I refute Soap Opera Digest’s immediate (and insensitive) reference to ‘Jeanne Cooper as ex-Katherine’; there will only ever be one Katherine, never to be replaced, only remembered, and forever missed. RIP Jeanne.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. C’s passing!! Have loved her from the very beginning! Such a classy “broad”!! I remember seeing her in an old Twilight Zone! Wasn’t watching the screen but I heard the voice and said that’s Mrs. C! I hope that Corbin will play Kaye’s theme song at her funeral….” I’m gonna live ’til I die”! I remember her singing this many times over the years. It was her mantra! And she did it her way!! She will be greatly missed by all. Jeanne and her family will be in my prayers and may they take comfort in the fact that she is now CEO in HEAVEN Inc. Love you Mrs. C!!

To the Bernsen Family…I am sending my deepest sympathy to you and your family and know that your mother and grandmother will be sadly missed by her fans and the others that just admired her. She was one of a kind and we will not see too many more like her. May she rest in peace and her family know that she is now in a far
better place with the angels and she will be watching over her family every day!
May God Bless all of you and comfort you in the coming days. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.

I was lucky enough to win an autographed copy of Jeanne’s book (from this website… thank you, Michael and Jeanne) and tonight that autograph and book is so powerful now as my family and I – who are 40 year viewers of the show – are absolutely heartbroken at such a tremendous loss. What an incredible human being that Jeanne was! Each and every one of her scenes was so heartfelt…. so visceral. It was as if we were in the same room with her; there was a connection. Her gift of communicating that special something with others was a rare thing. I wish her family and colleagues at Y&R the most sincere condolences. Thank you, Jeanne, for being a constant in our lives and someone that we looked forward to seeing and hearing each and every day.

I could not be more upset at the passing of this legend, this incredible woman. I grew up watching Jeanne bring the sass and heart of Katherine to my screen. She was beautiful inside and out and there will never be another one like her.

I will be interested to see what Y&R does now, concerning Katherine. I would assume they will have her pass away, but they better give her the sendoff this character and Jeanne deserves. If ever, now is the time for Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith to pull their heads out of their asses and not drop the ball.

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
