isntdaveone why didn't you tell us!! Y&R's Katherine Chancellor Actress Hospitalized

'Young and the Restless' star hospitalized
by Lynette Rice


Veteran soap star Jeanne Cooper has been hospitalized and was listed in critical condition over the weekend in Los Angeles. Details have been scarce regarding Cooper, who has played Katherine Chancellor on The Young and the Restless since 1973. The actress’ actor-son Corbin Bernsen, however, has turned to Twitter and Facebook to give updates on his 84-year-old mother.

“I’ve been asked by many of the usual outlets to give interviews about whats going on and have kindly declined,” he wrote on his Facebook page Monday. “I respect who they are and what they do and their honest interest, but I also feel this isn’t a ‘news’ story, not yet. And by not yet I hope to share a story of the miraculous abilities of our mind and bodies and how people like all of you can come together for a common cause to affect change – in this case your prayers for my mom’s speedy recover – which as I’ve noted has already HELPED ENORMOUSLY.

“For now I’m going to use this forum and Twitter (for smaller announcements) as I believe there is great value in reaching out to all of you and informing you of an honest appraisal of where things are at, and at the same time use the conversation and forum for the collective healing powers that you are creating. In short, staying positive, sending and receiving love and not making something out of all of this to create headlines. There’s a time for that but it’s not now.”

On Sunday, Bernsen posted this Tweet: “Back from hospital, not much change for mom but heading in the right direction. Embracing small steps and signs toward recovery. Wow!”

People are speculating that the show is incorporating her actual problems into the storyline, and since they just announced she has a brain tumour... idk man :(

Haha, does Redric ring any bells? She can't remember his last name.
tigtogiba34 16th-Apr-2013 01:36 am (UTC)

tigtogiba34 16th-Apr-2013 01:37 am (UTC)

I cried when she won her Emmy a few years back.

I don't watch Y&R. I tried when I was getting into soaps, back in 2003/2004, but it didn't do anything for me, but still, when you're a soap fan you kind of just know who the 'legends' are, and she's one of them.

I hope she gets better!
josiefier 16th-Apr-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
I've been hearing about this via some of the actors on Twitter. Hope she gets well soon!

I follow her son Corbin because he plays Shawn's father on Psych. He tweeted an update today. He said she's doing better than before, but still need prayers.

I love her character, my thoughts and prayers have been with her when he tweeted about her this weekend.

Get well soon Grand Lady Katherine aka Mrs. Cooper <3

isntdaveone didn't want to mess it up with their porn avatars that's why.

That being said, I hope she's ok. :/

If you knew anything about dave you would know that his SOAP posts never contain the gay porn avatars.
