The latest episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” features Bay Area leading lady Ayesha Curry as well as other powerhouse women in the Curry family — Steph’s mom Sonya, Steph’s sister Sydel, and Callie Rivers, who is engaged to Seth Curry, brother to Steph.
In the interview, Ayesha gets real about what it’s like to be married to one of the biggest stars in the NBA and how she handles other women “lurking” around her hubby.
To put it lightly, she does not mess around.
“Stephen is very nice by nature,” Ayesha said. “Everything is always very friendly, sometimes to the point where, ‘I’m a grown woman,’ so, I’ll just insert myself and be like, ‘Hello, how are you doing?'”
She added that “the ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting.”
“I honestly hate it,” she said.
She said that Steph makes sure that if they’re going somewhere together, he introduces everyone to his wife to make sure people don’t get it twisted.
“But there have been a couple of times, where I’ve wanted to punch somebody in the face for sure,” she said. “He can’t see it coming, I see it from a mile away.”
Ayesha referred to Steph’s mom Sonya as a good example and said she’s always tried to have something on her own like her expanding cooking empire and books.
“It’s gonna make my husband a better person as well, because he has this strong woman next to him, who has her own wants and needs,” she said. “I feel like I have greater value and passion, and I’m just happier that way.”
Overall Ayesha said she’s confident in herself and Steph knows it, too.
“I know who I am and more importantly, he knows who I am,” Smith added. “You have to have an internal space of confidence.”
You go, Ayesha!
