Ayesha Curry Addresses Backlash Over Recent Interview: Don’t Just Read The Headlines & Rumors!
Ayesha Curry has a message to anyone who has something negative to say about her recent comments on Red Table Talk.
While on the Facebook show, Curry opened up to host Jada Pinkett Smith about having to confront women who try to flirt with her husband, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. While that didn’t ruffle any feathers, she added that while Steph gets lots of attention from women, she doesn’t get the same type of attention from men, which has caused her to feel insecure.
“Something that really bothers me and has given me a sense of an insecurity…Yeah, there are all these women throwing themselves. But me, I don’t have any of that. I have zero male attention. And I begin to internalize that, like ‘Is something wrong with me?’ I’m like, ‘That’s not fair.’ I don’t want it. But it would be nice to know that someone’s looking.”
After fans shared their peace on social media (and basically slammed Curry), she took to Instagram to respond. She wrote,
“This is me throwing a pair of spanx in a Marie Kondo-Esque bin. “Does it spark joy?” I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out. Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time 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 okay!
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. If you get a chance to watch the actual RTT and not the headlines and rumors please do! There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together. 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 ?. Love to you all! Go FIND YOUR JOY and SPEAK YOUR TRUTH unapologetically. ??(that’s all-Miranda voice)”
