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.

And didn’t Mrs. Brady (Florence Henderson) have an affair of sorts with the actor who played her oldest stepson Greg in the ealry 1970s? Jeanne, you do whatever the hell you want with a consenting adult. Oooooooooooh, barraCOUGAR! LOL

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.

Luv ya

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.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
