Dinner with Coco Austin: Welcome to Vegas!

Deadline week at the magazine (no sleep for the weary!), but I’ll get back to my San Francisco and Napa trip soon. In the meantime, I managed to squeeze in dinner with my favorite new Vegas import, Coco, who in some circles is known as “the nicest celebrity ever.” I was dying to meet her because in addition to my continued fascination with anything to do with live theater, like me, Coco moved to Albuquerque as a teenager — and then left right after high school. (I always wondered where she went to high school. Turns out, she went to Montessori school and was then home-schooled.) Interestingly, she lived in Vegas for a time before she met Ice… Twelve years later, the happy couple, stars of E!’s hit reality show Ice Loves Coco, are splitting their time between NYC, where Ice shoots Law & Order: SVU, and Vegas, where Coco is headlining in Peepshow, at Planet Hollywood. Coco told me that when Ice was on break from SVU, he spent three weeks in Vegas and went to his wife every single night! True love… They sound adorable! I went to opening night, and it was fantastic. This girl can dance, and the rest of the cast puts on a great show with some creative choreography.

Welcome (back) to Vegas, Coco!

  9. You meet the most interesting people! I have to admit that I’m changing my preconceived notions of her after seeing a few episodes of Ice Loves Coco…although I’d still love to see her tone down the over the top plastic-y sex appeal, it seems like she’s a caring, real person.
