Remembering Katherine Chancellor: Exclusive Clip

Friday, August 30, 2013 10:47 AM EDT
On Tuesday, September 3 and Wednesday, September 4, the citizens of Genoa City will gather at the park at Lake Delaney on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as they celebrate the life of Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), who Jill Abbott Fenmore (Jess Walton) says in the exclusive clip below, "wanted a party instead of a funeral."
“The Young and the Restless” brought the soap opera community to tears this past May with an emotional and very well planned memorial for the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away due to an illness that same month. And now the sudser is pulling out all of the stops yet again to honor the character Cooper played for 40 years. The emotional storyline has already begun playing out with several of Genoa City’s residents receiving letters from the grand dame, and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) says this is just the start of a powerful story arc that will change the small Wisconsin town in more ways than one.

Thursday, August 29, 2013 4:08 PM EDT
“All My Children’s” Finn Wittrock (ex-Damon Miller) is no stranger to working with powerful, older women; his onscreen affair with Jamie Luner’s Liza Colby was a controversial cougar storyline that had soap fans’ tongues wagging for months during the soaps ABC run. So working with Angelia Jolie shouldn’t be a problem for the Massachusetts native, who’s been cast in “Unbroken,” a World War II film being directed by Brad Pitt’s super sultry wife.
Now that snickers over the disastrous Miley Cyrus MTV VMA performance have died down, giggles and laughs of another sort are flying through the entertainment-sphere over the rumor that “Teen Mom” alum Farrah Abraham has been cast on “Days of our Lives” as a hooker! But is it true that the reality star turned porn star is now a soap opera star?
