    Very nice retrospective from Ms Cooper, such a wonderful actor she is.
    I was hoping to see some really early clips of Katherine & Jill with the original Jill, Brenda Dickson. But I don’t imagine that will ever come from CBS or Y&R considering all the issues concerning Ms Dickson.
    I loved the Foster and Brooks families and the early days of Y&R. What is being presented as Y& R now is a shadow of what it has been over the last 40 years. This new team of writers and producers are turning out a really boring, unexciting and dreadful show. I can’t make it thru an episode without turning it off. It lacks any of the style and flare that Y&R became known for. To bad they are bringing all those wonderful actors down with them. Just my opinion!

    That has to be one of their best spotlights so far!!! Jeanne is an icon and a very talented lady! She is so fabulous and I hope she can stay on for many more years!!! Love her!

    I wish there was some way they could bring back Katherines late husband Philip whom Jill had an affair with, and see how this would be played out between the two women. Also i wanted Esther to turn out to be Katherines daughter…neither one knew this, and were under each others noses all this time. Wonder what Jill would think?


    jim replied

    P.S. OK people, the subject is about Katherine and Jill…please dont bring up Dru again…i want to read your comments about the two actresses and their roles which the subject should be more about!!!
