Candace Cameron Bure made a tearful announcement Thursday that she will be leaving her hosting spot on "The View" because of prior commitments that have grown since she came on as a host in September 2015.
Bure announced her departure during a conversation with co-host Whoopi Goldberg, thanking the other hosts and producers for “welcoming her” and saying that she has learned a lot from all of them.
The audience groaned loudly and seemed sorry to see the conservative host leave the show.
The actress, who is also a wife and mother of three, told “The View” audience she was already committed to the Netflix spinoff “Fuller House” and to doing movies on the Hallmark Channel, and that both of those commitments had grown since she came on “The View.”
“My commitments have become even greater with those shows and the commute of going West Coast to East Coast every single week has been tough on me and hard for my family as well, and I want to make sure that I am able to spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent,” Bure said in her announcement.
“I tried to be Superwoman, but I’m going to not try anymore,” Bure said, when co-host Joy Behar remarked that she was doing too much.
Goldberg tried to be humorous by remarking, “And you know, with all the sex talk we do, you miss your husband.”
Executive producer Candi Carter praised Bure for speaking her mind and said the show would be happy to have her back as a guest to support her other endeavors, Entertainment Weekly reported.
