How Ayesha Curry Started Out As An Actress Then Worked Her Way To A $10M Net Worth

Ayesha Curry first met her husband when the pair were in the same church youth group as teenagers, as SportsNet once reported. But they didn’t start dating until Ayesha was out in Hollywood trying to make it as an actress — and Steph Curry came to visit. At that time, she was more well-known than he was. Now, of course, the tables have turned — and Steph Curry is one of the best-known (and wealthiest) players in the NBA. But don’t think that Ayesha Curry has contented herself with simply being an NBA wife. On the contrary: her career as a chef, influencer, and television host has made her quite a formidable force in Hollywood, as well. What’s more, she supports her husband’s professional endeavors and has played an integral role in helping him grow his brand.

And that’s just the start of many...
