Nickelodeon allowed the “sexualized” Victorious scene with Daniella Monet at Dan Schneider’s urging

Former Nickelodeon stars are speaking out against prolific creator and producer Dan Schneider for allegedly forcing the young actors into “sexualized” scenes.

In a new report for Insider, Victorious actress Daniella Monet, 33, claimed that a scene she was uncomfortable with was left in the final cut of an episode, despite her objections to the network.

While Monet doesn’t only blame Schneider, who was the creator, executive producer and writer of Victorious, she also blamed Nickelodeon for featuring sexualized scenes in its live-action shows and for inappropriate behavior occurring on set.

Speaking up: Several actresses, including Daniella Monet and Alexa Nikolas, have said they were abused and forced to film “sexualized” scenes on Nickelodeon shows, including Daniella Monet and Alexa Nikolas, in a new insider exposé directed by Dan Schneider (pictured in 2015 ) were created, produced and written

The actress described how she reached out to the network after being forced to film a scene in which she applied lip gloss while eating a pickle that she felt was too sexual to air on a kid-centric network .

But Nickelodeon executives apparently sided with Schneider and the creative team on Monet, and the scene was included in the episode.

She added that not only would the scene’s leaders have approved, but the standards and practices department would have had to approve it as well.

She attributed some of the overly sexual content to the space of the mostly male writers on the show.

Though she said that Victorious was typically a “very PC, fun, silly, friendly, chilled” place, the occasional overly sexual scene managed to pierce the warm vibe.

“I wish certain things didn’t have to be so sexualized?” she said. ‘Yes. One hundred percent.”

Sexual associations: Alexa Nikolas recalled that tailors forced Jamie Lynn Spears to film a scene in which she was repeatedly sprayed with goo in the face until one shot was roughly equivalent to a “c**shot” — in the words of her male co -Stars – what the setting was was selected; seen in 2015

The insider exposé notes that “none of Schneider’s shows had more than two female writers in their total runs,” while “Zoey had 101 and Drake & Josh had zero.”

It also references a scene Jamie Lynn Spears filmed for her series Zoey 101 — which Schneider created, executive produced, co-wrote, and even guest-starred — in which she had “about the consistency of egg white” splattered on her face.

Her costar Alexa Nikolas recalled that Schneider was not happy with the take and had a crew member cum on her face multiple times.

After Spears caught the goo on her forehead during one take, it started dripping towards her face onto her mouth at that point.

Nikolas recalled that Schneider burst out laughing at the sight, causing other crew members and even Spears’ mother, Lynne Spears, to burst into giggles.

“It’s like a shot,” she recalled of one of her male colleagues saying, before noting that the most sexualized take was the one chosen for the episode.

Inappropriate:

Inappropriate: “We’re talking about a minor,” Nikolas continued. “I think Jamie was 13 and they squirt stuff on her face to make it look a certain way”; Alexa pictured left on Zoey 101

“We’re talking about a minor,” Nikolas continued. “I think Jamie was 13 and they squirt stuff on her face to make it look a certain way.”

Russel Hicks, Nickelodeon’s former president of content and production, denied that anything inappropriate should make its way onto the air.

“Every single thing that Dan has ever done on any of his shows has been carefully reviewed and approved,” he claimed, adding that the standards and practices department read all of the scripts for Schneider’s shows and watched every episode.

The young actors’ parents or carers were also on set during filming.

A source close to Schneider also defended the producer, saying the “goosebumps” sprayed on Spears were green “just like Nickelodeon’s famous slime,” and they claimed that “this episode aired and was seen by millions of people.” and (to our knowledge) not a single viewer ever had second thoughts.’

Last week, Nikolas protested in front of Nickelodeon’s headquarters in Burbank, California.

She told TMZ that she “wants to make Nick safe for kids because, in my personal experience, working on Zoey 101, [I] didn’t feel safe.’

She told Variety: “It shouldn’t be a woman who has to lead the way, it’s the industry itself. … Because a predator will come and go – there will always be a predator. But if they don’t have a safe haven, they can’t really continue this abuse.’

Elsewhere in the lengthy article, Monet – who was 18 when she began filming Victorious – said she was often forced to wear clothes on screen that were “not age appropriate.”

“I wouldn’t even wear any of that today as an adult,” she added.

A writer who worked for Schneider also claimed that whenever an actress was asked to wear bathing suits, he would urge that they be given “whatever is most revealing.”

Jennette McCurdy, who got her start at iCarly before reprising her role in spinoff Sam & Cat with costar Ariana Grande, avoids directly naming Schneider in her best-selling memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died, though she does refer to one character referred to only as The Creator, who is believed to be a tailor.

She said she was subjected to an unwanted massage from The Creator, and she also accused the character of pressuring her into drinking alcohol despite being underage.

He reportedly urged her to try some of his whiskey, claiming he and the cast of Victorious “get drunk together all the time.”

So far, McCurdy hasn’t specified why she only refers to the unnamed character as The Creator in her memoir.
