The new VH1 series Baseball Wives doesn’t premiere for two weeks, but one of the show’s stars, Anna Benson, is already stirring up some controversy!
Anna, the outspoken wife of former Mets player Kris Benson, doesn’t hold back in a new interview as she disses the cast of Basketball Wives by stating she and her costars are much, much classier than them. Shots fired!
In a new interview with the NY Post, Anna, a former stripper, declares: “We are not like the ‘Basketball Wives,’ ”adding, “We are classy.” Wowzers.
Even better, Anna, 35, goes on to describe the clASSy manner in which she met her husband. According to Anna, she met Kris in 1998 while dancing at Atlanta club Mardi Gras.
When it comes to her classy costars, Anna explains there will definitely be some fireworks as she admits she is already feuding with one of them. “It definitely will come out, which one I like the least,” she teases. “We can just name her ‘skank.’ Actually, ‘skank possum!’ ”
Anna then goes on to describe her life before meeting her millionaire husband. “When I came to Kris, I had nothing — two pairs of panties and one bra,” said the mother of four. “Suddenly, I found I was married to a millionaire.”
After briefly filing for divorce in 2006, Anna now reveals her marriage is stronger than ever. “I am so in love with Kris. He is such a stud in bed and everywhere else,” she says.
The very outspoken Anna is mostly known for the comments she made on the Howard Stern Show back in 2004 when she threatened to sleep with her husband’s entire team if she ever caught him cheating. Anna also graced the cover of FHM magazine in 2004 when she was named “baseball’s hottest wife.”
Baseball Wives is set to premiere November 30 on VH1 (9/8c).
Below are some older photos of the clASSy Anna including one with her husband Kris!

Even worse for the famewhores Kardashian clan, the movement against them is gaining steam. “In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement to Yahoo News. “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
The more popular petition via GoPetition.com now has over 80,000 signatures (it had 55,000 this morning) — a vast increase from the 15,000 it had yesterday. It is not just an organized effort to get the Kardashian/Jenner clan off television screens, but also to put an end to their empire which includes clothes, perfume and nail polish bottles.
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them,” Cyndy continued. “I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.” Preach sister!
Cyndy adds that whether the petition works or not, she will continue to circulate it on the World Wide Web. “There is no particular religious or political platform behind our disgust; we are just finally fed up,” she added.
Meanwhile, a new report by the NY Post is stating Kimmie is planning to take some time away from the public (haven’t we heard this before???). Apparently, Kimmie really, really wants the public to know she is still mourning the end of her marriage despite posting kissy face photos on her blog this week!
The Post reports Kim is “keeping an uncharacteristically low profile” and has told her team to cancel all promotional obligations until her New Year’s Eve gig in which she’ll host a party at TAO Las Vegas. Kim has also canceled a ShoeDazzle tour in the UK, two book tours and an appearance at Z100’s Dec. 9 Jingle Ball. Her sisters Khloe and Kourtney will be forced to promote the novel they penned with Kim, titled “Dollhouse” without her this week in NYC.
Unfortunately for Kim, I believe her career is done whether she takes time away from the public or not. Like I stated weeks ago, once the media starts to turn on you the end of your “career” is near. It happened to Paris Hilton, it happened to Heidiand Spencer, and now it’s happening to Kim Kardashian. The Kardashians (mostly Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner) definitely got too comfortable and definitely too arrogant with their fame. Must say they didn’t think this latest stunt all the way through. They overestimated how much the public really loved them, when in fact most of the public were simply only tolerating them. It appears the talentless family have now worn out their welcome.
You, however, have to love the irony that Kim (who made them famous with her sex tape) is the same one ending their reign of A-list fame with her quickie divorce.

For starters, Kim’s three dress changes totaled $92,000, though Kim has stated her main wedding dress, in the above picture, was used. The $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin was also embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace.
“We spared no expense, you only do this once,” Kim, who’s on her second marriage, told Life & Style. “This is it for me. It’s very expensive but we’re in a position where we’re able to do that and I’m thankful for that.”
Kim, 33, and Kroy, 26, also spent $14,000 on their 11-layered cake! More photos from Kim’s wedding are below!
In other Kim news, Bravo has finally confirmed today that she does indeed have her own spinoff show coming soon! The title? The ever so clever ‘Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding.’ The network promises the docu-series will chronicle Kim’s extravagant wedding.
The press release reads: “Each thirty minute episode will follow the adventures of Kim preparing for her wedding on the lucky date of 11/11/11. With less than 2 months to plan, she enlists celebrity event planner Colin Cowie to help design a dream wedding in her brand new multi-million dollar home. The pressure is on as Kim rushes to find a dress, lose remaining baby weight and cosmetically enhance trouble spots. With the date quickly approaching, problems mount– her invitation is leaked to the press and her mother refuses to attend the wedding. Still, Kim is determined to marry Kroy and won’t let anything ruin her perfect day.”
As for Kim, she reveals she is excited about the new show. “I am so excited to give an up close and personal look at the next chapter in my life,” Kim said. “My life has turned into a true Cinderella story and to watch the pieces unfold is going to be great! I can’t wait to share with all of you!”
“Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” is expected to premiere on Bravo in 2012.

Unable to sue the millions and millions of people that rightfully believe her 72-day marriage was a sham, the Keeping up With The Kardashians star has decided to sue her former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson. The reason? Because he has been telling media outlets her marriage to Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt!
It appears that Kimmie is also upset because Jonathan, who was her publicist when she first released her sex tape became famous, revealed just how much of a famewhore she really is.
“When we first met it was all about getting publicity and turning her into a star,” Jaxson told RadarOnline. “I staged so many paparazzi moments for her… I arranged for her to be coming out of a jewelry store and made it look like Reggie was planning to propose to her.”
“She would call and tell me to alert the press so there were cameras there whenever anything happened,” adds Jonathan stating that Kim’s constant need for attention was part of the reason her ex Reggie Bushbroke up with her. “Reggie cottoned onto it and he didn’t like it, that was part of the reason they split up. He couldn’t handle the fame and her desire for it.”
Jonathan, who believes Kim’s marriage was a publicity stunt, adds: “She has just become this different person who is eager and hungry for fame. She has a mass craving for attention.”
According to TMZ, Kim is now suing Jonathan to the tune of $200,000 for his comments to Radar Online. Kim is claiming Jonathan violated a confidentiality agreement he signed, and now wants him to pay up for damaging her reputation with his allegedly defamatory statements. Kim also claims she only worked with him once years ago and barely remembers him. Uh uh.
Jonathan, who has also worked with other reality famewhore star Kim Zolciak, however states he never signed a confidentiality agreement.
Meanwhile, just two weeks after pulling the plug on her sham marriage by filing for divorce, it appears all is back to normal for Kimmie Kakes!
Kim, 31, took to her website yesterday to post a “Thank you” note to her “loyal” supporters (aka her “blog dolls”). She wrote: “Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you guys for all your support these last two weeks. I took a break from blogging for a while, but I’ve missed you guys so much and I want to start sharing my updates with you all again. I’ve been reading all your comments on here and, as always, my loyal blog dolls have been nothing but supportive. You all know who you are, so thank you! I love you guys. Kim xo”
Kim also made certain to include a kissy face photo of herself to her darling fans! Apparently, all it takes is two weeks to mourn the demise of her sham marriage! Nice to see things are back to normal for Kimmie. Her kissy face photo is below.
Unfortunately for Kim, the public still hates her because almost 80% of those polled on the HollywoodLife blog feel she needs to shut up and go back to staying out of the public eye. Ouch! And according to the rumor mill, Tyler Perry, who hired Kim to be in his new movie, cut her role short due to the backlash from his fans. Sources say Kim was supposed to film for four weeks for her role, but ultimately ended up filming for just a week.
As for Kris Humphries, he has finally hired a divorce lawyer and will reportedly be signing the divorce papers soon.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU BELIEVE THE COMMENTS BY HER FORMER PUBLICIST?
Jenni, part-time rapper and long suffering assistant of designer Jeff Lewis, announced the good news on Twitter! “Today is a beautiful day. The man I love has asked me to be his wife,” tweeted Jenni on Sunday.
Even better, Jenni’s new fiancé is a doctor! The Starcasm blog reports Jenni’s beau is Dr. Jonathan Nassos, an orthopedic surgeon from Chicago.
This won’t be Jenni’s first marriage as she was previously married to Chris Elwood. Chris also appeared on the show working for Jeff in seasons 1 and 2, but was ultimately fired at the end of season two — thus contributing to the demise of his marriage.
Congrats to Jenni on her engagement! No word yet on whether this will appear on the next season of Flipping Out. Jenni also tweeted that her boss Jeff has given her his blessings.
Each of the four remaining contestants had to perform three dances each — two individual dance numbers and a Cha Cha relay.
After falling into second place last week, Ricki Lake came back with a vengeance this week earning the highest scores of the night! Ricki finished in first place by earning a perfect score of 30 for her “sizzling hot, bright and brilliant” samba dance, a 29 for her tango, and an 8 for her Cha Cha. She ended the night with an amazing score of 67!
Also showing an amazing improvement after coming in 4th last week was Rob Kardashian! First, Rob earned a score of 28 for shaking his butt during his “fantastic” samba. When you add that to the 27 he earned for his Argentine tango along with the 10 he received for the Cha Cha, Rob finished the night with a 65.
Coming in last place this week was soccer starHope Soloand partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. In Hope’s defense, she did have to dance through a painful shoulder injury. While the judges liked her Argentine tango, giving her a score of 24, they also stated her paso doble “lacked artistry”. Hope received a 21 for the paso doble and earned 4 points for her Cha Cha after finishing last in the relay dance.
Meanwhile, after the live show, Maksim had some choice words for judge Carrie Ann Inabawho criticized him for smiling during her critique. When asked about Carrie Ann’s comments backstage, Maks stated: “F— Carrie Ann,”adding, “Next question.” Perhaps he was joking?
“I think Carrie Ann has an issue,” continued Maks. “I don’t know what it is. I would love to know what it is so I can address it. But as of now, I have no clue… I think it was a great night. I totally disagree with the scores, but what else is new?” Hope also chimed in stating, “They’ve [the judges] wanted to get us off since day one.”
Below are the full scores from last night –
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough (30, 29, 8 ) 67 Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke (28, 27, 10) 65 J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff (23, 27, 6) 56 Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovksiy (21, 24, 4) 49
TELL US – WHO SHOULD BE THE NEXT TO GO? DO THE JUDGES HAVE IT OUT FOR MAKS?
According to a new report by TMZ, Dana would have made a perfect Bravo housewife as she is now being sued for fraud alongside her fiancé John Flynn, who is described as an “entrepreneur.”
In the lawsuit filed at the L.A. Superior Court this week, Mary Painter alleges Dana and John defrauded her out of $53,000. Mary claims she invested the money in 2008 with the couple and another man… she claimed would get at least a 10% return on their investment.
Mary adds that she tried to get her money out a number of times over the past two years to no avail. TMZ adds that it’s unclear what exactly Mary was investing in. She is also suing for breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation as well as asking for her money back plus damages.
Dana’s fiancé spoke to TMZ stating: “There is no fraud. Dana Wilkey is not a properly named defendant, and we expect to continue to negotiate and gain dismissal of this lawsuit as quick as possible.”
Dana also took to her Twitter page to defend herself. She wrote today, “Its a frivolous lawsuit. It will be dismissed. I didn’t even know about it until I TMZ.” She later added, “I’m not involved. I haven’t even met or spoken to the women.”
In other RHOBH news, Thefix.com (a blog about addiction and recovery) is breaking down Kim Richards’ mix of medications. During last week’s episode, Kim revealed her medications to Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif, who then revealed the mix of prescription drugs likely to blame for Kim’s odd behavior this season.
The Fix blog went a step further specifically listing what exactly each drug Kim is taking does to the body and mind. The blog reveals that Kim’s drug mix is a “recipe for confusion.” While Lexapro — one of the drugs Kim is on — is said to be side-effect-free (below is the break down of the two remaining drugs):
Trazodone – “A tetracyclic antidepressant that’s often given to recovering alcoholics and addicts for its strong soporific quality—useful for insomniacs who’ve relied on narcotic-based sedatives—but its side-effects include confusion and difficulty concentrating or remembering things.”
Topamax – “Is an epilepsy drug and mood stabilizer that’s been used experimentally to treat alcoholism and migraine disorders. It, too, carries some crazy risks: users call it “Dopamax” or “Stupamax” because of side-effects like feeling disoriented and confused, or the inability to remember words or speak in complete sentences.”
Kim’s sisterKyle Richards also blogged this week, citing she feels vindicated that the world can now see prescription drugs are to blame for Kim’s behavior this season and not illegal drugs or alcohol. Below is an excerpt from Kyle’s Bravo blog –
“I am happy they showed Kim discussing with Paul the medication’s she has been taking. I think that clears things up for some people. I didn’t know exactly what she was taking, but I knew that the doctors had put her on something and I saw a difference in here — and not always for the best. That is why I got so upset with Brandi for making that comment about Kim and crystal meth. I knew because she said that on camera millions of people would see that. I know from experience, once something is said on camera, true or false, it follows you forever. My sister Kim has struggled enough with her issues. I didn’t want that to set her back. She is a strong girl but fragile at the same time. I told Kim after her visit with Paul that she had to talk to her doctor’s and get that sorted out. Paul didn’t feel she was on the right medication for her anxiety and didn’t think it was the right combination of meds.”
Moving on to tonight’s new episode of the RHOBH! On the 11th episode this season titled “Tempest in a Tea Party,” Lisa’s stately tea party is at a high boil when Taylor’s true feelings about Lisa bubble to the surface and marital issues are addressed. This is the episode that has been highly promoted by Bravo during which Camille will reveal the claims of Russell Armstrong physically abusing Taylor.
