Hello – This is the way it should be. So happy this is going to happen. Thank you JoAnn

thanks for the oppturnity to say good bye to jeanne cooper

This is the least they can do, as she was Y & R. There is no way possible, the show will ever ever be the same.

Love that they are doing a tribute Michael…Thanks for the update

it wont be the same without her! she was a very good actress! gonna miss seeing her. she will be hard to replace! ive watched the show for 40 years. god bless you all!

Jeanne is a legend! Her kinda talent is becoming a rareity in our youth obssessed entertaiment industry especially on soaps! ill definately not miss the tribute! She was a longtime favorite and iv watched her before she was on y&r!

thank you michael……………..

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.

Love this and Love Y&R!!! Well Done!!!

I will miss Katherine ( Jeanne Cooper ) She was a gutsy actress on the show and told it the way it was, I think she made the show and am very sorry about her passing. I have watched this story since it started, it will be sad watching it without her. I look forward the the tribute on May 28 with my box of kleenex, So sorry for the families loss, I know what it is like to lose a mother, laugh at all the good memories and god bless her. R.I.P. Queen Katherine.

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.

So happy to hear it!!! She played an inconic soap genre character and deserves to be honored!!! She will be missed!

Great idea! We all will miss the Duchess.

Great idea! We will all miss the Duchess!

I’ll be watching with a full box of Kleenex – I’ll miss her so MUCH! – this soap will never ever be the same 🙁

I think this is wonderful and she is very worthy and deserving of all accolades bestowed upon her. I will be watching.

Love Jeanne Cooper…..Love it!!! I can’t wait to see it!!!!

À Day to laugh, a day to mourn, one of many to come….

It’ll be a very sad tribute!

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.

Wonderful Idea! Thank You! There is one Ms “C”

I guess Jill Farren Phelps isn’t so bad after all.

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.

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.

Happy to hear her viewers and fans can be a part of her Celebration of Life. I feel like I lost a family member. RIP Mrs. C

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 .

W. Jeanne Cooper AKA MRS. C…you will be missed enormously…but I know that GOD will have a position for you in HEAVEN..ST. PETER better watch out…you may be sitting behind his desk and telling him who to let through the GOLDEN GATES OF HEAVEN!!!! You can be MY GUARDIAN ANGEL anytime. If you meet Sara Elizabeth Jackson up there…that is my GRAMUS and I started watching Y&R because of her. Onward and Upward to whatever GOD’S next task is for you.


I have watch this show since the first day it started. It will never be the same now . She was the show, She loved each of you and all her fans, and all her fans loved her too. How could you not?

RI P Sweet lady and god bless your family for allowing us to share her with us. You will be so missed by all of us.

I found that the young and the restless cast did an excellent job at giving the tribute to Jeanne Cooper – she will be greatly missed – she added spice and alot of elegance and class to the show –

I have watched the show since the early 80’s


B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang Weighs-In On Hope’s New Attitude: “Brooke is Starting to be Like, ‘Uh-oh! She’s Taking After Me!’ ”

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) has been not pleased with her daughter Hope’s (Annika Noelle) choice in bedfellows! After all, Brooke and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) have a long history of disdain for each other (although there was that time they took psychedelic berries together and pranced around with not much clothes on).

Hope had divorced Liam (Scott Clifton) and has been getting much closer to Thomas, feeling he is the only man who ‘gets her’ and ‘sees her’ for who she really is.  On recent episodes of B&B, Hope has no problem giving into her desires for Thomas, now that she is no longer Hope Spencer.

Soap Opera Digest spoke with series iconic star, Katherine Kelly Lang to get her take on what she thinks of Hope’s attitude adjustment and recent behavior.

Lang expressed: “She seems to have changed a bit. She’s not the sweet little Hope that she once was and Brooke is starting to be like, ‘Uh-oh! She’s taking after me!’’

Brooke is not happy that Thomas has apparently won over Hope, when she is wary of the guy. Katherine added, “Thomas was stalking her (Hope) and he did all that crazy stuff with the baby. He just hasn’t been good for her, you know, especially when he was totally obsessed with her. So, Brooke doesn’t believe that that’s completely gone, that there’s still got to be some of that in Thomas somewhere and she’s worried about her daughter. So, of course, she would kind of say, ‘This is not good. This is just not a good situation. With all the men in the sea, why, why do you (pick Thomas)?”

However, many might see that as the pot calling the kettle black given how Brooke has often given into her desires with the men in her life and made some pretty bad choices herself!

So, is Hope turning into a ‘mini-Brooke’? Should Brooke continue to warn Hope of Thomas’ past, or should she just mind her own business at this point? Share your comments via the comment section.
