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.

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
