Both Ayesha Curry and Steph Curry have given their official replies to the conversation surrounding Ayesha’s recent interview on #TheRedTableTalk with Jada Pinkett-Smith. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock or just completely unplugged from all social media and TV news, we’ll get you all caught up!
Ayesha Curry was recently featured The Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett where all of the ladies from the Curry family were featured. They spoke on a myriad of topics surrounding what it is like being married to men in the NBA. All of these ladies have married into the sports industry the moment they said “I do” to their husbands. While the financial security may be good, they each spoke about how that kind of life can come with a lot of challenges and insecurities.
Like most women, each of these ladies are balancing being many things to many people (a woman, a wife, mother, a daughter, an entrepreneur and more). However, in addition to all of that, they have to deal with the extra pressure of their entire family (including their children) being placed in the spotlight at all times. This is enough to make anyone stressed more than usual. In the interview, the ladies opened up about their challenges with anxiety, it’s causes and how they believe medicine and therapy is helping them.
When they got to the topic of insecurities Steph Curry’s mother was the first to speak up to share her feelings and experiences. After she spoke, Ayesha Curry shared her truth about questioning her beauty because she doesn’t receive the same attention from men as her husband seems to receive from other women.

When watching the full interview, it’s clear that Ayesha is not looking to have an affair, but the headlines twisted the story enough to spark a response from both Ayesha and Steph Curry.
Ayesha responded via instagram to clear up the twisted headlines and rumors. In her full statement she included a message to all women saying,
“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.”

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)
Stephen spoke up later in support of his wife via his instagram story post saying,
“Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there – not being afraid of the potential bull s#*# and nonsense that could and did come at you. Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”
Ayesha stands by her truth and encouraged viewers to watch the full interview to hear the full conversation which shows all of the women from the Curry family speaking about womanhood, race, metal health, fame, family and more. Watch the full interview below and let us know your thoughts.
