In one of the more touching of all the statements issued today by cast mates and professional acquaintances, and long time friends and fans of Jeanne Cooper,  it was The Young and the Restless, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) who put it all in perfect perspective with words that make you understand just who Jeanne Cooper was as a person,a  friend,  and a cast mate.

Doug Davidson: “She was one of a kind and she held my hand for 35 years. She helped me be a better actor, husband, parent, and friend. My life was so enriched  having known her. She was such a loving, kind soul. With Jeanne, there was no judgment, no rules. She loved you for you. She always had time for you and was so gracious with her love. For me, she was a personal giant, an sublime example of how to behave on planet Earth. I will miss her more than I can describe. I will say with certainty, that Heaven just got a hell of a lot more interesting! ….God’s speed, my dear friend. I love you.”

Doug your words where so profound and beautiful! I was lucky enough to get to meet Jeanne Cooper at The Day Time Emmy Awards in Las Vegas a few years ago and thought she was such a wonderful human being. I would of loved to been able to talk with her longer…. As crazy as this sounds, I’ve been watching Y & R since 1979 and feel I know all the long time actors. Even tho I do not, Y & R has been a part of my life for so long now, I feel I’ve lost my Great Aunt… Read more »

A lovely love letter from Doug to Jeanne….she was so much more than a co worker to him & many others…a mentor, an advisor, a true friend, a member of a ‘special” family….her loss will be felt by everyone….she was a true legend as an actress, but more than that a great lady as a human being….Rest in peace Jeanne Cooper….you were one of a kind….♥~

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
