'Full House' star: Submissive wife, happy life?

  • Bure chats about her new book and why she says people need to calm down about the 's-word'

"Full House" alum Candace Cameron Bure is raising a lot of eyebrows in her new book, "Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose."  In it, she talks about being a working wife and mother and revealed the key to making her marriage to pro hockey player Val Bure work: being "submissive."

She wrote, "I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work."

Bure further explained what she meant in an interview with the Huffington Post, saying, "The definition I'm using with the word 'submissive' is the biblical definition... So, it is meekness, it is not weakness.  It is strength under control, it is bridled strength.  And that's what I choose to have in my marriage." 

That sent the Internet into a tizzy.  While her supporters rallied around her, others went so far to say she sent womanhood back 100 years. 

In response, Bure posted this pic on Instagram to rebuff her critics.

HLN's Vinnie Politan chatted with Bure about her new book and why she says people need to calm down about the "s-word."
