Danny Pintauro is the latest notable name to take shots at Candace Cameron Bure, revealed that an interview she did with him in 2015 was "one of the lowest moments" of his life.
The "Who's The Boss?" star appeared on "The View" eight years ago to discuss his HIV-positive diagnosis. During that chat, Candace accused him of a lifestyle of "heightened sex" and asked if he took any "responsibility" for "being promiscuous." He reflected on that chat on David Yontef's "Behind The Velvet Rope" podcast.
"I mean it was horrifying. It was one of the lowest moments of the journey I had after coming out to Oprah. And so it's not surprising to me that she's taking this stance with Christmas movies that she's gonna be involved in," Danny said, referring to Candace's WSJ comments that her new TV network — Great American Family — would not feature gay couples.
"She must have tons of people in her life that are LGBTQ+, at least from her past. And how she got to this place is just a little concerning to me. It's almost like she went backward in a way," Danny said. "But I do not see that happening anytime soon. I don't know enough about her backstory to know but her brother has become ultra-extreme. Has he worn off on her? So, I don't know, it's just disappointing either way, that's for sure."
Danny has never spoken to Candace about the interview.
"I'm happy to talk about it now because years have passed and I've moved on from being that HIV spokesperson sort of position," he said. "I wanted to be able to just maintain this positive … love and light tour is what I was kind of going for. So the last thing I really wanted to do was just start talking crap about her. But maybe in hindsight … well no, she's not gonna care, is she? I mean, I don't think so. It's really disappointing."
