Grown up child stars Danica McKellar and Candace Cameron Bure took to the "Dancing With the Stars" floor Monday after Us Weekly reported the two squabbled as teens over a boy.

Bure, formerly of "Full House," and McKellar of "Wonder Years" fame are participating in the 18th season the celebrity-driven dancing competition show. Each celebrity is paired with a professional dancer and the pairs are competing for the Mirror Ball trophy.

But the dance competition doesn't seem to be the first time the two have locked horns. 

"Candace had a run-in with Danica and told her she was the reason she split with her old boyfriend," a source told Us Weekly, referring to Jeremy Miller from "Growing Pains." "He broke up with (Candace) to date Danica."

But it appears to be water under the bridge now. Bure told reporters she was looking forward to seeing McKellar again.

"Danica and I have known each other since we were 11 or 12 years old," Bure said at the Hollywood premiere of "Muppets: Most Wanted" on March 11.

Bure, 37, who is married to retired National Hockey League player Valeri Bure, seemed to be more worried about her dancing than an old romantic rivalry.

"I absolutely love dancing," Bure told Us Weekly earlier this month. "I have no dance experience whatsoever, but from being a kid to today, if there's a wedding or a party, I'm the first girl on the dance floor, and I'm the last one off."

Bure told the magazine she will lean on her husband, a Russian native, on his experience competing in Canada's version of the program.

"My husband Val's a professional athlete, and he did a very similar show to this in Canada," said Bure, who is matched with pro Mark Ballas. "And he won two years ago. So I want to challenge myself the way that he did, and see if I can bring home the mirror ball trophy."

McKellar, 39, who divorced composer Mike Verta in 2013, said she was looking forward to the competition as well.

"I love dancing, I love challenges and I love all the sparkly glamorous outfits," McKellar said.
