Danica McKellar Talks Love Triangle That Included Candace Cameron Bure

By Movieguide® Contributor 

THE WONDER YEARS star Danica McKellar revealed that she and FULL HOUSE’s Candace Cameron Bure were in a love triangle 30 years ago. 

“So, in 1989, I believe it was, there was this party that a teen magazine was putting on and [GROWING PAINS star] Jeremy Miller, who was also a young actor, he was at this party,” she shared with Fox News at That’s4Entertainment’s 90’s Con in Tampa, Florida. 

“I was there, and Candace was there, and he asked me to be his girlfriend. And I was like, ‘Yes!’ And I didn’t know at the time, but I guess Candace thought that she and Jeremy were dating,” she revealed. “[It’s] so silly. I mean, we were so young. We were like 13 years old. So, this was not any kind of serious relationship we’re talking about.”

Childhood crushes are not the only thing the stars have in common. Recently, McKellar, now 48, became a Christian and shares the same faith as Bure.

On Bure’s podcast last year, McKellar revealed how her friend impacted her decision to follow Christ.

“Candace, I don’t want to brush over the huge, huge impact that you’ve had on my life this year,” McKellar said, per the Christian Post.

“I don’t even know how to call that friendship. It’s more than that. Because of you helping me to find my relationship with God and Jesus, it’s been like a revolution in my life. It’s been a revelation in my life.”

“I am a new believer as of April of last year, and it’s been the most amazing journey and relationship,” she shared with Fox News. “I’m reading the Bible this year all the way through, which has been [a] really amazing journey.”

“It’s a lot. It’s a really long book,” McKellar added. “But I’m going to finish by the end of the year, and it’s been amazing. For me, it’s not about religion, it’s about relationship. And that’s what I’m finding so fulfilling. And…I wish it and pray it for everyone to feel the kind of peace that comes with that.” 

McKellar has starred in several projects for Great American Family. Fans can catch her in SWING INTO ROMANCE on October 7 and A ROYAL CHRISTMAS ROMANCE, premiering Thanksgiving weekend. 

Movieguide® previously reported on McKellar’s goal to read the Bible in a year: 

Danica McKellar updated fans on her 2023 commitment to read the entire Bible this year during a new episode of her Great American Community web series FAITH BITS.

“My goal is to read the entire Bible this year, and I’ve heard it’s very doable,” she started. “They say it’s like 10 to 15 minutes of reading a day.”

The actress shared that she’s reading the Bible “in a few different ways” during her challenge: reading the Bible from her friend Candace Cameron Bure, using a travel-sized Bible and listening to it through an app. 

“I love the combination, going back and forth,” she shared. “Oftentimes when I listen, I’ll go back and read what I’ve listened to, and it’s very enriching, and it’s very motivating too.”
