Lacey Chabert is publicly showing her support for Hallmark Channel after Candace Cameron Bure decided to part ways with the network. “I’m able to be more of who I am here than possibly anywhere else I’ve worked,” Chabert, 40, told Vulture.

The fan-favorite actress went on to say she was happy with the changes that were occurring behind the scenes with the networks. “Any shift I’ve felt has been embracing our creative ideas. And it’s my responsibility to the audience who continue to tune into my movies that I give the best I have to offer. That’s always my mission,” she noted.

She added, “I’ll never abandon what Hallmark means for me, which is that everything is centered around the heart. I don’t think there are any plans for that to change anytime soon.”

Lacey Chabert, a Hallmark Staple

The Mean Girls actress’ comments come a month after Bure made heavy headlines after announcing her departure from Hallmark to Great American Family. This after the actress first appeared on The Hallmark Channel in 2008 and remained loyal to the network for a whopping 14 years.

“My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them,” Cameron Bure told WSJ. Magazine back in November. “I knew that the people behind the Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.”

At that time, Bure had explained that Hallmark was a “completely different network” after former CEO Bill Abbott decided to step down in 2020. This was after controversy arose over the removal of an ad that featured a same-sex couple. Oddly enough, Abbott, 60, went on to become CEO and President of Great American Media.

In response to several questions made about GAF’s plans to include LGBTQ+ movies on the network, Bure replied, “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”

Bure quickly. received backlash for her comments, which she posted an Instagram in response. “All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people,” Bure wrote via Instagram. “It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone. It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever.”

Chabert offered her own insight over Bures’ controversial statement, saying, “You know what, I wish everybody the best. I really can’t comment on it further other than I care about everybody involved.“

Great not, Chabert did say that she didn’t plan to leave Hallmark anytime soon. “I’m with Hallmark, and I work for them. I’m so sorry, but I’ll just have to leave it at that,” she stated.
