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.

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.

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.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Star Colton Underwood Shares More Details on His Decision to Come Out Including Being Blackmailed

Last month, Colton Underwood came out publicly in a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

The former lead of ‘The Bachelor’, Underwood’s announcement was met with some harsh criticism since he was already prepping a reality show about it for Netflix.

However, in a new feature with Variety, Colton shares what finally led him to reveal his truth: “I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed.”

In his conversation, Underwood shared that while in LA he visited a spa known for a gay clientele.  Shortly thereafter, he received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have taken nude photos of him at the venue. Underwood never saw the alleged photos and explains he was at the spa “just to look,” saying he “should have never been there.”

The unidentified blackmailer threatened to “out” him in the press, and in a panic, Underwood forwarded the email to his publicist, which forced him to finally have an honest conversation about his sexual orientation, and a reckoning, of sorts.

Adding to all of this, Underwood’s relationship with his ex Cassie Randolph has also been under fire, where in court documents she filed a restraining order, alleging that he stalked her and placed a tracking device on her car.

Due to a joint agreement with Randolph, Underwood is limited in what he can say to the press. But in the interview with Variety, he shared he wants to clear the air, because he’s seen the word “abuse” attached to previous reports on their relationship situation.  Colton expressed, “I did not physically touch or physically abuse Cassie in any way, shape or form.”

Randolph broke up with Underwood he shares, and that he was in “such a dark place” because he knew that this would be his last straight relationship and the reality hit him hard.  Underwood clarified: “If there was anything I could do to take more ownership, I would. But also, out of respect to her, I don’t want to get into the details. I want this interview to be the last time I address her, because it’s not fair for her to have her name in articles every time I talk. I’m sorry, and I want her to know that I hope she has the best, most beautiful life.”

As far as if Colton feels ABC should discuss having a gay season of The Bachelor, or if he would come back to appear as its lead, he would only say: “I think they should discuss it.  It should be a conversation. I don’t like speaking in definitives, but I’m not in a position to be in a show like that. I’m at a crossroads in my life right now.”

Watch a portion of the interview below with Colton and Variety below.  Then share your thoughts on how Underwood decided to come out via the comment section and his plans for the near-future.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
