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!!!

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.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
