Kimmy Gibbler, is that you!? Candace Cameron Bure was joined by some of her former costars for a special Full House reunion on Dancing With the Stars Monday night. As part of the “Most Memorable Year of Your Life” theme, Bure chose 1995 — the year the ’90s sitcom ended and when she tied the knot with husband Valerie Bure.
For the special tribute, the 37-year-old actress was joined by costars and longtime friends Lori Loughlin (Aunt Rebecca) and Andrea Barber (Gibbler) for her pre-taped package. Loughlin, 49, dished on how Bure had her first kiss on the fan-favorite series, and Barber, 37, couldn’t help but get teary-eyed about her best friend doing so well on the dancing competition.
Barber continued her support by attending the live show, and brought some eye candy with her! “Got me a hot date for the ballroom tonight. Shhh…don’t tell Deej! @scottweinger #DWTS,” she quipped via Instagram. (Weinger played Bure’s onscreen boyfriend Steve.)
After rocking the dance floor — and scoring a 32! — Bure told Us what it was like to pay homage to her D.J. Tanner years. “I’ve been acting since I was five years old and finished Full House when I was 18 years old! So it was my whole entire childhood,” she said. “It was wonderful, I wouldn’t change my childhood for anything. I got to experience a ton of things that most kids wouldn’t have an opportunity to. It was a wonderful time.”
Bure has also received continued support from husband Bure and their three children — Natasha, 15, Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12. An insider told Us the kids sat front row while the Russian NHL hockey player, 39, mingled with Barber and Weinger throughout the show.
“They absolutely love it! They really do,” Bure told Us of her children. “My daughter was here all day with me and she was at rehearsal, and she’s like, ‘Mom, I’m going to need more face! You’re going to have to give it and really just let go and have fun!’ She’s a little like my security blanket though, she helps me stay calm when I’m nervous, so I love that.”
“The cutest thing is just that he’s coming every week!” she added of her husband. “That probably sounds silly but sometimes it’s hard to sit in an audience for two hours and he’s had a long day because he’s doing everything with the kids! The very fact that he’s in that seat every week means the world to me. That’s a huge support to me.”
