Ayesha Curry gets Food Network show and Twitter responds
Ayesha Curry, the wife of NBA star Stephen Curry of the Golden Warriors, has landed a cooking show on the Food Network. The working title for Curry's show is "At Home with Ayesha."
Curry, who calls herself a "self-proclaimed" food critic in her Instagram profile, and frequently posts photos of her culinary conquests on the social media app, has made appearances on the network before as a judge on the cooking competition show "Guy's Grocery Games."
She joins a growing number of celebrity cooking show hosts on both the Food Network and its sister network the Cooking Channel, including Hailee Duff, Valerie Bertinelli, Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Trisha Yearwood.
Details on the show's premise are slim, but we're guessing it will be similar to Curry's Ayesha YouTube channel, where she posts videos of herself cooking, and her website, www.littlelightsofmine.com, where she shares recipes and cooking tips.
The show's announcement has put Curry back in the Twitter spotlight with mixed reactions to the show. Most of the tweets reference a recent Twitter debate Curry was inadvertently dragged into regarding body-shaming and slut-shaming.
