If Candace Cameron Bure Called The Shots On "Full House"

The star (and mom!) imagined with BuzzFeed Life how the Tanner house might have been different if she'd been in charge.

DJ Tanner is all grown up. Now the star of Hallmark's Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, premiering this week, mom of three Candace Cameron Bure stopped by the BuzzFeed offices to weigh in on some of Danny Tanner's most eyebrow-raising parenting moments.

Scenario One: Danny thought that DJ's boyfriend Viper was a real rebel and even tried to break them up.


Scenario Two: When Danny and Vicky got serious and decided to make dinner for the family, Danny gave Michelle and Stephanie $5 each to behave themselves and pretend to like her cooking.

Scenario Three: When DJ's boyfriend Steve got his first apartment, DJ accidentally fell asleep on his couch and missed her curfew. By hour two Danny was peeking through Steve's windows to see what she was up to.


Scenario Four: When Stephanie was pressured to smoke, Danny told her that it was up to her to decide if she wanted to be friends with the kids who pressured her -- he wouldn't stand in her way.

Scenario Five: When ten year old DJ illegally won $100,000 in a slot machine, Danny said she had to give the money back.


Scenario Six: DJ goes to the drive-in with a boy who is known not to take "no" for an answer. Danny and the Uncles track her down and crash her date.

Could Candace ever see herself showing up on her kid's date?

"I'm like actually really thinking about these questions. That's how tired I am. But, no she was old enough to be on a date."

Scenario Seven: The Tanner girls were always bringing home new pets without permission. DJ bought a horse. Michelle bought a donkey. Danny wasn't having either.


Scenario Eight: When Grandma Tanner came to visit Danny asked everyone to act helpless so she would feel needed.

Scenario Nine: Danny let DJ hang around with Kimmy even though she was constantly getting in to trouble.


Scenario Ten: When DJ got a royal blue sweater for Valentine's Day and the school gardener shredded it with his lawnmower, Steph stole her a new one. After Joey caught them, Danny made the girls return the sweater, but ultimately no one was punished.


Catch Candace as the title character in the first of nine films, A Bone To Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery, premiering April 4th on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
