Jojo Siwa’s mother, Jessalynn Siwa, shared her side of things after her daughter said Candace Cameron Bure was the “rudest celebrity” she’s ever met in a TikTok challenge last month.
The former dance teacher, 47, took to Instagram on Monday, August 1, to share a clip from a previous episode of her Success With Jess podcast in which she opened up about JoJo’s run-in with Bure, 46.
“I talked about this on my podcast a while back. The recent story told wasn’t quite right so here is the real version,” Jessalynn captioned the post.
“At the end of the day this story, it’s not about a simple photo it’s about how you treat people.”
The entrepreneur recalled attending a premiere for Fuller House with JoJo in Los Angeles.
“It was kind of crowded because it wasn’t a huge theater where they had a lot of people,” she continued.
“Then JoJo ran into DJ and was like, ‘Oh, my God, I love you so much. Can we please take a selfie?’ And she was like, ‘Not now. Maybe later.’ Word for word — ‘Not now, maybe later.’”
“I go, ‘If she even asks you for a picture, please say: not now, maybe later,’” Jessalynn recalled joking to her daughter.
“Candace just couldn’t be bothered. … I do not know what was going on, but it is funny when you don’t know and somebody treats you like that? And it is hard to be a celebrity, I will give that to you. But that was so long ago — I can’t even tell you — and I still remember it.”
