You can’t stop hating for one day and honor the memory of Jeanne Cooper?

So sad I’m heartbroken to learn jeanne has passed away. rip. love you jeanne._

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 know we might be sad , but knowing she’s giving orders 2 the big guy upstairs let’s me feel the confort she is pain free xoxo <3 u Jeanne

So saddened to hear of Mrs. C’s passing today had watched her on Y&R since the very beginning and I feel as though I lost a friend I watched daily on tv!!

that was my girl she made young and the restless she was the best in the business and the best that ever did it

No words.

I have been a fan of Y&R since the very beginning….why,I even played “hooky” every now and then to watch as a kid. I,among others will miss her greatly. And to reply to Jonathan…YES…THERE WILL ONLY BE ONE KATHERINE~in our hearts. Thoughts and prayers go out to her real family,friends, and fans worldwide. R.I.P. Jeanne/Katherine. I will miss you forever.

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!!

RIP you will be missed. CBS, Please DO NOT replace her. She dominated that role and no one can step into her shoes.

so sad but she is free to fly with the angels in beautiful Heaven. RIP Mrs. C, you will be missed.

So sad to hear about Jeanne Cooper’s passing! My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her Y&R family as well! Jeanne may you rest in peace! Will be missing you!

RIP Catherine, the Y & R will not be the same without you.

Soooooooooooo sad, it is like a family member died.

It’s a weird feeling. Started watching from the beginning when I was about 18. I feel like a member of my family or close friend is gone. RIP Jeanne, peace to the family, lucky to have a caring mom.

You were a one of a kind. I grew up watching you on The young and the Restless and you WILL be missed Ms. Jeanne Cooper. My prayers to all of your family for they lost an amazing Women. R.I.P

So sad… Jeanne you are already missed!!! I love what Corbin has been saying and what he said above. Thank you so much Jeanne for sharing your talent with us all of these years!!! My thoughts and prayers are with her family and I love the notion of her stirring things up in the beyond!!!

A legend. There are no words.

words cannot express how much I loved and will always love Jeanne what an amazing lady so full of spunk,i will deeply miss seeing her great smile on the young and the restless,i have been watching the show for years and the show will never be the same without her,god bless Jeanne and her family peace be with you,lisa

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.

May she rest in peace . My prayers go out to her Family and Friends . She was a great actress and will be missed .

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.

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.
