“Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure spent about a year as a co-host on “The View” before announcing she was leaving the show in 2016. Now three years on from the decision, she is taking time to look back at her tenure on the show.
“I don’t miss it,” she said on the “Tamron Hall Show” on Tuesday. “I miss the people. I’ll be honest, I’m going to hop over after the show and go say ‘hi’ because they all are friends and feel like buddies. But I don’t miss talking about politics every day. I want to stay in happy land. I want to be in a bubble where I just want to be kind and respectful and love on people.”
She explained her decision to leave “The View” back in 2016. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but before I started ‘The View,’ I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries,” she said at the time.
“And because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows.”
“The commute of going West Coast to East Coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well,” she continued. “And I want to make sure that I’m able to spend at much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent.”
“It’s a lot,” she added. “I’ve tried to be Superwoman, and I’m going to not try anymore.”
Cameron Bure has remained very busy as an actress, appearing in over 20 Hallmark movies and co-starring in “Fuller House” on Netflix. The final season of that show hits the streaming service on Friday.
She also talked to Hall about ending “Fuller House.”
“It’s like saying goodbye to my best friend,” Cameron Bure said about ending her role as D.J. Tanner. “I have had such an incredible journey with ‘Full House’ and now ‘Fuller House.’ I’m so sad that it’s ended, but so happy that it happened.
“We have had such an incredible fan base for over 30 years,” she continued. “I never stopped hearing about ‘Full House’ or D.J. Tanner wherever I went. Even when I took off and wasn’t working for 10 years to stay home and raise my kids, there was still so much ‘Full House’ love. We knew that we still had something that fans wanted to see. I think we kind of started that nostalgia train with all the shows because ours was the first that hit and did really well. I’m so grateful for it.”
