Anna Benson Interview

While Baseball Wives only debuted a week ago, one of the cast members of the VH1 show is already choosing to walk away.

In an exclusive statement to Reality Tea, Erika Monroe Williams, who had a big blow up with costar Chantel Kendall on last week’s premiere, reveals she is quitting the show.

Erika states: “After working on Season 1 of Vh1’s show “Baseball Wives” I have made the decision not to return for Season 2. I have worked in the television industry for many years and I am a big fan of reality TV, however I am not a big fan of being on a reality show. I have really grown to love my castmates and I have always focused on representing myself, my family and Major League Baseball with the utmost respect. It is my hope that this becomes apparent in the upcoming episodes. I would like to thank Vh1 and Shed Media for the opportunity they have given me.”

Meanwhile, the ratings are out for last week’s premiere and it appears Baseball Wives is far from a hit especially in comparison to its counterpart Basketball Wives.

Last Wednesday’s premiere only managed to pull in a mere 600,000 total viewers. In comparison, the August premiere Basketball Wives brought in 1.8 million viewers. Seems like Baseball Wives will end up another Football Wives…

Finally, the show’s breakout star Anna Benson is now slamming a report by TMZ which claimed she threatened her costars with a stun gun and… a 12-Inch dildo!

In an interview with ESPN, Anna assures us she is really not that cray! “I could care less what people think about me,” said Anna. “I know who I am. My friends know who I am. I don’t really care what someone writes about me.”

When asked about the TMZ report, Anna denies threatening her costars. “It’s just not true. It’s the stupidest thing I’ve heard in my life,” said Anna who is quite notorious for being outrageous. “A lot of people can’t take jokes. I’m there to entertain myself and I’m not a mean-spirited person. I respond to what is given to me. I’m trying to make people laugh.”

A new episode of Baseball Wives airs tonight on VH1 at 9/8c.


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).
