'The View' Cast: Candace Cameron Bure Reveals Huge Reason Behind Her Departure [VIDEO]
Candace Cameron Bure is now delving further into why she decided to quit The View after two seasons.
Cameron Bure announced her big news that she was leaving The View during Thursday's episode of the chat show. The actress has been busy with Netflix's Fuller House and a deal with the Hallmark Channel, but she is now revealing another reason for her departure.
"Honestly, it's the travel," Cameron Bure admitted to People this week. "I have traveled coast to coast every single week so I could be at home on the weekends with my family, and then back to work in New York during the week."
Now that Cameron Bure is moving back to Los Angeles, she is hoping to have an easier time juggling all of her TV projects.
"I've enjoyed the experience so much," she said. "I really grew and learned a lot from the show, but I'm happy to be able to spend more time in LA and do more of my full-time jobs there."
Cameron Bure was often the show's lone conservative voice, replacing the similarly right-leaning Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who left in 2013. The 40-year-old actress has had a busy couple years, having competed in Dancing With the Stars (where she came in third place), reprised her role as DJ Tanner in the Full House spinoff Fuller House and making movies for the Hallmark Channel, in addition to her regular stint on The View.
Now that she's back on the West Coast, she can better focus on raising her three kids, Natasha, Lev and Maksim, with husband, Valeri.
While Cameron Bure remains busy, this is a step in the right direction for her own happiness.
"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 explained to The View audience on Thursday. "And because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows. It's a lot. I've tried to be superwoman and I'm going to not try anymore."
