It's disheartening to hear about all the sexual harassment allegations surfacing in Hollywood, and "Fuller House" star Candace Cameron Bure admits to being worried for her daughter Natasha, who has now joined the industry.
In order to protect Natasha, Candace has given her advice on what to do should she encounter a sexual predator - uphold her values and speak out when necessary.
"My daughter is in the industry, so those are conversations that we have and really that I've been having with my children since they were young because that's what parenting is about and helping them be secure with who they are and having moral boundaries and knowing what's right and what's wrong and what's appropriate for people to ask of you and not and not to be afraid to speak out," she shared with E! News.
"As a mom, the only other thing you can do is pray," she continued.
The sexual allegations started against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, followed by "House of Cards" star Kevin Spacey and several others including "Gossip Girl" alum Ed Westwick, who has been accused of rape, an accusation he denies.
Candace said she has been horrified by all the stories, and is glad women in showbiz are supporting each other and being brave enough to open up about their past trauma.
"I can't imagine. It's horrific listening to all the stories," she said. "Thinking about what so many women have gone through and the courage they have to come out as well. I'm glad it's all being exposed and I hope that we can eventually put an end to it."
The most recent target of the accusations is "Today" host Matt Lauer, and Bure said she was "shocked" to hear what he has allegedly done. "Shocked like the rest of the world, but we don't know people personally and what happens behind closed doors so we'll just wait for more details, but very sad," she said.
Lauer has offered an apology for his actions, although he also claimed there were some things being said about him that are "untrue or mischaracterized." Still, "there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed," Lauer said in a statement. "I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly."
"There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions," he added. "To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC."
