Exciting news for all of you Dancing with the Stars fanatics! The season 18 lineup has been revealed!
DWTS host Tom Bergeron and his new partner Erin Andrews, who is replacing Brooke Burke, revealed the names of the celebrities that would be joining the cast this season, early Tuesday morning, on Good Morning America.
Among those is none other than Candace Cameron Bure, best known for her role as DJ Tanner on the 90’s sitcom Full House. Since the finale of Full House, Cameron has remained busy, both in her professional and personal life. She married her husband Val Bure in 1996 and together they had three children. In 2011, she released her first book, Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness, which became an instant New York Times best seller. In January 2014, Candace’s second book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose hit shelves.
Although she took a ten-year break from acting to focus on her children, Candace went back to acting in 2006 for a guest appearance on Disney’s That’s So Raven. Her most well-known recent role, however, was on ABC’s hit show Make It or Break It, which ran from 2009-2012.
