Y&R's Jeanne Cooper: "I'm Not Here So Katherine Can Serve Rice Pudding"

The Young and the Restless' Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) is fired up and isn't holding anything back. In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest, the actress talked candidly about her character's current state of docility. Said Cooper:

"I had a talk with Maria Arena Bell that this has to stop," huffs Cooper. "There's such a thing when characters move into a secondary position for a small time, but when they do open their mouths, it should mean something. Katherine has never been a floater with, 'Yes, dear,' or 'Oh, I understand.' She says, 'You did it and you deserve it!'

Cooper also voiced her gripes about her storyline with Stephen Nichols (Tucker) falling by the wayside.

Y&R's Stephen Nichols on Tucker vs. Kay: "I Am Going to Get Her"

On Air On Soaps' Michael Fairman dished with The Young and the Restless' new catch (thank you Babs!) Stephen Nichols on what viewers can expect with Tucker's plot for long lost mama Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper).

MICHAEL: So we can safely assume that the conflict and confrontations between Katherine Chancellor and her son, Tucker, will continue? He is out for revenge on his mother!

STEPHEN: Yes, he is out for revenge on his mother. I mean any kid that was put in an orphanage at birth, and whose mother put him there and never looked back, would feel resentful of that. So yeah, I am going to get her.


WTF? Katherine Chancellor Dumpster Diving?

By now viewers of The Young and the Restless are well aware of the fact that grande dame Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) is fond of young Daniel Romalotti, Jr. (Michael Graziadei), due in part to his relationship with her good buddy Amber (Adrienne Frantz). Kay and Daniel have an even greater reason to be close. She was married to the ever-struggling artist’s late grandfather, Rex Sterling (Quinn Redeker), hell Kay even put the boy’s aunt and father in her will!  READ MORE
