UPDATE: Corbin Bernsen's Heartbreaking Message On The Condition Of Y&R's Jeanne Cooper!

As we post this, it is late in the evening in Los Angeles, and there has been a recent post from Corbin Bernsen on his facebook page relating his thoughts and his update on the condition of his beloved mother, and our colleague and friend, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) of The Young and the Restless.  From reading Corbin’s heartbreaking message, it would indicate that Jeanne is struggling.  Here is what he related to Jeanne’s fans, friends, and loved ones everywhere:

Corbin Bernsen:  “Clearly from my messages you all must realize the situation, and that what I had hoped and prayed for – more time – may just end up being the brief moments I had with mom earlier this week. I asked God for time, I got it and tried to fill it with as much love and laughter as I possibly could. Sitting in a movie tonight, mildly distracted from it all, I got a call from my brother and he said we have to stop being unfair. She’s struggling too much. We have to let her go. I took it in, calmly, and walked back into the theater, finished the movie – Darn good Iron Man 3. I then went back to my hotel room, where I am now and broke down, conceding any fight I had left. I don’t want her in pain. I don’t want her in fear. I don’t want her in agony. And Jeanne Cooper, Katherine Chancellor, Wilma Jeanne is a fighter! She will kick ass as long as we let her but I know now it is only for us, not for her. I had to think back sitting in her bedroom several days ago… she pointed to several objects, paintings, telling us their “value.” Not much really but SHE WANTED US TO KNOW. I think she knew she was ready then, to let go. But she needed to test us to see our reaction – My reaction! Of course I immediately said, “not ready to go there mom,” demonstrating exactly what she suspected; that I wasn’t ready quite yet. So she hung on. Went another round. The boxer pleasing the team in their corner.

I said goodbye to her yesterday, and even then not fully meaning it or expecting that would be the last time I saw her. But now it will have to do as we enter this weekend letting her final voyage begin. And I’m good with it, honestly. Enough to be saying it here. You all have been a tremendous ear for me, to verbalize my struggles with all of this… even now with these very words… I am good. I am good. I don’t want her in pain. I don’t want her in fear or agony. Along with her tremendous success she’s had too much of all that in her lifetime. And she’s shared much of it with all of you, candidly. So I’m giving her this weekend, take the holiday, mom, make it yours, let it take you where it will. My final words to her last night were, “I’ll see you again.” And I will, either here or there. Prayers please for her safe and peaceful journey. I may take a break here for a bit and stay silent in prayer and mediation for the next few days… Then again, I am my mother’s son and staying quiet isn’t always an option. May the light of God grace shine upon us all this weekend. Make it about love, compassion, and honesty, and in doing so you will honor my mom and the examples she has always tried to set, to this very moment.”

There are no words to express how we feel, as I am sure all of you who come to On-Air On-Soaps and who had admired and loved Jeanne for 40 years on the number one soap,also feel.   Share your thoughts with us here, and we will keep you posted on the latest developments as the situation warrants.

I am so very sorry. This wonderful woman…she is the epitome of a kind soul. I always thought she was invincible. My mother passed away in 2005…and she loved “Mrs. Chancellor.”
My heart is breaking for her family and friends.
Prayers and love, being sent.
God bless you.

I have never watched Y&R and don’t really care to, but I did read this post, and I was just wondering something, cause maybe I missed something. Did she die? and if not, I was wondering how I could contact Corbin Bernsen personally, before any decision is made. No matter how bad or serious her condition is; or even if she’s at the brink of death, God can still heal her. I’ve never prayed for her before cause I never knew about it before, but THIS is nothing for God to heal; infact, to Him, this is no worse than… Read more »

find this post offensive and out of line, Jeanne Coopers family is fully capable of looing after her best interests, and some Religious Zealot trying to give false hope and who does not even know who this fine lady is, should just tend to their own business.

I’m not sure how to reply back to a reply, but this is for g beau. How in the world is this post offensive? Just because Jeanne’s family is praying for doesn’t mean that I can’t. And please enlighten me; I would love to know what Religious Zealots are. This post is about Jeanne Cooper and her illness, so I don’t understand why you would even post something like this. If it was to try to start an argument with me, it’s not gonna work. I don’t need to know this lady to pray for her and DO NOT imply… Read more »

I just read Corbin’s update when it was posted. It is truly heartbreaking. I watched my dad go through the same thing in January. I want the same thing for Ms. Cooper as I did for him. I want her to be free of pain and suffering. May God help Jeanne and her family find peace. Love you Jeanne Cooper.

I met your mother and for that I feel blessed. I hold the autographed picture and the kind words that she spoke to me about my own beloved grandmother who was struggling with a terminal illness. She wrote her a personal note and my grandmother treasured it until her passing. I am so sad to think of this world without Jeanne in it. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with her, but I know that she will be just fine in the arms of God. We are left to miss someone who truly made this world a better… Read more »

My heart breaks for the family. I have loved Jeanne Cooper for all the years she has been on Y&R and so many other TV shows. If it is indeed her time to go home, I pray for strength for the family. I lost my mom 6 years ago after a 32 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease that started when she was 46. It left her with Alzheimer’s. When my mom passed I thanked God for finally giving her peace. I knew she would be in a better place, that she would always be with me, and that I WILL… Read more »

How beautiful what Corbin wrote about his mother. There are no words to express what the family is feeling now but he sure did write what we all feel at that time. I remember standing beside my mother’s bed when she drew her last breath and knowing she went home to be with the Lord. God Bless all of your family Corbin at this time.

My Nanny was a housewife, and the way that she learned of the changing times was through the Soaps. Jeanne Cooper and her way of sharing herself with her fans helped my Nanny to except new ideas about fashion, and life choices. My heart breaks for her family, and for her many co-workers through the years who have been better for having known and worked with her. Also… Read more »

Back in the early 70’s I learned my own mother watched soaps. As I became an adult, I would visit my mother at lunchtime and we would sit and eat our lunch while watching As the World Turns. Each day I would leave giggling that my mother would watch these. One day I got an early lunch and went to my mother’s and she said to me “There is a show that fits you more, so we should watch that when you come” Giggling under my breath, I sat and watched the Young and the Restless and got HOOKED.

Simply devastated. There’s just no other way to put it. I’ve watched Jeanne Cooper on Y&R for more than 30 years. It is hard to fathom a Genoa City without her. Her absence will truly leave a void on this show. I wish her Godspeed and my heart goes out to her family and friends/colleagues who will miss her terribly.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
