Candace Cameron Bure leads a pretty squeaky clean life but, in spite of this, she still finds herself smack dab in the middle of some pretty insane controversies. From her comments on submissiveness within her marriage to the seemingly racy content in Fuller House, she just can’t seem to please all of her fans. We’re looking at seven controversies that the television actress has found herself in – check it out!

7. Submissive Wife

The television actress was accused of being anti-feminist and weak when she wrote in her book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose that she takes a “submissive” role in marriage to Valeri Bure. She tried to clarify what she meant by submissive in an interview with Huffpost Live. “The definition I’m using with the word ‘submissive’ is the biblical definition of that. So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength… I love that my man is a leader. I want him to lead and those major decisions to fall on him… it doesn’t mean I don’t voice my opinion, that I don’t have an opinion – I absolutely do,” she said.

6. Recommending a Controversial Sleep Book

Back in 2008, the Fuller House star was the subject of scrutiny when she recommended a controversial parenting book, On Becoming Baby Wise, to her former Full House co-star, Jodie Sweetin. The book was seen as controversial because it recommends getting your baby on a feeding schedule from the outset, which is in direct opposition to the American Association of Pediatrics’ advice to follow your baby’s hunger cues and feed on demand.
