Anna Benson is a model, former exotic dancer, and VH1 “Baseball Wife” who is in a contentious divorce with MLB pitcher Kris Benson.
Anna Benson was recently arrested after she put on a bulletproof vest, busted into her estranged husband’s home and threatened him with a gun and metal baton unless he gave her $30,000. She has been charged with assault and criminal trespassing. Seems Kris told her he was going to get the money, but called police instead. Police also found her with a knife and an ammo belt.
Anna said she did nothing wrong.
Anna Benson earlier said, “Kris was my whole life. And he left me for someone else and he just abandoned us. I’m scared and I just don’t know what I’m going to do or how I’m going to take care of these kids.”

Anna’s measurements are 34E-24-34 and she has appeared in “Sports Illustrated” and “FHM,” which named her “Baseball’s Hottest Wife.”
In 1992, at the age of 16, she dropped out of high school and moved out of her parent’s home. A year later she married a dentist and she had a daughter. However, a year later, they got divorced. In order to pay the bills, Anna turned to stripping.
She said of people in Georgia, “They’re so judgmental. It’s real Bible Belt.”
In 1998, Anna met then-minor league pitcher Kris Benson while dancing at a club. Turns out they had attended rival high schools, but never got to know each other. A year later, they too, were married, this time in Hawaii. The couple had two children. Anna then underwent breast enhancement and began modeling and appeared in “Penthouse.”

In 2004, Kris was traded to the New York Mets. Anna Benson caused controversy a couple times. First, when she wore a low-cut Santa dress to the Mets Christmas Party; and second, when she told Howard Stern that she would sleep with the entire Mets’ organization if she ever found out her husband had an affair.
The couple nearly divorced in 2006, but Anna withdrew the petition. She said, “When I came to Kris, I had nothing – two pairs of panties and one bra; suddenly, I found I was married to a millionaire.” The marriage would not last. It collapsed in 2012.
She is also into poker and has the moniker “The Gold Digger.” In 2005, she began playing at the 2005 World Series of Poker, but was ejected for excessive cursing.
She starred on VH1’s “Baseball Wives” in 2011 and 2012.
