Ahead of the release of her memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Died,” McCurdy reflected on her yearslong friendship with Cosgrove, with whom she starred on the Nickelodeon sitcom from 2007 to 2012.
McCurdy’s new memoir details her years as a child actor on Nickelodeon and the alleged abuse she faced at the hands of her late mother. While her time on set was often negative, McCurdy credited Cosgrove, who had previously starred on the sitcom “Drake and Josh,” for keeping her afloat.
“My friendship with Miranda has been a source of camaraderie and emotional support,” McCurdy writes in her books, calling their relationship “different and special.”
While shooting the final episode of “iCarly,” McCurdy writes, she cried because she didn’t know “what will become of (her) friendship with Miranda.”
“With Miranda, it’s always been so easy,” she writes. “Our friendship is so pure.”
While the two former child stars have taken different career paths, McCurdy said she “can’t wait for (Cosgrove) to read” her memoir, much of which is devoted to their friendship.
“I think she’ll really like it,” she told “ET.”
