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.

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
