Bure and Saget began working together in the entertainment industry in 1987 in the sitcom FULL HOUSE. The show ran for eight seasons and received a follow-up called FULLER HOUSE, which appeared on Netflix in 2016.
During a visit to Saget on his podcast, HERE FOR YOU, the late comedian came to Bure’s defense after the Hallmark actress received criticism for her happy attitude.
“I’m going to ask you to talk about me for a second,” Cameron Bure told Saget in April. “For those people that think that because I am a happy, positive person, that I must be a fake person, would you say that that’s true or false?”
Saget responded: “You’re the opposite of fake. And I’m sorry — you’re perky sometimes. What’s wrong with being perky?”
“Thank you,” Bure said. “I only ask that because sometimes you read comments, and most of them, they roll off my back. But when people are annoyed at me that I’m such a happy person … I was like, let someone speak into this that’s known me since I was 9 years old.”
“You’re a positive person. So if you’re perky, it’s because you’re excited, and/or you’ve had a lot of caffeine. That’s what people should know — there’s nothing fake about you,” Saget continued.
Candace spoke about her FULL HOUSE family on Instagram.
“Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family,” Bure wrote on Instagram. “And now we grieve as a family. Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob. He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob’s honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob. ~ John, Dave, Candace, Jodie, Lori, Andrea, Scott, Jeff, Ashley and Mary-Kate.”
