He revealed that she’s not “fake,” in fact she’s “the opposite.” The actress wanted her co-star to respond to the criticism she’s received about coming across as a “fake person.” Saget claims that she’s “such a happy person,” which can come across the wrong way.

“I’m going to ask you to talk about me for a second,” Cameron Bure said on the podcast. “For those people that think that because I am a happy, positive person, that I must be a fake person, would you say that that’s true or false?”
“You’re the opposite of fake,” Saget responded. “And I’m sorry — you’re perky sometimes. What’s wrong with being perky?”
The two first worked together on the set of Full House in 1987. They later reunited for the Netflix revival, Fuller House. On the show, Saget plays her father, Danny Tanner.
