Ayesha Curry Reacts to Criticism of Her Comments About Insecurities

Ayesha Curry opened up about her relationship with Golden Gate Warriors champ Stephen Curry in her "Red Table Talk" interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, and some of her candid comments were met with a social media backlash.

Now the cookbook author and chef is standing up to criticism in a pointed post that fiercely defends her feelings.

Ayesha revealed on "Red Table Talk" that she often gets insecure about women who throw themselves at her husband, and admitted she feels she doesn’t receive the same type of attention from men.

"I have zero male attention. And I begin to internalize that. Like, 'Is something wrong with me?' I'm like, 'That's not fair.' I don't want it. But it would be nice to know that someone's talking,” she confessed.

Did Ayesha back down from haters who had negative remarks about her speaking her truth? Nope.

A part of her Instagram caption on Wednesday said, “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!”

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)

She went on to explain that she’s going to continue to speak her mind. “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.”

Ayesha also encouraged women to “uplift, empower and not suppress and compress our feelings and thoughts, as fleeting as some of them may,” and sent her love to her fans.

The hosts of the “The Real” weighed in on Ayesha’s initial "Red Table Talk" comments on Wednesday’s show. Tamera said, “In regards to the attention of men, and in comparison of what her husband gets, she was just saying sometimes you want to feel like you still got it!”

The Ladies of 'The Real' on What #RelationshipGoals Actually Are

Chances are you’ve referred to a couple as “goals,” whether it’s a celeb duo who has adorable PDA, a cute couple sweetly holding hands, or an elderly pair who have been together for what seems like forever. While we tend to admire a love that’s survived all obstacles, when do those obstacles not deserve to be endured?
