LOS ANGELES – From 2015 To 2016, Candace Cameron Bure flew back and forth, from California to New York on a weekly basis to join Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and a number of others in the semi-round table on the set of ABC’s “The View.” The “Fuller House” star doesn’t miss her commuting a bit, but she has a few thoughts about what they would like to see change in the talk show in the future.

“It’s certainly less stress, no commuting back and forth every week to ‘The View'” she told Fox News on Hallmark’s Summer TCA party in a house in Beverly Hills. “I watch it now and then because I am actually at work during the time that it is, so sometimes I’ll catch clips on Facebook or something, but I read the news. I’m so happy for Sara [Haines] that she has her own slot with Michael [Strahan] now on ‘GMA.’ That is fantastic. And Paula [Faris] is in motion. So I’m curious to see who fills that conservative seat.”

Bure noted that Meghan McCain at this moment is the conservative voice on the show, but she thinks the show could use another right-leaning panellist.

“I really hope that it is a conservative seat because I think the balance of that table,” she advised. “They have more than a conservative so I really hope that it is a conservative.”

I think it’s always nice to come back to @theviewabc ! Thanks for that I share my message of kindness today. Be the change – the effect of kindness. #Kindisthenewclassy

Dressed in a floral ML Monique Lhuillier dress, Bure posed and smiled next to her, “Fuller House” co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Lori Loughlin, who were also present at the party. 42, Bure’s as fit as she was as “Full House” aired the first time.

“You just have to take good care of your skin, which I do,” she explained her age-defying looks. “I was my face every day; I invest in my skincare; I drink a lot of water; I always have my sunscreen on; I eat healthy and I exercise, and I get to sleep. I think these are the things that keep me young.”

They’re grateful that the revival of her sitcom on Netflix is well received by the spectators and by the Television Academy. “Fuller House” is nominated for an Emmy in the category children’s programs.

Bure thinks that part of the reason that the spin-off works is because fans and viewers want a break from the negativity in the news.

“There is so much fear out there, and I think that people… when they come home, they want to close their doors, and they just want to be freed from the net and a moment just to decompress, relax, less stress,” she thought. “That’s where tv comes in. You turn on the tv so when you have a show that is reassuring… And especially if you have a family. That is the kind of program that you can watch with the whole family. And I think that’s very much a reason why it is successful.”

The series films in Los Angeles, and the fact that the mother-of-three a chance to spend more time at home with her teenage children.

“It’s all right,” she said. “I’ve been home the last few months, because I’ve done it “Fuller House” … and I still travel because most of the typical movies I do are out of town; they are not in the LA. But it is certainly less stress, no commuting back and forth every week to ‘View’.”

When they are in the city, she is fully focused on her family, but they are more crowded these days.

“My daughter is still at home. She is still singing, doing her thing with… her YouTube channel. And my boys, I have one left in high school now. He is a junior and my other son graduated, and he’s going to play hockey this year, so I will have one less child this year at home.”

But the star is not going to slow down or take a big vacation when she becomes an empty-nester.

“You would think [I want to]!” she said. “But I’m busy.”
