Model and Baseball Wives star Anna Benson is reportedly divorcing former Major League Baseball pitcher Kris Benson after his involvement in an alleged affair.

“I’m very sad about this,” Anna told FOX411. “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.”

She claimed the affair began while she was recovering from foot surgery earlier this year and introduced one of her best friends to her husband in hopes he could help manage her money after the friend’s divorce.

Kris Benson formerly pitched for the New York Mets, Baltimore Oriels and Arizona Diamondbacks before retiring his baseball career to work for the New York-based Monarch Wealth & Business Management.

“As much as I’d love to comment about these accusations, I think it’s best for myself and my children that I let things be handled legally, not through the media,” he said in an e-mail to FOX411.

Anna Benson infamously stated on the Howard Stern Show in 2004 that if her husband ever cheated on her, she would have sex with the entire New York Mets team.

She told The New Yorker in 2005: “I was talking about infidelity. I have to come up with stupid humor to be understood by these idiots who take everything so literally. All these big-time athletes who cheat and get away with it! Why should we put up with that ****? It’s time for us to get back to traditional values!”

Anna, who signed a prenuptial agreement, reported that she receives $4,000 a month in child support payments and registered her three children as homeless.

“My heart is broken, because I really loved him,” Anna said. “But now, I just want to be a mother. I don’t need some mansion – I don’t need any of that. I just want a place for my kids.”
