Jennette McCurdy unpacks her new book, “I’m Glad My Mom Died,” detailing the severe abuse she experienced as a child when asked by Sunny Hostin on “The View”. Jennette was a star of the popular Nickelodeon show, iCarly. But up until now, no one knew the severe abuse she was experiencing behind closed doors.
HOSTIN: “You became very famous. But what no one knew was that, your mom was not only being emotionally abusive, she was being mentally and physically, abusive as well. She showered, you gave you breasts and vaginal exams until you were 17. That part shocked me because I have a 16 year old as I was telling you at the break. And I haven't seen her nude since she was like three. Yeah. She won't. You know, it's because children want that privacy and you were violated in that way, she taught you to have an eating disorder. She exploited you, made you believe that you were nothing without her. She died in 2013 from breast cancer.”
