Ayesha Curry says she feels self-doubt when women approach Steph Curry: ‘Is something wrong with me?’
Curry, who is married to NBA star Stephen Curry, talked to Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris about her husband.
SALT LAKE CITY — Ayesha Curry appeared on the Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk” on Monday where she spoke about what it’s like to see her husband be approached by women, USA Today reported.
Curry, who is married to NBA star Stephen Curry, told “Red Table Talk” hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris that she will insert herself into conversations when moments like that happen, according to People magazine.
“Stephen is very nice by nature and he’s very talkative,” Ayesha Curry said. “Everything is always very friendly and sometimes to the point where I’m like, I’m a grown woman so I’ll just insert myself. I’ll be like, ‘Hello. How are you doing?'”
She continued, “I’m OK with it now and obviously, you know the devil is a liar.”
Curry also said she feels self-doubt when these moments happen, according to USA Today.
"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?'"
Pinkett Smith said she “dealt with that for years” when she was younger.
"I don't want it," Curry said, "but it'd be nice to know that, like, someone's lookin'."
"You're beautiful," Pinkett Smith reminded her. "Don't ever think for one minute that it ain't no some men out there looking at you like, 'I wish.' And I'mma tell you who knows that more than anybody: Your husband."
Social media criticized Curry for her comments. According toThe Root, while some people on social media responded with support, others were confused as to why Curry would want to feel attention from other men.
