“And so every year it kind of makes me sicker and sicker every time I have a movie to come out because I’m like, Is this going to be the year? Is this it?” Candace revealed. “And I had to have a come-to-Jesus moment with myself in 2020 because I thought, Why are you doing this? Meaning, why are you making the movies? I had to bring it back to my why—my why that I set 12 years ago, coming back to the industry.”
Ultimately, the former Dancing With the Stars contestant has decided she shoots the films because she loves acting and the connections she makes, regardless of the ratings. Thankfully, this helped her feel better in the past year.
“I had to remind myself of my why and then let it go and just say, You know what, it doesn’t matter what those ratings are,” she added.
In a different podcast interview last month, Candace discussed the fact that making the movies might be more challenging than some people realize.
Luckily, now that the star has figured out how to focus less on the numbers, she can keep making these movies, and the rest of us can keep watching them.
