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.”

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.

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.

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.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Oprah Winfrey Helps Ellen DeGeneres Process Ending Her Talk Show & Tells Her She is ‘Proud’ of Her for Following Her Instincts

Oprah Winfrey was the once reigning queen of the daytime talk show, and that mantled was then passed on to Ellen DeGeneres, although their shows were at times, very different.

With the announcement by DeGeneres that she is ending her talk show after its 19th season which will run from fall 2021-into spring 2022, who else should be her first guest but the mighty Oprah who knows a thing or two about ending an enduring talk show.   Winfrey appeared virtually and praised Ellen for knowing it was time to call it quits and reflected on the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2011.

Oprah expressed: “It’s almost 10 years ago …will be next week.  10 years ago when I was in this exact position. I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say, and announcing to the world that it was your instinct, and that you thought long and hard about it … because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as the show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly. And that coming to the realization that, ‘Now it is time,’ is a process.”

Ellen shared that her decision was about wanting to have, and do, and fulfill other creative outlets for herself.  When Oprah asked Ellen how she was feeling since she made the announcement and uttered the words, ‘the show is ending after its 19th season.’ Ellen responded:  “I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good.  I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping.”   Winfrey then said, “I’m proud of you for trusting your instinct because I know that there has to be — as there was in the case for me — a lot of people around you that want to keep that train moving, who want to keep going.”

Winfrey said it was important that Ellen gave her staffers a one-year heads up, since so many of the people who work on the show built their financial and emotional and professional lives around it – and by giving everyone a year, it helps those that have worked on the show time to process and to figure out their next chapter, as well.

You can watch the entire conversation below.

Then let us know, do you think Oprah offered up great words of wisdom to Ellen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
