It’s been 31 years since “The Young and the Restless’” Kate Linder first donned a black and white outfit and debuted as Esther Valentine, the maid of Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper). And even though the character has had a few of her own storylines, she will forever and always be tied to the great dame who first brought her to the screen. Soap Opera Network recently spoke with Linder to discuss Esther’s future sans Katherine and sans Cooper.
“The Young and the Restless’” Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard) and Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) have been through so many ups and downs in their relationship, it’s a wonder nobody in Genoa City has built a rollercoaster in the couple’s honor. With so many twists and turns, it would be one hell of a ride. And Cane’s alter ego, Goddard, recently revealed to Soap Opera Network that their tumultuous connection is about to get a lot wilder!
HLN, the host network of the annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards, has announced additional presenters for the awards telecast, now in its 40th year, presented live from The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 16, 8-10 p.m., ET/PT.
Fans of “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) were kept in the loop about the actress’ illness and eventual passing by her son, Corbin Bernsen (“Psych”), and now the actor is set to speak out yet again on his mother’s tragic May 8 death.
To commemorate Cooper’s passing, Bernsen will be appearing on the Wednesday, June 5 episode of “Marie,” the Marie Osmond-hosted Hallmark Channel talk show, and two heart-wrenching clips from the episode have been released.
With the passing of Jeanne Cooper, many wondered what would happen to the iconic character she portrayed for more than 39 years – that of Katherine Chancellor. In today’s “Tribute to Jeanne Cooper,” Jess Walton (Jill Foster Abbott) announced in the opening segment that the show would address the death of Cooper’s character on screen.
On today’s episode of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless,” cast members, family and friends gathered for a special tribute episode celebrating the life of Jeanne Cooper, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 84. Cooper, the Emmy Award-winning actress who portrayed Katherine Chancellor for more than 39 years, is the show’s longest-running cast member.
With the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards just a couple of weeks away, HLN has released a list of presenters slated to appear and hand over awards at the exciting award show ceremony. Betty White, Steve Harvey, Wayne Brady, Alex Trebek, Todd Newton, Bethany Frankel and Kris Jenner are included, with White and Brady presenting Monty Hall and Bob Stewart, respectively, with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Awards.
As previously reported, CBS will air “The Young and the Restless: Tribute to Jeanne Cooper,” in place of an original episode of “Y&R,” on Tuesday, May 28. In a newly released clip, Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) says, “My favorite thing that Jeanne would do is on cue, cuss at Jess Walton [Jill Foster Abbott],” He added, “…I would get Jeanne to say things to Jess that would make a truck driver just freak out.”
“Every single time, without a doubt, Jess would react, and Jeanne would just laugh and laugh and laugh — and that’s one of the things about Jeanne that I loved the most.”
CBS Daytime’s “The Price is Right” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” are joining forces with “The Young and the Restless” to pay tribute to the life of the late Jeanne Cooper, who for more than 39 years portrayed Katherine Chancellor on daytime’s most watched drama series.
After the news that “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) passed away earlier this month, the long running sudser announced plans to air a tribute episode to honor the soap veteran’s 40 years on the show. Cast members, friends and family gathered on the set last week to film the special tribute (which is scheduled to air on Tuesday, May 28), and an official teaser trailer has been released!
