Ariana Grande: No Longer “Cat” On Nickelodeon

By: Lacy Langley - July 13, 2014

Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy are parting ways after extensive rumored feuding on the set of their Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat. The show has been canceled, though it showed great promise to become a Nickelodeon staple.

The show followed Ariana Grande (Cat) and Jennette McCurdy (Sam) as they become roommates and begin their own babysitting service. The characters are pulled from other hit Nickelodeon shows. Ariana Grande’s Cat is from the show Victorious. Jennette McCurdy’s Sam is from the immensely popular iCarly.

Nickelodeon ordered an impressive 40 episodes of Sam & Cat after just four episodes had aired. The show was on target to be a major hit for a network that doesn’t suffer from a shortage of major hits.

That’s when the nude photos of Jennette McCurdy were leaked online. Then the show announced a hiatus in April.

Since Ariana Grande has supposedly been feuding with her co-star and the shows executives over salary negotiations, the plug has been pulled on the whole project.

“Nickelodeon will not be producing more episodes of Sam & Cat,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “We are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best.”

Ariana Grande took to Facebook to air her goodbyes to the show and her character.

Jennette McCurdy has been noticeably absent from commenting on social media, just as she was noticeably absent from the Kids’ Choice Awards in March amid the rumored feud with Ariana Grande.

Best of luck to both Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy in their new paths, wherever they may lead.

    Why are they calling private pictures of a girl in a bra and panties (that were not intended to ever be seen by the public but were leaked out by an ex) “nudes”? What a way to drum up controversy. Her underwear was no more revealing than a bikini would be, she wasn’t even wearing a thong or a g-string. In order for it to be called a nude shot, she would have to be naked in some way, she wasn’t even topless.
