I just read where Corbin Berson/Benson is tweeting, asking for prayers for Jeanne tonight..... he will not go into details, just saying it is a "rough night".

So not know if this is true or the latest internet hoax, but Facebook has a tweet from the actress who plays "Steffy" on B&B asking for prayers from Y&R viewers.

Anyone know what is going on???

continuation ( Jeanne Cooper

continuation ( Jeanne Cooper ):

CBS Soaps In Depth Official Page
Not sure what is going on, but actor/director Corbin Bernsen posted this about his mother, Y&R's Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) earlier this evening:

Need some prayers for my mom tonight. Pretty rough. Won't elaborate now, but I believe there's still more purpose for her on this journey, but that's not my call. I love her ...so much. I want peace for her. I hope this is okay to share with all of you who know and love her, you are my friends and in a sense part of my family and community. We talk openly and honestly about a great many things and you have no idea how much comfort it gives me. Know that she's resting peacefully and this is not a message meant to announce finality, not at all, but instead, ask you to have her in you thoughts through the night.

Here are some additional tidbits regarding Jeanne Cooper. She is in stable but critical condition at an LA hospital and is also in ICU. Doug Davidson (Paul), Daniel Goddard (Cane), and Tracey Bregman (Lauren) have all tweeted that she is resting peacefully and that they were all by her bedside.

Oh gosh, you could tell how fragile she was, the last year. To many health problems. I will say my prayers for her but how will they handle it on the show.

There is a message board on she knows soaps dot com about Jeanne's condition. There are messages posted there (Twitter repeats perhaps) from Corbin Bernsen, Eric Braeden, Doug Davidson, Tracey Bregman and Daniel Goddard. No details of her illness are given but she is apparently not in good shape.

I read the news on Twitter last night. Its very upsetting news. Several stars from Y&R and other soaps were tweeting their messages of support. Keep the prayers going.

I have been sensing lately

I have been sensing lately that (and it has been a nagging sensing mind you) that Jeanne may not be with us much longer. I know that's not a nice thing to say but when you've got that nagging sense that something is wrong or about to be wrong, for the most part, it does come true. Trust me when I say this, I hope I'm wrong, because I'd like nothing better than to be proven wrong.

Although, I can see that perhaps DC and Michael Fairman are deciding on how best to handle this news without offending Jeanne's family and the fans at the same time. welovesoaps.net has an article up on their website with the same messages from Corbin Bernsen and others. CBS Soaps In Depth doesn't have anything on their website but they do on their Facebook page. Soap Opera Digest I could care less about anyway especially since they pretty much snubbed Y&R during it's 40th Anniversary celebration and gave all of the coverage to GH.

harlee, there is a link on the main page for message boards so it should be under the Y&R link...I found it by a google search, though...I entered jeanne cooper ill and there was a link to that particular message board

I don't think the DC bloggers work on the weekends so they probably won't have this until Monday.

UPDATE AT 12:26 PM

UPDATE AT 12:26 PM EST:

Here's what Corbin Bernsen had to say about his mother, Jeanne Cooper (this information was taken from a post on soaps.sheknows.com message boards):

"All continues to be stable this morning. Still, hurdles in upcoming hours, but this woman I have been so incredibly fortunate to call my mother, my mentor and honestly my inspiration.... suffice to say the greatest boxers of all time aren't half the fighter she is. I'm just wowed by her tenacity and her sheer will. So many of you have noted that. It's truly awesome. I don't know how the day and the days ahead will play out, but I have faith, and between her fight and your - I'm at a loss for the right word here - miraculous, magnificent? - support, I'm once again overwhelmed by our potential and humanity. I had an extraordinary sound sleep... odd in the middle of this, but your words and prayers and kindness danced in my head and so moved me as I lay down to sleep last night. This is all just so extraordinary. I'll keep you posted throughout the day. But PLEASE keep her in your thoughts... and make sure today to tell the ones you love, that you DO love them. Hold close to you those you love. And perhaps even take a day to forgive and heal friendships and cross divides. You have no idea how powerful your good thoughts are and what can come of using them for goodness and Grace. I'm going to whisper into my mom's ear today and let her know of your support. Asleep or awake, I know that she'll smile, that wicked little smile that is only hers!

Thanks so much."

I spoke with someone close to the family and decided it best we not post anything. It's so easy to spread rumors, and while we're the first to jump on a casting story or backstage gossip, when it comes to someone's health, we want to be extra respectful. Ms. Cooper is in fact very, very ill and we at DC are all praying for her.

Jamey, as I suspected, I figured that you folks at DC were being extra careful and respectful of this story. My prayers go out to her, her family, and the cast of Y&R.

You all have realize that even when the story comes out you have to check sources, and sometimes they sit on it out of respect. I also hope Jeannie Cooper is all right! Saying prayers for our beloved Katherine Chancellor

Got home and nothing really

Got home and nothing really new, tmac thank you I found it went there first thing. Checking tweets some general updates. Oh I already teared up once today...I think we could losing another matriarch of one my shows.

Thanks Jamey for giving us an update. I don't want any more updates if it going to make us cry. Sad Sad

Over at the website everyone is loving and saying prayers and then someone posts bring back ML as "Katherine"...WTF! Angry NO, well wishes, or prayers offered to the great JC but already planning her recast! Angry

If something happens, Y&R needs to retire the character and have Mrs C. pass...I don't want a RECAST! Sad

Any news?

I know that it is not done this way, but if Jeanne makes it, which I think she will, and she is unable to return...SHE should be able to make the decision about recasting HER role.

I'd be on board with HER decision.

So let's PRAY she makes it through this and returns to the show to close her character out...returns full time (please), and/or they retire or recast based on her wishes.

She is Kay, so it should be her choice.

Our Mrs. C.

A damn class act and one of a kind soap character. 40 fantastic years and COUNTING!

(I was able to get this

(I was able to get this update from a friends twitter feed. He had posted it about 7 hours ago: 7:25 am EST now)

"Latest from Corbin re: his mom, Jeanne Cooper: #YR RT

Somewhat of an exhausting day with not much change for my mom. Healing is happening but outward signs are small and only visible in numbers I still don't fully understand. I prayed today with her, alone, vocally and assured her it was about recovery and not finality - so important. It seemed to genuinely lift her spirits or something energetic from a quiet place in her soul. Even got something of a smile when I asked for one but her brows suggested more of a "are you out of your ******* mind!" Had a laugh and cry over that. With so many ups and downs I also did some serious questioning about the bigger issues of God and faith, and why a younger fellow next door didn't make it with so many grieving family and friends waiting nearby. Just so odd, so much life actually in full display. I left the place drained, yet assured we are headed in the proper direction. This is truly a time I'll have to learn that we are indeed moving in a direction and there really is no map to guide, and I must put faith and trust in the journey that is an open road with bumps, curves, downhills, uphills and glorious views along the way. Left the hospital somewhat numb by the sheer volume of emotion experienced. For those who need a Cliff Note version of the above.. mom is steady, bumps in the road but heading in the right direction though still without guarantees and the absolutes I long for. Such is life, literally! God Bless all of you for your continued thoughts and prayers. They are the fuel right now and we're tapping into every ounce of it."

Another update from Jeanne's

Another update from Jeanne's son Corbin (posted 4 hours ago);

"Mom mouthed Sh*t last night 3 times. Not sure if she's over all of this, or pissed she can't watch #psych 2night. Improving either way!"

Glad to hear she is improving more everyday. Keep sending positive thoughts.
