Candace Cameron Bure’s time at the American chat show is way over as she reveals how exhausting and stressful the experience was during her tenure a few years ago.
Former “The View” co-host Candace Cameron Bure got candid about her challenging experience at the chat show in an interview with People on Friday, September 17 but shared she was grateful for the opportunity:
“My time at ‘The View’ was exciting, challenging, informative, emotional, and stressful.”
REFLECTING ON HER STINT
The 45-year-old continued to explain that her stint was one of the most challenging jobs she has ever held, “but I was incredibly grateful for the opportunity to sit at the table with such talented, smart, capable women.”
In addition, she said she established long-standing relationships off-screen with the show producers, among others, for which she is forever thankful.
Cameron Bure added that while she does not desire to have a permanent post at the show, it always feels like family when she goes back as a guest.
She joined the show from 2015 to 2016 and served as a co-host for several episodes before becoming a permanent host for seasons 19 and 20.
JOINING THE SHOW
The producer shared her co-hosting duties alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symone, Joy Behar, and more at the time of her stint.
Since her exit, Cameron Bure has appeared twice on the show, one time in 2017 and once again back in 2018. At the time of her departure, she cited her acting commitments as her reasons for leaving.
When she joined the cast, the author revealed that she expected some of the topics to be on a lighter note than she initially anticipated, adding they were meant to be more about ever-green issues and less about politics.
Hence the shift to that category took its toll on her and even compared the experience as being back at high school doing 4-5 hours of homework a night.
Cameron Bure shared it was also exhausting as she traveled back and forth between two cities weekly to be with family on the weekends.
Despite the encounters, the “Fuller House” star shared some good memories from her time on the show, revealing she would never forget warm moments on and off camera with Goldberg and Behar as they had fun moments together.
