And She’s Single

If these kids couldn't make it, what chance do the rest of us have?

Anna Benson has decided to part ways with her husband, Kris, after she finally had done her best to ruin his career. Troublesome sports wives such as Joumana Kidd, Jackie Christie, Elisabeth Filarski and Lisa Gastineau will all wear black bras in remembrance.

Evidentially Anna must feel that the time is right to strike out on her own career. What, with her being an aspiring model and soon to be Playboy playmate. Posing for the men’s magazine should help launch her career much like it helped Jose Canseco’s wife – ah, what’s her name? Or that one girl who was on that one show – we will never forget her.

Maybe Anna should reconsider what she is doing. She is exhibiting the same kind of thinking that led David Caruso to leave NYPD Blue. Or the Sports Dork to become a TV writer.

Or maybe she has the same agent as Elizabeth Berkley who convinced her not to return for one more season of Saved by the Bell. Maybe that’s the hook for Benson. The end of Showgirls (yes, it is embarrassing to admit to watching until the end) hinted at a possible sequel. We now have our future star of Showgirls 2. We know she already did a lot of her research at Scores. Well played, Anna.

You know, in that picture Anna looks a little bit like Yvonne De Carlo, who played Lily Munster and who I once had in the sack.

Is it too much to ask her to leave the spotlight quietly? That would be wonderful.

This is all too much for the male sportswriters from Ottawa who were surely hoping that Kris would end up on a rehab stint with the Lynx, Anna in tow. I guess they'll have to settle for ogling Esix Snead's groupies instead.

P.S. I don't know if Esix Snead has groupies. I just wanted an excuse to write his name.
