In The News – March 8, 2016


Englewood Cliffs, NJ(March 8, 2016) – J-14 magazine, the number one teen celebrity magazine on newsstands today, announces that beloved actress Candace Cameron Bure and her 17-year-old daughter, Natasha, have been named teen advice columnists for the publication’s “Life’s Big Questions” column.

The Fuller House star and co-host of The View, who is a mom to three teens herself, will answer J-14 readers’ toughest questions – with advice and insight from her daughter – debuting their first of six columns in the May issue, on newsstands nationwide March 14.

Candace shares, “Natasha and I can’t wait to team up and pass along our generational experiences to readers of J-14! Natasha will be able to relate to what it is like to be a teen in 2016, offering quick and current advice. I’ll offer advice from a mother/adult perspective, but let’s not forget…I was a teen once, too!”

“Life’s Big Questions” has been a mainstay in J-14 magazine since its inception in 2010. Past contributors include singer Alexa Ray Joel and actress Elizabeth Berkley. The column has been a trusted source for readers from across the country to submit their most personal questions seeking advice about important teen issues. Candace and Natasha’s first column in J-14 will tackle topics including common teen pressures in high school: Bullying, sending racy photos to boys, being honest with parents – and more.

“J-14 has long been a safe and secure environment for today’s girls, helping them to become tomorrow’s confident women. That’s why I’m thrilled to team up with Candace, someone I personally grew up admiring on Full House,” says Brittany Galla, J-14 magazine’s editorial director. “With her heartfelt and thoughtful advice — as well as having her daughter, Natasha, as her sounding board — Candace is the perfect person to provide her insight to our readers. I know that they both will be the perfect additions to our long-standing column.”
