Candace Cameron Bure: Balancing It All

Candace Cameron-Bure’s new book, ‘Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose’ is on sale now.

DJ Tanner would gladly get in touch with her inner streetwalker — if the role was right, of course.

“It really depends on the story because I am an actress,” says former FULL HOUSE sweetheart Candace Cameron-Bure, 37.

“I don’t want to play myself otherwise I would be a host, so I can’t say I would never play a hooker. It would depend on the story. Is there something redeeming about the character or within the story? Is something going to be taught? If the answer is yes, then absolutely I’ll play a hooker.”

Candace – the wife of former NHL star Valeri Bure and a mother of three — made her rather shocking revelation to Fox411 Tuesday while promoting her new memoir BALANCING IT ALL: MY STORY OF JUGGLING PRIORITIES AND PURPOSE.

The one-time child star also suggested that her 17 year-old marriage remains strong, in part, because she has learned to be submissive and respect her husband.

“I can go back to the Bible and the Bible says, ‘Wives respect your husbands and husbands love your wives,’” she notes.
“There’s a difference between men and women. I know my husband doesn’t need the type of love I require that is much more caring and sensitive in nature like, “Oh honey you look wonderful.” It’s like my husband doesn’t need to hear that on a daily basis like I do. But he needs to be respected. I like that my husband is a leader, he’s a man’s man. I want him to lead our family. It doesn’t mean we don’t make decisions together.

“It doesn’t mean I don’t have a voice in our marriage, of course I do. I’m a very strong woman and an opinionated woman but I don’t think a marriage is at its best when you have two people vying for the same position so someone has to yield at some point and ultimately I will defer to my husband. That’s not to say he isn’t constantly going, “Well what do you think?” And we compromise on things, but ultimately he makes the decision. I know that makes him feel respected as the man of our home. We’ve been married for 17 years and that’s short compared to my parents and grandparents. Some people think my perspective is old fashioned. I’m not trying to say I’ve got it all down. I certainly don’t.”
