We hope you will have your hankies ready as we, and the citizens of Genoa City, say goodbye to one of the most beloved and treasured characters in soap opera history, Katherine Chancellor played by the late Jeanne Cooper.

To honor Katherine, The Young and the Restless will be airing a two-part memorial episode beginning right after Labor Day on Tuesday September 3rd and Wednesday September 4th.

In this newly released CBS Daytime promo for the two-day event, you see Corbin Bernsen as Father Todd (Jeanne Cooper’s real life son) presiding over the ceremony stating, “It’s time to celebrate all that we loved about the great Katherine Chancellor.”

But then comes the cliffhanger of an ending to the promo with a reaction shot of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Jess Walton (Jill) as the voice over announce states, “And … one of her wishes is about to come true!”  What could that wish of Katherine’s be?

Watch the preview below, and let us know what you think could be the “wish come true”? And, if you are going to armed and ready with the hankies to say goodbye to the one and only Mrs. C?  Plus, make sure to check out our new interview with Melody Thomas Scott as she previews the upcoming memorial episodes and more!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion Sal— it is just a shame when others disagree with said opinion they get personal and attack the person instead of giving sound arguments to dispute the opinion they disagree with. So don’t stop posting just be prepared to get some flack when you say something the majority of fans would disagree with. Personally I don’t feel the show is trying to take advantage of Jeanne’s death— the fans would be in an uproar if they didn’t do something to honor the legacy of both the character and the actress who played her for… Read more »

You said it best. Did not feel this way until it was explained sorry I’m old and needed a brick thrown at me. The advertising of it and what seemed like a while made me feel uneasy but you made me see the light point taken and understood…………thanks so much Mary:>)

Actually, in an interview that I saw with Jill Farren Phelps, they are honoring Jeanne’s last wishes. It was also said that Jeanne would be upset with the writers if they didn’t make a storyline surrounding her death. They are doing this to keep her legacy alive so although not present she will be apart of all story lines. It[‘s different when planning a funeral for one who has really died then someone who has been killed off. It needs to be done with dignity and respect for the woman who played on that show for 40 years. The Young… Read more »

I think it’s lovely that they’re writing it in to give everyone some closure for the character. She was such an integral part of the show, she deserves nothing less.

And if the family wasn’t on board with this, Corbin Bernsen wouldn’t have been there.

Katherine knew who Nikki’s son is,
and he is in Port Charles, and known to all as…??

Most likely very special person to Katherine …

LOL. irregardless….. I love when Fans real. i have to say… Dylan – still. takes some getting used to…. who would have thought he could “talk” so much? and have to be “openly” loving romantic father…. and married. it’s a little off putting some times… do I still think he belongs on GH w/Sam and daniel edward? yes… and if SB should choose to revive his career and GH wants him back? wow… talk about cementing his belonging in genoa city of he’s Nikki’s son. another male for Nikki to kowtow to…. oohhh! it pains me… I’ll love that day… Read more »

New viewer here. Only five or is years. Can someone share the billet points of Nikki’s mysterious long lost son please?

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Actually I am a long time viewer and I would love the answer to that one myself. As far as I know this long lost son is a new invention– not something that was a part of her history before now. Rumor has it, Dylan will be the baby she gave away, but when and who is the bio-daddy is yet to be reveal. I was hoping since Paul was her first love that maybe it was his, but since she went to him for help- in tracking the son down that would be doubtful.

Mark it is being made up like a lot of soaps do the long lost child you never heard about. Plus in this case JFP needs to cement bringing SB over and making him the star I am and still annoyed but I just do not watch his scenes the FF button works fine.

Mark Y

So then where is this news/rumor coming from? Using a soap’s history well is certainly welcome but I hope it isn’t forced. On ATWT, Lisa had a grown son come to Oakdale and he was conceived while the character of Lisa was off the show if I remember correctly. Was Nikki written out for any length of time long, long ago?

It’s going to be a long time before anyone truly gets used to Jeanne/Katherine being gone.
It’s strange to see scenes in the Chancellor mansion without her (although there have been many over the years without Katherine in them).
It’s just different. 🙁

Miss her,miss her,miss her…..

I bet one of her last wishes will be a plaque or statue of her so that any Genoa City resident can always visit and talk to her.

I saw the preview of the next weeks show, and when it showed Katherine’s last wish it only showed the faces of Jill and Nikki’s and the shocking look on their faces it looks like maybe someone showed up. Jill especially it was the same look she had when Phillip Chancellor III showed up. I could be wrong, but judging by Jill’s face maybe Phillip Chancellor the 2nd is alive. All these years Katherine has wished for Phillip to not be dead right. Don’t start a rumor that it is him because I am only quessing by the look on… Read more »

I have just seen part two of this show– and you are right it is not a statue- and if it looks they just seen a ghost– well there is a reason for that.

The powers that be already let it slip there is going to be a park set that will be in honor of Katherine– so obviously Jill and Nikki are reacting to some kind of statue or plaque with Katherine’s image on it being unveiled, to be a monument in said park.

I think it looks great!!! I will be watching! I am glad they are doing so much and if some secrets come out of it the better… Jeanne would have loved it!!! Corbin would not be doing this if he didn’t think it was being done well!!!

The passing of Jeanne Copper is a major turning point in THE Y&R, hence it should be ntoed grandly as befitting the character. And, of course, the passing of Katherine Chancellor should be a source of plot upsets, twists, turns, and geneses. I hope Katherine (and Miss Cooper) are remembered and referenced for a long time to come… but not compromised!

The wish that is about to come true is probably Chancellor Park.

Saw the first episode today here in Parry Sound, ON, Canada and there is something covered on the wall behind the podium so I do believe that it will be a plaque honoring Katherine. Cried so much. Beautifully done and can not wait to see the second part.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
