Justin Bieber MVP, 'NBA All-Star Celebrity Game'We know Justin Bieber can sing. We know he can command a stage. We know he can make pre-teen girls scream until they pass out. What we wouldn't have expected from the 5'5" pop star is game. At the 'NBA All-Star Celebrity Game' (Fri., 7PM ET on ESPN), Bieber proved himself to be quite the basketball slueth.

Sure, he couldn't have dunked unless someone threw him at the net, but his ball-handling skills were impressive, his passing was superb, and the kid was hitting three-pointers enough to make some NBA pros jealous.

For his efforts on the court, Bieber did something he wasn't able to do on Grammy night. He won a trophy.

soapnetThe success of last summer's General Hospital: Night Shift was the harbinger of things to come. And now they have. SoapNet announced a new 10-episode drama series called MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives.

It makes sense that SoapNet would take another stab at creating its own dramas. Last year's Night Shift, the channel's first attempt at that kind of original programming, proved more popular than the reruns of daytime soaps it had been running at 11 o'clock at night. But the difference between this new offering -- about the ladies in the lives of professional hockey players...hockey and soap? -- is that Night Shift was based on General Hospital and used popular stars from the daytime show for the spin-off. If Steve Burton (Jason), Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) were not in Nightshift, would SoapNet viewers have tuned in?
