California native Jennette McCurdy embarked upon an acting career at the tender age of 8, appearing on the sketch-comedy show ‘MADtv’ in 2000. Guest spots in dozens of TV series and movies followed, but it wasn’t until she was cast in 2007 as lovable sidekick Sam Puckett in ‘iCarly’ that she truly made her mark. Her five-year stint on the Nickelodeon hit was followed by a starring role in its equally successful spinoff, ‘Sam & Cat.’ McCurdy’s country-pop career began in 2010 with the release of EP ‘Not That Far Away.’ Her self-titled debut album came out in 2012, but the actress-singer was dropped by her record label the same year. Seemingly unfazed by a 2014 scandal involving sexy selfies, McCurdy continues to pursue a music career by sharing videos of herself performing covers that show off her beautiful voice.
After it was revealed earlier today that Nickelodeon had officially put an end to the TV show 'Sam & Cat,' Ariana Grande took to Twitter this afternoon to post a thank you letter to the fans of the show, series creator Dan Schneider and the cast and crew.
Conspicuously absent from the letter, however, was co-star Jennette McCurdy's name.
On Saturday night (July 12), a new episode of 'Sam & Cat' titled '#WeStealARockstar' aired on Nickelodeon, which was the next-to-last episode of the show that had been produced. When the Season 1 finale '#GettinWiggy' airs this Thursday, July 17, all signs point that it will be the show's final episode, according to TV Series Finale.
Remember Tamagotchis, those adorable pocket-sized virtual pets that we all had growing up? Well, they're back in a big way! Not only is there a Tamagotchi app, called Tamagotchi L.i.f.e Tap & Hatch, but the brand has also expanded into a clothing line -- and Jennette McCurdy is the brand ambassador!
This whole Jennette McCurdy vs. Nickelodeon drama has legs. Rumors have been circulating about the future of 'Sam & Cat,' the show on which singer Ariana Grande stars opposite of McCurdy, who reportedly has a salary dispute with the bosses. Grande, a classy dame who never comments on gossip, broke her own rule, and spoke out.
Is 'Sam & Cat' coming to an end? Whisperings of behind the scenes drama between Nickelodeon and stars Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande may cause the network's most popular show to end after the show's 40-episode first season.
Last night, the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards assembled some of kids' and teens' favorite stars as part of their annual slime-fest tradition. Winning this year for "Favorite TV Show" was Nick's own 'Sam & Cat' series starring Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande, respectively. As Grande walked up on stage to accept the award for the show, people couldn't help but ponder: Where's Sam?
Uh-oh. Jennette McCurdy might be joining the likes of Dylan Sprouse and Vanessa Hudgens in the line of former child stars having racy photos leak. The Nickelodeon actress -- who currently stars on 'Sam & Cat' with Ariana Grande -- began trending on Twitter, but it wasn't for the right reasons. Suggestive photos of the actress in lingerie immediately started popping up all over the social media site.
