    Jeane is a legend and Jess is a classy lady. Y&R is at its best when these two beautiful women are in scenes together. They are the show.

    jess walton is a sweetheart. she is a wonderful actress. i met her 5 years ago in vancouver bc canada. thats where i live. it was a charity for tea and snacks at a hotel. also katr linder was also there who plays ester valentine and christian leblanc. all of them are so very kind and very people. we all took pictures together. yes brenda dickson was the first jill. i did love her as jill foster abbott. but she was very difficult to work with. she was an annoying diva in real life. i have to say loved her outfits on the show she wore. brenda dickson looked very catty with all the make up she wore. lol.
