CANDACE Cameron Bure revealed she would cry in her dressing room almost every day, and feel ‘sick to her stomach’ during her time hosting The View.
The former child star joined the show for seasons 19 and 20 from 2015 to 2016.
Candace, 45, sat down with former co-hosts Raven-Symoné and Sara Haines to discuss their time hosting The View on this week’s podcast of The View: Behind the Table.
The Fuller House star confessed she still gets a pit in her stomach when she thinks back to those days: “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.”
Candace confessed her hosting duties didn’t start out bad. But that changed after Donald Trump enteted the presidential race, and the conservative actress was suddenly outnumbered by her more liberal tablemates, including Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Raven and others.
“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 explained. “I hated that feeling. And then I’m like, ‘I don’t know who’s going to come at me.’”
This isn’t the first time Candace has shared her tortured tale.
Last year, she told Good Housekeeping: “That was a super tough job.
“It helped me grow a lot, but that was the most difficult job I’ve had to date… you always feel like you’re fighting to speak your opinion.”
The Hallmark star left the show shortly after Raven, citing her work on Netflix’s Full House revival, other TV projects and the constant bicoastal travel as reasons for her exit.
But Candace admitted on the podcast that she has no regrets about her time on The View: “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.”
