Update (May 9, 2019): Ayesha Curry addressed the controversy surrounding her appearance on Red Table Talk.

She posted a picture of herself throwing away a pair of spanx because they don’t “spark joy,” as Marie Kondo would say.

Curry was unapologetic about expressing herself on the show.

“I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human,” she wrote in a Wednesday Instagram post.

“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.”

The chef hopes being open about her problems will help other moms who might be struggling.

“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,” she stated.

Curry encouraged people to watch the whole episode to get context and doesn’t regret sitting down with host Jada Pinkett-Smith.

“There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together,” Curry said.

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. 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)

Original: Twitter, for some reason, has plenty of smoke for Ayesha Curry after her appearance on Red Table Talk.

Curry appeared on the show with her mother-in-law and sisters-in-law to talk about life as basketball wives. During the episode, the chef shared an experience she had with her husband Steph Curry’s overzealous fans when her daughter Riley was a baby.

"This group of people come over and they’re trying to ask Stephen for pictures and autographs,” Ayesha recalled. “The woman opens the car door, sticks her body in the car and is like, ‘Oh, let me see...the baby.' "

When Ayesha understandably refused, the woman became indignant.

“Oh, honey, you know what you signed up for,” the fan allegedly told her.

She admitted there were times she wanted to square up with some of Steph’s fans.

"There have been a couple of times when I wanted to punch somebody in the face for sure,” she said. “Never him — it’s always the other person.”

Ayesha also admitted she was bothered by the attention her man receives from other women.

“There are all these women throwing themselves [at him],” she said. “The past 10 years, I don’t have any of that. I have zero male attention. I begin to internalize it is something wrong with me?”

The mother-of-three also shared she suffered from anxiety after Willow Smith described her experiences with the mental disorder.

"I have anxiety too, really bad, to the point where I actually take medication for it," Ayesha said. "And I think it’s something that everybody, in some way, has moments. I think open communication and putting your feelings out on the line, that helps me a lot, [and] just letting someone know, 'I’m kind of having an anxiety attack right now.'"

The interview was very tame but that means nothing to the timeline. People have been clowning, criticizing and caping for Curry all day.

There’s people claiming she’s a pick me and teasing her for wanting to be desired.



Others are in her corner.


There’s a lot going on here.

We recommend everyone involved take a breather. Try knitting, perhaps?
