The bonds of Dancing With the Stars are eternal. Though her season of the dance competition wrapped months ago, Candace Cameron Bure is still supporting her pro, Mark Ballas.
The actress, 38, hit Beverly Hills' Crustacean restaurant on Tuesday, Sept. 16, for an event in celebration of the release of Ballas' debut EP, Kicking Clouds. While promoting his new music, Ballas, 28, is still fancy-footing on DWTS, this time paired with Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson.
"Sadie was great!" Bure told Us Weekly exclusively of the starlet's first performance on the show. "She was so good! I am loving that he got paired with her and I think he is the perfect partner for Sadie and I think they are going to go really far."
For her part, Bure made it to third place on Dancing With the Stars with Ballas as her partner, falling only to Amy Purdy with Derek Hough and Mirrorball Trophy winners Meryl Davis with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
"I want to go to every episode but I just want to sit in the audience," Bure continued to Us. "I don't want to be performing again because it was so nerve-wracking. I love everyone on the show and I am just a fan of the show. I do miss it but [I'm] just happy to not be performing on it."
The stars who are performing include Robertson, Mean Girls' actor Jonathan Bennett, Cheech & Chong's Tommy Chong, designer Betsey Johnson, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Alfonso Ribeiro. After the first results show on Tuesday, Olympian Lolo Jones was eliminated, and Ribeiro received the highest score from the judges.
Bure offered up some advice for the season's competitors. "Just enjoy it," she said to Us. "Really breathe through it, have fun and try to let the nerves go as much as possible. You'll probably never have this opportunity again so enjoy it while it lasts."
