Well I will have my box of kleenex ready because I’m sure I will crying throughout the whole show. And this is to Michael and/or his team- on your Popular Content section you have up the earlier post that Jeanne is still alive- I know at the time it must have gotten a lot of comments, but now that she has passed I think it might be confusing to see it- some might think she is still alive when she is not–so you might want to take that off the list. Thanks.

I’m happy about the decision to honor Mrs. C. Tuesdays date will give the family a chance to recuperate and the producers of Y&R and the family to obtain the best recordings to honor her. I’m going to miss her.

That is wonderful. She deserves several episodes in her honor. She worked on the show for 40 years and in heavy story, not just supporting cast.

I’ll be watching and crying, I’m sure.

I’m so glad they are doing a tribute to the Duchess, just thought it might be sooner. She will be missed. We always loved her laugh most of all. She was my moms favorite & they passed away 3 months apart. RIP Mrs. C.

I knew there would be a tribute. I never doubted it for a minute.. We know you tape we’ll in advance so you would not know about this till it happened. We just have to be patient. It will happen ASAP. Good luck! We know it will be a great tribute. Mrs. C (Jeanne ) will be sadly missed.

It is awesome that there will be a tribute to her-no one deserves it more. However, I think her final tribute/legacy is that all of the actors that she helped will continue to carry on the work that she so loved and in that love taught them. As well as her children, they are her legacy.

I wonder if the Memorial Day rerun will be a strong Jeanne Cooper episode. Hope so.

If there are going to write her passing into an episode, I think they should combine Bold and The Beautiful with Young and The Restless for one additonal tribute/funeral episode. Pretty much every actor on both shows have worked on one or the other and there has been cross over of characters.

Ellen

The fans as well as the young and restless cast need this to say a final good bye to a brilliant, talented, wonderful actress and human being. The show must go on but don’t
know how it will without this incredible lady. I truly loved jeanne Cooper as a person and as an actress. As far as the show goes i hope the writers give her the proper send off that she truly deserves. We love you, Mrs. C.

If they are taping 5-6 weeks ahead, Katherine’s death will not happen until at least mid-June unless they edit.

So glad to hear this. Jeanne deserves to be honored. She was the glue of that show and will be missed eternally. I was raised watching her and this soap, as my mother has watched since day one. We both cried..we loved her and it won’t be the same without her. She always felt like another grandmother to me. R.I.P. Jeanne xo

Very sad news, My wife and I have been watching for years. A tribute fit for the Duchess , she deserves that. You know she will always be Mrs Chancellor in my eyes. I wrote down on a piece of paper the date for the tribute so we don’t miss it and what did I write not Jeanne Cooper but Mrs Chancellor tribute thats how powerful her acting that role was. THE DUCHESS WILL BE MISSED . RIP

I am so glad a tribute will be aired so all of her fans can bid her farewell. A lovely lady and will be missed by many who have followed her as Katherine Chanceller all of these years. My deepest condolences to her family.

Thank God CBS and Sony will honor her in a befitting manner. She gave a good part of the latter part of her life to Y&R. No one deserves it more than she does. And hopefully her real life family will be there to participate and see just how much she was loved by people they will never meet.
The show wont be the same, but if written right this will cause a lot of drama in Genoa City and it will produce some very realistic touching performances because in this case the actors have suffered a real loss. Despite the melodrama, Y+R has always been the most grounded serial. And the loss of Mrs. C will no doubt produce some real poignant drama. Get those tissues ready. God bless Jeanne Cooper .

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

ABC and of course, her current series Transparent, as well as producer Ryan Murphy with whom she first worked with as Marilyn Miglin in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, a role which earned Judith a Primetime Emmy nomination.  Light will next be seen in Murphy’s Netflix series, The Politician with Bette Midler and Ben Platt.

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
