I know many of you don’t watch The View and probably never will but at least their new choice won’t be a lap-dog conservative, this one fight’s back!
According to Mediaite, The View producers are in final negotiations with Cameron Bure today to have her join the panel, which now includes Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, and Michelle Collins. ABC reporter Paula Faris is reportedly about to join the show as well.
She is best known for the role of D. J. Tanner, the eldest daughter, on the television series Full House which she played from ages 10 to 18. She is the younger sister of actor Kirk Cameron.
A few weeks ago, Cameron Bure made headlines when she argued about gay marriage with Symone, who is a proud lesbian.
“The Oregon law bars businesses from discriminating against sexual orientation, race, disability, age or religion,” Symone argued, “and to me, it’s the same exact thing that they did back in the day saying that black people couldn’t do certain things because it’s my ‘religious belief.’”
“I don’t think this is discrimination at all. This is about freedom of association,” Cameron Bure replied, according to US Magazine. “It’s about constitutional rights. It’s about First Amendment rights. We do have the right to still choose who we associate with.”
“[The bakery] didn’t refuse to bake the cake because of [the couple’s] sexual orientation,” she continued. “In fact, they baked cakes for them before, they had a problem with the real ceremony because that — the ceremony — is what conflicted with their religious beliefs. They are saying that they stand for marriage between a man and a woman.”
Symone eventually cut the actress off, saying “I refuse to associate with you right now.”
This is exactly the kind of fireworks that The View is looking for, so it should come as no surprise to fans that they want Cameron Bure to replace Wallace.
