Nearly three years after giving up her co-hosting duties on The View, Candace Cameron Bure is reflecting on her short time on the daytime talk show.
During an appearance on Tamron Hall on Tuesday, the Fuller House star, 43, opened up about her decision to leave The View and how it has impacted her life since.
“I don’t miss it,” she told Hall, 49. “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.”
In December 2016, Cameron Bure — who joined The View as a co-host in 2015 for the show’s 19th season — announced that she would be leaving the daytime talkshow after co-hosting for two seasons.
“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 in 2016. “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 said. “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.”
Ultimately, Cameron Bure said the travel became too much for her and took her away from her family — including husband of 23 years Valeri Bure, 45, and their three children: daughter Natasha, 21, and sons Lev, 19, and Maksim, 17.

But Cameron Bure has kept herself busy with over 20 Hallmark films and with the fifth and final season of Netflix’s Fuller House, which will drop on Friday.
“It’s like saying goodbye to my best friend,” Cameron Bure told Hall of saying goodbye to her Fuller House character, 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 …read more
