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!
In a statement released just a short time ago, Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," said, "JEANNE COOPER: respected colleague, industry icon, woman of passion and grandeur; most important, beloved friend. She was a shining beacon. Her love was unexpendable, and was given freely to all, from fans to great celebrities. She was not jaded by success, nor impressed by wealth and fame. Her crowning glory was her family: her children Corbin, Collin and Caren and her grandchildren, whom she adored, and all of whom adored her in return. Her presence resonated in the lives of all those around her. Through her personal and professional journey, she saved hundreds, possibly thousands, from the depths of alcoholism. She embodied compassion and forgiveness. No daytime icon has ever been more influential in the lives of millions. She will be terribly missed, but her light will shine on forever. May angels guide you on your journey, dear Jeanne. I will love you forever."
