Candace Cameron Bure leaving 'The View': Was 'trying to be Superwoman'

Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure has decided her life's a little too full.

On Thursday morning, the actress and producer  led off ABC's daytime talker The View with the announcement she'd be leaving the show, citing her growing commitments to Netflix's Full House reboot Fuller House -- which adds its second season to the streaming service on Friday -- as well as to Hallmark, for which she stars in its Aurora Teagarden TV movie series and other movies.

Cameron Bure, who has three children with former NHL star Val Bure, said she's been commuting between the East and West coasts to meet all her commitments. She called the decision "bittersweet,"saying, she'd been "trying to be Superwoman, but I'm going to not try to anymore."

"You were doing too much," co-host Joy Behar told her.

"On behalf of everyone at The View, it's been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind. We are thrilled for her success with Fuller House and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of The View family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavors," said the show's executive producer, Candi Carter, in a prepared statement.
