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!

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.

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!

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.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
