Ali on the Run Show Episode 209: Catching Up with Andrea Barber

“I’m an open book. I have no shame about anything I have gone through or felt.”

Andrea Barber — perhaps best known as Kimmy Gibbler on Full House and the Netflix revival Fuller House — is back on the Ali on the Run Show! And this time, she’s a published author! Andrea’s first book, Full Circle: From Hollywood to Real Life and Back Again, came out late last year, and it’s a hit. (I’m not just saying this because Andrea is a friend: This book is fantastic.) Full Circle isn’t a salacious Hollywood memoir or tell-all. It’s real and it’s honest, and in it, Andrea shares her story in a raw, visceral way. On this episode, Andrea and I catch up on what’s new in her life — including why her home is filled with thousands of boxes of Girl Scout Cookies, and what it was like wrapping the fifth and final season of Fuller House — and we talk about some of my favorite parts of the book, including her uncensored stories about depression, anxiety, and divorce.
