Candace Cameron Bure Defends 'Full House' After Blogger Blasts 90s TV
Actress Candace Cameron Bure came in third place in this season’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Today on Fox and Friends, Bure said she was surprised at how well she did against winner Meryl Davis, a figure skater and 2014 Olympic gold medalist.
“I was the one that came in with the least experience,” Bure said. “I realized how many fans I have ‘cause they’re the ones that voted me through.”
Then the discussion moved to a blogger who recently slammed 90s television shows for portraying unrealistic lessons.
Annelia Alex wrote, “I watched a lot of prime time TV between the ages 12 to 14. That's what well-behaved adolescents did weeknights 8-10 p.m. Eastern. While the cool kids were out smoking cigarettes and tongue kissing, I was in front of the TV, with a sleeve of Oreos, absorbed in trite plots of short-lived sitcoms. … However, those shows did cause one negative side effect: they distorted my expectations for reality.”
Bure’s former “Full House” co-star John Stamos shot back at the blogger. He wrote on social media, “Don’t blame the way your life turned out because of TGIF – if you’re lucky enough to have kids – maybe you should have them watch re-runs of Breaking Bad – see how that turns out.”
Bure agreed with Stamos, saying, “It’s kind of laughable because it’s a sitcom. The show’s never been off the air in 25 years, and you hear so much positive stuff … because it was wholesome and family television.”
