Women of 'The View' -- Then & Now

Bure also tells Wendy Williams she's experienced "discrimination" because of her faith.

Candace Cameron Bure is one of the many women who have sat at the Hot Topics table on "The View" and, from the sound of it, she has no regrets about walking away from it.

From 2015-2016, the TV star was one of the regular co-hosts, before she left to concentrate on the "Fuller House" Netflix series and a string of Hallmark movies.

While she was happy to talk about transitioning over to "family entertainment" full-time Tuesday on "The Wendy Williams Show," the host used it as a way to ask her what we really wanted to know.

"I've chosen to be in family entertainment, that has been an intentional decision on my part," Bure explained. "I never wanted to go down a dark road, even as an actress."

Williams saw that as the perfect moment to ask, "Miss 'The View'?"

After calling out her smooth topic transition, Bure answered. "I don't miss 'The View,' at all," she explained. "I love being on talk shows, I love hosting talk shows but that was a hard job every single day, talking politics."

Wendy then asked it it was hard to also talk about Christianity so much on the show, something which sparked one especially memorable battle with Raven-Symone.

"That was the easiest part for me, to be able to talk about my faith and share my faith," Bure replied. "I'm happy right now not to be on that show and talk about lighter topics right now," she added, with a laugh.

Williams then asked if she's ever faced criticism or professional repercussions for her beliefs in the past.

"I have experienced discrimination in the faith department for sure, in my career, but I don't experience it as much now," she explained. "I think because so many people know me for it, I think they look to me for my faith. If they're not looking for that, they don't hire me."

She added that she has been booked to appear as a guest for shows in the past, only to then "get canceled a few days before," because of her beliefs. "The booker would go, 'Oh yeah, we don’t want her on.' I had that happen a handful of times."

Season 4 of "Fuller House" hits Netflix December 14, 2018.
