Ayesha Curry says ‘I know what I said’ in response to comments on marriage with Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry
May 15, 2019
Ayesha Curry continues to fend off critics about comments she made last week about her marriage to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.
Last week, Ayesha Curry spoke on the “Red Table Talk” Facebook Watch show about her marriage to Curry and admitted that she feels some “self-doubt” when women approach her husband, according to the Deseret News.
Ayesha Curry said on the show that she doesn’t receive as much male attention, which has been the subject of much backlash from social media critics and trolls.
“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?'”
Curry posted a photo of herself and her husband Steph Curry. She wrote in the post, “Our mamas gave us common sense and that’s not common. Thank you mamas we love you!”
In response, a commenter wrote, “Attention at its finest.”
Ayesha Curry didn’t waste time responding to the critic.
“This is exactly what I mean,” Curry began. “Speaking without examining the true context for yourself. Don’t read headlines. Watch the show. Everyone’s going crazy and my husband and I are over here sober as a gopher because I know what I said. … Willingness to speak on your thoughts unashamedly is being secure. Not the other way around.”
Ayesha Curry’s comments on the Facebook Watch series drew a lot of criticism, of course. But her husband Stephen Curry openly supported her, as did celebrity Wendy Williams, according to the Deseret News.
“I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity,” she wrote on Instagram. “I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out.”
