The Young and the Restless, Lee Phillip Bell, issued her own remembrances on the passing of the legendary Jeanne Cooper, who passed away this past Wednesday and broken so many hearts of fans and her colleagues who have loved seeing her on-screen for 40 years as Katherine Chancellor, the grand dame of Genoa City.

From Lee Phillip Bell:   “JEANNE COOPER: respected colleague, industry icon, woman of passion and grandeur; most important, beloved friend. She was a shining beacon. Her love was unexpendable, and was given freely to all, from fans to great celebrities. She was not jaded by success, nor impressed by wealth and fame. Her crowning glory was her family: her children Corbin, Collin and Caren and her grandchildren, whom she adored, and all of whom adored her in return. Her presence resonated in the lives of all those around her. Through her personal and professional journey, she saved hundreds, possibly thousands, from the depths of alcoholism. She embodied compassion and forgiveness. No daytime icon has ever been more influential in the lives of millions. She will be terribly missed, but her light will shine on forever. May angels guide you on your journey, dear Jeanne. I will love you forever. “

A touching and loving tribute. There will never be another Jeanne Cooper. I sincerely hope YR does not recast the role of Katherine Chancellor. It would be disrespectful to both Ms. Cooper and her fans in my opinion.

She was a beutiful lady inside and out. She was loved by all. She touched alot of lives. I watched her on Y&R for many years. I hav been deeply moved by her wonderful Son, Corbin’s updates of hs Mother’s condition. I lived what he and his family are going through, I remember when I to, would sit by my Parents bed day after day, hour after hour, praying they would get better, not wanting to let them go, but after you come to the realization, that they won’t, you reaize, you can’t be selfish, you need to say goodbye, and let them go. That is why I was so touched, by his statements. He showed his heart to all of us and I thank him for doing so. Anyway, Jeanne will never be forgotten. She played a tough lady on the show, but had so much heart. I loved her scenes with Jill. Her love for her family. Those goodbye scenes with Tucker, so moving. No one could ever replace her. Wil miss her greatly. A wonderful iconic actress.

Melissa posted a pic of her with growing baby bump sharing: “Oh yeah, I’m hella pregnant. To be honest, I haven’t felt like posting about it because this pregnancy has been way harder and… I don’t feel that cute? But yesterday I got a really intense massage, an awesome chiropractic adjustment, and my hair feels thicker… so I feel a little bit cute today.”  To which her husband, David commented back to her Instagram post with a humorous: “Wait …. WHAT?!”

The Fumeros are already the proud parents of their 3-year-old son, Enzo who often appears on the couple’s individual Instagram account posts.

Since OLTL, Melissa has gone on to star in the hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine opposite Andy Samberg, while David also guest-starred on the series.  Meanwhile, David has also been recently seen in the series Power.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
