Jennette McCurdy ‘Had A Bad Fake Friend’

jennette-pantless-cleavage-16Jennette McCurdyfake friends‘ essay on Twitter: I actually wrote something about the topic of fake friends a while back but it was never published! Here it is, my dear..

Letting Go of Someone The title of this article sounds like I’m writing about coping with the death of a loved one. Rest assured, it won’t be that morbid. Sorry I’m bad at naming things..

This article is about knowing when to let go of a bad ‘friendship.’ There seem to be a lot of articles floating around the web right now that provide tips for ditching this ambiguous ‘trouble friend’, so I wanted to provide my take on the matter, with a very personal example.

I had this ‘friend’. We had fun together in the first few months of our friendship. We ate at cool restaurants that she wanted to eat at, went to fun amusement parks and rode the rides she wanted to ride, and had sleepovers every couple of weeks where we would watch movies she wanted to watch.

I enjoyed her company because she was fun and energetic, but I had some reservations about how much I could trust her because she seemed to be a leech for drama and gossip..

Who do YOU think Jennette is talking about?

..I decided the good outweighed the bad, so I continued hanging out with her for a few months until our friendship slowly fizzled out. Fast forward to a year or so later and we were back on the map as friends. Not those first tier friends who tell each other everything and who would jump in front of a bus for each other, but solid second tier friends I would say. I’m not even sure how we fell back into being friends. It just sort of… happened.

Before I know it, we were back to hanging out… doing exactly what this girl wanted to do. I felt like every time I hung out with her I was in quicksand. Being around her took my identity because everything in her world became just that… ‘Her world’.

It was really starting to bug me. I took a step back and was met with questions from her end: “Why aren’t we better friends?” “What happened to our friendship?” “Where did you go?” “Did I do something wrong?”

Well, (insert name here), here are the answers to your questions… We aren’t better friends because being friends with you takes the “better” out of me. In fact, I might possibly be the worst version of myself when I’m around you.

As for what happened to our friendship, it faded once through happenstance and it is happening this time through my stance. I’m standing up for myself. I’m not playing your games, letting you manipulate me, and succumbing to your twisted perception of reality.

Where did I go? As far away from you as I can get. You won’t be hearing from me anymore because sweetheart, being a friend to you was doing so much more for you than it was doing for me. You sucked the life right out of me, and I want my life back.

Did you do something wrong? Yes and no. I’m not sure whether you intentionally did something wrong or not, because I have always been a little unclear on what exactly your intentions are. But you did do something wrong in the way you did not treat me right. You disrespected me, disregarded me, and made me feel small by having to always make yourself seem so big.

So for these sincere reasons, I am officially dropping you as a friend. If I see you, I won’t turn the other way and run (even though I want to). Instead, I’ll just smile and end the conversation as quickly as possible, because no offense, but I don’t want any of you rubbing off on me. Actually, that’s pretty offensive. Oh well.

    Says the fake bitch that made out with and sent underwear pics to that B ball player she claims she didn’t like than dissed the guy publicly months later for no reason but to get attention for herself.

    Realty check Jennette…You are the fake one.

  • guest

    Public fueds with The ball player,Ariana/Nick and now this new friend.This seems to be her way of getting attention.

  • Zaina777

    It was Carly when she kissed Freddie behind Sam’s back. What a bitch. Stealing her man from her…seriously though this girl has a lot of drama in her life it at least that’s what it seems like.

  • TbhJenna

    Jennette is really fake and slutty or at least tries to be. she also is a fake lds. But she is talking about Ariana here..the queen of selfishness and fakeness.

  • Marina And My Diamonds



    A girl we don’t know?

  • laura

    Why are all these Nickelodeon and Disney stars always causing so much drama? It’s getting old, to be honest.

    • lec

      They are essentially raised in a situation where they are praised for their dramatic antics on TV and develop these personas. That probably seeps into their every day lives as well. They don’t feel right unless they are getting attention.

      • honesty

        This is very true.

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      Nickelodeon used to have NO drama… now they are the ones with the spotlight on them and Disney is becoming irrelevant hahah funny how the tables have turned.

      • laura

        Hmm yeah now you mention it.. It’s been awfully quiet about the Disney stars. Won’t be long though, I guess. It’s Hollywood after all.

  • Ashley

    Damn. If it’s about Ariana, more power to Jennette. I love when someone puts her on blast and tells the world how fake she is because truthfully, she really is. Always playing the victim card and never owning up to her actions.

    • Garcie

      How do you know she’s fake? You don’t know the person or how Jennette treated her in return. The girl could have just been a real bitch, a lot of people are.

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    Okay wait… Everyone knows im a pretty big Ariana Grande stan, but I do think this is about Ariana….

    Not gonna lie, she has a huge personality and I do think she is egotistical and thinks the world revolves around her. but not in a bad way… but in a oblivious way in which she doesnt even realize it, but that’s just how she acts.

    Where Jennette has it wrong is… “made me feel small by having to always make yourself seem so big.” UMM but that is the reality… SHE IS BIG, and you are small. Especially as of now. Maybe not back then — but there is no denying that Ariana is HUGE as of the last three months.

    • Zaina777

      How would she ignore her though…?
      Don’t they work together? I honestly don’t think that this is about Ariana given the circumstances. Also, aren’t they best friends she never stated this this girl in her essay was her best friend.

  • Emma Stone

    She’s so overdramatic, like calm the fuck down. You’re an adult not a 13 year old girl. Why does this need to be posted online? Can she not just send it to the person instead of posting in on the internet being shady and looking for attention.

  • honesty

    This is rude and childish. Whoever it’s about.

  • Lily

    What the everloving fuck is this middle-school bullshit? You’re a grown ass woman!

  • a

    How hard is it to ask “Maybe we should do/watch/talk about something I like?” Like, if she just went along with it then the issue is kind of her own fault.

  • hahsvsg

    Ariana can get away with calling her fans asshiles and heartless yet Jeanette posts something not including a name and doesn’t call the person out of their name like Ariana does and she’s called immature, drama, stupid, slut etc… You are all fucked up seriously.

    • yup

      I agree with everything you said.

    • honesty

      Huh? When did Ari do that?

      • Kaitlyn

        She didn’t

        • honesty

          Yeah, that’s what I thought. Haha!!

    • Me

      You missed the fact that those “fans” have had no manners at all and ruthlessly denigrate someone for no reason at all. It is even her birthday in HIS sake. THAT IS fucked up. People should show some respect.

      While Marilyn MAY have had a troubled life, it is NOT cool or very mature to go and judge her if you do not know her personally or know the whole truth about her private life.

  • Maggie

    Really? this sounds like a diary page of a character from a cheesy high school chick flick with a bad plot.

  • Maggie

    Also I thought she was writing an article about knowing when to let go of a friend, not an open letter to that friend…

  • Matt

    This reads like Facebook drama. I feel like this is rude though. If you’re going to complain about people online for the whole world to see at least say who it’s about. Don’t just give half the story. Nosey people with no life, like me, would like to know the rest.

  • Kaitlyn

    Ariana has been too busy to even hang out with Jennette this much. None of this sounds like Ariana.

  • Kaitlyn

    Also, now that I think about it this sounds like someone who was using Jennette for fame. Ariana and Jennette have known each other for a very long time and this sounds really relatively recent and this person was just pumping her for information in a world they didn’t live in.

  • Austin Coggins

    Ariana and Jennette are friends, but Jennette had a so called friend that made her depressed and needed to be happy. I understand Jennette and I love you.
