What is Jennette McCurdy’s book, ” I’m glad my mom died,” about?
In 2022, Jennette McCurdy released a book, “I’m Glad My Mom Died,” which happens to be the New York Times and International best seller book. The storyline in the book is divided into two parts which describe her life events before and after her mother’s death in 2013.
Jennette McCurdy expressed how her mother, Debra, was mentally and sexually abusive to her. Since Jennette turned six, Debra micromanaged her life, from hair to dress to diet and even showering McCurdy until she was 16.
Debra forced her into auditioning and acting. She never wanted to be an actress, but she did it for her mom’s happiness. Jennette wrote, “She wanted this. And I wanted her to have it. I wanted her to be happy. But now that I have it, I realize that she’s happy and I’m not. Her happiness came at the cost of mine. I feel robbed and exploited. Sometimes I look at her and I just hate her. And then I hate myself for feeling that.”
Jennette further added,
“I know if my mom were alive, I’d still have an eating disorder. It was only distance from her that allowed me to get healthy.”
In the second storyline of the book, Jennette disclosed horrific incidents at the Nickelodeon network. While in the set of the iCarly wardrobe fitting, she was photographed in a bikini without her concern. Also, she was encouraged to drink alcohol and massage by someone she pointed out as “the Creator.” After the cancelation of Sam & Cat, season 2, Nickelodeon offered her $300,000 to zip her mouth about her hideous experiences.
