Ayesha Curry Defends Herself After Her 'Red Table Talk' Confession Goes Viral
Ayesha Curry is usually known as the sweet and lowkey wife of basketball player Steph Curry. However, after her appearance on 'Red Table Talk' went viral, she had to defend herself for the oddest reason.
During a discussion on the Facebook Watch show, Ayesha explained that, as expected, her husband gets lots of attention from disrespectful groupies. That is not what set the internet ablaze -- it was her confession that had social media users on polar opposite sides of the conversation.
The 30-year-old mother of three went on to admit that she questions why men don't give her the kind of attention women give her husband. As simple and innocent as her revelation was, people took it and ran with it.
Some felt that Ayesha's comment was disrespectful and attention seeking while others understood and related with the fact that Ayesha may be struggling with lack of confidence especially because of the changes that come with being a married mom.
The discussion caused Ayesha's name to trend on Twitter and be turned into memes. Unfortunately, it also turned into a moment that men used to unfairly justify their poor choices on the basis of the belief that 'women are never satisfied.'
Curry, of course, caught wind of the drama and took to Instagram to comment on it.
"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."
She went on to say: "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)"
