‘Sam & Cat’ Cancelled? Jennette McCurdy’s Pics Threaten Show

Wed, April 2, 2014 1:55pm EDT by 128 Comments 168,398 Article Views

Uh oh! Jennette McCurdy’s selfie scandal has Nickelodeon on the brink of canceling ‘Sam & Cat’. The hit series, which also stars Ariana Grande, is in trouble, after Jennette’s racy photos were leaked in March. Keep reading to find out if the show is canceled!

Jennette McCurdy is not having the best year ever. After nearly nude selfies were leaked online, the Nickelodeon starlet skipped out on the Kids’ Choice Awards because she was upset with the network. Now, she’s reportedly feuding with co-star Ariana Grande and Nick might pull the plug on Sam & Cat.

Nickelodeon Canceling ‘Sam & Cat’ After Jennette McCurdy’s Racy Pics?

Poor Jennette! After dealing with the public humiliation of nearly naked photos being leaked, the starlet is on the verge of unemployment.

According to the New York Daily News, Nickelodeon is threatening to cancel hit series Sam & Cat, in light of Jennette’s recent scandal.

“The future of Sam & Cat is hanging by a silky thread after sultry selfies shot by one of the show’s thong-clad stars, Jennette McCurdy, were leaked online last month,” the newspaper reports.

Production on the kids’ sitcom has halted and the show has yet to be renewed for a second season, despite its huge success.

This news is shocking, as Jennette’s series is a big hit among her young fans with more than 4 million viewers, but it comes as no surprise, as the young actress recently bashed Nickelodeon on Twitter, as HollywoodLife.com reported. After tweeting fighting words, Jennette took to her Twitter again, saying, “My previous tweet has nothing to do with pics leaked,” adding, “It has to do with how Nickelodeon treated me. That’s all. Thanks for the love.”

Her fans certainly are sticking by her side, but is Ariana Grande? The Daily News goes on to say that Jennette is not fond of Ariana, who won the award for Favorite Actress at the Kids’ Choice Awards. “McCurdy, 21, has also been feuding with her co-star, Ariana Grande, 20, and others at Nickelodeon.”

We have to wonder if Ariana consulted Jennette for advice after she happened to be at the center of a recent nude photo scandal, which turned out to be fake.

Nickelodeon insists that Jennette’s racy pics have nothing to do with the rift: “The photos caused no issues between McCurdy and the network, and we have the utmost respect for her.”

Jennette McCurdy Mad About Money?

Despite Jennette’s X-rated selfies, TMZ is reporting that her troubles with Nickelodeon are actually all in the name of money.

“Jennette McCurdy’s beef with Nickelodeon is strictly about the almighty dollar and how she makes less than her Sam & Cat co-star Ariana Grande,” the site reports, also noting Jennette’s recent tweet, after she was a no show at the Kids’ Choice Awards.

“McCurdy’s dissatisfaction is rooted in her paycheck, the site continues. “We’re told the pint-sized star is pissed that Grande makes way more money than her and she’s been trying to renegotiate her deal.”

TMZ also notes that Jennette has no problem with Ariana, and is just upset with the network. Whatever the outcome of Sam & Cat, we hope that Jennette and Ariana can still be friends!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Nickelodeon will cancel Sam & Cat? And what do you think the reason is — sexy selfies or money?

Just because Jennette Muccurdy posted some half naked pics,doesn’t mean they have to take off sam and cat!They could just take off Jennette and keep Ariana and she could find someone else to be her roomate!!!!it’s not fair that they take off Sam and cat because of her!Just because Jennette did something bad and stupid.doesn’t mean Ariana Grande has to suffer for her actions!!!They could just rename the show.I have a question for Jennette,Did nick split up iCarly because of you too!!!!!!Why did you have to ruin my favorite tv show!!!!!!!I hate you!I love you Ariana!

If they took off Jennette, then there would be no point of Sam & Cat, since it’s called SAM & Cat, but they shouldn’t have cancelled it, it was Nick’s only good show left that they had

This is stupid!!! She has a frign bikini! Not like no one hasn’t seen someone with one right?.. Like wtf she can do what she wants and they should stop the show sam and cat over this! Let them be!! I don’t think neither did any thing wrong nickelodeon is going to hard on them even for Ariana!! Maybe Nickelodeon should get some help because less people r gonna go on it because of the problem! I was a big fan of the show I bet many people r mad that they r canceling it.. Why don’t they let the kids choose and nickelodeon frign stop doing this to kids because people make mistakes and if u can’t forgive them Then why should I go on nick again?

That’s so freaking stupid! The media freaks out when Jennette is in a bathing suit or is taking private pictures of herself but does nothing when Ariana dresses like a slut and tries to be sexy. Get over yourself, they are growing up. Leave both of them alone and let them live their life.

No surprise that the show is cancelled. After Jennette called Ariana a “selfish leech” in June it was clear that this was the end.

I don’t think the pics are the reason. Jennette became upset when the schedule for S&C had to be adapted all the time to match with Ariana’s music activities, what Jennette considered as special privileges for Ariana. The accusation about unequal payment, the no-show at the KCA and the “selfish leech” tweet did the rest. In the end the situation was unworkable.

alright… not any private parts are showing, are there…. no, of course not… just in her bikini…now tell me what’s wrong with that… you guys at Nickelodeon take things way too seriously…. honestly if you guys cancel the shows i DEFINITELY will stop supported you guys…. not Miss McCurdy or Miss Grande because i always and forever will support them… it’s you guys at Nickelodeon i wiil stop supporting…………………… come on you guys… just because someone takes pictures in their bikinis DOES NOT mean they want to go into porn…. may i say as nicely as possible, you guys at Nickelodeon are just idiots….

I really pray that they don’t end this show because its such a hit and very funny. If they do end it, they’re gonna go down hill big time. Please don’t do this Nickelodeon, you guys are better than Disney Channel they lost there viewers a long time ago, don’t be that person please. I can’t believe they are ending this show over something so stupid. Okay her photos were leaked, we get it Nickelodeon but that doesn’t mean you end the show over one person, seriously. They’ll be sorry, very sorry… I love this show a lot even though I’m 17 I stopped watching Disney Channel ever since That’s So Raven ended. Now I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I think this show is a big hit and full of laughs I just wish it wasn’t ending. This show must go on, please Nickelodeon don’t end it over that.

Just because Jenette made a stupid decision does not mean the fans have to be punished. Like Jenette said it was only for one person. Once the show is done with the person who runs the show will regret it.

Well Buck, don’t know what country you live in, but in America you are free to date whom ever you like. Furthermore, most white girls, enjoy getting “bedded” by black guys. They just keep it hidden from their Nazi parents. Have a great day.
