The Internet is still buzzing over Ayesha Curry admitted her insecurities during the season premiere of Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk. Jada invited Ayesha and the other Curry women to talk about living in the public eye.
Ayesha, 30, opened up about women lusting after her husband, Warriors superstar Steph Curry.
While Jada revealed she doesn't care if women lust after her husband, A-list actor Will Smith, Ayesha said the disrespect from women on social media bothers her.
"The ladies will always be lurking and waiting for their moment but for me, I honestly hate it," said Ayesha, who revealed she defends her territory even in her husband's DM's.
Ayesha said it "irks" her nerves when women leave suggestive messages for Steph in his social media apps. The mother-of-three, who knows Steph's passwords, says she often confronts women in his DMs, letting them know they are communicating with her, not Steph.
But the brazen women usually refuse to back down.
"I don't like to have to introduce myself. It irks my nerves. So I try and make that known. But there have been a couple of times when I wanted to punch somebody in the face. But that's just human nature."
Then Ayesha surprised viewers by admitting she wished she received similar attention from men on social media.
"Something that really bothers me and has honestly, given me a little bit of an insecurity is like 'Yeah, there are all these women throwing themselves [at Steph] but me, the past 10 years, I don't have any of that. It sounds weird but I have zero male attention."
Her comments sparked an intense debate between men and women on social media.
Ayesha's defenders, include Essence magazine writer Joi-Marie McKenzie, who says Ayesha is simply expressing a woman's desire to be wanted by more than just one man.
"What I heard was a wife's honest admission of being fully human, of saying that although I have a man that many women would love to be with, there are times when even he's not enough. There are times when I want to see if I still got it."
Social media influencer Issac Hayes III says men are probably avoiding Ayesha out of respect for her marriage.
"I think Ayesha doesn't realize the reason she doesn't get attention from other men is cause men know a good thing when they see it and respect her and Steph's marriage," Isaac wrote on Instagram.
He suggested she is probably bored with her life as a homemaker and she needs a challenge.
"She basically sounded like she wanted Men to try her ... so she could curve them all to make her feel sexy again," he wrote.
