Steve is blushing! Candace Cameron Bure, best-known for portraying DJ Tanner on the early '90s sitcom Full House, hasn't let Dancing With the Stars ruffle her feathers on the dance floor. The actress has been very vocal about her Christian faith thus far, but admits that she does turn up the sexiness with her husband, Valerie Bure.

"You know, I feel like a sexual woman — I've been married for 18 years," Bure, 37, told co-host Erin Andrews on Monday, March 24. "I am a sexual woman. But, you know, I want to reserve certain things for my husband. So we did, I think, the best that we could with the rumba that I still felt comfortable doing."

In this week's episode, Bure made it known to her partner Mark Ballas, 27, and the dancing competition's costume designer's that she would not be baring a lot of skin during the season. When she spoke of her religious faith during a pre-taped package, the crowd awaiting her performance could be heard cheering from the sidelines.

"I'm a Christian. My life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ," she said at the time. "So with the overall tone of the dance and the costumes I'm not going to take a backseat. My voice will definitely be heard."

And indeed, it has. Bure has also received support during the live tapings from her Russian NHL hockey player hubby, 39, and their three children — Natasha, 15, Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12. As for how viewers have reacted to her faith? During a Q&A Twitter chat on March 25, Bure was asked if she's received much backlash. "Not much," she replied. "Lots of support."
