Kel Mitchell Calls Jennette McCurdy ‘Courageous’ For Releasing Her Memoir

Kel Mitchell has called iCarly alum Jennette McCurdy courageous for her bravery in sharing her experiences and challenges in her memoir. Mitchell went on to state that people have different stories, and the manner in which they want to get out their stories is definitely important. McCurdy had a lot to reveal in her memoir, and Mitchell is proud of her courage in going so.

The Chicago-born actor recalled certain times his colleague had to face certain difficult situations alone. He remembered an instance where McCurdy faced a tough situation when her mom passed. Kel Mitchell called Jennette McCurdy courageous because he loves hearing her tell her story as she draws strength from it.

Mitchell, who starred in the Nickelodeon shows All That, Kenan & Kel, Game Shakers and the Nickelodeon movie Good Burger, and met McCurdy when he guest starred on Sam & Cat, didn’t just call Jennette McCurdy courageous for nothing. Her book had lots of revelations that one wouldn’t imagine the 30-year-old writer and actor had to go through. McCurdy’s book analyzed the complicated relationship she had with her mother, Debra. The actress’s mother was quite controlling before she died of cancer when Jennette clocked 21.

Another reason Mitchell possibly called Jenette McCurdy courageous was when she turned down $300,000 to never talk about her experience at Nickelodeon. McCurdy contributed immensely to Nickelodeon to get such treatment from someone she referred to as “The Creator,” widely speculated to be the same person who produced the shows Mitchell and McCurdy worked on.

In the exclusive interview with Page Six, Mitchell revealed that one of his best memories at Nickelodeon was his collaboration with McCurdy. He stated that his author friend was super awesome on the set of Sam & Cat. Mitchell disclosed that he got to hang out and have fun with his wife and McCurdy. The actor left showbiz for good after seeking therapy in 2010, and Kel Mitchell was fully in support of McCurdy’s courageous move.

According to the actor and youth pastor, it’s not good to put yourself in a box. It’s wiser to go for different things, just like McCurdy is gradually transitioning into an amazing author.

“I think that’s awesome. Never just hold yourself in a box. Do many things. Go after many different things,” says the youth pastor and author, who is readying the release of his second book, Prank Day.

“I love seeing that: actors becoming authors, becoming pastors,” he adds, “all these different things.”

Of all the jobs Mitchell has taken, co-hosting Deliciousness alongside Tiffani Thiessen (Saved By The Bell), Angela Kinsey and Tim Chantarangsu might be his favorite to date.  “I’m loving this journey. I like to find the joy in every moment and this is very fun. You get to sit on the couch and just crack up at all these food fails,” the Good Burger actor says. 

“I love watching that show and I’m all about food. Because of Good Burger, I get free burgers and all kinds of stuff. So it just kind of works!”

The Season 3 of Mitchell’s show, Deliciousness, on the other hand, is available to stream on and Paramount+.

iCarly (the original and the new series), Game Shakers, Kenan & Kel and All That are available to stream on Paramount+.
