Candace Cameron Bure, a former cohost of The View, says she suffered from ‘PTSD’ as a result of the show and would ‘feel ill to her stomach’.
CANDACE During her stint hosting The View, Cameron Bure admitted to crying in her dressing room virtually every day and feeling “sick to her stomach.”
From 2015 to 2016, the former child star appeared on the show for seasons 19 and 20.
On this week’s audio of The View: Behind the Table, Candace, 45, sat down with former co-hosts Raven-Symoné and Sara Haines to discuss their time hosting The View.
When she looks back to those days, the Fuller House actor admits she still gets a pit in her stomach: “There was only one form of tension that I’ve ever felt in my life, and it came from that show.” And I [have]PTSD, as far as I can tell. It was quite challenging, and managing the emotional tension was extremely difficult.” Candace admitted that her hosting duties didn’t begin well. After Donald Trump entered the presidential race, however, the conservative actress found herself outnumbered by her more liberal tablemates, such as Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Raven, and others.
“I would get sick to my stomach if I felt like I was going into a program that I didn’t have a clear opinion on, or if it was something that I was truly frightened to talk about because I did have an opinion about it but knew I was the only one at the table who had my perspective,” she revealed. “I despised that sensation. Then I’m like, ‘I have no idea who’s going to attack me.'” Candace isn’t the only person to tell her harrowing story.
“That was an extremely challenging job,” she told Good Housekeeping last year.
“It helped me grow tremendously, but it was the most challenging job I’ve ever had… you always feel like you’re battling for the right to speak your mind.”
Shortly after Raven, the Hallmark actress quit the program, citing her work on Netflix’s Full House revival, other TV projects, and the show’s regular bicoastal travel as reasons for her departure.
“I feel like there were so many amazing takeaways from the show,” Candace said on the podcast. And, as challenging as that work was, I’m grateful for it.” Send us an email at [email protected] or give us a call at 212 416 4552.
