Jennette McCurdy Discusses 'The Moment I Broke' While Working on 'Sam & Cat' With Ariana Grande

Jennette McCurdy was "broken" by an incident involving Tom Hanks while working with Ariana Grande. 

"Sam & Cat" is a spinoff of "iCarly" and "Victorious," and in an excerpt of her new memoir, McCurdy claims Nickelodeon treated her differently than Grande while filming. 

According to reports, the 29-year-old singer of the song "Sweetener" was allowed to pursue other endeavors outside of the children's show, but McCurdy, 30, alleges she was not. 

Ariana's excitement about spending the night before playing charades at Tom Hanks' house finally undid McCurdy, as she recounts in "I'm Glad My Mom Died," a memoir published by the New York Times. 

Both "iCarly" and "Sam & Cat," which debuted in 2013 and 2014, had their original runs came to an end in 2012. 

The network offered McCurdy $300,000 in exchange for her silence about her time at Nickelodeon, but she refused the money.

A Nickelodeon representative declined to comment for the Times.
