Everyone, celebrity or not, knows that social media can be filled with negativity and hate, but for once Coco has seen some of the positivity that can come from it.
Soon after her and Ice-T welcomed baby Chanel into their lives, the proud parents set up a Twitter and Instagram account where they could post adorable photos and hilarious commentary—from Chanel’s point of view. While that could be a dicey decision, Coco tells E! News exclusively that those accounts have brought nothing but joy to their lives even if the new mom still gets shamed on her pages.
“I don’t think I’ll ever get away from the negativity. I noticed that on Chanel’s page, there has not been one hater on her page. On her Instagram, it’s all Chanel lovers,” Coco dished. “What I’ve noticed on my page is that I’m the one with haters. I’m the one that people want to get on. It’s nice to go to a page and have not one negative thing on there. I didn’t know it was out there, but she’s now up to 400,000 followers and knowing that they are all lovers, it makes me believe that there’s hope for humanity.”
And to those who refuse to let up on the criticism, Coco basically says whatever. “I’m never not going to get hate. Some people are going to like the clothes I wear, some people aren’t. Some people are going to like me blonde, some will like me brunette. I dress Chanel up—some people are going to hate it,” she explained. “I’m just living the way I feel is me and if I wasn’t in the spotlight, all these people would say, ‘What happened to Coco? Why isn’t she in the spotlight? Why isn’t she doing this?'”
She continued, “I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t. I can never make everyone happy so I’m just going to move on.”
The Ice Loves Coco star also shared how much Coco has added to their lives…and their daily routines! Before Chanel was born, Coco would go to set with her hubby every day for as long as he was there, but now, she said, she will only go a couple of times a week because there are things she has to do at home with their little bundle of joy.
“Working together works for us because Chanel is a really chill baby. She hasn’t adjusted our life at all. She pretty much fell in our schedule and we haven’t redone anything in our life,” she shared. “She sleeps with us. She loves daddy. She loves watching him play X-box. She’s like this model human being.”
And not only does Chanel sleep with her prideful parents, she also watches their favorite TV shows with them, including Botched, Naked and Afraid and Snapped. The couple will be hosting a Snapped marathon this weekend.
“If you look at our list of TV shows, it’s pretty shady. We got Snapped. We got Botched. We got some sick stuff,” she joked. “We wind down around 10 p.m. at night in bed with Chanel, and she usually goes to bed at 11 p.m. and she watches TV with us. She likes watching TV. She has no idea what’s going on, but she likes the color and the sounds and she usually plays with the dogs in bed while we watch our shows.”
Sounds like they have the perfect little routine nailed down!
Ice-T and Coco host Oxygen’s Cruel Summer: Snapped marathon Sunday starting at 6 p.m. ET/PT on Oxygen.
