Y&R's Jeanne Cooper Reveals Affair with On-Screen Son, Beau Kayzer in New Memoir!

The Young and the Restless sensational Jeanne Cooper is about to finally have her tell-all memoir, Not Young, Still Restless, released at the end of July.  And now the Daytime Emmy award winning legend, who has played the iconic Katherine Chancellor f0r 39 years on the number one soap,  is talking to promote it in what is perhaps the most highly-anticipated personal memoir of any daytime star!

Today in an item from the New York Post, Cooper talks about the startling revelation in her book that she indeed had an affair with her on-screen son, Brock, played by Beau Kayzer!  Cooper admitted the affair with Kayzer, who was 21 years younger, began after a devastating divorce from her cheating husband which blind-sided her like a sucker punch from a heavyweight.  In discussing how the affair began, Cooper related, “Well, he brought one of the kindest, most grounded, kinds of simplicity to life.  He was a great conversationalist, a poetic kind of person. And you know what? He delivers lines better than anyone I’ve ever known!  We had dinner one night, and then, it went further.  He made the first move. But the age difference was not for me. He kept saying he had no problem with it and that age meant nothing to him.”

As soap fans know, Kayzer still pops up now and then in Genoa City still playing Brock.  And when the NY Post asked if Cooper was still attracted to Beau, Jeanne giggled and said, “I still can’t say ‘hi’ to him without, well, you know.”  Cooper’s memoir, Not Young, Still Restless can now be pre-ordered on Amazon.com! 

So what do you think of the affair between Jeanne and Beau?  Shocked?  Not-shocked?  Let us know your thoughts?  One thing is for sure; Cooper will tell it like it is in her new book,  and in a life that has spanned 84 dramatic and fulfilling years, we can’t wait to read it!

It IS shocking, but you know what? As soap fans, we really shouldn’t be shocked by anything, LOL. The actors spend so much time together that those kinds of things have happened over the years…frequently.

Nothing Jeanne says is a shocker and if u have been fortunate enough to meet Beau in person like I have, you would know the attraction he has to women!

Until a younger woman comes along… I still give her a thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t think I would ever do that…I prefer a man to be older than me….Not younger…That would make me uncomfortable…By the way my husband is a few years older than me…That’s the way I like it………

84? Really? I wish Hollywood would realize the vitality of so many like her. The bias against old people seems to remain despite the presence and gifts of Betty White, Cloris Leachman, the just departed Ernest Borgnine… Treasures! I have enjoyed the many memooirs of late… Lucci, Zimmer… This one could be a real winner!

Wow is right!!! I have watched these two actors in their scenes over three decades. It never occurred to me that anything ever went on between them.

It has been a LONG time since something really surprised or interested me about Y&R. Given the unacceptably poor quality of the writing and the complete lack of creativity by the Y&R writing staff, maybe the show would be wiser to give its bland storytelling a rest for a week and just give Cooper five episodes to talk about this type of stuff!!!!

Not shocked but surprised,it helped get over the hurt with an adult so good for her.Just because some one is over 60 or even 70 does not mean they are ready for the rocking chair some people are old at 30 age is really only a number its how you live life that really counts.She is one of my favorite actresses.

It does not affect me in the slightest, as Jeanne Cooper was a great lady and a real human being, strong attractions happen in life, whether we started out seeking them or not, things happen. Jeanne played Katherine Chancellor for 39 years and will be greatly missed.
she was obviously very honest about the relationship which is to her credit, how many could do the same. She gave us many years of wonderful acting and great storylines. Y & R will never be the same, end of an era.

I have his album. I met Jeanne Cooper at Virginia Center Commons Mall grand opening, I had her to sing “I am gonna live until I die”, that little song that she would do on Y&R at times. What a DIVA!!!!!!!
Brock, you will be missed, what a wonderful actor.

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
