If you don’t know Anna Benson, she’s the uneducated, outspoken, gorgeous former stripper married to former Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kris Benson.

Some of her career highlights include dancing at the Mardi Gras in New Orleans, being an FHM cover girl and proclaiming she’d sleep with the entire Mets team if Kris ever cheated on her. Frankly, those are more highlights than her husband has ever produced on the diamond.

Now, Anna can now add another highlight to that list of career achievements — star of VH1′s Baseball Wives, which is pretty much like Basketball Wives, except, you know, these chicks are or were married to baseball players.

The New York Post sat down with Anna to discuss the show and, of course, she dropped some verbal gems.

On why the Mets traded Kris to the Orioles after only one season with the team:

“They were scared of my big fun bags,” she insists. “They were afraid they were too big, and they were going to obstruct the view of the fans seeing the game. Plus they were intimidated by them themselves. So they had to trade him, I guess.”

“I don’t know why you would trade a stud pitcher. I don’t know why it became about me. But it kind of makes me feel good that they were intimidated by me.”

jQuery(function($){$("a img.gallery-wall-fade").hover(function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:.5},{queue:false,duration:400});},function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:1},{queue:false,duration:400});});});

On what the difference between Basketball Wives and Baseball Wives is:

“We are not like the ‘Basketball Wives,’ ” Benson tells The Post. “We are classy.”

And a new one on what she would do if Kris cheated on her:

“I will just find some secret drug that makes [him] impotent,” she says, “and I’ll put it in [his] food!”


The show also includes Erika Monroe Williams, wife of the Diamondbacks’ Matt Williams, Chantel Kendall, ex-wife of the Royals’ Jason Kendall, Tanya Grace, ex-wife of the Cubs’ Mark Grace, and Brooke Villone, wife of the Marlins’ Ron Villone.

Cat fights ensue… we assume.

As for Kris, well, he didn’t have really any success after leaving the Baltimore Orioles in 2006. He pitched eight games for Texas in 2009 and three for Arizona in 2010. He finished 1-1 both seasons before retiring in early 2011 with a 70-75 career record and 4.42 ERA.

Here’s more of what you really want.
