Anna, the wife of former Major League Baseball pitcher Kris Benson, was named "Baseball's Hottest Wife" by FHM Magazine in 2004, so she's obviously a very welcome addition to the cast of this newbie series. She and Kris have been together for 12 years now, and though that seems lengthy in the world of entertainment and sports, the marriage hasn't been without its bumps in the road.
Anna was seen as a bit of a curse to her baller husband; the New York Times said that "in her one year in New York [the 2004-2005 season], Anna Benson drove the Mets to distraction." Furthermore, after Kris was traded by the Mets to Baltimore, Kris reportedly blamed Anna. Ouch. The general manager of the Mets disputed this, claiming it was just a baseball trade, but the words may have already done their damage by that point—Anna briefly filed for divorce from Kris in 2006, citing an "irretrievably broken marriage," before they patched things up.
Prior to marrying Kris, Anna dropped out of high school during her sophomore year, had her first child at 17, and began dancing in Atlanta strip clubs for cash. She's also known for being outspoken, which will take her awfully far in the world of reality TV. In a 2004 interview with Howard Stern, who has the amazing ability to get people to say literally anything, Anna famously proclaimed that if Kris were to ever cheat on her, she'd sleep with everyone on her husband's team to get revenge.
A welcome addition to the cast indeed.
