Sharing a throwback photo from her days as a calendar model, the wife of Ice-T writes, 'I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre.'

AceShowbiz - Coco Austin claims she, not Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj, made big butts appreciated. The 38-year-old actress/dancer, who is famous for her curvaceous body, took to Instagram on Sunday, January 14 to tell everyone that she created "the derriere phenomenon" when people still adored skinny girls.

She shared a throwback photo from an old motorcycle calendar. In the image, she was squatting while wearing a tiny string thong and bra, leaving very little to the imagination. "I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling," wrote the former "Ice Loves Coco" star, who started her modeling career when she was 18.

She continued, "I feel people should know it wasn't easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before KimK, Nicki Minaj."

She credited Jennifer Lopez and the late Anna Nicole Smith for popularizing big butts, though, writing, "During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon... and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision."

"To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world," she added, "But I helped changed the minds of what booty was. Today its a normal thing to see all different shapes and sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history..I don't want to toss it aside like it was nothing...I'd like to think some of my modeling was meaningful... After tons of calendars,DVD's over 100 magazine covers and editorials I'm still standing..Thank you for all years of support .Power to the booty and strong healthy women!"

I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling ..I don't post much about it & new followers don't even know I had a career in modeling they just see a wife,mother and someone that was on reality tv but just like every actor, singer, rapper, entertainer I'm proud of what I've done. I feel people should know it wasn't easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before KimK, Nicki Minaj..( I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them, this was also back before the plastic surgery craze. During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon and Cindy Margolos was a popular bikini model and Buffie the Body was a popluar urban model and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision..To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world.. But I helped changed the minds of what booty was. Today its a normal thing to see all different shapes and sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history..I don't want to toss it aside like it was nothing...I'd like to think some of my modeling was meaningful... After tons of calendars,DVD's over 100 magazine covers and editorials I'm still standing..Thank you for all years of support .Power to the booty and strong healthy women! (This pic is from one of my motorcylce calendars) Update to post!!! This was posted yesterday & ALL comments were positive until race was brought up today.Let me remind you 20 years ago there were not a lot of white girls w/ thick bodies in the modeling game.They didn't consider my body type as the standard therefore It was harder to work in the industry.I was one of the 1st white models to break the mold & go mainstream with my body type and to let people know its OK to be curvy in the modeling world.Today curvy is the norm but when I first started out it wasn't. Yesterday I felt I explained this thoroughly but I see some of you needed more details

Many people gave positive responses to her post, with one writing, "You the real mvp." Another commented, "You're banging Coco...then and now! Thank you for your contribution to women in general...whatever size, color, race, ethnicity or religion! I hope Channel follows in your footsteps! She's a beauty! Much love to you and Ice-T!"
