She would've been so interesting on this topic!

Speaking out at a pre-Emmys party, Candace said of the nurse controversy, and whether she dodged a bullet by missing it:
"I did dodge a bullet although I wish I were there because I would have had some other words to say, which were how much I appreciate nurses. We couldn't do what they do. Doctors couldn't do what they do without the nurses. I'm so appreciative and grateful of nurses. I kind of let [the ladies] sort it out because you don't want to come in and go ‘Oh, I'm going to be the hero and the good person over all of this' because I think it was an unfortunate mistake. They were trying to make a joke that didn't quite go over well in the talent department and it wasn't to say that nurses aren't talented."
There is one thing that she liked, though — bringing nurses on to make amends after the controversy hit! Candace said:
"I'm glad they brought all of the nurses back on and they gave an apology to them and they celebrated them and that's exactly what they should have done. I wish I were there and I could of genuinely apologized to them and told them how much I appreciate them because I truly mean it. I've been with so many nurses and I understand what they go through," she explained. "I've said sometimes a nurse is the only ray of sunshine that you see in a day when you're at a hospital."
