    "RIP Jeanne Cooper (1911-2013) Dead," read an inappropriate tweet by tweeter @BravoMaxine, which was tweeted to twitter accounts @ebraeden @melodythomassco @victoriarowell. The tweet received a response from Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Winters, "The Young and the Restless") who said, "A special lady & great Native American actress." Thankfully, we can report that Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, "The Young and the Restless"), who was actually born in 1928, is very much alive as stated by Eric Braeden (Victor Newman, "Y&R"), "Contrary to some statement, Jeanne Cooper is doing better and sitting with her daughter Caren by her bedside!!"

So, while the show’s ratings were rising, it was quite a shock to learn it had been canceled in 2011. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous with the series coming back, but this time without executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati. READ MORE
