I will miss seeing her on the show it’s really sad what has happen and my thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Y&R staff. I have been blessed to have started my own photo album of the Y&R that I have had since I was a teen. It won’t be the same with out her on the show. Much love from Brighton Tennessee

It was beautifully simple and wonderfully touching. Kudos to whomever found vintage footage of Jeanne with newly the arrived Victor Newman and her first encounter with Lauren Fenmore! (My only complaint is John McCook inferring he was already in place when Jeanne arrived; he actually joined the show 3+ years after Jeanne.) Great job!

My only disappointment was that is was not longer- there were obviously some stories being told about her that were cut off that I would have love to heard the whole thing. It would be great if they compile a DVD on all the stories shot that day in their entirety; didn’t mind the edited version, just wanted more. Love the early shots of her, she was gorgeous in her youth, stunning in womanhood, and simply beautiful in her golden years. Rest in peace — we will missed your presence, but your spirit will always be with us.

So well done… a beautiful tribute to such a special lady!!! I loved and wished it could have been 2 hours!!! How fabulous to see her castmasts all thinking they had their own unique and special relationship with Jeanne!!! I wish I had been lucky enough to meet her. She sounds like she really loved and appreciated her fans and that is so lovely. They really had a great mix of her speaking, clips, cast members speaking and finally her kids… very touching and truly a celebration and a tribute to the star of Y&R!!! Jeanne you will be missed… but we have so many memories!!! Thank you Jeanne for all the years of you being you or Katherine or whomever you played… we loved every minute!!!

What an incredible tribute !!
I watched from Canada on time shift 3x….and cried throughout every time.
It was wonderful to see Jeanne Cooper in flashback scenes.
I started watching Y&R in summer of 1976 as a 13 year old.
I always thought Jeanne Cooper epitomized absolute class and grit.
Katherine Chancellor’s relationship with Jill Abbott was ‘the relationship’.
A real Super Couple.
It was so fitting that her last scenes were with Jill – and the last scene in the tribute was given to Jess Walton.
I hope Katherine Chancellor’s presence will be felt in storyline for years to come.
Rest in peace Jeanne Cooper….well done,well done !!

Heart-warming/Heart-breaking. Was not ready to lose this wonderful woman who has been in my life since I was 14 years old. This old world is changing & I am not sure how much I like it.

Need to clarify, 13 years old-1973 Y&R debuted & I was 13 so she was a part of my life since then. FORTY YEARS!

Was this not just a beautiful day for this magnificent woman…I’ve watched 3 times now, enjoying all the tweets coming into CBS, it was nothing like daytime has ever seen past or future, a true legend of daytime genre….Great day for daytime!

With all that was said about Stephen Nichols head being cropped from the cast photo, it was very nice to see him included in the tribute. I was also glad to see Tricia Cast included, considering she lives out of state. She was probably in town for the funeral and stayed with Lauralee Bell, but the fact that she was there was really nice.

It seems to me that they really thought about who shared scenes with Jeanne. I thought it was a very lovely tribute to an amazing woman.

I think it was touching and beautiful, classy and full of warmth just like her. I have to congratulate TPTB at Y&R, Sony and CBS for getting it and doing it right. Jeanne Cooper deserved this tribute. So often the stars of daytime who pass away get little more than a nod. Taking an entire show and allowing family and cast members to break that fourth wall and share was outstanding! Thank you to all who participated. Those of us on this side of the camera share in your loss.

What can a person say about Jeanne Cooper and the loss of her to this show? It’s hard to sum up in words what it will mean. Here is a woman whom I’ve spent every day of my adult life with: crying, laughing, celebrating…… day in, and day out. I’m 42 and will forever miss seeing that brilliant woman light up my screen…. giving everything she had. God Bless you, Jeanne…… and thank you.

Thank you for a a moving tribute, Y&R; especially at the end, with her omni-present tea cup and jewels; perfection…. just like Jeanne.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
