to break her nails doing all the manual labour of maintaining a house/lawn while her husband sat back and drank a scotch? Yep, easy to harp about being submissive to your man when that doesn’t entail the normal domestic duties a woman would be burdened with in such an arrangement.

  3. paola says:

    Uhm Coco..

  4. DanaG says:

    I think it’s great she is having another baby and I say another because I’m sure I read years ago she had a little girl to her first husband and she got taken off her years ago. That would be a good story to get an update on. I think she will be a lovely mum and I get what she says she is submissive by choice and hey they have been together 15 years so it works for them but he also respects her and doesn’t abuse it. Wouldn’t work with me but hey to each his own.

  5. Lindy79 says:

    Like you said, good for them if it works but don’t tell other women how to live.

  6. Kiddo says:

    Because women take advice from Coco, a woman I’ve only heard about on here, who I only know because she married Ice Tea. What more credentials do you need?

    • Lindy79 says:

      Dead at “Ice Tea”

      • Kiddo says:

        That’s really who he is now, though. Kind of a watered down version of his former self? Don’t dislike like him, but don’t care about reality show nonsense. It’s a product that comes in a box, steeped at a gentler dilution.

      • Livealot says:


      • MC2 says:

        Kiddo- hilarious! He is water downed version with some simple syrup & a pretty lemon wedge on the side.

    • truthSF says:

      Hahahaha @ Ice Tea!!!

    • Someone says:

      Thankyou Kiddo for that laugh. I have honestly been having a so far terrible morning and I needed this more than anything else. iced tea LOL. You are the real MVP, my friend

  7. boredblond says:

    I don’t know anything about them..but I don’t know how she can stand upright..

    • Lostara says:

      I never heard of them. But that woman looks like some plastic surgeries went wrong (and much to big fake boobs). That, and “all women should do” makes me dislike her without even knowing her.

  8. Franca says:

    She worded it badly, but it seems to be working for them. And I like that he said it was her choice. They seem to have a loving, healthy relationship.

    Having said that, it would never ever work for me.

    • LadyMTL says:

      Yeah, I don’t like her use of the word slave like…at all, but if it is her choice and works for her then who am I to judge how they live their day-to-day? I mean, she isn’t exactly Michelle Duggar, thankfully.

      • BarkingMad says:

        I agree LadyMTL. It seems to be just a poor choice of words – slave, submissive… they do sound demeaning. Perhaps she’s more caring, considerate and nurturing, spoiling him a bit?

  9. mememe says:

    Remove “every woman” and this interview is cute.

    Wtf is a “push present?” I’ve never heard of that before. A gift to the mom for her hard work? The baby is the ultimate present!

    The baby names are okay – not good, not bad. I was thinking something more beveragey, like Iced Mocha or Frappacino.

    • crab says:

      I’ve never heard of a “push present” either and I’m white!

      • Livealot says:

        Maybe because I aspire to be a part of the “rich and famous” lifestyle is why I know what a push present is. #sorrynotsorry. Lol.

    • Amberica says:

      It’s a present for the mom. Like a thank you from the dad. I’m white, middle class, and did not get one. Course, my son is almost 9, and I don’t think it became a thing until a few years ago. But we’re also not big gift people. Not our love language.

    • Wren says:

      No kidding. If she likes it, that’s her thing. But it’s hardly for “every woman”.

      I’d never heard of a “push present” until Jessica Simpson went rambling on about how her dude better get her diamonds or something like that. Um, you gave birth, that’s kinda the idea of being pregnant, that’s what you signed up for here. To me it trivializes the whole thing into “hey I did this thing that would have happened anyway, where’s my cookie?!” But I’ve never had a kid so what do I know.

      • EN says:

        Omg, this sounds so demeaning like the woman is a cow and the husband is a farmer.
        I think people do give presents once a child is born, but it is a celebration, not for the fact of pushing. This is just so gross and rude.

      • EllenAJ28 says:

        The hospital I gave birth in did come by and give me a cookie…it was glorious

    • IfUSaySo says:

      I got diamond earrings after I gave birth, I don’t care what anyone thinks or calls it. After a tough pregnancy and birth it was nice to feel pampered by my husband and the earrings made me feel beautiful in the midst of childbirth recovering and learning to breastfeed.

      “The baby is present enough!” Yes, true! But the baby is a present for everyone and the mama grew it and endured whatever painful method got it out of her body. If your husband thinks to get you flowers, a gift, even just a special handwritten card to express his gratitude that you went through this for your family( even though you chose it willingly and even though you’d do it again in a heartbeat. If my husband went through a damn CSECTION, I’d happily pick out something that I know would make him smile) That’s beautiful.
      Bye bye haterz.

      • Bridget says:

        Did you seriously just say “haterz”?

      • waitwhat says:

        Pregnancy is HARD and post-partum recovery is harder, while raising the child is the HARDEST job that s still mostly a woman’s responsibility. I better get some sort of thanks for these stretch marks and sleepless nights!

      • mememe says:

        It’s always nice to hear different opinions. Didn’t see any “hating” going in. The rest of your post was lovely.

    • lucy2 says:

      I hate that term “push present”! I think if a husband/partner really wants to give the mom a gift, that’s nice, but it’s turned into women competing as to who got the most expensive jewelry, biggest ring, blah blah, and expecting something.

      • IfUSaySo says:

        Yes, I said haterz. R U ONE?

        waitwhat- agree! And its not like moms want a weekly push present or stipend to go off to a spa day every month. It’s like one sweet little gesture from your husband while you sit on an inflatable donut pillow and bleed from the vag for 3 weeks..

        lucy2- Totally should not be a competition. I never bragged or spoke about my gift. That’s just gross. It’s a sweet thing between you and your hubs. Don’t involve the neighborhood.. ya know?!

    • o_o_odesa says:

      Mememe- I too was waiting for something beverage related. Perhaps Ovaltine?

    • K says:

      It’s a gift your husband or child’s father gives you after you give birth. Ie pushed out the baby

    • Bonnie says:

      My push present was the ice pack the hospital gave me for my vadge that felt like it was on fire, the ten foot long maxi pads, and sexy mesh underwear.

  10. Tiffany27 says:

    Not today Satan.

  11. Kate says:

    Am I crazy for thinking her butt’s real (or at least mostly real, maybe a lift but no implants/added fat)? Unlike the Kardashians and Nikki, Coco’s thighs seem to match her butt. She has a cartoonish shape because of her waist and breast implants, but her bottom half seems balanced.

    • Jayna says:

      You are crazy. LOL She had a bum, but nothing close to what she has now. I don’t know why she won’t admit it.

    • Anna says:

      Coco and Ice T are my celebrity couple crush. I just love them and find them really refreshing. As for Coco’s bum, check out her twitter where she posted a cute acrobatic shot of her and her sister in her shoe closet. You can see that they are *really* similar in build but Coco is more built, as if she exercises more. Given the show she just did in Vegas and her big media lifestyle, I would guess that her natural curves would be accentuated by her active and athletic lifestyle. I vote real. Does anyone remember that one scene from Ice Loves Coco when she jumped across their dining room table and put him in a headlock with her thighs? Crazy agile. Love them.

      And as for her and Ice T’s relationship, that’s actually my dream to someday meet a man who is honorable enough to engage with in that way. I think it’s really beautiful and consensual. But this kind of thing always gets flack because people don’t understand what a *healthy* submissive-dominant relationship really is; they think it is just an excuse for male abusiveness and female victimization. A few years ago Gaby Reese the pro volleyball player wrote a memoir and talked about the same kind of relationship with her husband and was villified for it. Too bad so few people really understand the beauty of a relationship like this…

  12. Toot says:

    Can’t stand ice-t. He’s is/was a pimp and he found the perfect wife for himself.

    • Aren says:

      This is what bothered me.
      I saw a documentary on sex slavery, pimps do have a way to make insecure and fragile girls like they are their only saviours.
      The girls will tell you the pimp is the best thing that happened to them because he buys them clothes, he takes them to the hair salon, and he even massages their feet after a night of work. These girls don’t realize that he bought those things with the money they earned for having sex with several strangers during the night, and that the cars, gold chains and suits he has, are also bought with that money.

      If it’s true what’s said about CoCo and Ice T, that’s a very sad and hopeless thing to say, not romantic at all.
      I wonder if she’s going to allow Ice T to pimp their daughter as well.

      • BarkingMad says:

        What?? I made a general comment upthread, not knowing who this lady is, apart from his wife. I’ve seen the same types of documentaries, Aren, and now I need to Googlise to find out who Coco is.

    • aenflex says:

      I am ashamed to admit it, but I watched the Ice loves Coco reality show that was on TV about 10 years ago? Sad. Anyway, at least during that show, Ice and Coco seem to have a pretty solid relationship, albeit strange. He did not treat her badly, nor did he behave like a pimp. I felt they had a genuine connection and honestly it seemed pretty equal to me as far as the marriage is concerned.
      Also, Coco seems to have a pretty strong personality. And she cheated on him and he forgave her, I believe? In my opinion that’s not very pimp-like behavior.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Why would you call him a pimp? Unless you know something with credence from his past, that’s a really inappropriate title for a guy whose wife willingly babies him. Coco does what Coco wants and she can be as submissive acting as she wants, but there’s not doubt, she gets her way about everything. She just lets him think he’s the boss but I don’t beleive for a moment that that woman is manipulated by anyone.

      I don’t get why it’s so hard for some people to beleive that some couples are happy in traditional roles. I think there is a stigma regarding allowing a husband to make final decisions based on his family and wife’s best interests. I also don’t understand how an obviously happy couple is vilified by people who are determined to make something out of nothing. I’m willing to bet he bends over backwards for her. He has always worshipped her. It is a balance and it works for them. Just because you might feel threatened or degraded at the prospect of yeilding to a spouse on certain subjects or decisions, doesn’t mean Coco is being degraded at all. Not caring for the word pimp – it’s inaccurate and unfair.

      • MC2 says:

        +1- I had an assignment once for a women’s studies class in college about interviewing a woman about their life & gender roles. I interviewed my future mother-in-law who had a masters degree, was an amazing nurse & enjoyed the typical female roles in the house. Her husband enjoyed the typical male roles (he was also a very hands on father). I wrote about how it was her CHOICE (this makes all the difference) & they both worked but split up the household duties in a typically gendered way. I got a D on that assignment for not “paying attention to the fact that she was subservient & pushed into gender norms”. Trust me- just because she liked to cook & he liked to saw things didn’t mean she wasn’t a strong a&$ woman who was just as respected in her home as her husband. In fact her voice was louder & had more push IMO. That’s the deal- if a woman does things by choice, free will, with access to other choices & is respected I don’t care or judge what she does. That’s feminism to me- access, choice & equality treatment.

      • Toot says:

        My dislike and naming him a pimp has nothing to do with “feminism”. He’a a self admitted proud to be pimp. Talking on his views below. This was only 7 years ago. (Not safe for work)

    • alexia says:

      @ MC2:
      Well, liberal feminism is a dead end! If we always come up with the CHOICE argument, like you also did, we won’t achieve anything. If we argue, “it was her choice” we neglect the fact that we all grew up in a mysoginistic society, and adopted those values ourselves without even questioning them once. At the end, we life up to those values and even think they empower us (because this is what men say).
      It is not choice, to alter your body with plastic sugery; it is not choice, to dress like a sl***; it is not choice, to always try to please the male gaze. It is what they tell us we should to to be more liked.

  13. K says:

    If it’s her choice and it works for them ok, but no thank you personally.

    • Trillion says:

      I don’t like it when people try to push their own thing onto others like that. I would never play that role to my husband and you know what? He’d never be attracted to a woman who did. He’s like women to be strong and assertive and I love him to pieces for it.

  14. Ronda says:

    I dont think stepping out on your man is being submissive to his wishes. All that points way more in the direction that their arrangement is that he can play Mr Alpha in public with the submissive wife and in reality she is actually pulling the string and is in control.

  15. Naddie says:

    Bizarre couple. And save your advice to yourself, woman.

  16. lw says:

    Ice T was a known pimp. He didn’t pretend to be a pimp because it went with his rap persona. He was an actual pimp for over 20 years. I’ve heard that he only stopped when he got SVU.
    I’m not sure why he gets a pass on that now. Perfect show biz couple. He made her famous. She made him more money.

    • Kiddo says:

      I kind of agree with you, although I believe in second chances, these two are as scripted as the rest, for easy digestion.

    • KellyBee says:

      That is true and at one point he was teaching his son how to be a pimp. That’s his idea that women are less then men.

    • Naddie says:

      I didn’t want to say, but it’s in their faces, I mean, just look at this woman and this man. Glad you pointed it out, now I don’t feel so mean.

    • Aren says:

      I just mentioned something about this before seeing your comment.
      That’s absolutely atrocious and I have no respect for him anymore.

      If he pimped her it’s not “her choice” to say she liked being submissive, it’s what he molded her to be.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I had to read up on this and from what I gathered, he claims he used to be a pimp and a jewel theif until he got in a bad car accident. He ended his life of crime and pursued a career in rap music. It was way before Coco and he doesn’t condone what he did before. He gave up a life of crime and tried to steer himself in a different direction. I have to chew on all this for a while. I was unaware and am now shocked. Not sure how I feel about this. He left it, but he did it. Would he have stopped if he hadn’t gotten in that accident?

      On a side note: how ironic is it that on Law & Order: SVU he is advocating for victims of sexual crimes, underage prostitution, sex slavery, etc.?

      • Neah23 says:

        I’m not sure of how he is now but like Neah23 said he was teaching his son how to be a pimp and treated his sons mother like she was beneath him. He was very public about it that I’m surprised more people didn’t know.

  17. Amy Tennant says:

    Yeah, same as everyone here has said: great if it works for you, it’s your business, but don’t tell other women to do it. Actually, what she said is everyone should do it, which is maybe not as bad. I have ideas as to what people should do, too. That doesn’t mean I am in any position to tell them what to do, but I might make the comment that they should. I disagree with Coco, of course, but I’m not deeply offended by what she said. What does offend me is her pronouncement that she’s going to have a vaginal birth. Yeah, that’s your plan, but it doesn’t always work out the way you planned.

  18. Jess says:

    I also love them as a couple and have no shame about it, they work and are adorable together:) I also agree that every woman should be able to make her own choices in her relationship, whatever makes you comfortable and happy. I tend to be a people pleaser and care giver so I can understand what she’s saying, but the second someone demands I do anything they get the finger!

  19. Wonderbunny says:

    I have a soft spot for her for some weird reason, so I’m going to be a bit of an apologist.

    I think she meant “every woman should do it” in the same way as some people say “everyone should be on the paleo diet” or “everyone should go to church”. People are like that. When something is working for you and it makes you happy, you think that everyone else should do the same thing in order to be happy.

    As long as people aren’t being pushy about their beliefs, I’m not taking the “everyone should” comments too seriously.

  20. WinonaRyder says:

    I worry about the effect this would have on their kids. Wouldn’t they expect their spouses to behave the same way when they grow up? I find this to be completely archaic.

  21. INeedANap says:

    Since she is choosing to play the submissive happy wife, and he goes along with it for her sake, doesn’t that make her the dominant one?

  22. Grace says:

    why do large chested women wear skin tight high neck tops/dresses? They look like stuffed turkeys.

    I never heard of this woman… i know him but i don’t know from where… did he used to host a car revamp show?

    • DarkSparkle says:

      I think you’re thinking of Xibit with the car show. Ice T was a rapper in the 80’s and early 90’s, made the switch to acting, did a few movies, and has been on Lawn and Order SVU for like 15 years.

  23. Isa says:

    I know a few women that have to do everything such as the childcare, the housework, holding down a job, and it would make me very bitter to live that life. That’s not to say I don’t do nice things for my husband, but I want to have a partner not a master.
    I don’t watch the show but I imagine her life is a lot different and making her husband a sandwich is pretty much all she has to do, right?
    I hope she can have the birth that she wants. I’m glad she realizes that csections aren’t necessarily the easy way out.

    • pinetree13 says:

      EXACTLY! Easy to harp on about a submissive lifestyle when you don’t have to be the one scrubbing the floors, cleaning the toilets, doing the laundry, mowing the lawn, etc. How quick her tune would change if tomorrow her servants were gone. Ridiculous.

      Also, I know this is mean but he used to be a PIMP and not a nice person so I feel less bad…but I find Ice-T to be repulsive physically. Like you’d be hard pressed to find a more unattractive celebrity in my opinion. Shudder.

  24. bored mom says:

    She seems to have very set ideas on how she likes things around the house, and was seemingly cleaning almost compulsively on their show. I think this is a route of having her universe her way, in a way that is ordered to her liking. I also would guess it’s a little of the top from bottom concept.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      That’s what I think. She let’s him think he’s the boss because she plays submissive and babies him, but no doubt, she is in control. I don’t beleive he degrades her or that she would allow herself to be degraded. If anything, her babying him is manipulative as it appeases him so he let’s her run the show.

  25. Delta Juliet says:

    I wouldn’t have a problem behaving that way if it was appreciated and reciprocated. But not everyone is married to a giver. If I started waiting on my husband hand and foot more than I do already he would just expect it and do even less. So, no thanks Coco.

  26. OSTONE says:

    Thank God my husband is not like that. We both make each other sandwiches and we both clean and have chores around the house. He did not marry a maid nor is he handicapped to not do anything. I do have friends with MBAs, a full time job etc and their hubby still expects them to be submissive and make them a sandwich because the husband is the “leader” of the family. Yeah, that sh*t wouldn’t work here haha.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      All this sandwich talk is funny. I assume she simply means she cooks and cleans and is passive in bed. Since they can afford maids and cooks, I’m guessing she doesn’t really do alot in that area. To me, it’s really more about the bedroom. Sure, she makes him sandwhich once in a while. I make my husband a sandwhich once in a while. He cooks and does stuff for me too. I admit I probably do cook more than he does, but he does the lawn, garbage, and everyother handy-man task re the house and property, none of which I do. He fills my car with gas every weekend and washes my truck. He leaves me a $20 bill on the counter every Monday morning. I could do those things for myself, but he likes to do it. I like that he does it. Does that make me submissive? I dont’ really think so. Somewhat traditional, but if anything, I am the one who is babied. If you’re both givers, it can work fine.

  27. KellyBee says:

    I find it funny that if another women said this they would be torn to shreds but since it Coco there are comments like it’s okay and their a cute couple.

    • Aren says:

      It’s because Coco comes across as super sweet and not “I’m better than you”.

      Still, it’s awful what that pimp (Ice T) did to her self-image and confidence.

      • teehee says:

        Probably because it is by her own choice and not some strange far right agenda… private choice its ok, and if they are actually happy (apparently they are) then who can be upset. Actually, that fits for me too. It is a balance of being a very strong woman, but still expecting a man to be “the man” nd be stronger than you— but only in certain departments 😉 I want my cake and to eat it, too— so this is also the constellation that works for me. trust me, it is a rare gift to finally have, and I can understand why they are happy to have it– but no, this certainly cant be applied to all women at all. Oh, coco– just cos YOURE happy…. lol 🙂

    Nope, I can’t with these 2.

  30. nene says:

    I really don’t understand what she means by being submissive. Is it submissive as in that of the bible where a woman should submit to her husband and husband should love their wife or submissive as in the lifestyle?

    • FingerBinger says:

      She means submissive in every sense of the word. Sex when he wants. Food when he wants. No complaining or nagging.

  31. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    I’m not going to take this too seriously because as someone who is unmarried myself, I can only speak to what I’ve seen from my family and friends. I know people who have husbands who are more “self-sufficient,” and I also know many people who are more submissive to their husbands.

    I agree with other posters that every relationship is different and each couple knows what works for them. I don’t think her choice to use the word “slave” was the best, but I’m sure she didn’t actually mean that literally, and Ice-T made it a point to note that it was her choice, not something he personally expects.

    • Sparkly says:

      Pretty sure she means a bdsm slave, and, yes, it’s a real thing. (And, yes, it’s consensual.)

      • FingerBinger says:

        Pretty sure that’s not what she meant. I think she meant she rubs his feet and makes him a sandwich.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Let’s hope she washes her hands after rubbing his feet and before making him a sandwich. All the sandwich references are cracking me up. Now I’m hungy. Ordering Jimmy Johns. Thanks alot.

        I’m 100% sure that’s what she meant, and his response confirms it.

    • EN says:

      THe only thing I for from that exchange is that he husband is a smart guy and she is an air- head.

    I’m quite into bdsm myself, but NO, not “all women should do it”. She seems extremely ignorant about her own kink saying things like that.

    • teehee says:

      Well submissive is not automatically BDSM, but I am sure you know this more than anyone. There are… I dunno, 50 shades? Nifty shades of beige? I think she is just a bit simple minded. 😉

      • Sparkly says:

        Declaring oneself a happy slave is generally pretty obvious bdsm.

        50 Shades…blech. Neither that nor Coco is doing the lifestyle any favors.

    My husband brings me coffee in bed every morning, and I make him fresh squeezed orange juice when I get up. That’s the way I like it. Maybe I’m not as giving as she is, but I like to receive as well as give. Whatever works.

    The idea that some people think that C- section is an easier birth method and willingly choose one is so foreign to me. The consequences of a C- section are for life. Just mind- boggling.
    Nobody is too posh to push, if you have money then best spend it on best birth attendants to make sure that you don’t end up with a C- section.

    • IfUSaySo says:

      It’s very strange that people think c-sections are the “easier choice.” I would have LOVED a vaginal birth and while I’m not stressing over my prior c-section I wish I didn’t have to have it. My subsequent pregnancy is a bit more stressful because of it.

      That being said, I had fabulous docs, nurses, attendants and support people during my prior labor and birth and there is truly no way to “make sure” you don’t end up with a c-section. Sometimes no matter what you do, it is necessary to save lives.

      • EN says:

        You are right, bad wording on my part. You can’t make sure you don’t get one, all you can do is just have supportive and professional stuff who respect your wishes and balance it with the realities of the situation.
        Here in the US too many doctors are too quick to push C- section because of fear of liabilities if they wait too long and something happens. This is why my wording came out the way it did.

  36. IfUSaySo says:

    “She will not be having a c-section” “She is not too posh to push”

    Who wrote that?! That’s pretty nasty. No one knows if she will have a c-section until she goes into labor, people don’t always get to choose to have a vaginal birth and things can go wrong.

    I didn’t plan on a c section either, and guess what? I wasn’t too posh to push.. I pushed for 3 damn hours (awful misery) and then still needed a c-section (more awful misery). But DONT FORGET.. c-section moms are lazy and don’t care about their kids’ health. C-section feel good, they are easy and pleasant experiences.. *barf*

    • EN says:

      I completely agree with you. That whole passage was so offensive and stupid ( sorry but it was).

  37. Angie says:

    If catering to her husband makes her happy and that’s her choice then good for her. It’s on her terms and she enjoys it but please don’t suggest that all women must do the same. I personally have more important things to do then make sure my man is fed and taken care of; he is not a toddler nor my child, he can take care of his damn self.

    • Snowflake says:

      That’s how I feel. But my husband acts like I don’t care about him because I’m not concerned with that stuff.

    Different strokes, etc. They don’t seem to be members of any fundamentalist brainwashing cult, so if it works for them, fine. Not my style or preference, though.

  39. pinetree13 says:

    Pretty stupid of her to suggest all women do the same when all women don’t have the same SERVANTS that she has! Yeah, it must be exhausting telling the maid and gardener what to do all day…

    …I wonder how long this life style choice would last if she suddenly had to wash those floors, mow that lawn and bust a nail doing the entire domestic burden as she so nicely suggests all women do.

    My dad gave my mom 2 rings each, one after I was born and one after my sister was born. When we were little my mom told us we would each inherit the rings someday–I think mine was a sapphire blue and my sister’s was some kind if aquamarine stone. I used to be jealous of my sister’s ring because I preferred the lighter blue haha! Now I’m fine with navy blue. I never realized until now that these were considered “push presents” (also pretty sure that term didn’t exist in the 80s). I think it was a sweet gesture of my dad to my mom and the fact we will both inherit them someday is symbolic. Call it what you want, I call it a father overjoyed at having two daughters and being grateful to his wife for giving him two precious gifts. Also Mom didn’t have to push long anyways–in labor for 6 hours with me and less than 4 hours with my sister.

  41. iheartgossip says:

    Well she for sure is now; after cheating on him. I’m sure it’s the only way he’d take her back.

    P.s., I would take these two all day over the Kardashians!
