In one of the show's episodes, TMZ reported that Anna Benson threatened one of the co-stars with a stun gun and dildo. TMZ said some of the cast members threatened to quit the show after the incident.

According to her "Baseball Wives" biography, Benson is described as a "straight shooter whose frank opinions on a variety of topics raise eyebrows and ire everywhere. A cross between Angelina Jolie and Bill O'Reilly, she has an unapologetic stance on everything from guns to furs."

She claimed in the VH1 bio that if her husband would ever cheat on her, she would "sleep with everyone on her hubby's team, from the owner down to the batboy."
