During the Oct. 13 episode of The View’s special podcast series, Behind The Table, the Fuller House alum opened up about her experience serving as a co-host in seasons 19 and 20, which aired in 2015 and 2016.
“The stress and the anxiety—I actually have a pit in my stomach right now,” Bure admitted. “There was only one type of stress that I’ve ever felt in my life, that came from that show. And I [have] PTSD, like, I can feel it. It was so difficult, and to manage that emotional stress was very, very hard.”
The Hallmark Channel mainstay explained that she felt “enormous pressure” to represent conservatives on the larger scale of national television, adding, “[I was] just trying to understand and have a general grasp of topics that I didn’t want to talk about or didn’t care about.”
When Bure announced her departure from The View in December 2016, she cited prior commitments, which included filming Fuller House for Netflix around the same time. And the star ultimately has no regrets about her time at the table, saying she “really grew” during those two seasons. Noted Bure, “I felt like after walking away, if I can do that, I can do anything.”
