Ayesha Disa Curry (née Alexander; born 23 March 1989) is a Canadian–American celebrity chef, cookbook author, television personality, businesswoman, former actress, and occasional model. After guest roles in several television shows and movies, she host her own show Ayesha's homemade on Food Network. Curry is the author of several videos on her channel Little Lights of Mine and has written one cookbook The Seasoned Life (2016).
At age 12, Curry acted as the love interest in the music video for "Too Young for Love" by Suga Prince. After high school, Curry moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Prior to her marriage to Stephen Curry, Ayesha was an actress, known for Underground Street Flippers (2009), Dan's Detour of Life (2008), Love for Sale (2008), and guest roles in several television shows.
The idea of channeling her childhood passion for food into a career did not occur to Curry until she started building a family. Her husband encouraged her to start a blog, so she has become a presenter of cooking and lifestyle tips, her own YouTube channel. Her company Little Lights of Mine sells its own brand of extra virgin olive oil, and 10% of all proceeds are donated to No Kid Hungry. In addition to her written recipes, Curry often posts instructional cooking videos on her YouTube channel.
In 2016 Curry had a breakout year, she collaborated with chef Michael Mina in The Mina Test Kitchen of International Smoke, a Bay Area pop-up restaurant, released her cookbook The Seasoned Life and debuted her cooking show Ayesha's Homemade.
According to Variety, Ayesha’s Homemade will focus not only on Curry’s recipes, but also on her life as a wife and mother, with plenty of cameos from her husband and two daughters.
Personal life Edit
Both of Curry's parents are biracial. Her mother is of African/Chinese Jamaican descent while her father is of Polish/African American descent. She was born and raised in Toronto until the age of 14, when she moved to Charlotte, North Carolina.
On July 30, 2011, she married NBA player Stephen Curry. The two met in a church youth group in Charlotte when they were 15 and 14 years old. Together, they have two daughters, Riley Elizabeth (b. 2012) and Ryan Carson (b. 2015). They currently reside in Walnut Creek, California
Curry has been know for being outspoken on her Twitter page. In December 2015, she took to Twitter to have a conversation about modesty as she discussed the latest fashion trends among women. She tweeted out the following: "Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like Just looking at the latest fashion trends. I'll take classy over trendy any day of the week. #saturdaynightinsight" The tweet grew major controversy.
During the 2016 NBA finals, after Game 6 of the NBA Finals, she deleted tweet accusing the NBA of being rigged after her husband was fouled out of a game during the hotly contested finals. Her tweet landed her in hot water with fans after mainly Cleveland Cavaliers fans. The comment, which was widely publicized both in the traditional media, and the blogosphere, caused a media stir. She later apologized for the tweet.
“I'm in love with my husband and so I was protective ... It's hard to portray your personality in 140 characters,” she explained. “And so at times I tend to be very cynical. And I don't think that comes across very well on social media.”
