After being released from the hospital this past weekend, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, "The Young and the Restless") was sadly readmitted on Wednesday. With posts on Facebook, Cooper's son, Corbin Bernsen, has been keeping friends and fans all around the world up-to-date on his mom's current condition and things aren't looking good. The actor said in one of his recent postings, "Please know that I'm not saying my mother's life has ended, it hasn't, but no matter how you slice it, she is in the final stages, whether it lasts an hour, day, month or years. I had to say 'goodbye' to her tonight 'just in case' as I'm traveling tomorrow to Vancouver for 'Psych.'"

There’s no doubt that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) is honored to have been nominated for Outstanding Leading Actor for this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, but believe it or not, he’ll actually be rather upset if he takes home the coveted award come ceremony night!
On Wednesday, May 1, Daniel Goddard announced that he'll be appearing in an upcoming episode of CBS' "The Price is Right."

"Another World" and "Sunset Beach" were canceled in 1999, "Port Charles" in 2003, and "Passions" in 2007 (NBC version) and again in 2008 (DirecTV version). In 2009, "Guiding Light" got turned off and in 2010 "As The World Turns" just stopped. 2011 then brought the double cancellations of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." As a result of 8 soap operas being cancelled within a 12 year span, one would have expected 2012 to end with another soap saying goodbye. Thankfully, the year came and went without a single soap cancellation for the first time in five years. Now with the 2013 resurrection of "AMC" and "OLTL," soaps are no longer "dying" and the genre is finally thriving once more. But, if you're like us, you never forget your soap opera history. Enter "Soap Life," a documentary that follows the rise and fall of American soap operas before the genres recent re-birth.
