Candace Cameron Bure Reveals How Co-Hosting The View Was Bad For Her Health

Candace Cameron Bure is best known for her role as DJ Tanner on "Full House" and later the sequel series, "Fuller House." The actress has also won over fans due to her affiliation with The Hallmark Channel, which includes her multiple stints as fan-favorite character Aurora Teagarden and her appearances in the Christmas-themed movies (via IMDb). While Cameron Bure fans are used to seeing the actress take on family-friendly and light-hearted roles, the actress recently admitted that there was one job in particular that made her life difficult, per People Magazine.

Cameron Bure joined "The View" as a co-host in 2015. She sat at the famous table for Seasons 19 and 20 before saying goodbye to the gig. During her time on the talk show, the former child star says that she suffered great anxiety due to the pressure she felt to speak out about things such as politics. "When I was asked to join the table, the show was supposed to steer towards more ever-green topics and less about politics. Enter Donald Trump into the presidential race. It changed everything," she explained. "[I was] just trying to understand and have a general grasp of topics that I didn't want to talk about or didn't care about," she added.

Cameron Bure also confessed that things got so bad for her while working on "The View" that she can still feel the effects of the job on her to this day.

Candace Cameron Bure gets candid about her time on The View

While speaking to People Magazine, Candace Cameron Bure admitted that thinking about her time on "The View" still makes her feel uneasy. "The stress and the anxiety — I actually have a pit in my stomach right now. There was only one type of stress that I've ever felt in my life, that came from that show. And I [have] PTSD, like, I can feel it. It was so difficult, and to manage that emotional stress was very, very hard," the actress stated.

"When I felt like I was going into a show that I didn't have a clear opinion about or it was something that I was legitimately nervous to talk about because I did have an opinion about it but I knew I was the only one at the table that had my opinion, I would just get sick to my stomach," she confessed. "I hated that feeling. And then I'm like, 'I don't know who's going to come at me.'"

Despite the negative feelings that came along with the gig, Cameron Bure says that she doesn't regret taking the job. "I don't know that I regret anything, honestly. I feel like there were so many wonderful takeaways from the show. And as difficult as that job was, I'm very, very grateful for it." In addition, the "Full House" alum says that while she would "never want a permanent seat at the table again" she often "feel like family" when she returns as a guest.
