Ayesha Curry is one of the celebs that is refreshingly honest about the highs and lows of the journey of stardom. Both her and her husband, Steph Curry, are poster children of getting this public eye relationship thing right, and that's what we love about them. Additionally, Ayesha manages to balance her family's very public personas with being a full-time entrepreneur and damn good mom.
So, when she joined 'The Ellen Show' to discuss all of the above, we equally got all of our lives.
During a segment called 'Drawer Dash', a game where Ellen instructs guests to find something in their homes based on a specific criteria, Ellen asked the Cookbook author to "bring me something, that you never want to see again."
Ayesha responded by running off camera to get her mystery item, just to return with two silicon-filled breast implants. Yes, her breast implants. She says:
"OK, so these are my old implants, and I've been waiting for the perfect moment to have like a going away party for them, because they weren't good to me, they didn't work for me. They worked for some people but they've got to go, and I don't want to ever see them again."
"Good for you!" Ellen exclaimed, the audience cheering them on.
In the past, Ayesha confirmed getting plastic surgery in 2015 when she received the implants, and in May 2019, she also admitted that she decided to get a "lift" after suffering from postpartum depression after giving birth to her second child, Ryan. She told Working Mother magazine:
"I didn't realize at the time, but after having Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while. It came in the form of me being depressed about my body. So I made a rash decision. The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn't want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet. They're worse now than they were before. I would never do anything like that again, but I'm an advocate of it if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgement?"
Additionally, the mommy of three, has famously recently shed 35 pounds, shocking social media with her lowkey progress. In a video for Harper's Bazaar, she opens up about her approach to nutrition and reveals that working out has become more important to her over time.
"Fitness wasn't really a part of my lifestyle and I'd say the past year and a half post having all of my kids, it's really become a staple for me and it helps me have mental clarity. I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. I feel happier when I work out. So I do try to work out at least five days a week."
Her honesty is everything.
Also during the interview, Curry reveals that her son thought that Steph was a golfer, her Mother's Day plans, and the humbleness of her husband breaking all those records in the league right now.

We’ve hit the mid-point of the summer, where we shift our priorities from hitting our gym goals to making the most of what we have left of the summer. Hitting a slump in your summer workout routine is a common experience that many individuals face, especially with routines becoming disrupted by vacations, social events, or simply the allure of lazy beach days. It's easy to find yourself veering off track from your fitness goals, but that isn’t a sign of failure. The initial enthusiasm we began the season might start to wane, but there’s still time to hit the reset button.
Resetting your summer workout routine is all about introducing new workout routines into our schedule that challenge you, spark gym joy, and get you to shake off the midsummer slump. Embrace the summer spirit by incorporating outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, or beach volleyball, which are just as effective as they are fun. And if you’re considering trying new fitness classes or joining a group workout to add a fresh perspective and social aspect to your routine, you’ve got the perfect program for you to explore.
The 14-Day Summer Sculpt series from Alo Moves is a sizzling workout designed to reignite your summer fitness routine. Led by your new gym besties, Jeffrey Alan and Meghan Mcferran, this program promises to sculpt your muscles from head to toe with short and spicy workouts that pack a punch.

With a mix of sculpt styles like dance, slow burn, and cardio, you’ll say “bye-bye” to boredom as you switch things up with a new workout every day. Whether you're a seasoned fitness enthusiast or just starting your journey, this series caters to all levels of experience. You have the flexibility to choose between individual workouts for a quick sweat or stack them together to intensify the burn, allowing you to adapt the program to your personal fitness goals.
I’ve been implementing workouts from the series into my gym time to change up the monotony of my cardio and HIIT routine. As someone who has always wanted to incorporate more dance and high-energy moves into my workouts, I’ve found myself gravitating toward the “Dance Strength Sculpt” And “Dance HIIT & Sculpt” programs with jumping, high-energy, muscle-building movements that put a focus on my abs and glutes.
The 14-Day Summer Sculpt series aims to invigorate both your body and mind, creating a sense of motivation and energy that will carry you through the last stretch of summer. By targeting and toning your muscles effectively in each class, you'll experience tangible progress over the two weeks, leaving you feeling strong and confident in your ability to bounce back after a gym hiatus.

While the moves can be challenging at times, it’s been fun to see what I can accomplish when I embrace each challenge and let the good vibes flow.
It's okay to have occasional setbacks or days when you don't feel like hitting the gym. Working out is a journey with many ebbs and flows that remind you to be patient with yourself and to practice self-compassion. By hitting the reset button and embracing a new approach to your summer workout routine, you'll find renewed enthusiasm, stay committed to your fitness goals, and make the most of this vibrant and active season.
Whether you're prepping for a special end-of-summer vacation, aiming to improve your overall fitness, or simply seeking to have fun while staying active, this series will be a perfect addition to your summer reset routine.
