Ayesha Curry responds to her haters on social media after she made a comment about "male attention." The celebrity chef made sure to silence her haters once and for all. 


Earlier this week, Ayesha Curry appeared on Jada Pinkett-Smith's Facebook Watch Series called "Red Table Talks." There, she opened up about being a mother and the good and bad about her marriage to NBA superstar Stephen Curry. 


However, at one point of the show, it ended up being about all the women that surround her husband every day because of his fame. While there's nothing wrong with a wife feeling bothered about all the women surrounding their husbands, she also said that she does not receive the same attention from men the same way her husband has with women. 

"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 talking."

Social Media Backlash

Ayesha's comments began to circulate on social media, and many of her critics began speaking. To them, she was being insecure in her marriage by doubting Steph. Likewise, it seems as if she was bothered that people don't give her the same attention as they give her husband. 


Ayesha's stellar response

However, after having enough, Ayesha decided to "speak her truth." Through an Instagram post, she decided to lay down the facts and defend herself from all the harsh comments being thrown her way. 


“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,” she captioned in the post. “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!”

Curry then proceeds to say that every single person on earth has their insecurities, and she is definitely not afraid to acknowledge hers. She also encouraged people to watch the entire "Red Table Talk" episode to understand where she's coming from, and not base their opinions solely on headlines and rumors. 


“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! 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!”

The Controversial Episode

On the season premiere of the Emmy Award-nominated show, Ayesha Curry reveals how she feels about women constantly surrounding her superstar husband, Stephen Curry. She said that she honestly hated it. 


The celebrity chef acknowledges that there will always be a lot of women surrounding her husband, as that comes with being a world-famous superstar. However, if they were to ask her, she hates it. 

However, after years of being in the spotlight, Ayesha had no choice but to be okay with it, and it's something that she's gotten used to. While it has gotten to this point, she admits that it took a while. 

It's her security in their marriage and her faith in Stephen that reassure her every single day that deep inside, Stephen only has eyes for her.
