Celebrities really ARE regular people. They suffer from insecurities and feelings of unworthiness, even the beautiful Ayesha Curry.
In this day and age it seems like people always try and kick someone when they’re down, or just trying to be vulnerable! Ayesha stopped by Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Facebook show, Red Table Talk along with her Mother-in-law and sister-in-law and she got candid about marriage and insecurities. She revealed how she isn’t afraid to take matters into her own hands if she feels another woman is disrespecting her and trying to flirt with her husband, Steph Curry.
It is of course expected that Steph, will get plenty of female attention, unfortunately for many wives of professional athletes, that just comes with the job. Steph and Ayesha have been together for almost ten years and what she revealed at the red table, may come as a shock!
“What really bothers me,” Ayesha started. “And even has given me a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that yeah there are all these women throwing themselves, but like the past ten years, like, I don’t have any of that. I have zero, this sounds weird…but like male attention.” Both her mother-in-law and Jada immediately chimed in with their disagreements, saying that she doesn’t realize it, because she of course isn’t checking for it.
Many women suffer from the same feelings. Just because you’re married, although you may only care about the attention from your spouse, it is nice to still know you are desirable! After so many years of marriage who doesn’t want to be reminded they still got the juice one and a while?! “I don’t want it, but it would be nice to know that someone’s looking.” Curry clarifies.
Even still, people were coming for Ayesha on social media, mostly men (no surprise there), making misogynistic comments suggesting that because Curry is wealthy and has three beautiful children she can’t be insecure. Despite the haters, plenty of people came to her defense! Check out some of the tweets below:
I know why Ayesha Curry makes some women uncomfortable. She represents everything they were told they should be, from her look to her her marital status and role we assume she plays at home. However, there is no excuse for holding her accountable for what society did to you.

Ayesha Curry was vulnerable about insecurities folks deal with daily.
I call that brave. We can choose to accept invitation to discuss the ways our socialization damages confidence.
Confidence is essential to success, yet we damage it in women daily. That’s the discussion.

Ayesha Curry wants to feel desired. Not to act on it but to know that after becoming a wife and having 3 kids she’s still desirable. Y’all attack people in the spotlight when they show human emotion. I’ll never understand.
