Candace Cameron Bure Talks Happy ‘Fuller House’ Set, Says ‘The View’ Can Be A Lonely Place

Candace Cameron Bure juggles two successful TV shows, but it sounds like the sets have very different vibes. Candace stars on the Netflix comedy Fuller House and is a co-host on ABC’s The View, and some fans wonder if she’ll continue to do both, especially since The View is known for its ever-changing co-host panel.

In an interview with Pop Sugar, Candace dished on the upcoming second season of Fuller House and revealed that the cast is still like one big happy family more than 20 years after their original show ended.

“It just felt like we were all on summer break and we got to come back,” Cameron Bure said of returning to the original Full House set with her longtime castmates. “We’re all so grateful and happy. We love each other so much. All our dressing rooms are near each other. It’s like a little dorm. We hang out and talk to each other across the halls and go into each other’s rooms and make plans with one another.”

While Candace Cameron Bure grew up with her Full House family—the archival footage that’s incorporated into the spinoff series serves as a video photo album—she doesn’t have as much of a family feeling over at The View. Instead, it’s more of a cordial respect for her fellow talk show co-hosts, which include Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Paula Faris, fellow child star Raven-Symone, and the recently fired Michelle Collins. In an interview with Fox411, Candace Cameron Bure said she picked a crazy time to join the ABC chatfest, as the lone conservative on a very fired-up panel during a circus of an election year.

“This is one of the craziest election years I think any of us have ever known,” Candace told Fox411. “It’s just so wild. I always think to myself ‘What a year for me to have joined The View during this political race for the presidency.’ I realize sometimes I am the lone conservative or lone Republican sitting at the table some days. And some days it’s hard to not have back-up, but we are all there to share our opinions and I think that’s one thing that about me, I don’t get hot-headed.”

As for some of the contentious roundtable discussions, Candace said she takes nothing personally when it comes to The View.

“I don’t take any of it personally,” Cameron Bure said. “I don’t think really any of the women are on the panel mean it personally. We all have different opinions, that is why we are there. I believe in what I believe, but I love being open and listening to others and it doesn’t matter to me at the end of the day whether we agree or not. I believe in healthy conversation, and that’s what I always try to bring to the table. I don’t get overly impassioned or angry with someone who doesn’t agree with me, that’s just my personality.”

Candace Cameron Bure made headlines earlier this year when she walked off of The View set after a heated Hot Topics discussion with Whoopi Goldberg over the lack of diversity at the Oscars. While many viewers questioned the timing of Candace’s disappearance from the table, it was later revealed that she just wasn’t feeling well. Candace Cameron Bure posted an update on social media, explaining that she had low blood sugar and was diagnosed with the flu, and she made it clear that her exit from the talk show table had nothing to do with the on-air clash about the Oscars.


Candace Cameron Bure recently celebrated her 40th birthday on The View, where the cast surprised her with a cake that was decorated with photos of her childhood. But her Full House family was also part of the bash, thanks to birthday videos from co-stars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier.
