After two seasons on ABC’s “The View,” Candace Cameron Bure said her life’s gotten too hectic for her continue on the morning gabfest.
The co-host announced her exit on Thursday’s show, blaming other work commitments and family considerations for her surprise departure.
“I’m very happy to be back, but it’s a little bittersweet for me today because I’m announcing that I’m leaving ‘The View,'” she said. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but before I started ‘The View,’ I already had my commitments to ‘Fuller House’ and my work with the Hallmark Channel.”
“Because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows and the commute of going West Coast to East Coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well and I want to make sure that I am able to spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent.”
“The View” sent FOX411 a statement from Executive Producer Candi Carter, stating: “On behalf of everyone at ‘The View,’ it’s been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind. We are thrilled for her success with ‘Fuller House’ and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of ‘The View’ family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavors.”
Bure, 40, said juggling multiple jobs along with a husband and three children was just too much.
“I tried to be Superwoman, but I’m going to not try anymore,” she said.
Bure joins a long exit line from the long-running show. In October, Raven-Symone gave her walking papers after comedian Michelle Collins left in June. Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Paula Faris, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and Jedediah Bila remain.
Bure’s final show date was not announced.
