On Monday's all-new Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter, Willow Smith, and mother Adrienne Banfield Norris are traveling to North Carolina to meet with another family of powerful women: the Currys!
Ayesha Curry, a chef and cookbook author who is married to NBA star Stephen Curry, sat down alongside her hubby's mother, Sonya Curry, sister, Sydel Curry-Lee, and future sister-in-law, Callie Rivers, to chat with the Smith women about everything from mental health to jealousy in relationships.
In ET's exclusive sneak peek, Ayesha and Willow get candid about their experiences with anxiety, as Jada asks her daughter, "What are some of the things that you do? What are some of your techniques to deal with your anxiety?"
"Recently I have been, like, I just get really frustrated and I just feel like there is so much energy. I get frustrated and then in my head I feel manic," Willow explains. "So like, lately I’ve just been dropping down and just [doing push ups]."
"I have anxiety too, really bad, to the point where I actually take medication for it," Ayesha reveals. "And I think it’s something that everybody, in some way, has moments. I think open communication and putting your feelings out on the line, that helps me a lot, [and] just letting someone know, 'I’m kind of having an anxiety attack right now.'"
In another sneak peek from the episode, Ayesha opens up about how she deals with the attention that her husband receives from female fans.
“Stephen is very nice by nature and he’s very talkative,” she explains. “Everything is always very friendly and sometimes to the point where I’m like, I’m a grown woman so I’ll just insert myself. I’ll be like, ‘Hello. How are you doing?'”
"I’m OK with it now and obviously, you know, the devil is a liar," Ayesha continues, though she admits, "The ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting. But for me, I honestly hate it."
