Corbin Bernsen Continues to Ask For Prayers For Ailing Jeanne Cooper






The family of Jeanne Cooper, her The Young and the Restless co-workers and droves of fans have been reeling from news of the soap matriarch's hospitalization with a dangerous infection all weekend. Cooper's son, Corbin Bernsen (ex-Father Todd, Y&R; ex-Durant, General Hospital) is asking for prayers for the woman who has played TV's Kay Chancellor since 1973, via his Facebook and Twitter profiles. 

Here's the latest tweet from the L.A. Law alum:


Our thoughts and prayers are with Cooper's family and friends.

Been saying prayers since every night since the news broke. Now this story is playing and Jeanne will need time off I think they might have to recast temporarily I would think, I hope not because first meaty story Katherine has had and was so looking for Jeanne to shine. Sigh and saddness Sad

I think they should get Michael Learned again if she needs time off.

I want her back too. And I hope it happens.

If they need to temporarily recast, I'd also welcome back Michael Learned. I thought she did a good job. She's not Jeanne by any means, but she didn't try to be her either, which is always the best.

Speedy recovery Jeanne!

Michael Learned or Constance Towers would be good temporary or even permanent recast if worse came to worse. Hopefully, Jeanne Cooper will recover as there aren't many Matriarchs or Patriarchs still living in daytime.

I hope and pray she's going to be okay, but I honestly think this needs to be a wake up call for her. I don't think she should continue working, even if she recovers from this latest setback. AS much as I am sure she would miss her colleagues/friends and the daily grind, her HEALTH needs to come first. I would much rather see them give Kay Chancellor a dignified exit from the show than to have to see TPTB scramble to have to write Kay's demise because the actress died.

I liked Michael Learned when she temporarily stepped in, but I don't think I would want to see her (or anyone) playing Katherine PERMANENTLY.

With all due respect, I wish the poor woman and her family my symphaties. I hope she recovers soon and be with us vfor a long time...but if...there is no need to recast that role. Its not the Stpehanie Forrester of B&B, and even B&B does remarkably well without SF. So Y&Rv will definitely survive without the character of KC. No need to recast, just write the character off.

I just wish she is going to be well soon.

Jeanne Cooper IS Katherine. If, heaven forbid, Cooper is not able to continue her work on the show, I think they should write Katherine off of the canvas out of respect for her. As good as Michael Learned is and was, she'll NEVER be Katherine Chancellor!!

It still sounds like she is stable, which is good news.

I would HATE to see Jeanne not return, and selfishly the character no longer being on the screen.

The only way I'd be comfortable with someone else permanently being recast would be if Jeanne publically gave it her blessing. SHE may want her character to live on if she can't come back.

In the meantime we all pray she continues to improve so she can return to her family.

Sent her healing and prayers when I read about this. I hope everyone is, it really can make a difference. Y&R would not be the same without her on there!
