Earlier this month, Candace Cameron Bure (that’s DJ Tanner to you and me) was a guest co-host on The View and they got into talking about that bakery in Oregon that was ordered to pay $135,000 in damages for refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. DJ Tanner is Kirk Cameron’s sister in almost every way (I’m sure there’s a picture out there of her at the loneliest office birthday party in the world) so she was the voice of the conservative Christian and took the bakery’s side. Raven Symone took the lesbian couple’s side and it was on. I expected to see smoke wafting off of DJ Tanner’s face, because Raven shot piping hot death stares at her. It was a TGIF vs. Disney showdown! Here’s the clip in case you’ve never seen it:
When that happened, I just knew that the producers were probably filling their panties with the cream they squirted out while thinking about all the attention that moment would get. I also knew that they’d most likely try to hire DJ Tanner full-time. Because to them, DJ Tanner and Raven are probably the second coming of Elisabeth Hasselcrack and Rosie O’Donnell. Well, Variety says that producers want DJ Tanner, because she’ll bring Christian Republican eyes to the show. They’re also in talks with Paula Faris of Good Morning America Weekend, because she can fill the show’s “news journalist” spot.
The source says that Paula will be on Monday thru Thursday and will sit out on Fridays, because she has to get ready to host GMA Weekend. The producers will have to work around DJ Tanner’s schedule for Fuller House, which shoots in L.A. The producers are also going to be put together a group of substitute messes who will fill in when DJ Tanner and Paula are gone. They’re talking to Molly Sims, Stacy London, Nicolle Wallace and Sherri Shepherd (THE FUCK?!) about taking those spots.
If DJ Tanner and Paula Santis’ deals work out, they’ll join Whoopi Goldberg, Raven and Michelle Collins when the new season starts in September.
The only thing I have to say about this right now is: It should’ve been Kimmy Gibbler. It REALLY should’ve been Kimmy Gibbler.
