He currently stars on “How I Met Your Father.”
While promoting the book, he’s obviously been asked questions about his former co-star, Drake Bell.
Last year, Bell was embroiled in a child endangerment case stemming back to 2017.
Josh Peck Opens Up Relationship With Drake Bell
This week, Peck made an appearance on the “BFFs” podcast. He spoke about his and Bell’s reunion at the 2017 VMAs.
Their reunion came just a few months after Peck got married and did not invite Bell.
At the time, Bell was insanely PO’d and took to Twitter to air his frustrations.
In a since deleted tweet, the actor wrote, “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear….Loyalty is key… ALWAYS remember where you came from.”
Peck recalled the reunion and what he said to his former co-star.
“I remember we were at the MTV Video Music Awards [in 2017] and I see him there and he sees me. I go up to him, and this might be the most Sopranos thing I have ever done, I looked at him and I go, ‘Go apologize to my wife right now.’ He made a beeline for my wife and I see him do a whole 5-minute performance of an apology,” Peck said on the podcast.
Well, Janet, Bell’s wife, tuned into the podcast and felt the need to clear her side of the story.

On her Instagram Story she wrote, “Josh Peck is a total piece of sh*t. I stay quiet until lies happen. And…the fact that I was there at the VMAs, I was next to Drake.”
Her message continued, “I was the one who told him Josh was coming [up to us with the camera.] I was there, heard it all. Drake was never threatened by Josh….that’s actual hilarious. Bro you’re not tough. Also, yea, Drake apologized to your wife because you asked him nicely to.”
Janet then explained the couples hung out together multiple times and chatted on multiple occasions since that encounter.
She concluded writing, “You’re a f**king liar. A f**king liar, Josh.”
The “Turner & Hooch” actor wrote about the status of their relationship in his new memoir.

He wrote, “The world wanted to believe that we still shared a bedroom even if we weren’t filming the TV show, but once that was over, so was our connection. It was like camp, eventually everyone has to go home. Our names would become synonymous with each other forever. It’s a long life but there’s certainly a chance that ‘Drake & Josh’ will be the most noteworthy thing either of us ever do.”
He continued, “This perhaps could explain why over a decade after the show ended, the world went insane when I got married and didn’t invite Drake to my wedding. … People couldn’t fathom that we’d only seen each other a handful of times since the show ended.”
