Candace Cameron Bure Says Goodbye to ‘The View’
Less than two months after Raven-Symoné left The View to work on the That’s So Raven reboot, her fellow co-host Candace Cameron Bure announced she’d be leaving as well. On Friday, the 40-year-old actress said her final goodbyes to the talk show.
It’s not all that surprising that the Fuller House star chose to leave The View. Besides starring in the Full House revival, which just released its second season on Netflix, the mother of three is also committed to working with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, all of which have been successes for her.
The travelling between New York and L.A. became too much for the actress, who’s been married to her husband, Valeri Bure, for 20 years, and she felt she was taking too much time away from her family.
“It wasn’t an easy decision,” the actress said on the show on Thursday.
The turnaround between Candace’s announcement and leaving was quick as she said her goodbyes to her co-hosts and the viewers the very next day.
“I will miss all of you,” she said to her co-hosts. “They told me I’m welcome back any time and I would love to come back, so I won’t be a stranger.”
When co-host Joy Behar asked if Candace, who joined the show in 2015, had enjoyed her time on the show, the actress said she enjoyed it “very, very much” and felt “blessed and thankful” for the opportunity.
To finish off her last day on the show, Candace did the show’s sign off one last time and closed out the show.
