Despite 21 Years Of Marriage, Candace Cameron Reveals Reason Husband Refuses To Visit Her On Set

Who could resist the antics and expressions of the adorable youngest Tanner sister Michelle, the mischievous middle sister Stephanie or the responsible, heartwarming attitude of the oldest sister, DJ, who starred in the all-American good-natured sitcom Full House? This hit TV show aired between 1987 and 1995, and families across the country tuned in to see just what craziness dad Danny, Uncle Jesse and best bud Joey were up to with the girls.
What was even neater for fans was to watch the three girls grow up on screen right before their eyes. Today, Candace Cameron Bure who played DJ, is a mom of three kids in real life. She married her husband, NHL hockey player Valeri Bure, in June 1996. They are the proud parents of Natasha and twin boys Lev and Maksim.
Candace says Valeri is her rock and their faith is what has gotten the two of them through life's ups and downs. Her real-life older brother Kirk Cameron, who starred as the oldest sibling on the TV sitcom Growing Pains, has been very bold and outspoken about his faith and how important religion has been in his own life, something little sister Candace will agree with.
So when Netflix revived Full House and created the show Fuller House, fans were thrilled! The producers brought back Candace as the lead actress who now plays a mom who has lost her spouse, just like her TV dad Danny did. But Candace's husband Valeri refuses to watch the newer episodes!
That's because Candace's character DJ, who became a single mom when her TV husband perished while on duty as a firefighter, has to learn to live again -- and love again. That means that DJ has to kiss other men.
Granted, they are only on-screen love interests, Candace confesses that she isn't thrilled about it. She admits this makes her cringe. She doesn't enjoy romantically engaging with a co-star even when the script calls for it.
In fact, Valeri is so opposed to it that he won't even visit his wife on the set. Candace said he gets upset when he thinks about his wife smooching another guy, even if it is only acting.
Candace is thankful that her hubby hasn't insisted she stop acting altogether, even though it means she likely will have on-air love interests. It's a profession she's grown up in and one that she's good at.
Interestingly, Candace's brother Kirk feels the same way as his sister and brother-in-law about on-screen kissing co-stars. He actually has his real-life wife stand-in when he must kiss a character.
Unfortunately, Valeri so far hasn't resembled any of Candace's on-screen love interests and hasn't been able to pop in as a double. But who knows, maybe some video magic could be worked so they both feel more comfortable about this aspect of acting?
