Candace Cameron Bure’s Husband Learned English Watching ‘Full House’ So He Must Be Unbearable
There's no feature more attractive in a husband than knowing he learned English by watching you on television during your awkward years. Am I right, ladies? No, I'm not right. This sounds horrible, but it is reality for Candace Cameron Bure whose husband learned English by watching Full House. Her husband, Valeri Bure, is Russian and moved to the U.S. when he was 17. He is now 39 meaning he moved in 1992 right in the middle of Full House's reign. (The show aired from 1987 to 1995).
If Valeri learned English from watching the crazy shenanigans of Full House, maybe he still uses some of the show's classic catchphrases today. Let's imagine...
"You got it, dude!" - Michelle Tanner
Valeri uses this one when Candace asks him to wash the dishes or take out the trash. He also uses it passive aggressively when he doesn't want to do something. He may speak English as a second language, but he's been with Candace long enough to know that a sarcastic "You got it, dude" really pushes her buttons.
"Have mercy!" - Uncle Jesse
The Bures have three children, a 15-year-old daughter, Natasha, and two sons, Lev, 14, and Maksim, 12. That's a lot of puberty to deal with, so Valeri uses "Have mercy!" whenever his kids are driving him nuts.
"How rude!" - Stephanie Tanner
When an aggressive driver cuts him off on the highway.
"Oh Mylanta!" - DJ Tanner
You don't wanna know. Let's just say it's for the couple's private moments.
"Watch the hair, huh!" - Uncle Jesse
Valeri is a former NHL player. He used this one when fellow players would high-stick.
"You're in big trouble, mister!" - Michelle Tanner
If the dog (which they may or may not actually have) pees on the rug.
"No way, Jose." - Michelle Tanner
His daughter wants to stay out past curfew? "No way, Jose."
"Well pin a rose on your nose." - Stephanie Tanner
For the times when Valeri is sick of hearing Candace talk about all the moves she learned during Dancing with the Stars practice. "Seriously? I'm trying to tell you about my dancing and you're going to Stephanie Tanner me?" "No, babe, I'm being serious. You know how I learned English. I can't help this."
