Anna Benson

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 infamous Anna Benson continues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!

TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1′s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.

Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.

ANNA BENSON CLAIMS BASEBALL WIVES ARE CLASSIER THAN BASKETBALL WIVES!

Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.

TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!

Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANNA’S CRAY-CRAY BEHAVIOR? DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIERE? WHAT DID YOU THINK?

Baseball Wives Season 1
The season premiere of Baseball Wives is right around the corner and if you’ve been dying to see what all the excitement is about, wait no longer as Vh1 is giving us our first glimpse of the show in the form of a supertrailer, titled of all cliff hangers: “Tears, Manipulations, And Bikinis”! I’m hooked already!

The new series will follow the lives of five wives, ex-wives and girlfriends of professional Baseball players as they struggle to balance relationships, friendships and chaos. The Baseball Wives are: Anna Benson (wife of retired Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Kris Benson), Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago Cubs’ First Baseman Mark Grace), Chantel Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City Royals’ Jason Kendall), Brook Villone (wife of Ron Villone) and Jordana Lenz (linked to no particular athlete in particular – but I’m sure she has an MLB ex or two somewhere).

“The baseball wife community is sort of this rare little club. It’s very complicated,” explains Chantel, who I am betting is the cast’s resident wild child based on reports of a previous love triangle involving Chantel, her ex-husband and rocker Rod Stewart‘s son, Sean!

Anna has already promised plenty of explosions along with some pretty serious mean girl behavior (“skank possum,” anyone?). I predict Anna will occupy the Evelyn Lozado role of this franchise, as in she is capable of some hard-core backstabbing and some unfortunate sexytimes TMI!

The trailer tells us that in the baseball community the wives face an “85% divorce rate” to a “90% chance that your husband’s going to cheat on you,” add that to the often long-distance relationships and the ladies are faced with some pretty insurmountable odds. Oh and the dynamic between the ladies themselves? 100 % D to the Rama!

Watch the exciting supertrailer below and get ready for some fly balls! Baseball Wives premieres on Vh1 Wednesday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

THOUGHTS ON THE TRAILER? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE NEW SHOW? WHO DO THINK WILL CAUSE THE MOST DRAMA?


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!

Baseball Wives Cast

Well, if you love the trashy over the top antics of Basketball Wives get ready for Baseball Wives!

Vh1 announced the new series will follow five wives, ex-wives and girlfriends of Major League Baseball players and veterans of various teams as they face the challenges of coping with “marriage, gossip, and fame” – and each other – as part of the “inner circle of baseball wives.”

Taking place in Scottsdale, AZ where MLB Spring Training is held, these ladies are sure to come out swinging in the drama department! “No shrinking violets here,” the promo blurb cites of the cast. “These ladies are fiercely protective of their turf and their men and if they have to bring on a little drama — then so be it.”

The new Baseball Wives are: Anna Benson (wife of retired Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Kris Benson), Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago Cubs’ First Baseman Mark Grace), Chantel Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City Royals’ Jason Kendall), Brook Villone (wife of Ron Villone) and Jordana Lenz (linked to no particular athlete in particular – but I’m sure she has an MLB ex or two somewhere).

The season will follow the women through the complex world of MLB as they define friends from foes and struggle with relationship drama galore! “With the baseball season being the longest in professional sports, the women count on their friends to be their emotional support while their husbands are on the road, but sometimes a friend can be your worst enemy. Rumors swirl and friendships are tested among the professional athletes’ wives as they are forced to make emotional decisions, proving that their lives are often just like everyone else’s.”

Baseball Wives premieres on Vh1 Wednesday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. More details, photos and bios of the ladies coming soon!
