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 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.

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.

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 .

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

So, which lesbian actress should play CW’s LGBT super hero? Share your suggestions and thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Promo: Obrecht Decides It’s Time To End Peter’s Life, But Her Plans Go Up in Flames!

This week on General Hospital, looks like Peter (Wes Ramsey) may finally be freed from being kidnapped by Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Nina (Michelle Stafford), or will he?

In the just released promo from ABC,  Obrecht needs to be stopped, depending on who you are rooting for, that is.  We see her smash Franco (Roger Howarth) in the head from behind on the docks to keep him from uncovering what she has been up to.  Then, it looks as if Obrecht is holding what looks to be a molotov cocktail! “You have come to the end of the road,” she wildly tells Peter.

Nina attempts to stop her, but it’s too late,  Next thing you know the cabin is engulfed in flames? Who will get out of there alive?

Watch the promo below and then let us know, what you hope happens via the comment section below.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
