Check out what the 15-year-old actress had to say: “Youâ€™ve all heard of the fantastic new Nickelodeon show, True Jackson VP, right? Right! Okay. So guess what? I guest starred on True Jackson VP this past week since we have a couple short weeks off of iCarly! WOOHOO!!!!! I had so so so so so (just pretend like the soâ€™s keep going on and on because I canâ€™t fit enough of them) much fun! Now Iâ€™m gonna tell you all about it!!!!!
“The script was great! I had an awesome time playing a very fun character. Iâ€™ve known that I was going to guest star on TJVP for a while now, and I was beyond excited and expected to have a wonderful time, but let me tell you, this past week exceeded my waaaaaaaaay high expectations! The crew was AMAZING. They were all so kind!!! Judging from the iCarly and TJVP crews, Iâ€™m guessing good crews run in the Nickelodeon family. Mr. Gordon and Mr. Kopelman were hilarious and extremely kind. They made me feel so welcome on their set! And the cast! OH THE CAST! Iâ€™d known just about every cast member from promos and events in the past. Ashley [Argota], Keke [Palmer], and Matt [Shively] were already GREAT friends of mineâ€¦ but getting to spend so much time with everyone this past week was too cool!!! Let me tell you a little about everyoneâ€¦”

“THE LIVE AUDIENCE WAS PHENOMENAL!!!! I had butterflies in my stomach before going out in front of the audience, but they evaporated as soon as I took my first stroke (note how I donâ€™t use the word â€™stepâ€™. I will not say anything more. ha.) out onto the set. We did a speed-thru read-thru upstairs (as the audience was loading in to the stage) and everyone hugged me and comforted me because I tend to get very excited in situations like performing. haha. Go figure. Anyways, the audience was FIERCE! They brought such a great energy to the show! I felt like I was on a cloud during the whole nightâ€¦ actually I felt like I was on a cloud during the whole week, but the audience made it feel like it was a really GIGANTIC cloud.
“Ashley Argota! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Double A! Lil Asherz! Everybody, make wayâ€¦ here comes the triple threat, Miss Ashley Argota! Actress, singer, dancer extraordinaire! Ashley is one of the nicest people Iâ€™ve ever met. She is so beautiful, so real, so warm, so helpful, so supportive, so
“Keke Palmer! What a talented girl. Okay, Keke is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out, as good at comedy as she is at drama, as good at singing as she is at acting, as talented at dancing as she is at singing, and as amazing of a person as she is amazing at everything she does. Keke and I choreographed a little dance routine to ‘Single Ladies’ and performed a bit of it for the live audience. That was really fun. Every day, Keke would pick me up and swing me around and hug me. She is such a generous actor and a generous person to match. Her kindness – just like her talent – never ends! Thatâ€™s what I call a star.
“And now for the perfect little cherry story to top my perfect little ice cream sundae storyâ€¦ Saturday morning, while at a Nick promo shoot, I got a phone call from none other than DAVID COOK!!! No, I am not kidding. DAVID COOK! I spoke over the phone with a good friend of his, a little girl who has leukemia. David was spending the day with her. Well, after I finished speaking with her, David himself got on the phone to personally thank me for talking to his friend. The wonderful person David Cook is has been really obvious, both from when I met him in person and from this phone call. To be spending the day with a little girl in need and then to thank me for talking to herâ€¦ wow. That says miles about his character. Now thereâ€™s an American Idol.
“I spent yesterday with possibly the biggest star of them all, my friend Cody! I canâ€™t thank you all enough for the kind messages you posted on my last blog. Your well-wishes, prayers, and nice words obviously came from the heart and I truly appreciate it. Iâ€™m giving your messages to Cody tomorrow and I know heâ€™s going to love them and be so thankful to know that all of you are out there supporting him.”
