Jennette McCurdy opens up about her childhood traumas. McCurdy said she was "exploited” as a child actor in Nickelodeon's iCarly, and Sam & Cat.

Sometimes people may have the best intentions but don't know how to do it. There were also cases when they knew what they were doing.

McCurdy, 16 years old, was entering her third year of the hit teen sitcom . There, she made millions of viewers laugh with her comedic character Sam Puckett.

According to the New York Times McCurdy, McCurdy was 30, and she wrote about embarrassing moments in her memoir.

She was photographed in a bikini at a wardrobe fitting, and she was encouraged to drink alcohol by an intimidating figure she calls the Creator.

McCurdy noted that her mother never interjected with her daughter or told her that this was the price of success in showbiz.

McCurdy claims she felt stifled by the network, as they discouraged McCurdy from seeking out other opportunities. Grande did not seem to be subject to these rules.

Ariana, who had just spent the evening playing charades at Tom Hanks’s house, finally got me out of my misery. McCurdy wrote that this was the moment I broke.

Sam & Cat aired only for one season in 2013-2014. After the cancellation of the show, Nickelodeon offered McCurdy $300,000.

McCurdy stated that the offer was to keep her experiences with the network private. McCurdy declined the offer.
