“So, in 1989, I believe it was, there was this party that a teen magazine was putting on and [Growing Pains star] Jeremy Miller, who was also a young actor, he was at this party,” McKellar, 48, told Fox News. “I was there, and Candace was there. and he asked me to be his girlfriend. And I was like, ‘Yes!’”
From there, things get slightly messy — according to McKellar, Bure also thought she was dating Miller at the time. The Full House alum first met Miller, now 46, when he starred alongside her brother Kirk on Growing Pains.
McKellar only realized what had really happened many years later when the she and Bure, now 47, were both on Dancing with the Stars in 2014.
“I found out that she was like, ‘Oh, we were dating.’ I’m like, ‘What?’” McKellar recalled. “So Jeremy, tsk, tsk, not good.”
Luckily for all three, there were no hard feelings in the end. Looking back, McKellar called the whole love triangle “so silly.”
“I mean, we were so young. We were like 13 years old. So, this was not any kind of serious relationship we’re talking about,” the actress reflected. “Luckily my friendship with Candace has survived just fine.”
The actresses have continued to work together in recent years on the Great American Family network, which the Full House alum serves as chief creative officer of. McKellar’s latest project Swing Into Romance is set to premiere on the channel Oct. 7 as part of the network’s Autumn Harvest event.
Per the network description, the film stars McKellar as former dancer Christine Sims, who temporarily returns to her hometown in time for the town’s Fall Festival and discovers her family’s General Store is in trouble. In her efforts to save the business, Christine will need to dust off those dancing shoes one more time, face her ex-fiancé, and maybe even find love.
“I’ve been wanting to dance in a movie since I was on Dancing with the Stars in 2014, but I’ve always loved dancing,” McKellar told PEOPLE in July. “My mom was a professional dancer before I was born, so the love of dance is in my genes.”
The actress will star alongside David Haydn-Jones and DWTS favorite Gleb Savchenko. She serves as an executive producer on the film. Her husband, Scott Sveslosky, also wrote the script.
Swing Into Romance premieres at 8 p.m. ET on Great American Family.
