What’s Hot on The Triumphant Scoop’s Radar:

*Cody Bell shows off his California home, beautiful wife, and TWO(yes two) sets of twins.

*Martin Luther King III and BOUNCE TV Celebrate their 1st Birthday.

*Activist and Author Sister Souljah to release Coldest Winter Ever 2 A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story.







1.) Cody Bell shows off California home, beautiful wife, and TWO(yes two) sets of twins:

Featured in Ebony magazines October ‘Live’ segment, and entitled “Double Happiness” (Gabrielle Union Cover)- Bet’s ‘The Game’ star Cody Bell shows off his Long beach, CA home, wife, talks of currently starring in two TV shows, and having TWO(yes two) sets of twins. Wow, what a blessing!

Inside, Ebony contributing Editor Karen Good Marable starts the article off with a few quotes from Bell about his arrival rituals and spreading happiness around his home. The feature also touches on everything from Bell’s traveling schedule over to how he creates the perfect home for his family. According to Ebony’s “Double Happiness” feature on Bell:

“Whenever Bell returns to his Long Beach, Calif., residence from work, the first thing he does is bang an album-sized brass disc and exclaim, “Happy gong!” The reverberating note signals to his family that Dad’s home; for Bell, however, the ritual means something more. “Everytime I walk in, I let the sound spread happy vibes around the house,” he says. “It’s just to remind everyone that life is good.”

Well, let’s all have a toast the happy trails of the Bells, why don’t we? Much respect to Cody Bell for creating such a cool life for his family.


2.) *Martin Luther King III and BOUNCE TV Celebrate networks 1st Birthday:

1.)   Targeting African Americans primarily between the ages of 25-54 with a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, live sports, documentaries, specials, and inspirational faith-based programs, Bounce-TV is majority African American-owned, and founded by Martin Luther King III (dope!). The number 1 most recognizable civil rights leader of all time, Dr. King would be super proud to know that one of his four children has created a platform where the content of our talents, gifts, achievements, and character are shining just as great as the color of our skin. “I am very proud of our network and the amazing growth it has enjoyed. Bounce TV’s rapid expansion validates the need for free programming for our under-served community,” states Martin Luther King III.

Aside from producing three original series, carrying live sporting events, and producing powerful Black History documentary’s, Bounce TV also pushes 3 original series and recently acquired airing rights from a ton of major movie studios, including: The Walt Disney Studios; Paramount Pictures; Miramax; MGM Domestic Television Distribution; NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution; Sony Pictures Television; Warner Bros. and Lionsgate.

Bounce TV can be looked upon as our life boats of saving grace from the long sunken ships of wretchedness that VH1 seem to hoard us with(after all, they are merely just catering to the needs of their black audience- yea right!). Available in nearly every city where the African-American population dominates (Bounce premieres on Detriot’s WXYZ-TV on Sept 26th), Bounce TV airs twenty four hours a day (remember when certain channels would bounce off the air around 3am?), seven days a week on the digital signals of local television stations.

For more info on Bounce TV, its line-up, and how you can tune-in, bounce on over to their website here: http://www.bouncetv.com/

PS- Bounce TV will be airing Master P’s classic, “I Got The Hook-up” tonight. =)


3.)    Activist/ Author Sister Souljah gears up for Coldest Winter Ever 2 A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story:

According to Twitter (dont you just love social media?):

A tweet from earlier this year, as Souljah continued pulling the pieces of her latest novel together.

Around August 6th, Porsche seemed to have it all together, but politics usually have everything to do with the publishing date. Therefore Porsche’s release date was still TBA.

As you can see, Porsche Santiaga is a wrap!….and hitting shelves soon. Midnight III is on the way. Wow, what a trilogy.

And here’s a toast for the release date! I love me some Sister Souljah, and true fans should remember her stating on her website years ago that The Coldest Winter Ever 2 would come from the viewpoint of Porsche. Though now it seems as if she’s shifted things up a bit. Who knows, maybe Porsche’s ride will have us just glued to the pages as Winter’s story did!

If you haven’t read any books by Sister Souljah, scoot on over to Amazon.com and snag you a few. Trust me, they’re worth every bit of the hype!
