‘iCarly’ Star Jennette McCurdy Talks Childhood Trauma In Memoir ‘I’m Glad My Mom Died’

iCarly, one of Nickelodeon’s most recognizable comedies, ended in 2012 after six seasons. Paramount+ later picked up the show in 2021. 

The show continues Carly Shay’s, her brother Spencer’s, and Freddie Benson’s journey now in their 20s.

However, Shay’s sidekick Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy), was nowhere to be seen. The actress’s final televised appearance was in 2018’s The First Lady

The actress will drop her new memoir on Aug. 9, titled I’m Glad My Mom Died, a retelling of the personal traumas she experienced from her mother while working as a young actress. 

Here is what the article states – 

“In I’m Glad My Mom Died (available August 9), McCurdy, best known for playing Sam Puckett on the Nickelodeon series iCarly, looks back at her life and struggles as a former child actor and how her overbearing mother controlled her every move. As a result, she felt constant anxiety, shame, and self-loathing that led to eating disorders, addiction, and a series of unhealthy relationships. The book chronicles how those issues only got worse after her mom died of cancer right as the actress went on to star in the 2013 iCarly spinoff Sam & Cat opposite Ariana Grande. It wasn’t until McCurdy, 30, started therapy and finally stopped acting that she began to take back control of her own life and figure out what she really wants for herself.”
