Smith going hard at Ayesha Curry, Skip Bayless leaving and more.But after all these typical rants and drama, you’d expect something big from the host of ESPN’s debate juggernaut.Once again, this week, Molly’s thirst for a boyfriend blew up in her face, which led to some painfully awkward scenes with Jidenna. We’re both Nigerian and from the same tribe, Igbo, so we kind of had that whole, “Hey you, I see you, my brother!
