The former child actress Jennette McCurdy has been open about her acting career. She started her acting career when she was only eight years old with shows like Mad TV and Law and Order: SVU. She was deeply affected by her upbringing. Being grown up around a controlling mother was tough. Jennette McCurdy’s mom was determined to make her the youngest star child was quite tough. McCurdy got her career’s big break in 2007 when she was chosen in the cast of Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” as a plucky tomboy Sam Puckett. The show and especially McCurdy’s plucky tomboy character with confrontational confidence and one-liners was a massive hit within the young demographic network. But offscreen, McCurdy was struggling. She was struggling with an abusive mother, the eating disorders, alcoholism, and the politics within the industry, all took a toll on her.
Jennette McCurdy’s first memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Died” is out now. After this release people want to know what Jennette McCurdy mom do to her. She has used some dark humour to explain the traumas of early fame she discovered in this industry as she never wanted to join. It was all because of her abusive mother, Debbie. Jennette McCurdy mom died of breast cancer in 2013, when McCurdy was 21. Before dying Debbie allegedly carried her daughter into compromising situations. Instead of giving love and support, McCurdy says her mother instead pushed her into eating disorders and forced administered breast and genital examinations, to check for cancerous lumps upto 16 years of age.
Now 30, McCurdy wanted to tell her own story through her memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Is Dead” ($25). The title seems abrasive and it’s meant to be. “I’m glad my mom died,” says Jennette McCurdy.” She says in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, “I stand by the title as I truly believe in it. It was difficult for me to come up with the terms. And the topics that are tough to come to terms more often are the things that needless to be said the most.” Although she had grief, McCurdy was finally able to start her life in her own way.
To process the trauma in her life, McCurdy chooses writing as a way for speaking back to her mother’s influence. She told Buzzfeed that her mother would always say that writers gain weight and dress poorly. My mom does not even deserve her pedestal. My mom has always emotionally, mentally, and physically abused me. It will impact me forever throughout my life.” After her recovery, McCurdy is finally feeling hopeful about her future. Her memoir is already making news as it becomes number-one best seller, but most importantly, McCurdy feels empowered by the choices and decisions she took in life. She says she has not faced any eating disorder symptoms for years now and she feels so free from those barriers. Many people still often talk about how tough they feel it is to overcome their problems. Further she hopes this book will provide some sort of inspiration for those out there who really need it.
