I want to get married, like the Currys, on some Steph and Ayesha sh*t. I don't know much about sports, but I know that Steph was the real MVP when he shot his shot with his wife of nearly eight years and scored.
Although the couple has been through hell and back over the past few months, met with threats and scrutiny, this power duo is proof that with the right person on your team, you can't lose. Giving us the Love & Basketball vibes we didn't know we needed, Steph and Curry continue to give us all the feels in their constant PDA via social media.
If you were wondering how you, too, can keep your marriage poppin' after nearly a decade, never fear. Ayesha just shared one of the secrets that keep her and her hubby just as in love as the day they met and the truth might surprise you. Here's how Ayesha, along with 4 other celebrities keep the spark lit (and I mean LIT) in their relationships:
Jada Pinkett & Will Smith
On next week's episode of the Red Table Talk, Jada sits down with a throuple to talk about polyamory and even reveals that she once had a threesome. Although it wasn't exactly her cup of tea, Jada confirmed that she's not afraid to get a lil kinky. In an interview with Redbook in 2009, the actress said that the secret to keeping her marriage with actor Will Smith spicy after more than a decade was having the ability to use your imagination from time to time. She explained:
"Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex. Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Be sneaky. Your girlfriend's house at a party. The bathroom! A guest bedroom! Just switch it up. Anything like that can keep it going. Anything it takes to keep the flame alive."
Ayesha & Steph Curry
This past week model/actress Bella Thorne was in tears after Whoopi Goldberg criticized her on an episode of The View for releasing her own nude photos in response to a hacker's threats. While Whoopi advised that young people be more cautious about what they upload to "the cloud", that doesn't stop Ayesha Curry from sending her man some rated-R photos.
According to Ayesha, distance makes the heart grow fonder and she shows that fondness by sending her husband hundreds of risque selfies (from the neck-down only, of course) on a regular basis. Recently, in a promotion for her latest show, she told E! News:
"He won't delete them off of his phone! He's not that secure with his phone so it's actually one of the scariest things in my life."
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
We get it. You're busy. You're tired. It's hard to leave time for romance when life is hitting you at 150 miles per hour at all times. But according to John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, you'll never really "have time". You just have to make it. In an interview with E! News, John Legend said that anything from birthday trips to weeknight dinners can count as quality one-on-one time that you'll find is extremely valuable in the long run.
"You just have to make time for each other, go on little trips like we did for her birthday and go to dinner just the two of you sometimes. You still have to have romance time."
Adrienne & Israel Houghton
Recently, we posted an article that reported that Adrienne Bailon could not go more than 24 hours without some good old Christian-coitus with her husband, Israel Houghton. There's no doubt in our minds that this couple's relationship is poppin' like the fourth of July, and Adrienne says that along with sucking toes and taking her man out on dates, she's also added some spice to her marriage by adding in a special element of sexy.
Adrienne said that before her wedding night, she did a boudoir shoot and hung the enlarged pictures on the walls of their honeymoon suite, but it doesn't have to be a special occasion to employ this spice-inducing method in your relationship.
Oprah & Stedman
The quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and Oprah says that's part of the reason she and her longtime boo Stedman Graham have kept their more than 30-year relationship on fire after all this time. Despite the ability to hire private chefs from around the world, Oprah still makes sure her man has a home-cooked meal every chance she gets.
"Well, I am a really good cook. And the wonderful thing about Stedman is in all the years that I've been cooking for him, no matter what it is — even if it's a piece of toast — like the other day I made an English muffin, and he's like, 'Where did you get this English muffin?' and I'm like, 'It's an English muffin.'"
