Ayesha Curry Is Cooking Up A New Family Game Show

Celebrity News

Ayesha Curry is the girl boss we all aspire to be and she is proof that basketball wives are far more than mere trophies. As she and her husband rose to fame in the sports arena, the multi-talented mother used her talents to become an icon in her own right.

In February, she revealed her pregnancy with Baby Curry #3, but she recently took to Instagram to share the news that a bun in the oven isn't the only thing she's been cooking up. She announced that she's hosting a brand new cooking game show on ABC with a grand prize that could buy a whole lot of groceries for one lucky family. She posted on Instagram:

"So excited I FINALLY get to talk about this. This mama has been hard at work on a new exciting project!!! I'll be hosting and exec. Producing a new competition series for @abcnetwork called Family Food Fight!!! 8 families from across the country will go head to head to claim the title of America's number 1 food family! Not only that... they'll win $100,000."

Family Food Fight will be the first major project for Ayesha's production company, Yardie Girl Productions, and will add to her long list of food-related accolades. The 29-year-old Canadian-American mogul mommy is also the CEO of a wine company, restaurant, and meal kit delivery service and was the first woman to be named a CoverGirl who is not currently pursuing a career as an actress or singer.

Ayesha released her own cookbook, The Seasoned Life: Food, Family, Faith, and the Joy of Eating Well where she shares personally curated recipes, and garnered a number of guest appearances on various cooking shows before starring in her own in October of 2016. Ayesha's Homemade, later called Ayesha's Home Kitchen, was given two six-episode seasons on The Food Network and gave fans an in-depth look at what it was like in the personal and professional lives of the Currys.

Ayesha shared that she has been cooking since she was 12 and told People in 2017 that she had always had an affinity for cooking, because in essence, it is an act of love. She said:

"I am a firm believer that food makes people feel something. It makes people feel good, warm and happy. That's the most rewarding thing for me, when someone takes that first bite and I see a smile. It's probably the same adrenaline rush Steph gets when he plays a game."

She admitted that her current pregnancy has been difficult, but she still makes time to kill it in the culinary world. Ayesha positioned her brand to have an extremely lucrative portfolio, and still makes time to be a great wife and mother. She is proof that women are pretty much superhuman.


Though we don't have an official release date for the new show, I can't wait for Ayesha Curry to heat up the summer with details on how me and my family can get hooked up to win that $100K!

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
