Candace Cameron Bure's Blog: I'm Performing a Duel Dance with Charlie White

Candace Cameron Bure kicked off her career at age 10, starring in the popular series Full House. Since the series wrapped in '95, the actress got married, had three kids and wrote two books. She's been paired with two-time mirror ball winning champ Mark Ballas for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.

I can't believe we're going into week eight and I'm still here! Whoo hoo! My personal goal was to make it to week six, so anything after this is just a cherry on top.

After this week's show, we're in the home stretch with only the semi-finals and finale left. I'm giving it my all and am proud of my efforts no matter what the outcome and again want to thank you all for you support. It's been tremendous!

Candace Cameron Bure: 'I'm the Dark Horse in the Dancing with the Stars Race'

Originally posted 05/04/2014 02:30PM

Candace Cameron Bure hasn't just picked up some new moves while competing on Dancing with the Stars, she's also learned a lot about herself in the process.

"Apparently I'm a perfectionist, which I didn't know before," she told PEOPLE Friday at the Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A. "I guess I have some perfectionistic qualities when it comes to my own performance. I'm learning to lower my own expectations as far as having unrealistic expectations of myself."

But the former Full House star, whose partner is Mark Ballas, said that she's exceeded her own expectations about how far she'd make it in the competition.

It was Latin week on DWTS last night and it was one exciting show! I'm still catching my breath and playing catch up since it was such a busy week. Not only did I have to learn the Argentine tango, but we also learned a group dance that included a solo. So, two dances in two-and-a-half days was crazy!

I traveled to New York in the middle of the week, co-hosting The View and dropping by ABC News, VH1 and Hannity for interviews. Because of my trip to the East Coast, Mark and I went into double rehearsal shifts to make up the time and man it was exhausting!

Dancing with the Stars: NeNe Leakes Gets Booted, Amy Purdy Is Injured

Originally posted 04/28/2014 10:40PM

Latin was the theme of Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, and even guest judge Ricky Martin brought the heat.

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough were declared safe right away and kicked off the night with a 36-out-of-40-point rumba to a slowed-down rendition of "Light My Fire" by the Doors.

"You lit my fire! ... First out, first class," head judge Len Goodman told the pair, while Martin gushed, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."

But the night wasn't entirely a win for Purdy, who was sent to the hospital shortly after her performance with a shoulder injury. She was unable to perform the group dance with her team at the end of the evening, and the dress rehearsal dance was used to judge the routine (more on that later).

Candace Cameron Bure: I Know People Don't Agree with My Beliefs

Not everyone is going to agree with Candace Cameron Bure's evangelical Christian beliefs – and she's okay with that.

"As much as you want to try and explain your position to people, sometimes at the end of the day it is not worth it," the former Full House star tells PEOPLE. "I need to invest my time in my family and not trying to please everybody or getting them to see my own point of view."

As a contestant on this season of Dancing with the Stars, Bure, 38, has garnered praise and criticism for her conservative beliefs and her "boundaries" that have left her modestly clothed and with fully-dressed partners (even when pro dancer Mark Ballas wanted to show off his abs).

Get ready to par-TAY!

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars showcased party anthems, with guest judge Redfoo from LMFAO helping to weed out the ho-hum from the fun.

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd entered as the charmed couple after getting a perfect score on Disney week, while Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas were just holding on and Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke hoped that audience scores would prop them up for another week.

Except, that didn't happen.
