Over the years Candace Cameron has been a strong supporter of Christian values, and has used her platform on “The View” to spread these ideals.
Unfortunately it appears all of that will be coming to an end soon, as Candace announced some shocking news that left the entire audience stunned.
“I’m very happy to be back,” the Fuller House star said to a loud roar from the audience. That’s when she shocked everyone with a statement that nobody saw coming.
“It’s a little bittersweet for me today because I’m announcing that I will be leaving ‘The View’,” she said as she began to choke up, and she wasn’t alone. The entire audience was audibly upset at the news, but Candace says that it wasn’t an easy call to make.
“It wasn’t an easy decision,” she stated, as the tears began to well up. “But before I started ‘The View’ I had already had my commitments to ‘Fuller House’, and my work with the Hallmark Channel… And because of the success of those my commitments have become even greater with those shows.”
As a family-first woman, Candace acknowledged that the “commute from west coast to east coast every week” has been “tough” on her and her family, so the move was, unfortunately, a necessary one. “I want make sure that I’m able to spend as much time with my children,” the mother of three told a choked up audience, “and invest in all the projects I do to the fullest extent.”
Candace then began to thank her fellow hosts, who have worked alongside her for nearly two years. “I thank everybody, Whoopi, Joy I particularly want to thank you for welcoming me to this table,” she said to more cheers. “I’ve learned so much from you and am grateful for you.”
The moment is a little sad, but it’s truly heartwarming to see friends share how much they care about one another. Once again Candace Cameron just gives us more reasons to like her!
Obviously, God has opened up many doors for Candace, but it’s still sad to see one of the show’s voices of reason leave. While the hosts may have their disagreements at times, at the end of the day they are still friends who care about one another, and it’s always difficult to watch someone walk away.
Good luck in God’s next adventure, Candace! We will be rooting for you!
