Jennette McCurdy is trying really hard to dismiss rumors that there is bad blood between her and her Sam & Cat co-star, Ariana Grande.
Jennette McCurdy told E! that, of course, there was a little drama when Sam & Cat suddenly dissolved.
Jennette McCurdy said, “I just feel that, you know, Ariana and I were and are extremely close and very like-minded in a lot of different ways, and then, sort of, as the show dissolved, everybody wanted to find some sort of hidden meaning in our relationship and some drama.”
Jennette McCurdy said her and Grande butted heads sometimes, but it wasn’t any different than what any two friends that work together all the time might experience. In fact, some of the drama may have been exaggerated, just because that’s what sells.
“Some like drama and I think we butted heads at times but in a very sisterly way,” Jennette McCurdy said. “She knows me so well and I know her so well that I think it was unfortunate that things kind of got misconstrued.”
She added, “There is certainly like a friend dynamic but then once you’re around that person for—I mean, Carly, Sam & Cat—once we didn’t have child labor laws we could work like 16 hours a day so you are around these people constantly and It’s just natural that you’re gonna have ups and downs.”
Jennette McCurdy said she has created strong bonds, despite the head-butting and drama.
She added, “But you bond so much and you’re so close that you can’t go through that experience and…I can’t imagine a world where you would not come out extreme friends. I mean I have bonds with both Miranda Cosgrove and Ariana that are impenetrable.”
