Four years ago Ayesha Curry sat down for an interview on Red Table Talk. Looking back, she now says she regrets appearing on the Facebook Watch series.

In an interview with Insider published May 24, the entrepreneur and wife of NBA star Steph Curry discussed the role therapy has played in her life. She talked about finding balance, and said she’s decided to step away from being a media personality.

She noted that she’s become more guarded after some of her past comments in interviews were taken out of context, adding one of her worst experiences was on Red Table Talk.

Curry appeared on the Facebook Watch series in a May 2019 episode, and told hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, her mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her daughter Willow Smith being a basketball wife isn’t easy because women are “always lurking” around her husband.

Curry now says the interview “was edited in a way that made me sound crazy.”

“It’s not what I said, and the context was weird. Yeah. I took that one personally,” she added.

The wife and mom was joined at the red table by her husband’s mother, Sonya Curry, and other family members. She discussed staying confident, dealing with anxiety and handling aggressive female fans.

“Stephen is very nice by nature and he’s very talkative,” she said on RTT. “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?’”

Curry added, “The ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting – you need to be aware of that – but for me, I honestly hate it.”

Red Table Talk featured many high-profile interviews over its five-year run, including with Bobby Brown, Niecy Nash, Paris Jackson, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Cheryl Burke, Jessica Alba, Ashley Graham, and the cast of A Different World.

Yet Curry is one of the only celebrities to publicly say her comments on the show were taken out of context.

The digital talk series was canceled last month after parent company Meta shut down its Facebook Watch division in a cost-cutting measure, as previously reported.

Red Table Talk premiered in 2018 and was produced by Westbrook Studios (Jada’s company with Will Smith).
