Bob Saget Defends Candace Cameron Bure Against Critics Who Claim She’s “Fake”

Some people know Candace Cameron Bure as DJ Tanner from Full House back in the day. She was a pretty peppy actress back then, and if you follow her on social media these days, you might find that it’s only followed her into adulthood. In most of her videos, you might find her to be a bubbly person.

However, some people take her upbeat personality to be a little too perky for some. In fact, she’s even gone so far as to be called “fake,” which she admitted on a recent appearance on Bob Saget’s “Here for You” podcast.

Bob, who played her TV father for many years, knows Candace well, completely disagreed with fans, and defended her when she asked him what he thought about the idea of her being called fake. In fact, he had quite a bit to say here to clarify things for the critics.

“When you are doing anything, you don’t phone it in,” said Saget. “You’re a businesswoman. You sell things and you try to put your branding on it. That means something to you. You’re not going to sell something that doesn’t mean anything to you, and you’re not faking. … It’s beautiful the way you’re doing it, and you’re doing it earnest. And I’m sorry you’re perky sometimes! What’s wrong with being perky?”

Bob continued to explain that the reason he knows how just not fake she really is because he’s known her since she was just a tot. He says that she has always exuded that type of bubbliness that some people are confusing with fakeness.

“When you watch the old episodes (of “Full House”), when it first started, you did have that positive light in your eyes that I did at 10 years old,” he said. “You had a very positive glow about you, period. That’s what you were like. And that doesn’t mean you don’t become a teenager and go through the stuff that girls and women and men and boys go through. You know, 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.”

Candace said that she was able to ignore the comments she got about it, but it still irks her when people find her happiness annoying.

“There’s nothing fake about you,” Bob concluded.
