Earlier in the program, Bure admitted that she forgot to tell her mother, Barbara, that she was leaving. "My mom called me after the first segment because she got a Google alert about it and asked if it was fake news," she recalled.

On Thursday, the actress said that her reason for exiting the ABC show was to pursue her acting career. "It wasn't an easy decision, but before I started The View, I already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies," she explained. "Because of the success of those shows, my commitments have become even greater with those shows, and the commute going West Coast to East Coast has been tough on me and my family. I want to make sure I spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent."
