Victoria Prince dating K-Fed?

by Jason Schock at 11:09 PM

Looks like Kevin Federline has drunkenly meandered into beach volleyball's little world. Rumor has it the derelict dad - who only managed to come out of the Britney Spears mess looking like a hero because his girl went batsh*t crazy - is dating Victoria Prince, an occasional player on the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour. Story at E! Online.

No doubt, Prince is easy on the eyes. She's no volleyball star, but wouldn't it be funny if she became the Anna Kournikova of beach volley?

I've only got a few shots of the lass, but VolleyShots has some good photos, as does my amigo from East Beach, Ken Delgado - pic.

AVP, Inc. will deregister with SEC

by Jason Schock at 11:51 AM

The owner of the AVP Beach Volleyball Tour is "going dark".

Today, AVP, Inc. announced they will deregister with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and consequently be dropped from listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange will no longer be traded OTC. As the stock has been hovering below $1 per share for over a year, it's likely they would have been delisted per NASDAQ rules, anyway.

After delisting, there will be no public market to buy or sell AVPI stock; shares will be relegated to the much less liquid "pink sheets". Typically, share price drops, though at $0.08 per share, there's not much lower you can go.

This is not a good sign. Though AVP is trying to spin this as a cost-saving measure, the reality is that they've been financially faltering in the last few years. Tack on a terrible economy and this may just be the nail in the coffin for pro beach volleyball.

Kerri WalshBeach volleyball star and two-time gold medalist Kerri Walsh is pregnant. She revealed this publicly today to some dude from Access Hollywood who seemed strangely concerned with the details of the baby's conception. (Apparently this was a slightly post-medal conception, if you're kinda weird and nosy.)

No word yet on Misty May-Treanor's baby status, but "she's trying" according to Kerri.
