UPDATE: Y&R's Jeanne Cooper "Recovering and Making Great Progess!"



There was some very good news this weekend! The Young and the Restless Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) is reportedly on the mend recovering and making great progress since being hospitalized and landing in the ICU!

Jeanne’s son actor/director Corbin Bernsen posted on Facebook Sunday that the legendary daytime star who has played grande dame of Genoa City for 40 years, was even well enough to let him take her picture and post it, according to CBS 2 Local news in Los Angeles!

She gave a thumbs up in the photo and Bernsen said, “then, without hesitation, she flipped me the bird.”  That, he joked, was how he knows his mother is on the mend and returning to her true irascible and loveable self. “It’s a great sign,” he wrote.

Bernsen added that Cooper is “overwhelmed by your the fans abundance of thoughts and prayers for her.”  He also added that his mother has “very real hurdles for a long range recovery and for returning to a life she knew” but his mother was (his caps) “ABUNDANTLY, ABSOLUTELY, ADAMANTLY CLEAR she wants to go back to work and ‘it ain’t over until Katherine Chancellor sings!’”

We wouldn’t expect anything else from the one and only Jeanne Cooper! Please share your thoughts here for Jeanne as she rally’s back and soon can hopefully leave the hospital!  And from On-Air On-Soaps, a personal note, to thank all the wonderful Y&R and Jeanne fans for coming here over the last week or so and sending prayers Jeanne’s way!

To her fans, Bernsen said, “Enjoy the photo and her stuffed dog she calls Cracker Jack — after her real dog waiting patiently at home for her.”

It’s so good to hear that she’s on the mend! All good thoughts and prayers for her speedy, complete recovery!

Great news!!! Glad she is on the mend and making jokes!!! My thoughts and prayers are with her daily and hope she is able to get bac to her life again ASAP!

Michael-Have the powers that be at TY&TR made any decisions on how to deal with Jeanne’s absence?

David they will probably write her in a coma with this brain tumor. Let’s face it the show is all about Steve Burton/Dylan now. FV & RC I wish I could pay you to take this guy back to GH.

It always feels good to hear good news!

Hahaha she flipped the bird! I love Jeanne Cooper

thank GOD for answering our prayers…………………♥

So glad to hear that Mrs. C’s real life spirit is as feisty as that of her character. All the best from a long time fan.

Very good news in the soap world. We just had a fake funeral for Katherine not so long ago. you bet it is not over until Katherine Chancellor sings. Let’s hope there is a very strong storyline for Mrs. C upon her return!

Her memoir is fun interesting quick read. Enjoy it! I sure did.

Thank god she is recovering fast. I am glad that Jeanne Cooper is making a remarkable recovery.

Wonderful news about a wonderful lady! Look forward to hearing she has returned to work, since she loves it so much. The best vibes, positive thoughts and prayers are being sent her way and for all who surround her in care.

Glad to hear she is on the mend, will continue to pray for her as she continues her journey to a full recovery. I hope she does not rush things– and I hope Y&R will wait for her to return and not do anything drastic to the character Katherine in her absence. I have a feeling if they did, Jeanne’s fans will give them hell for her.

So glad Jeanne is on the mend.

Speaking with The Talk co-hosts comprised of Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, snd Akbar Gbajabiamila, B&B’s Joshua Hoffman opened up about joining the cast as RJ Forrester and being ‘green’ to the history of the long-running CBS daytime drama.  Joshua admitted: “I didn’t know much. I had to do a lot of research. I talked a lot with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge). I just kind of studied his mannerisms. I’m like, ‘OK, that’s my Dad, this is how he walks.'”

Matthew Atkinson shared  Thomas’ feelings for Hope (Annika Noelle): “This character Thomas has been kind of crazy in love with this girl for a long time, and he’s actually committed to her. He’s like steadfast in love, going to be there for you no matter what, and I think finally Hope is coming around.”

Scott Clifton shared his take on if is Liam going after his Finn’s wife and his ex, Steffy:  “Listen, this character’s been flawed, he’s been misguided.  He’s a villain now, and I’m having the time of my life.”

Tanner Novlan expressed, when speaking of Liam coming between Finn and Steffy’s marriage, “We don’t know. There’s lots in store for sure. You’re going to have to stay tuned. Lawrence Saint-Victor revealed what’s it like to be in the middle of the Forrester fashion dynasty between Ridge and Eric (John McCook), “It’s weird to be in the middle between your friend and his father, but I think Carter is on the side of money.”

The trio is set to give some inside intel to Tamron on their highly-anticipating holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas, set to premiere on Lifetime on Saturday, December 2nd (8pm ET/7Pm CT) and streams next day.

As previously reported, Ladies of the 80’s: A Divas Christmas also stars Linda Gray (Dallas) and Loni Anderson (WKRP in Cincinnati) and in story, five glamorous ‘80s soap opera stars reunite to share the spotlight to shoot the final Christmas episode of their long-running soap opera.

The producer, Alex (Travis Burns) and director Nell (Taylor Ann Thompson), old college friends, do their best to keep things on the rails but as the ladies come together, old rivalries resurface that threaten to tear the whole production apart. With the show nearly canceled before it even begins due to the ladies’ famous diva behavior, they reluctantly agree to set aside their differences and past secrets to “act” as if they all still love each other.  When old sparks reignite between Alex and Nell, the ladies become eager to play cupid and conspire to bring the couple together. Along the way, the divas also discover that the love between them all is still very strong too.

Ladies of the ‘80s: A Divas Christmas also stars Christopher Atkins, Patrika Darbo (ex-DAYS, B&B, The Bay), Alec Mapa, and Mills’s daughter, Chloe Mills. In addition, the holiday film features a theme song performed by none other than ’80s pop star Tiffany.
