I Think She’s Very Courageous To Tell Her Story. Josh Peck’s New Book, Friend Jennette McCurdy’s
“I’m Glad My Mom Died” author Jeanette McCurdy, a former Nickelodeon alumna, is pleased.
The star of “Drake & Josh” recently said exclusively to Page Six, “I think she is extremely brave to discuss her story and to be as honest as she is.”
Peck posted a sweet Instagram snapshot of him cuddling with McCurdy last week along with the caption, “The book that my friend Jennette wrote has just been published.”
I think her wit and wisdom are two of her best talents, and as soon as I was able to read the book, I did so because I was genuinely interested in how she told her story.
As its title suggests, the “iCarly” star’s recently released memoir covers the difficult relationship she had with her mother, who controlled her every move and helped her daughter become a child celebrity. Sam McCurdy, the actor from “Sam & Cat,” lost his mother to cancer in 2013 when he was just 21 years old.
In a sweet Instagram post last week, Peck cuddled up to McCurdy and said, “My friend Jennette authored a book, and it’s out today.”
Her boldness, humor, and thoughtfulness are unmatched by many. Place your order right away! The 35-year-old actor is currently seen as a Rabbi who assists a child with his bar-mitzvah in the musical film “13: The Musical.” The musical, which also stars Debra Messing and Rhea Perlman, is an adaptation of a well-known Broadway play.
For someone who started performing stand-up at the age of 10 at Caroline’s on Broadway, Peck’s own bar-mitzvah seemed appropriate.
He laughed and continued, “I guess it’s no surprise that I’m still in rehab today.” I had to perform for at least 45 minutes at my bar-mitzvah, doing a mix of songs, a duet with my mother, and stand-up comedy.
