It’s been a scary and emotional two weeks for the family of Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, “The Young and the Restless”), who were stunned when the actress fell ill and was admitted to the hospital earlier this month. Her son, Corbin Bernsen, took to social media to keep fans in the loop on his mother’s uphill battle, and over the weekend, it was announced that Cooper has finally been released and is finishing her recovery at home!
It’s been nearly two years since Erin Chambers last appeared as “General Hospital’s” Siobhan McKenna, and it looks like the actress (who also played “Days of our Lives” Lacey Hansen) is headed back to soap, this time on “The Young and the Restless”!
When "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" debut with brand new episodes on Monday, April 29 on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, they will have the full support of CBS Daytime. Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime, wishes Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz, whose Prospect Park licensed the two soaps from ABC in 2011, nothing but the best. She relays via Soap Opera Network, "Congratulations and best of luck on the success. Your success is our success and vice versa. And it’s just a thrilling new experience and I look forward to seeing where the journey takes you."

An ABC representative has confirmed to Soap Opera Network that Maura West (ex-Carly Snyder, "As The World Turns"; ex-Diane Jenkins, "The Young and the Restless") is joining the cast of "General Hospital" as Ava Jerome. West is scheduled to debut during the week of May 6, which promises viewers will see "tons of exciting things happening that week."
The behind-the-scenes drama that’s been brewing since Prospect Park filed a lawsuit against ABC on April 18 is about to get even soapier! According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, Prospect Park producers wished to buy ad space for the revived “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” during broadcast soaps (“General Hospital,” “Days of our Lives,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and “The Young and the Restless”), but CBS and NBC allegedly refused to help promote the competition — and in light of the $25 million lawsuit Prospect Park launched against ABC, the alphabet network won’t be running spots for the show, either!

“The Young and the Restless’” Christian Jules LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin) has added yet another title to his resume: Co-chair of Dining Out for Life, an organization that encourages people to dine out at restaurants in New Orleans (on Thursday, July 18, specifically), which will help men, women and families in the community affected by HIV and AIDS.
When you’re front and center on a soap opera day in and day out, life can be a little hectic. Just ask “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who verges on spending more time as his alter ego than he does himself! “With a character like Adam that’s always in the mix, the sheer content alone — the amount of pages that I memorize daily, with a front and center kind of character — it’s madness!” he says with a laugh. “But you adapt and you kind of get in your groove, and now I can’t believe how much this place feels like home.”
