Ayesha Curry Never Wants Anyone To Think She's "Too Perfect"

In an upcoming 'Haute Living' interview, the Warriors wife talks her culinary career, the championship loss, and her rising celebrity.

Ayesha Curry has been a topic of conversation on social media for sometime, some good and some bad. She seems to keep things very family orientated and private, only deviating from her "good girl" image in the heat of the NBA Finals. In a new interview with Haute Living, the culinary wonder gets into her career and how it felt when Steph and the Warriors lost the NBA championship.

The mother of two started her culinary career by dining with chef Michael Mina and losing a bet. “He invited me to come and cook with him, and we had the best time. We joked that if the Panthers made it to the Super Bowl (my husband and I are from North Carolina, so we’re big Panthers fans), I would come and cook with him again,” says Curry. The Panthers made it and she went back and cooked for him and his guests at a tailgate and it took off from there. Curry has kicked off her entire culinary career without a stitch of formal training.

“Both of my parents worked, so it was my way of helping around the house by making dinner for my family. I fell in love with it. Instead of cartoons, I was the kid who was watching Food Network, falling asleep to Emeril and Rachael Ray.”

Since then, twenty-something Southern Belle has a line of olive oils, a cookbook titled The Seasoned Life, a pop up restaurant with chef Mina, and a new cooking show on the Food Network. Although the show's premiere date hasn't been revealed, her cookbook will be out in September 2016. When discussing how she approaches the ventures that she has, Curry adds that she never wants to come off as too perfect.

“For me, I just do what is true to myself and my brand. I’ve made it a point to be transparent on my social media and in everything that I present. I never want anyone to think that I’m too fluffy or too perfect. It’s not the kind of message I’m sending out."

As the interview rounds out, she briefly touches on the fact that she is still getting used to the celebrity. When asked about the championship loss and the social media backlash, Ayesha admits she had no idea anyone was paying that much attention. But in true Curry family fashion, she ends with crediting Christianity with how she and her family make it through every thing in life.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
