The Saga Continues: Drake Bell Isn't Done Talking About Josh Peck's Wedding
On last week's episode of Feud: Drake and Josh, a new character was introduced when we heard what Miranda Cosgrove thought about the intense wedding drama that's been heating up out timelines for weeks now.
Well, like any good soap opera, the saga continues this week. In a recent interview with People magazine, Drake Bell discussed the wedding snub of the century. He told the magazine,
I was caught off guard. I hadn't heard of anything about it...There are no hard feelings. He's been my best friend for 18 years. In all honesty, we talk all the time, we've been talking. I was just expecting…
And when asked about how the drama has become one of the most viral stories of the year so far, Bell responded with,
That was a shock. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. I did not realize that it was going to have such a viral effect.
Clearly, he was not pleased with the way the media and fans responded to the situation on the internet, though, because he went on to say,
That's my bro you know? It's kind of one of those things where you're fighting with him on the playground, but if someone else says something, you're like 'Hey, I can say that but you can't!'
This response, of course, comes after Bell tweeted and deleted a bunch of subtweets aimed at Josh Peck after seeing pics of the ceremony and reception online. His first tweet read, "When you're not invited to the wedding the message is clear…."
All in all, it seems like this telenovela might be coming to an end, though, since Drake really doesn't seem to have any hard feelings. Before ending his interview with People, Bell talked about the potential for a Drake and Josh reunion with his former costar. He said,
I would love to [do a reunion]. If it's done in the right way. I don't know if a reunion of us doing same characters as in Drake and Josh, or different ones like in Pineapple Express, but it would definitely be fun.
I like where your head's at, Drake, a reunion would be a hit. Maybe scrap the Pineapple Express thing, though.
Here's an idea you can pitch instead: We get a series of one-hour episodes a la General Hospital or Guiding Light where you and Josh dramatize the events of the past month. Let's be really honest here, it's the special we're dying for, and after paying this much attention to this saga, we deserve it.
