Whenever rumors fly about a spinoff for the beloved 90s sitcom Full House, fans from across the globe go into a throwback frenzy. But it seems they (and us!) aren't the only ones praying for the return of Uncle Jesse.
We sat down with now 37-year-old actress Candace Cameron Bure—you remember her as Donna Jo Tanner, or D.J. for short—to talk about her current projects, including a second book and juggling motherhood—a job she takes quite seriously. In fact, Candace took a 10-year hiatus from acting to be at home with her three children (now 14, 12 and 10). And, unlike many Hollywood mothers, she has never had a full-time nanny or housekeeper, but rather gets it all done with help from her husband of more than 15 years.
YourTango: What is your best memory of your Full House years?
Candace Cameron Bure: My best memories are really just being on that sound stage with the entire cast and crew rehearsing every week. We were truly like a family and had such a good time. That was my whole childhood, and every single person that was involved in that show is significant to me and in my heart one way or another.
YourTango: Do you stay in touch with your castmates?
Candace Cameron Bure: We definitely stay in touch pretty often. I'm really close to Dave Coulier and Andrea Barber and Lori Loughlin. I talk to the three of them the most. But I see Bob and John and Jodie when someone's having a dinner or a birthday party of something.
YourTango: Have you ever gone to any of Ashley and Mary Kate's runway shows?
Candace Cameron Bure: No, I haven't. I have never been to a runway show at all!
YourTango: Do you think John Stamos and Lori Loughlin would make an amazzzing real life couple? What did you think when John recently called her the 'one who got away'?
Candace Cameron Bure: Obviously, they had such great chemistry, but Lori's been married quite a long time, so I didn't think too deeply about it when he said that. If it had coordinated back in the day, [that would have been great].
YourTango: There are so many great rumors out there about a Full House reunion. What storyline would you want a spinoff to follow?
Candace Cameron Bure: I don't know! I don't want to throw any ideas out there, whether it be a reunion show or a spinoff show. I don't know what's going to happen, but if anything did happen, I would happily jump on board. In the meantime, I'm plugging away doing what I'm doing!
YourTango: Sure it was years ago, but we still can't get over the fact that "You Oughta Know" is about Joey Gladstone! Did you even know Dave Coulier and Alanis Morissette were dating back in the day?
Candace Cameron Bure: I remember listening to that song and thinking, 'This is such a cool song, I love this.' And I loved her whole album. I knew he'd been dating Alanis, and we teased him a little and never really got a straight answer from him. I don't even know if he's answered that question at all in the press.
