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.

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.

‘The Masked Singer’ Runner-up, Ex- AMC’s Jesse McCartney, Recalls Working With David Canary

If you caught the finale of The Masked Singer this week, you know that “The Turtle” was revealed to be none other than former All My Children star and recording artist, Jesse McCartney.

While McCartney came in as the runner-up, losing out to Kandi Burress, he spoke to Digital Journal about his latest single, “Friends’ and recalled his time working with the one and only David Canary (Ex-Stuart/Adam) on the now defunct ABC daytime drama series.

As a young JR Chandler from 1998-2001, that put him sharing on-screen time with Canary, who played his father.  Jesse remembers all of the lines of dialogue thrown at him at a young age was not fun.

When speaking of his time with Canary, McCartney shared: “He was one of the sweetest guys on the planet and he was such a kind soul. He played my father, Adam Chandler, and not only was he the star of the show but he played his own twin brother, Stuart. He had double the lines of any character on the show, and in my three years on the show, he never messed up a line even once. There was a time when David helped me when I was having a moment and I struggled with remembering my lines, so as a result, the soap world for me is very sentimental.”
