Drake Bell Regrets Twitter Rant After Being Ghosted By Josh Peck

Bell spoke candidly about how hurt he was after not being invited to the wedding, and also expressed his regret for making his frustrations public during a Facebook Live chat on Saturday, July 29.

"We've been together 18 years, Josh and me, me and Josh. We've been so close, it was just one of those things where you know, I'd been talking to him, and he's been telling me about the engagement. And then I saw on social media, the wedding, and I didn't hear about it. So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, 'You didn't even tell me?! I had to find out on social media?' And then you're like, 'You know what!? Fine!’” Bell, 31, explained to Entertainment Tonight during the Facebook Live chat. “And then I'm like, wait, I probably shouldn't have done that.”

I work in music in a high level position, and I have a few Drake Bell stories.

Drake has been dropped by every manager he's hired. Nobody wants to work with him, and the more his career went through the downward spiral, he hired shittier bottom feeder managers. Even then, those managers dropped him too. He is nuttier than squirrel shit.

When he was about to make his second record on Universal, he told his A&R guy that he wanted none other than Beatles producer George Martin to produce his record. He would accept no other producer and refused to record anything without him. Some might say this was a ploy to get dropped from his record label. Others might say his delusions of grandeur were cocaine fueled.

One other story: Drake was on tour as a support act playing sheds and arenas. He really wanted to appear edgier than his counterparts to the young kids coming to see the concert. So what does he do? He projects images on a backdrop of the Nuremberg stadium with the swastika exploding, footage of the Vietnam war carpet bombing, and a few other clips of things young kids wouldn't get but their parents would. That was the beginning of the end for Drake's career.

R19 he doesn't seem to like being a pop star, he just loves pop music. Maybe therein lies the problem? It's also probably why he acts and does comedy and a million other things too, because he's too smart to commitmtthe pop game the way it should be and so unfortunately can't draw like the robotic puppet stars can.

He was raised in showbiz so it's easy to see why he went that route career-wise, but there are other options. He's so good with little kids, would have made a great music teacher for kindergarteners.

What's so funny is that these two clowns went through a similar nasty breakup 10 years ago, but no-one remembers because no-one cares about 21 year olds having out drama if they aren't obscenely rich & connected and because evidence of said drama is now scrubbed out.

I only remember this happening at all because the new wedding drama flashed me back. This went down around late 2006, and I believe Josh tiring of the 'kid's show'/slapstick comedy stigma of his Nick days and running off to shoot that junky movie THE WACKNESS were the stated grounds for the original beef (who knows if that was the real truth). I read of them slating each other over it in my kid sister's J-14 or whatever, and at the time I also recall seeing video of Drake getting sour and moody with interviewers on his record tour repeatedly asking him about Josh. They were both just young men trying to carve out new identities and it got a little too personal for whatever reason, basically.

They reconciled pretty fast that time too, as they did their D&J Christmas special the next year and were all loved-up in promo for that. These crazy kids just can't stay away from each other no matter how hard they try. Guess the Universe wants D&J: THE COLLEGE YEARS on Netflix.

What the hell is ghosted?

by Anonymousreply 3208/07/2017

It's less ghosting that Josh is doing and more a blatant cutting-out. Some online commenters are suggesting maybe Drake was the one ghosting prior to the wedding debacle and Josh is simply paying him no mind anymore, or that Josh is having trouble letting go of their close relationship and is ripping off the bandaid, so to speak. There's also a thought that this is an elaborate stunt, just because it's so patchy.

Nothing about what they're both saying jives. Drake's all, "we spoke before the wedding/last week/yesterday" and yet Josh is claiming they haven't spoken off-camera in years (hard to deny they've spoken or seen one another at all when they're on the same episode of a recent sitcom).

Our options, then: a) Josh is bareass lying and wants to cut Drake out completely, even though Drake still initiates contact and Josh goes with it; b) Drake is bareass lying and wants to save face by twisting the situation to seem like the wronged party; c) Neither are exactly lying but both are exaggerating, presumably as neither are happy or clear about the relationship contact they currently have.

by Anonymousreply 4108/08/2017

R38 slightly OT, but there's a case to say their namesake characters fell into bed together.

In one of the final episodes Josh locked lips with Drake for a full five seconds and this was not considered a strange or remarkable event (note that this has not happened in another kid/teen show since). In another, the two entered a dance contest and moved together suggestively as a straight couple might (complete with the rose-in-mouth trope). In the year prior to this, during their first movie 'Really Big Shrimp', the two spooned while asleep in a locked basement - Drake was the little spoon - and again, the expected 'no homo' moment did not arrive. In their second movie 'Merry Christmas...' both characters alluded to a closeness that allowed for anal (fingering), oral & exhibitionism (public nudity), as well as morning kisses. As a reminder, these characters were meant to have a platonic 'buddy' relationship with the arm-punching boundaries of young American males built in. Watching the Christmas movie with kids present is...interesting, to say the least.

The entire original show is replete with gay innuendo or references, but from Season 4 onward this ramped up and became very on-the-nose. The creator had no qualms suggesting an incestuous gay relationship was in the making once both characters hit 18, and even though this was purely for the laughs there was also a definite subversive element to it. It's almost homage, throwing back to the tender homo-romantic relationships embedded in the comedy of Hollywood duos like Lewis & Martin, for example. From schlocky and formulaic beginnings ‘Drake & Josh’ became something sophisticated and gay-coded by the end, perhaps explaining its lasting appeal and older demographic.

r45 they were very close and became young adults while they were on TV working together, its not like they spent a summer at camp or something.

I have friends like that who have gotten married and pretty much forgotten about everyone who helped them get to where they are, not just casual friendships, I mean real friends that bail you out and support you when you are going through it. Those people are the worst, and will be first ones who lose their minds and talk about how lonely they are, years later when their spouse betrays them. And just because someone is partnered or married or has children doesn't make them more mature. That is hetero-normative bullshit.

You remind me of Anderson Cooper leaving Kathy Griffin in the cold, just like that. Sorry to rant, but I can't stand fair-weather friends. Even though I've never been treated like that personally, I have two close friends that went through a similar "break-up" like this and it irks me to this day.

[quote Has Josh commented? His silence confirms that he is just not into Drake as much as Drake is into him.

That's what's so strange. You'd think Josh would be the needy one considering their personalities and how the public views them, but it seems that for all Drake's on-stage confidence and the attractive persona he plays he still adores Josh and takes a backseat to him on television. You can see this play out in their body language at the video at R37, where 16-year-old bespectacled Drake hides behind Josh and talks to him more than the interviewer. Later, Josh makes a few self-deprecating remarks and Drake instantly jumps in with a compliment, it's sweet.

They are obviously both ambitious and showbizzy guys but Josh always struck me as the sharper, hungrier and meaner of the two irrespective of how he comes across on tv. He's the son of a single career-woman and a native New Yorker out of Hell's Kitchen, that says it all.

Those complaining about Drake's face - when you do photoshoots that require you to be dehydrated, your face can look much less filled out than it does normally. There's some ways to make it look less drawn by eating carbs before a shoot and so forth but it's actually pretty common. Look at any bodybuilding show, their faces all look much older than they do in day to day life.

R73 It was pure cringe. The only reason I learned about it was from people making fun of it a la "how the mighty have fallen". 600k in debt, musical career is dead, stuck doing B-movies, etc. He doesn't even seem like a bad guy, it's just things simply didn't work out for him.

R75 Then I guess he is somehow in a perpetual state of dehydration. That OR he has terrible skin. I'll go with Occam's razor.

It's not as if Josh is doing that much better creatively, they're both on a similar level when it comes to projects. Josh does have a superior handle on his finances/personal life and stays away from the kids' genre now, but he still does a lot for free (YouTubing) and a lot of sitcom work.

Important question: which one of them has more Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards? Josh has three.

by Anonymousreply 7708/11/2017

I feel for Josh a little, the way he finds his childhood painful to think about and that his awkward years are laugh-tracked for kids' entertainment for a lifetime. He has said a few times that he'd like to forget about 'Drake & Josh' and implies that he doesn't feel the fondness Drake does. If you lose out on certain youthful milestones that can leave a void that is almost impossible to fill as an adult. I hope Josh uses a therapist.

That said he has his own sweet beachside apartment out of the Nick years and people respond to him positively wherever he goes, so there's upshot. No adolescence runs smooth, and you could say that in the end Josh came good. He's not broke, not lonely, not without work.

R69 neither were really hired on Nick for their good looks in the first place. They began their careers as goofy sidekicks, and the intention later on was to feature them in a show as two ordinary teen boys rather than heartthrobs. That Drake Bell has some kind of cute appeal and makes younger girls crazy (and that Drake Parker drew attention for his Casanova attitude) is incidental and hormone-related. Watching Drake & Josh work on Season 1 of their show or 'The Amanda Show', it's clear to see that both boys are considered as average & dweeby as the other (in tv-land, at least).

Attribute their early joint success to their openly affectionate friendship, not their looks. Their relationship dynamic is completely unremarkable in this current age of YouTube roommates crawling all over each other, but in 2001/2 it was something outstanding to see two teen boys on tv hugging and squealing over one another like Drake & Josh did.

Episode 33 of 'The Amanda Show' is a good example of this. In it, Amanda's nutty stalker (played by Amanda herself) somehow cons Josh into helping her get close to Amanda, and to do this the pair have to take out cast and crew members backstage who stand in-between them and Amanda. Josh complies for some reason, until time comes when Amanda's stalker orders him to lure Drake into a trap (specifically, a giant trapdoor in the ground). Josh can't go through with it, reminiscing on the 'good times' he and Drake have shared (a knockoff 'Titanic' motif plays over this sequence), and he heroically knocks Drake out of harm's way before sobbing all over him in apology. It's very funny and sweet, and stands as a rare portrayal of a physically affectionate teen-boy relationship c.2000 (both boys are about 15 y.o. here).

The RED DAWN (2012) remake was abominable, however I will cop to finding Josh Peck fuck-worthy in it. It's those doe eyes and that soft emotive quality he has, it's seductive somehow.

RED DAWN also makes it seem like Peck's character Matt wants his brother (played by a Hemsworth, idk which one), so Josh has a recurring theme to examine in his creative life.

The episode where Dobrik and Nash try to sell Josh's body to a Japanese businessman by way of a mea culpa for totalling his Maserati is the best one, R78. Josh gets agitated when the businessman backs out and offers to suck him off for nothing ("I'll bet I'm the best you ever had!"). Jason Nash then calls this needy messed-up behaviour a 'child star' thing and gets into a fight with Josh. It's so dark and fucked up.

Josh works well with darker comedy. If they ever resurrect D&J it should have a more adult tone like this.

Just checked Josh's IMDB, and he doesn't have a ton in production bar a couple indie movies and a tv show with Dobrik/Nash. He isn't doing bad but isn't awash, either. Wonder what his game plan is re. Career trajectory? His wife isn't famous enough to raise his profile. Maybe he is content doing low-profile character work and his Nick money is enough of a cushion to continue to do that.

His latest movie LOCATING SILVER LAKE sounds potentially gay-interest... maybe we'll get a sex scene? It features Josh as a supporting player to leading man Finn Wittrock, best known as Greg in LA-LA LAND.

I just heard Josh Peck talk about his childhood earnings on his episode of 'Allegedly' (with TMZ's gay Matthew Cole-Weiss) R89, and, according to Josh, "there are no residuals on kids' television" and he has never received syndication checks for his work on 'The Amanda Show' or 'Drake & Josh'. He says he gets mailbox checks from his voiceover work, notably on 20th C. Fox's 'Ice Age' franchise (2002-present).

by Anonymousreply 9008/15/2017

Josh also told the tale of how he lost his virginity on 'Allegedly' (at 40 minutes in) and it's bizarre. Josh claims to have lost his Cherry (to a woman, "not Drake") at the edge of 18 and while still living with Mom. He went across the hall of his apartment complex to deliver a donated TV to a neighbour, a woman of 34 and ample proportions, where he allowed himself to be seduced and on returning a week later enjoy a "beautiful 11 minutes". He seems to imply this affair continued and that it wasn't until he found a girlfriend that he broke it off, although he was briefly considering dating his older paramour until she started blackmailing him. The time this occurred would have been mid-2004 during filming for season 3 of 'Drake & Josh', and just before Drake's near-fatal car accident and the duo's first TV movie.

I don't know if I believe this story. On the one hand it's not hard to imagine Josh's superficial L.A. peers at the time withholding sex from him for the crime of being +200lbs, but then again every closet case male I've ever known has used an "I lost it to a much older woman/MILF" story (it's the standard lie, idk why).

by Anonymousreply 9108/15/2017

Josh is charming on that podcast. It's funny and a little sad that he thinks 18 is late to have sex for the first time, but maybe it is on NYC-time. Cole-Weiss flirts with him as a joke and Josh plays along, although while the hosts joke about Josh sleeping with men they don't ask him seriously if he's ever partaken.

So, when and how did Drake throw away his (straight)-V? Was it to Amanda?

by Anonymousreply 9208/17/2017

Josh seems cool R91. Easy to forget how urban and Yankee he is though, generous on the "BRO", "yo" and "Son" when speaking. He even talked about someone being "20 heads deep" lol. Idk, it's just a little weird to hear the masculine & posturing language of the hardbitten HK streets coming from the mouth of such a sensitive sweetheart like Josh...seems he has a streetwise side.

Not so for Drake, who is softer-spoken and more mannered. You usually hear him up-talking like a Val Girl and using "you knoooowww?" and "dude" all the time. They're total opposites, and that's why it's honestly easier (and more appropriate) to imagine them in flagrante than it is a too-young Drake and Amanda, R92...which. no, maybe let's not go there.

[quote] I'd been talking to him, and he's been telling me about the engagement. And then I saw on social media, the wedding, and I didn't hear about it. So, it was just one of those things where it was just like, 'You didn't even tell me?!"

Ever since this story broke this has bothered me. It's a contradiction, it doesn't make a lick of sense.

So Josh had been telling Drake about his impending marriage before the event, but neglected to mention the date, the location, the guestlist, or any detail that others normally ask about weddings....

Wouldn't Drake have got the hint that Josh didn't want him around for the wedding or want him talking about it when Josh refused to disclose details beyond "we're engaged"? Did Drake even *ask* any questions, or show any interest in discussing it at all? (And if not, why then did he expect an invite?) How did Drake hear about the engagement in the first place if what Josh says is true and they never talk? Why would Josh bother going to Drake about the engagement and not the actual wedding?

by Anonymousreply 9408/18/2017

r94 its quite possible Josh had a long engagement. Just because you know someone is engaged doesn't mean you know their wedding date and details. Drake deserved an invite unless he did something really shady to Josh.

Drake Bell was on MTV 'SafeWord' last-night with Ron Funches. Drake was a good sport for the most part ("do you UNDERSTAND if I do this I will be a MEME for LIFE?!!") but didn't push those new songs he's releasing...

This is one of those relationships where the couple can't live with one another for more than a minute as grown people but their Inner Children are madly in love with each other still, so they can't ever cut ties totally. Then there's the career shackle...

Perhaps Miranda Cosgrove will write a tell-all in about 60 years when one or both of them have died, and we'll know the truth.

R100 Drake looked absolutely ambushed and blindsided by Josh sneaking up behind him with a camera. Good acting, or? He looked like he wanted to go off on Josh but couldn't because of the Livestream. Josh used aggressive & dominating body language there, at odds with his cuddly swishy persona. Hmm.

And yeah, Drake really does talk like a 45 year-old Valgirl. He has the same proportions as one to boot. Getting swole just doesn't ever take on a naturally tiny skinny guy like him (he's like 5"3?) so he needs some chub and babyfat to look more healthy and stay cute (and to stop his skin crinkling so fast). He could stand to cut the smokes, eat more and lay off cardio. And sleep more and stress less. 30 ain't old!

They did a David Dobrik vlog together last week. Josh surprised David at his house by bringing Drake over (who David had wanted to meet for years), and they all did a cute little skit and photo op. Drake seemed uncomfortable but trying-to-be-cool-with-it (he looks tasteful dressed in sky blue) and Josh had his usual manic charm on display but seemed somehow tense behind the laughter. The duo pulled it off though, and made little Dobrik very happy besides (David: "this is my Make-A-Wish"). Josh's other myriad vlogger friends didn't seem to care or notice that Drake was even there, kinda sad but understandable.

Dobrik's YT Channel was trending for the first time a few days ago because of the reunion.

10 weeks and then the Drake & Josh Christmas movie will be all over Nick At Nite again (time really goes too fast; it's nearly Christmas 2017 and this movie is almost a decade old...)

I always forget Henry Winkler plays the Judge who almost puts the boys in prison, and that D&J nearly get arrested again later in the movie for 'public nudity' of all things. This happens after they get jumped and stripped by goons, but if you see the scene out of context it plays like they were caught in broad daylight fucking in their neighbour's bushes. Kinky.

OT but Miranda grew up so gorgeous, my girl's bone structure came in. She's got a kooky and fascinating beauty to her face, glossy sleek hair and a really genuine smile.

R112 These three are in the speed bracket. Miranda may even qualify for the horse bracket as she's getting that Minions money, but she doesn't appear to be the type.

Drake does spend a lot of time in Mexico, however, so could have a penchant for whatever they're peddling there.

I like Josh Peck, a sweet fella and seems like a life-of-the-party type. He's not too shabby in a drama performance, either. But, why does he talk like a NBA player? A lot of "yo, yo, yo", talking about "respect"....it sounds corny to me.

None of his friends or associates talk this way, so what gives? Is this how most native Millennial Yankees speak now? Is it like an elaborate gimmick or in-joke? Was his absentee Dad a hoodrat? Someone ELI5, I'm Ohio farmtrash.

R17 during that BTS for 'Yours, Mine & Ours' Sean and Drake did an interview with just the two of them, and were comfortably teasing one other about their personal lives.

Near the end Sean asks Drake what he 'loves about girls'. This question is enough to take Drake off-guard, and Sean finds this funny. In response Drake blushes, hides his face for a second and grasping for an answer eventually says, "uh, I don't know, I,...I'm a failure with the ladies". Sean snorts at this, "oh, he's so full of it, trust me". It's a weird exchange and there's something about the topic neither are willing to say out loud, but while it's tempting to assume this points to clandestine gay sex....kind of a reach. One of them may have slept with Danielle Panabaker or Katija Pevec (or both?); in 2007-8 both Drake and Sean were only around age 21 and every teenage girl alive was hot for Drake back then.

Miranda Cosgrove was also in this movie, if R110 cares.

[quote] In one of the final episodes Josh locked lips with Drake for a full five seconds and this was not considered a strange or remarkable event (note that this has not happened in another kid/teen show since).

Fun fact: this gag is censored in several countries, some in Western Europe, as it is quasi-incestuous in nature as well as homosexual.

Guess Nineteen-Eighty-Four really happened.

However tere was a similar gay kiss in another Nick show some years later, an excited liplock in jest between the titular leads of 'Sam & Cat'. No-one cared about censoring that, though, because cheap lesbian fanservice is A-OK.

R23 Drake goes into details about growing up with Josh on Sang's show, and it must be the griftiest adolescence I've ever heard of.

They used to do boring teenage boy stuff like have pizza, movie and videogame night on the reg, naturally ("in our bedroom") but also spent time after work writing scripts and pitching to Execs as well as practising their own improv based on ancient sitcoms (Drake mentions 'I Love Lucy'). Guess that was the key to success in the days before YouTube and social media.

It's cute at 5m when Drake admits that for him the best part of 'Drake and Josh' was...being with Josh. Aww.

Drake & Josh have weird, 'off' chemistry now. They aren't comfortable with each other so they've definitely crossed the 'friendship' boundary some way, somehow.

Their chemistry is fine, R138, enough with the dramatics. You don't work with someone that closely for that long without ups & downs, it happens. What they had was basically a working marriage, and if this nonsense wasn't total PR (spoiler: it was) then they just hit a bump in the road these last couple of years. They'll probably have a new sitcom pilot greenlit in 6 months.

The 'Really Big Shrimp' movie they did was possibly as good as it will ever get. The German dub is particularly good as they found a deeper masc voice for Josh and a less raspy emphysemal one for Drake. Somehow half the verbal gags actually turn out funnier delivered in German.

Drake's latest song dropped a couple days ago but is only available as a preview rn (here's hoping it will sound better cleaned up, it's got sexy, sultry, vibey potential).

In a recent interview for his highschool tour he called his songwriting his 'journal', chronicling his personal experiences "love & love lost". The lyrics of this latest new song 'Call Me (When You're Lonely)' run thus:

Here's a theory why Drake & Josh have such a weird relationship R138, beside the child star thing.

Drake has Mommy issues from his Hollywood mother but by all appearances had a somewhat healthy relationship with his Cali father, while Josh had a warm & protective Jewish mother but grew up with no father (a father he never met and who passed away before they could, explained in the vid below). Josh is naturally more feminine & caring in his m/m relationships for this reason, which is something Drake would naturally be drawn to. It's harder to say why Josh is attracted to Drake in turn but there must be some reason along those line or Josh would have cut him off or feuded with him years sooner.

Of course they need each other as a potential fallback in case of a career drought, but the bitterness over the past year suggests there are deeper foundations than that. It would be interesting to know how Drake feels about Josh's bonds with his vlogging crew, if he feels threatened or jealous by their collaborations.

There's no going bact with that shit with me.

by Anonymousreply 14711/08/2017

These guys are cool now, R147. The lack of invite was handwaved as something Josh felt would minimise press attention on their wedding, and keep focus on Josh's bride Paige (not on the presence of Drake Bell).

Arguably not inviting Drake garnered even more press attention than having him present would have, but suspend your disbelief and it sort of makes vague sense.

Anyone here have a working link to video of the Drake & Josh interview (NOT the one with Miranda C.) c. 2008/9 led by Barbara Walters on the View? Think it was promo for the Xmas movie they did...

It was the weirdest joint tv interview I have ever seen, and it has been weirdly scrubbed from the Internet in the last few years. Iirc Josh was wearing a choker and Drake was wearing some kind of dusty suit w/glasses.

by Anonymousreply 15511/16/2017

Was it the December 4th 2008 episode R155? I just tracked it down and there's nothing too 'weird' about it, except maybe the comment "we've been together 9 years" from Drake and Josh's reaction.

The D&J segment is clipped in the link and it mostly fits your description - D&J talk a little about the Christmas movie they did, Drake in an old fashioned suit & glasses, Barbara looking sharp all in red next to him. Josh isn't wearing a choker, though, and they talk about 'The Wackness' (that movie Josh did with Ben Kingsley) as well. Josh was hilarious in this appearance, "I dropped the robe and went with God".

by Anonymousreply 15611/16/2017

Thanks so much for your efforts tracking that down R156, that is a fun guesting from both of them and it’s cool to see it again.

Unfortunately though, it’s not the one I’m looking for. I fear I may have gotten the year of my search wrong and that the ‘lost’ appearance is actually from an episode in 07 (for some reason my instinct says it aired in late summer of that year?).

Josh definitely was wearing a black pendant or something that episode, and now I think about it I’m not sure Drake had the glasses yet. They were doing the interview on a bigger couch than for the one in your link. THE WACKNESS hasn’t come out in 07 so there was no talk of that. Elizabeth spoke more in the episode I’m remembering..
