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

Originally posted 04/23/2014 02:45PM

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.

Candace Cameron Bure's DWTS Blog: I Hope to Rebound on Disney Night

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 for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.

I'm so looking forward to tonight's show for many reasons.

Last week was the switch-up, where Tony [Dovolani] and I danced the quickstep. I have so many thoughts regarding the week in its entirety, but most importantly, I loved getting to know Tony. We had a blast together. The punk rock costume, hair and makeup was one of my favorites and overall I just felt great about our dance.

I will say that I was very disappointed in our scores. I felt like the dance went really well and I hit everything Tony was teaching me. I do understand that one of the connection points in my frame wasn't tight enough, but it wasn't something we focused on, so I was a bit confused. Now standing at the bottom of the leader board, I really hope my fans have pushed me through to another week. I really don't want to go home tonight!

Dancing with the Stars Double Elimination: Who Went Home?

Originally posted 03/24/2014 10:25PM

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.

Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."

Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

I can't believe Carrie Ann Inaba gave me a 9 on my first dance! Mark and I were ecstatic!

I guess the lights, the camera and the thrill of performing live gave me an extra boost that even Mark was surprised to see. I really did give it my all that night and was happy with my overall performance.

Another season of Dancing with the Stars kicked off on Monday night, with no shortage of fancy footwork to hit the ballroom.

Although the night consisted of many highs from a number of talented contestants, it was Olympic gold medalist ice skating partners-turned-DWTS-competitors Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who gained most of the buzz leading up to the show's 18th season.

I'm hurting a lot today. I still have energy, but I'm just incredibly sore and beat up. It is what I expected, but the contemporary dance, which is what we're starting with, has proven to physically be beyond what I had expected.

We're literally rolling on the floor for some of this dance. I've done races and mud runs and I've crawled up hills under barbed wire, and I've never had bruises bigger than the bruises I have now from doing this dance.
