The View has never been shy about covering controversial topics. The daytime gabfest is notorious for controversial takes and disagreements. Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure surely felt that during her co-hosting stint between 2015 and 2016.
Bure recently appeared on ABC’s Behind the Table podcast, where she discussed the emotional toll co-hosting The View. She did not paint a pretty picture.
“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,” the actress said on the podcast. “It was so difficult, and to manage that emotional stress was very, very hard.”
Bure said that she felt great pressure to come forward with conservative views on the show. She also said that some of the topics caused her stress and anxiety, as well.
“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 said. “I hated that feeling. And then I’m like, ‘I don’t know who’s going to come at me.’”
Candace said that she would cry before tapings of the show. Despite the toll her short time on The View took on her emotionally, Bure has no regrets.
“I don’t know that I regret anything, honestly,” she said. “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.”
Bure has also come under fire in some circles for her perceived anti-vaccination stances. The actress, however, claims that she is more “pro-freedom” than anti-vax.
