Ayesha Curry has riled up the internet once again after making a comment about her marriage.
Ayesha recently appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk Facebook Watch series and opened up about her relationship with Steph Curry.
After addressing the topic of women basically throwing themselves at her NBA superstar husband (sometimes even in front of her), Curry revealed that she’s bothered by the fact that she doesn’t get the same treatment from other men.
“Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that yeah, there are all these women, like, throwing themselves (at him), but me, like the past 10 years, I don’t have any of that,” she said. “I have zero – this sounds weird – but, like, male attention, and so then I begin to internalize it, and I’m like, ‘Is something wrong with me?’”
Smith admitted to Curry that she “dealt with that for years, too” when she was younger.
“I don’t want it,” Curry added, “but it’d be nice to know that, like, someone’s lookin’.”
“You’re beautiful,” Smith reminded her guest. “Don’t ever think for one minute that it ain’t no some men out there looking at you like, ‘I wish.’ And I’ma tell you who knows that more than anybody: Your husband.”
Of course, Twitter had strong opinions about Curry’s remarks, with most posting memes and jokes making fun of her for being insecure about not receiving attention from other men, and others basically asking “what if a man said this?”
Imagine if Ayesha curry was the millionaire and Steph said

Ayesha may have valid insecurities but NOBODY wants to hear that shit when 99% of women out here are literally playing extreme sports with the remaining men. Take your prize and go.

Ayesha Curry is married to the greatest SHOOTER ? of all time and she still wants dudes to shoot their shot at her. She has it made. Lives an amazing lifestyle every woman dreams. Yet still unsatisfied because the attention isn’t on her. This is female nature on full display.

Not everyone on Twitter was against Ayesha though. Some came to her defense, saying she has a right to feel the way she feels
People hating Ayesha Curry for admitting how she feels is ass backwards to me. We’re all insecure in some area. She shouldn’t be getting crucified for telling her truth.

I can’t believe you guys are still talking about Ayesha. Leave the girl alone

You people should leave Ayesha pls. Let her express herself and however she’s feeling

Ayesha Curry just saying the duh obvious. If you had a famous and admired partner, of course you’d feel some insecurity. And of course we all want attention. So much hypocrisy and face-saving by people when it comes to relationships, love, and sex. https://t.co/la0na6hhAX

Ayesha Curry hate from women reminds me of Russell Wilson hate from men.

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.
