Playing Candace Cameron Bure Leaves 'The View': A Look Back at Her Most Memorable Moments on the Show

Candace Cameron Bure's days on The View may be over, but fans will never forget the emotional, honest and controversial conversations she brought to the table for two seasons.

The Fuller House star co-hosted her final episode of the talk show on Friday, just one day after she announced she was leaving to focus on other projects.

"I really have learned so much and I will take it with me forever," Bure said during Friday's episode. "This show is legendary and to think that I have been a part of it is really incredible."

From a surprise birthday bash to a shocking walk off set, ET's breaking down the actress' most memorable moments on the popular ABC show.

1. When she battled it out with former co-host Raven-Symoné.

Last July, the two got into a heated debate while discussing Sweet Cakes, an Oregon bakery that was facing a $135,000 fine for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. Bure claimed that the bakery should not face a fine for violating Oregon's anti-discrimination law, while Raven-Symone thought the opposite.

"I don't think this is discrimination at all," Bure explained. "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."

"I refuse to associate myself with you right now," Raven-Symoné responded, throwing major shade by looking Bure up and down and rolling her eyes. "Is that OK?"

2. When she was incredibly candid on her past struggles with an eating disorder.

When co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy Behar began making jokes on whether it was better to be bulimic or anorexic last November, Bure, who previously suffered from bulimia, cautioned them to be careful when discussing the serious disease.

"Please know that while this is in jest, as someone who has dealt with eating disorders, I don't want to make light of anyone that has it," she said. "I can joke about it because I've been there."

"I knew I had a problem, but again, it's like being on a runaway train and you wanna get off but you don't know how to get off," Bure later told ET during a sit-down interview in May. "I kind of lost my identity in a sense and what happened was I turned to food for comfort when my husband [Valeri Bure] was traveling and when I was alone. I had a very unhealthy relationship with food that turned into bulimia."

"I dealt with it for several years but it wasn't about body image and trying to feel good -- it was about trying to find comfort or fill voids within myself," she added.

3. That time her 18-year-old daughter, Natasha, surprised her onstage.

The former Dancing With the Stars contestant turned 40 in April, celebrating the special day with a sexy routine on The View with pro dancers Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy. The real highlight of the show, however, was when Natasha surprised her mother by performing a song with Christian pop duo King & Country. The sweet moment left Bure teary-eyed!

4. Her touching reaction to last year's devastating mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.

The California native couldn't hold back tears while talking about the tragic shooting that killed 14 people at the Inland Regional Center. "I'm a mom who misses her kids on the other coast," Bure said. "I'm from California and just close to the situation, but here's where I stand. I'm a conservative person -- I believe in our Second Amendment rights, but there has to be something that is sensible between both parties, that people who are allowed to get guns should have training and shouldn't be on lists. They need to come to a common ground and have some sensible gun laws, while protecting our Second Amendment rights."

"I called [one of] my son[s] this morning, and I said, 'Do you feel safe today?'" she continued. "I wanted to open the door to hear how he was emotionally feeling, and then I thought, maybe it wasn't the right way to question him because maybe I'm invoking fear into him and maybe he wasn't thinking about it, and so I don't know how to ask as a parent."

5. When she was seemingly so upset by a comment that she walked off set.

It all began when co-host Whoopi Goldberg and guest Sunny Hosting started chatting about whether Jada Pinkett Smith's Oscars boycott was the right thing to do following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy in January. Uninterested in participating in the conversation, Bure -- a longtime advocate for Christianity -- turned to Behar and asked, "Hi, Joy. How are you?"

Goldberg immediately snapped at Bure, saying, "Well, you know what, I talk about God, you gotta about these damn movies." The show then went into a commercial break, and when cameras were back on the panel of hosts, Bure was nowhere to be found.

Later, however, she clarified via Twitter that she did not leave the set due to the intense discussion, but because she wasn't feeling well.
