Ariana Grande Says Goodbye To CatBy: Lacy Langley - July 14, 2014
Ariana Grande confirmed on Sunday that the Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat, that she starred in with Jennette McCurdy, has been canceled and that Cat is going away for good.
July 17th’s episode will be considered the season finale, though it is only technically the 36th episode.
The show was abruptly put on “hiatus” back in April after scandalous pics of Jenny McCurdy in her delicates were leaked online. Then there were rampant rumors that Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy were feuding over each other’s salaries.
Although, that rumor was rebuffed by Ariana Grande quickly.
“The rumors circulating about our contracts and our salary not being equal are absolutely ridiculous and false. I don’t know who’s putting these idiotic quotes out there but I thought I’d straighten it out and try to end this nonsense.”
Included in her lengthy statement was a flat out denial that salary had anything to do with the feud or the “hiatus”.
“As far as the show goes, I don’t know what’s happening because I’m not directly involved with the problem but I just wanted to address this one rumor in particular because I am NOT making more money than my costar, nor do I think I should be,” she continued. “So we can all move on and get out of our heads that this was a money thing cause I don’t play like that at all. I am, have always been and always will be about equality and fairness.”
Ariana Grande hit Facebook with a lengthy goodbye to Nickelodeon and the character she played for so long.
