Where? iCarly came to an end in 2012, she moved on to a role in Sam & CatIn which she was opposite Ariana Grande. This was an upsetting experience for Jennette, who felt Ariana received preferential treatment. Jennette claims that Ariana was often allowed to take time off, which required Jennette work longer hours. Jennette felt so frustrated that the show was cancelled after only one season.

By this point, Jennette was fed up with acting, having been consumed by the “frustration and rage” that had accumulated since she started auditioning, at the insistence of her mother, at the age of six. However, Jennette’s mother wouldn’t let her quit acting, so she coped by drinking, doing drugs and binging. 

Jennette said she did not know where to go for help, and that her troubles were “in the sad silence my own death.” She also shared that she was unsure who to call. “My mom was very explicit,” she said. It is something that we can be grateful for. We have been doing this our entire lives.
