Chile it’s 2023 but Ayesha is still salty about that one time the Red Table Talk made “her sound crazy”.
In an interview with the Insider Curry said therapy really helped her to navigate the negativity of the media alluding to her RTT appearance.
She said she is no longer interested in being the main character (or worse, a supporting character to her husband).
Curry explains that being taken out of context for clicks is a painful lesson; she’s had to learn to be guarded.
She had a particularly bad experience on “Red Table Talk” — the Facebook Live interview series helmed by Jada Pinkett Smith — in 2019.
At the time the show was taped, Curry was newly postpartum, a nursing mother.
On the program, she discussed sometimes feeling insecure in her marriage, sometimes wanting attention — real and vulnerable human emotions.
But the show “was edited in a way that made me sound crazy,” she says. “It’s not what I said, and the context was weird. Yeah. I took that one personally.”
This broad always got something to complain about. Red table talk didn’t make you look any type of way. You said what you said. Stand on it. Steph curry attention isn’t enough for you. He the only one think yo ass cute ? #ayeshacurry pic.twitter.com/Ct8zU068Tu

“Media is a very ruthless space,” says Curry’s sister-in-law, Sydel Curry-Lee. “Celebrities are real people.
All press is good press, but that’s not true when it comes to our emotions and our mental health.” In their family, “we’re all about protecting our peace.”
Ayesha did take some hard hits around that time for “her words”.
Twitter had a field day:

So Curry has taken a step away from the spotlight and toward charity work and entrepreneurship, entering the wellness and lifestyle space with her company, Sweet July.
In a sense, as the wife of a very famous athlete and therefore the head of a very famous family, she’s always been selling her lifestyle.
But Sweet July has allowed Curry to leverage her fame to get the better end of that bargain.
Should Ayesha still be mad about the Red Table Talk thing?
