Ayesha Curry is doubling down on some much talked about comments she made in a recent interview and we possibly love her EVEN more now!
Yes in a recent interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on her Red Table Talk show, Ayesha opened up about her feelings on female groupies who throw themselves at her basketball star hubby Steph Curry. Ayesha revealed that she does experience insecurities at times because, in comparison, she doesn't get the kind of outside attention that Steph receives.
During the chat Ayesha says:
"Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that yeah, there are all these women, like, throwing themselves (at him), but me, like the past 10 years, I don't have any of that," she said. "I have zero – this sounds weird – but, like, male attention, and so then I begin to internalize it, and I'm like, 'Is something wrong with me?' "
Pinkett Smith admitted she "dealt with that for years, too" when she was younger.
I don't want it," Curry added, "but it'd be nice to know that, like, someone's lookin'."
"You're beautiful," Pinkett Smith reminded her guest. "Don't ever think for one minute that it ain't no some men out there looking at you like, 'I wish.' And I'mma tell you who knows that more than anybody: Your husband."
Well, as you may know, in 2019 you can't simply have a truthful and transparent moment without social media adding their own two cents. Curry soon felt the wrath of internet trolls criticizing her comments prompting her to hit back with a response via instagram.
And of course her husband Steph had her back, saying:
"There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together," she added. "As women let’s continue to uplift, empower and not suppress and compress our feelings and thoughts, as fleeting as some of them may be 😏.
