Baseball Wives: the newest show to try and cash in on insane wives of rich or famous or sports players. Unfortunately, its debut ran into pretty low numbers. We're talking only 600,000 total viewers.
But that's not the only dramz going on, as one of the wives has left the show — Erika Monroe Williams!
In the premiere episode last week she had a huge argument, which is not a surprise given what the content of the show is about. Here's what she's saying as to why she's jumping ship:
“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.”
We're relatively sure the show has nothing to do with representing anyone, anyone's family, or the MLB with the utmost respect. It's reality TV! Give us a break!
That's not all though, as we talked about Anna Benson going batshizz crazy on her castmates a few days ago… with a dildo… and now she's speaking up about it:
“I could care less what people think about me. I know who I am. My friends know who I am. I don’t really care what someone writes about me. It’s just not true. It’s the stupidest thing I’ve heard in my life. 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.”
Anna, we just can't wait until we see whether or not it's true — because we gotta say that it sounds legit.
We just hope the show is around long enough (in terms of numbers) so we can see the episode!
