Curry, who is married to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, told “Red Table Talk” hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Bandfield-Norris that she suffered from self-doubt because of a lack of male attention, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.
According to USA Today, the comments spurred lots of buzz on social media about how Curry handles her marriage.
- "I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity," she wrote on Instagram. "I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out."
- She said she wanted "to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth. And that’s OK!”
- "If what I’m not afraid to say out loud about being a 30yr mama of 3 helps another woman like me feel like they’re not the alone and not the only one with an insecurity (because we ALL have them, don’t play) then that makes all of this hoopla worth it," she said. "If you get a chance to watch the actual ('Red Table Talk') and not the headlines and rumors please do!”
On the Facebook Watch series last Monday, Curry said she will intervene when women try to talk to Curry. She opened up about how many women try to fawn over him, according to my report for the Deseret News.1 comment on this story
- “Stephen is very nice by nature and he’s very talkative,” Ayesha Curry said. “Everything is always very friendly and sometimes to the point where I’m like, I’m a grown woman so I’ll just insert myself. I’ll be like, ‘Hello. How are you doing?'”
- "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?'"
