Last month, when Food Network announced they were going to give Ayesha Curry her own cooking show, tentatively titled “At Home With Ayesha” social media responded to the news by creating memes of what they think viewers can expect once she’s on the big screen. The memes poke fun at a statement she made late last year about covering up and saving the goods for her man.
Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters ???

During a recent interview with ESSENCE, Curry was asked about her new show, cookbook and of course, what she thought of the memes.
“It just doesn’t make sense to me,” she said. “I wonder why people are so hateful sometimes. I just don’t get it. I want people to know these memes aren’t coming from me and I didn’t endorse them. I have a feeling whoever is making them is mostly men trying to pin women against each other and that’s something I don’t stand for, especially with us Black women. I just wish we could support each other a little bit more. I want everybody to succeed.”
