Jodie Sweetin may have gotten eliminated from Dancing With The Stars this week, but at least she got to perform in front of her biggest fan — who just so happens to be longtime TV sister!
Despite receiving 3 perfect 10s from the judges, the Fuller House star and partner Keo Motsepe were eliminated on week 8 of the dancing competition — though the 34-year-old didn't seem to mind stepping off the dance floor.
Not only did Sweetin reveal she was filming Season 2 of her Netflix sitcom the very next day (what would have happened had you NOT been eliminated, girl?!) but she finally got to perform in front of costar Candace Cameron Bure.

After the show, the actress told People her onscreen older sis got a bit emotional during the elimination, noting:
"She was crying more than my mom! She was, like, super ugly cry."
Though Bure's waterworks didn't come as a surprise to Sweetin, because the actresses are just as close as their on screen alter egos. Jodie continued:
"Candace is like my sister. She really, really is my sister…[She] was so excited for me tonight. It was the first time she got to come because she's been in New York, and she was so proud to see me get those 10s."
And since Bure placed third in season 18 of DWTS herself, Sweetin admits her experience has brought them even closer. She added:
"We held each other and just bawled for about 30 seconds. We're very close, and she has supported me throughout this journey and been such a huge cheerleader for me…I couldn't ask for a better family."
Awwww! Cue the sappy Full House music!
We absolutely love that these two have such a strong bond, and can't wait to see that relationship continue to grow on Fuller House!
