Candace Cameron Bure’s net worth benefits from the fact she’s been working since she was a child. But her role on Full House was only the start of Bure's long and lucrative career, which has included more than 25 Hallmark movies, a stint on The View and a deal with the Great American Family network, to name just a few of her buzziest (and most controversial) credits. So, how has her bank account fared through the years?

Here is everything you need to know about Candace Cameron Bure’s net worth.

What is Candace Cameron Bure's net worth?

Candace Cameron Bure has a net worth of $14 million in 2023, according to Celebrity Net Worth, but it's important to note that this figure is a combined net worth with her husband of more than 20 years, Valerie Bure, who is a retired professional hockey player.

It is not entirely clear how much Candace Cameron Bure earned from Full House. People magazine once reported that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played the youngest Tanner child, Michelle, started out making a combined $2,400 per episode when they were babies on the series and eventually saw their pay raise to $25,000 per episode, before reaching $80,000 per episode due to their popularity outside the series.

Because Bure was portraying the oldest daughter on the series, she likely began the show earning more than the actresses who played her fictional younger sister. But did she reach their financial heights? Unclear.

How much did Candace Cameron Bure make per Hallmark movie?

Candace Cameron Bure has not revealed how much Hallmark paid her per movie. However, reports suggest that Hallmark movie stars make anywhere from $50,000 to $200,000 per movie. Considering Bure made around 30 movies for Hallmark Media, we imagine she pocketed a good chunk of change from the partnership.

Why did Candace Cameron leave Hallmark?

The Dancing With the Stars alum revealed in an interview with Wall Street Journal that she left Hallmark for the Great American Family network due to “the change of leadership."

"[It is] basically a completely different network than when I started," she said of Hallmark. She drew a great deal of controversy for further stating that Great American Family will "keep traditional marriage at the core.”

“My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them," she said. "I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.”

As Hallmark had only recently made a push toward inclusivity, featuring interracial couples and working to showcase more LGBTQ+ storylines, Bure’s comments appeared to be shading her former employer's efforts. The backlash was swift.

Actress Hilarie Burton Morgan tweeted in response, “Bigot. I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank.”

JoJo Siwa condemned Bure's interview as "rude" and "hurtful."

Jodie Sweetin showed her support for Siwa, commenting “You know I love you ❤️❤️,” on Siwa's post. Bure then unfollowed her Full House co-star, suggesting the two may have had a falling out.

What network did Candace Cameron Bure go to?

Candace Cameron Bure left her longstanding relationship with Hallmark to make made-for-tv-movies for Great American Family. The move proved controversial, as statements Bure made appeared to shade Hallmark’s push toward inclusivity, especially when it came to featuring LGBTQ+ storylines.

Great American Family was created by GAC Media, which is led by the former CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, the parent company of the Hallmark Channel, Bill Abbott. Abbott’s own exit from Hallmark was rife with controversy, as the move came amidst a dispute over an ad featuring a same-sex couple. Hallmark initially pulled the ad, then apologized for doing so in response to the backlash the network received. Sources familiar with the internal discussions at the network claim that many people behind the scenes wanted the ad restored while Abbott went against those wishes and kept it from airing.

Bure and Abbott have both commented on Great American Family’s intention to focus on storylines with “traditional marriage at the core.” Bure also made it clear the Christian values of the heads of the network were important to her and that the network intends to focus on featuring the Christian faith at its center.

She said, “I think we know the core audience and what they love is exactly how Bill originally built the Hallmark Channel. That was Christmas and those traditional holidays, so that’s what the focus is going to be. You’ve got to start somewhere. You can’t do everything at once.”

How much does Candace Cameron Bure make per Great American Family movie?

Not only is Candace Cameron Bure going to star in movies for Great American Family, she will also be taking on a "prominent executive role at the company to oversee and curate programming for the networks as a whole."

However, the financial details of Bure’s deal with the controversial network have not been publicly revealed. Even so, GAF has been able to lure many Hallmark stalwarts away, so the deals are likely enticing.

What happened to Candace Cameron Bure on The View?

View the original article to see embedded media.

Candace Cameron Bure spent one year, two seasons, as a co-host on The View. She filled the conservative seat previously held by Elisabeth Hasselbeck. During her short stint on the series, Bure found herself on the receiving end of backlash more than once for defending conservative viewpoints, which were often interpreted as condoning discrimination.

One such incident saw Bure defending a bakery’s decision not to bake a wedding cake for a same sex wedding, with the Full House star stating, “I don’t think this is discrimination at all. This is about freedom of association. It's about constitutional rights. It's about First Amendment rights. We do have the right to still choose who we associate with."

This statement caused her then-cohost Raven-Symoné to respond, "I refuse to associate with you right now."

As a result of the controversies, Bure decided to vacate her seat one month after the 2016 election, revealing later, “I did not want to be the punching bag for the next four years in that conservative seat.”

What did Candace Cameron Bure make per episode on The View?

However, it has been reported that newer hosts on the series start with a salary at around $250,000 a year. It is likely Bure earned in that range for her year on the show.
