'You are a liar and ugly monster': Jennette McCurdy reads out her late mom's heartless email
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: 'I'm Glad My Mom Died' author and iCarly star Jennette McCurdy read one of the most disturbing emails from her abusive late mother on Red Table Talk on Tuesday, September 6. The 30-year-old former Nickelodeon star speaks to co-hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield Norris about "decades of torment, exploitation, and manipulation inflicted by her very own mother" after "years of suffering in silence" on this week's new episode The Facebook Watch original series.
McCurdy reads aloud an email she once got from her mother informing her that she had come across a TMZ photo of her daughter with a male friend. Her mother Debbie McCurdy, died from cancer in 2013. In her new memoir, 'I'm Glad My Mom Died', the former Nickelodeon star recalls her early fame and her previous struggles.
McCurdy read the entire email she received from her mom in which she wrote, "I am so disappointed in you." She continues reading, the heart-breaking lines, "You used to be my perfect little angel, but now you are nothing more than a little—all caps—SLUT, A FLOOZY, ALL USED UP". Adrienne, Jada, and Willow express shock as she continues reading.
McCurdy further reads, "And to think you wasted it on that hideous ogre of a man. I saw the pictures on a website called TMZ. I saw you rubbing his disgusting hairy stomach. I knew you were lying about Colton. Add that to a list of things you are: liar, conniving, evil." She says while reading out the email that she had told her mom she was with a friend, Colton. Debra called her daughter "an ugly monster," in the email and claimed that her sons wanted to disown the former Nickelodeon star.
McCurdy continues reading, "You look pudgier too. It's clear you're eating your guilt. Thinking of you with his ding-dong inside of you makes me sick. Sick! I raised you better than this. What happened to my good little girl? Where did she go and who is this monster that has replaced her? You're an ugly monster now. I told your brothers about you and they all said they disown you just like I do." Debra did not stop there, she went on to write, "We want nothing to do with you. Love, Mom — or should I say Deb since I am no longer your mother? P.S. Send money for a new fridge; ours broke."
The star recently revealed to PEOPLE that she gets along well with her brothers. "I did not know how to find my identity without my mom. And I'm not going to lie, it was very hard to get here. But now I'm at a place in my life that I never would have thought was possible. And I finally feel free," she said.
