Jennette McCurdy says she was photographed in a bikini getting drunk on alcohol as a child actress

Jennette McCurdybest known for her role in Ah Carly“, reveals new abuse she was forced to endure as an actor as a child.

In with The newspaper “New York Times profile posted on Wednesday promoting her new memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Is Dead,” the outlet says McCurdy writes in her book that she was once photographed in a bikini while trying on a Nickelodeon wardrobe by an (unnamed) intimidating figure who also encouraged drink alcohol again. McCurdy was a teenager when she worked online.

It’s unclear if her mother Debra, who died in 2013 of breast cancer, was present during this particular incident, but according to excerpts paraphrased by the Times, she probably wouldn’t have intervened on her child’s behalf.

Obviously, she inspired her daughter that such cases are the price of fame.

“Everyone wants what you have,” McCurdy recalls, as her mother told her.

This wasn’t the only insult McCurdy received on Nickelodeon. She also wrote that she assumed she would get her own “iCarly” spin-off on the network, but ended up landing a co-star spot in “Sam & Cat,” in which she paired up with future pop sensation Ariana. Grande.

According to a Times profile, McCurdy wrote that Nickelodeon prevented her from taking other career opportunities during her tenure at Sam & Cat. However, this rule did not apply to the Grande.

“What finally upset me was that Ariana came in whistling with excitement because she had spent the previous evening playing charades at Tom Hanks’ house,” McCurdy recalls in the memoir. “That was the moment I broke down.” The actress also claims that after Sam & Cat was canceled in 2014, she turned down a $300,000 offer not to speak publicly about her time at Nickelodeon. (The network declined to comment for the Times.)

McCurdy says in her memoirs that her pursuit of acting was done solely to please her mother. Debra (whose own parents didn’t want her into acting) got her to start auditioning for roles at age six. Debra seemed to display manipulative behavior when her daughter didn’t get a job.

In an excerpt from her memoirs, published Entertainment Weekly, McCurdy recalls sitting in a baby seat in her mom’s car after being unable to find a job as a child because she couldn’t cry on cue during an audition.

McCurdy writes about the mixed feelings she had about turning down the job and tried to express to her mother that she didn’t want to act anymore because it made her feel “uncomfortable”.

McCurdy described her mom’s face in response to her quitting smoking “like she just ate a lemon. It’s twisted in such a way that it scares me.”

“You can’t quit!” she sobs. “This was our chance! It was oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Then her mother slammed her hand on the steering wheel, accidentally hitting the horn. Mascara runs down her cheeks… Her tantrum scares me and demands to be taken care of.”

McCurdy explains that she tried to defuse the situation by telling her mom “whatever” and offering to listen to a song her mom liked. McCurdy said that as soon as the song started, her mother began to sing along “dizzily”, “her mood changed”.

McCurdy has also spoken openly in the past about how her mother sexual abuse re. McCurdy told People last year that Debra “insisted on having a vaginal and breast exam” until she was 17 and “never let her shower alone.”

“Only the distance from her allowed me to recover,” McCurdy told People at the time.
