Jennette McCurdy gets brutally honest in her brand new memoir, I'm Glad My Mom Died.

As reported by Just Jared, things began to take a turn for the worse for McCurdy during the filming of Sam & Cat after she began teasing Grande for what she felt was preferential treatment from her Nickelodeon overseers.
In her new book, she describes Grande as a "burgeoning pop star" who frequently missed filming on her show while McCurdy was expected to "hold the line angrily."

"I booked two features during iCarly that I had to turn down because the iCarly team didn't want to write me out of episodes to shoot them," she explained, noting that Grande was allowed to miss filming, which the producers remedied by them they had character be locked in a box for the episode.

"You are. You're joking," McCurdy wrote, according to the outlet. "So I have to turn down movies while Ariana whistles at the Billboard Music Awards? F--k. That.” McCurdy described her anger and jealousy at Grande being able to continue her music career while McCurdy was back in the studio playing with a box.
But her last straw came one day when Grande arrived to "whistle with excitement because she'd spent the previous night playing charades at Tom Hank's house."
McCurdy describes this as the moment she broke. From that point on, “I didn't like her. I couldn't like her," she reportedly wrote. "I could handle pop star success, but hanging out with Sheriff Woody, with Forrest F------g Gump? This has gone too far.”
"Now it feels like a personal attack every time she misses work," the iCarly graduate continued. "Every time something exciting happens to her, I feel like she stole that experience from me."
McCurdy's memoir is expected to be chock-full of other revelations, including more bombshell moments from her time at Nickelodeon and her complicated relationship with her mother.
The collector's book I'm Glad My Mom Died is available today.
