Tomorrow, Wednesday June 5th, on a very special episode of MARIE on the Hallmark Channel ( check times in your area), Marie Osmond welcomes television and motion picture actor/director Corbin Bernsen, who has come on the show to honor his mother the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, Y&R) who passed away one month ago on May 8th.

In emotional moments throughout his segment, Bernsen relays that his mother loved Marie, and that this is the only talk show appearance he will make, and has made, to discuss Jeanne’s passing and her legacy.

What followed was an emotional Marie and Corbin as they watched a clip from a past episode of Marie, where The Young and the Restless Daytime Emmy winner, discusses what being a mother for the first time when she had Corbin meant to her! Grab the hankies and watch the clips after the jump!

Like I said the heart & soul is gone now with Bill Bell gone and now Jeanne! Rest in Peace my dear lady!

Have they said what she died from yet? Does anyone else find it a little odd that they haven’t released that particular piece of information?

Nikki, she passed away from complications from COPD. As you may or may not know, Jeanne was a smoker much earlier in her life but had quit.

She died from primarily advanced COPD.

I think it was complications from her having COPD…God bless her soul!

Yes, Corbin did on FB. She died from complications from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). She was a smoker back in the day. So sad… I wish everyone would quit smoking!

That will put a tear in your eye…………….RIP Jeanne!
Corbin was trying to keep it together!

I think it’s beautiful what Marie Osmond has been doing for the daytime community, especially that of the Y&R family with her Hallmark talk show and it’s so beautiful that she’s allowed Corbin come onto her show and be able to show such a vulnerability. Kudos!

It is not odd that we do not know why she died, she is gone and maybe the family doesn’t want to disclose what took her from this earth. Does it really matter why she died? I do not find it odd. Leave it go! RIP Jeanne!

Wow… both clips were so real and so emotional and heartfelt and just truly lovely! Corbin has been so sweet and eloquent with his posts throughout the last few months about Jeanne’s valiant fight. What a wonderful man and son! Jeanne will be missed for so long… Y&R just isn’t and won’t be the same without her. I have enjoyed still seeing her in the opening pictures… as she should be as her character is still alive on the show. It would be nice if they periodically showed her picture and had clips of her for at least the rest of the year and possibly beyond.

Thanks Michael!

As a mother, she put into words how I feel everyday. Perfectly. What a gift she was. Her legacy lives on.

Never watch Marie’s show but knowing Mr. Bernsen would be on talking about his marvelous, talented, bawdy, beautiful mother-The Duchess, I had to watch and it was so worthwhile to do so. For me the cause of this lovely lady’s leaving this earth is not any of my business. If the family wishes to share it so be it. But some times private information is just that private.

Awww Corbin, you can tell he and the rest of the family were very close. I love that he’s carrying on her legacy and am glad he will be on Y&R for Kay’s funeral. Since I’ve always known JC as Katherine Chancellor I think it’s going to take that funeral for it all to sink in for me.

I am still so emotional about losing our precious Jeanne Cooper, it has been like losing a dear friend, and in a very Special way she was. I would have Loved to have known her. She was so Exquisitely Special and incredibly Unique! Her son Corbin is so like his mother, he has been blessed with her gift of being able to touch the hearts of so many, in a pure and sincere way. I truly believe there was not a phony bone in Jeanne Cooper’s body. She was honest to a fault, compassionate, and I believe that she had the capacity to deeply love her fans and every person that came into her life.

I grew up watching Katherine Chancellor from the the first episodes of Y&R. It has always been a treat to enter her world, especially the scenes with her and Jill. You never knew what to expect. Jeanne Cooper will be dearly missed. As Victor put it, “We will never see the like(s) of her again.” She was indeed a unique character and beloved by her costars and fans alike. Rest in peace, dear lady. God’s blessings on your family at this time.

AEW’s Tony Khan Talks Hiring of Soap Vet Jennifer Pepperman, Sting’s Retirement Match at ‘Revolution’ and His Well-Deserved Send-Off

On Thursday during a media call, AEW President, Tony Khan fielded questions from the press leading up to Sunday’s AEW: Revolution pay-per-view (8 pm ET). Khan spoke on a myriad of topics including: the hiring of former One Life to Live executive producer, Jennifer Pepperman, and that Sunday will be the final match of the iconic Sting’s wrestling career.

Pepperman, who made news last week when she jumped from rival WWE as Senior Writer/Producer to AEW as its VP Content Development, brings with her experience as not only the former EP of Prospect Park’s One Life to Live, but as a Daytime Emmy-winning director for One Life, As the World Turns, as well as the digital series, After Forever.

Khan addressed the addition of Pepperman and what she brings to the table for AEW, “I love the world of soap operas and I think it’s fascinating the work she’s done. She’s an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and it’s a very different medium than soap opera, but obviously there are similarities. It was a unique hire when she joined pro wrestling and now she’s learned the wrestling business. There are a lot of wrestlers that have great experience working with her and so she was a popular hire. I think she adds a lot.  She would add a lot to any women’s story. She can add ideas, but she also adds ideas to men’s stories. I think any aspect of it wrestling or television that you’re working on, Jen, can be insightful, and she’s very additive. I wanted to bring Jen in to help just with AEW all across the board.”

“Jen is somebody who’s got a really great wrestling mind,” Khan expressed. “It’s really nice to have somebody like Jen who has experience in pro wrestling but also a lot of experience in television.  A lot of the people who had worked with Jen previously, had really great things to say about her, and on my visits with her I really liked her a lot. She was very excited about what she’d seen in AEW and she’s fitting in great. We’ve done a lot of shows now, and she’s been doing a great job catching up on it. She brings a lot of knowledge of pro wrestling and television from outside AEW.”

It’s going to be a sad day for Sting fans all around the world, when he wrestles in his final match this Sunday. Khan shared how important it was to him, to AEW, and to Sting, for him to go out with one final historic match. “I’m very excited about AEW Revolution, first and foremost being Sting’s last pro wrestling match and Sting’s retirement,” Tony shared. “I think he’s been a huge part of pro wrestling for my entire life. He’s been a hero since I was very young and when Sting came into AEW, I was so excited. This is exactly where I hoped we would get – setting up an incredible retirement match for Sting this Sunday at Revolution. He’s an incredible pro wrestler and an incredible man, and giving him the send off that he deserves – these past few years has been really important to me and now having a match for the weekend with high states, a personal rivalry, a great story, it’s going to be a tremendous show. It’s got certainly something that nobody will ever forget and that is Sting’s final wrestling match.”

The Greensboro Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina is where Sunday’s AEW Revolution will emanate from. Khan believes, “It’s the perfect place to pay tribute to Sting’s great career in the Greensboro Coliseum. It was where Sting really first arrived on the national map in 1988.”

Sting appearing on Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite was also special. Khan felt, “It was very fitting that he had his final appearance last night on TBS.”  Tony added, “Sting coming down from the rafters one last time I thought was a perfect way to cap off the final ‘Dynamite’ before ‘Revolution” and the final ‘Dynamite’ of Sting’s career. After 37 years on TBS .. and being so identifiable with it, it’s pretty special and pretty rare, and it’s befitting the great career and the great person that we have in Sting.”

While some feel Sting may be back in some capacity with AEW behind the scenes, Khan says anything is on the table. “When Sting came back in 2020, he did not need the money. Sting is very, very well off and has earned a lot of money in his career and is taking care of it very well,” Tony related. “He’s really a great person and he’s made great investments and he does this because he loves it. He loves the fans and he wanted to have a great run in wrestling and for these past three years, that’s exactly what we’ve done.  So for me, I would love to have Sting back in AEW anytime. I know he said he would like to come back. We won’t hold him or force him to come back at any point. Now is a great time for Sting to take time for himself and his family after this and whatever the result is Sunday, I think Sting can take pride that he’s had the most incredible final run.”

So, what did you think about the words Tony Khan expressed on the hiring of Jennifer Pepperman who brings both her soap opera and wrestling experience to AEW? We have always said that pro wrestling is a ‘soap opera in the ring’ and apparently Khan knows there is link to the two as well.  And, are you ready for Sting’s final match in his legendary career?

Kathie Lee Gifford Reacts to ‘The Bachelor’ Joey Graziadei Having ‘No Idea’ Who She Is On ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’

Let’s set the stage! Kathie Lee Gifford was previously mentioned by Today Show’s Hoda Kotb and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos as someone who would make a great lead for the upcoming dating-reality series competition, The Golden Bachelorette.

Then came the Wednesday February 28th episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, when the current ‘Bachelor’ leading man, Joey Graziadei was the guest.

During his interview, Kelly and Mark asked Graziadei what his thoughts were on Gifford becoming the first-ever ‘Golden Bachelorette’.

Graziadei’s response was: “I will be honest… I have no idea who Kathie Lee Gifford is.” That prompted some boos and some laughs from the in-studio audience. Joey added, ‘I’m only 28! I’m sorry!”

In a response to a post on X featuring the faux-pas, Gifford reacted by saying: “I don’t expect him to know me. I’ve got shoes that are older than this kid is!”

Gifford received the Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. She has also been in the chair occupied by Ripa on ‘Live’. From 1985 to 2000, Kathie Lee and Regis Philbin were the co-hosts of  the morning talk show. She then went on to co-host the fourth hour of Today in 2008 and continued till 2019.

When E! News asked Kotb about Gifford potentially getting the nod as the “Golden Bachelorette”, she shared, “By the way, she would be a 10 plus, and she’d get her choice of all the men, and you know how she is all flirty and cute.”

So, what do you think about Joey not knowing who Kathie Lee is? Could it possibly be that ABC would cast Gifford as the ‘Golden Bachelorette’? Comment below.
