“Khloé & Lamar,” which in its first season averaged an impressive audience of nearly two million total viewers, follows the nonstop lives of Khloé, the most outspoken and opinionated Kardashian sister, and her basketball superstar husband, Lamar. Their love for each other is stronger than ever and will be tested this season once again when the family packs up and moves to Texas after Lamar was unexpectedly traded from the LA Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Khloé is taking every day as it comes and as is more determined than ever to keep their family spark alive. Making this sudden move as smooth and easy as possible for Lamar will be her top priority as they embark on their new chapter in Dallas. In the new season, the couple tackles the pressures of making a new home in Texas, balancing their hectic schedules, families and, most importantly, their romantic one-on-one time.This couple knows that no matter how crazy life gets, love and laughter are never far away. During the season, Khloé’s unintentionally overprotective nature causes tension between the lovebirds and Lamar feels the need to prove to his wife that he’s more than capable of taking care of himself. Additionally, now that Rob has moved out, Lamar worries that their close bond isn’t as tight as it once was, and questions whether they were ever really close to begin with. Also this season, Lamar continues to build his relationship with his father.
“Ice Loves Coco” takes viewers behind the hype and headlines and into the daily lives of rapper/actor/author/motivational speaker Ice T and his model/entrepreneur/Internet-sensation wife Coco. In its first season, the series’ eight-episode run averaged 1.7 million total viewers, and the season finale drew the series’ largest audience ever, with more than two million total viewers. In the new season, the couple packs their bags for some much needed rest and head off to Hawaii and Miami for a little fun in the sun. In addition, Ice and Coco start to get serious and begin exploring the idea of expanding their family, but as fans will see, they aren’t the only ones considering a change. The always-unpredictable duo has decided to breed their adorable English Bulldog Spartacus, and feel certain he will be a terrific father. Considered by the couple to be their “son,” Ice and Coco are already on the lookout for Spartacus’ ideal “baby mama” and won’t rest until a suitable mate is found. Additionally the couple will soon begin house-hunting in anticipation of their expanding family and Coco makes a special guest appearance in a sexy new role on Ice’s series “Law and Order: SVU.”
