307 May 3rd, 2013 UPDATE: Corbin Bernsen’s Heartbreaking Message On The Condition Of Y&R’s Jeanne Cooper!

Courtesy/CBS

As we post this, it is late in the evening in Los Angeles, and there has been a recent post from Corbin Bernsen on his facebook page relating his thoughts and his update on the condition of his beloved mother, and our colleague and friend, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) of The Young and the Restless.  From reading Corbin’s heartbreaking message, it would indicate that Jeanne is struggling.  Here is what he related to Jeanne’s fans, friends, and loved ones everywhere:

Corbin Bernsen:  “Clearly from my messages you all must realize the situation, and that what I had hoped and prayed for – more time – may just end up being the brief moments I had with mom earlier this week. I asked God for time, I got it and tried to fill it with as much love and laughter as I possibly could. Sitting in a movie tonight, mildly distracted from it all, I got a call from my brother and he said we have to stop being unfair. She’s struggling too much. We have to let her go. I took it in, calmly, and walked back into the theater, finished the movie – Darn good Iron Man 3. I then went back to my hotel room, where I am now and broke down, conceding any fight I had left. I don’t want her in pain. I don’t want her in fear. I don’t want her in agony. And Jeanne Cooper, Katherine Chancellor, Wilma Jeanne is a fighter! She will kick ass as long as we let her but I know now it is only for us, not for her. I had to think back sitting in her bedroom several days ago… she pointed to several objects, paintings, telling us their “value.” Not much really but SHE WANTED US TO KNOW. I think she knew she was ready then, to let go. But she needed to test us to see our reaction – My reaction! Of course I immediately said, “not ready to go there mom,” demonstrating exactly what she suspected; that I wasn’t ready quite yet. So she hung on. Went another round. The boxer pleasing the team in their corner.

I said goodbye to her yesterday, and even then not fully meaning it or expecting that would be the last time I saw her. But now it will have to do as we enter this weekend letting her final voyage begin. And I’m good with it, honestly. Enough to be saying it here. You all have been a tremendous ear for me, to verbalize my struggles with all of this… even now with these very words… I am good. I am good. I don’t want her in pain. I don’t want her in fear or agony. Along with her tremendous success she’s had too much of all that in her lifetime. And she’s shared much of it with all of you, candidly. So I’m giving her this weekend, take the holiday, mom, make it yours, let it take you where it will. My final words to her last night were, “I’ll see you again.” And I will, either here or there. Prayers please for her safe and peaceful journey. I may take a break here for a bit and stay silent in prayer and mediation for the next few days… Then again, I am my mother’s son and staying quiet isn’t always an option. May the light of God grace shine upon us all this weekend. Make it about love, compassion, and honesty, and in doing so you will honor my mom and the examples she has always tried to set, to this very moment.”

There are no words to express how we feel, as I am sure all of you who come to On-Air On-Soaps and who had admired and loved Jeanne for 40 years on the number one soap,also feel.   Share your thoughts with us here, and we will keep you posted on the latest developments as the situation warrants.

    I am so very sorry. This wonderful woman…she is the epitome of a kind soul. I always thought she was invincible. My mother passed away in 2005…and she loved “Mrs. Chancellor.”
    My heart is breaking for her family and friends.
    Prayers and love, being sent.
    God bless you.

    I have never watched Y&R and don’t really care to, but I did read this post, and I was just wondering something, cause maybe I missed something. Did she die? and if not, I was wondering how I could contact Corbin Bernsen personally, before any decision is made.

    No matter how bad or serious her condition is; or even if she’s at the brink of death, God can still heal her. I’ve never prayed for her before cause I never knew about it before, but THIS is nothing for God to heal; infact, to Him, this is no worse than a stomach ace. God knows best, whatever happens, but l WILL pray for her cause I have no doubt that God can her heal her. I just wouldn’t want her family to do anything right now until God has a chance to do HIS part. Yes, I know God could have healed her already, but I also know that He likes the interaction between Him and us, so I’ll pray (at least over the weekend), and I can only hope (and pray) that the family doesn’t do anything til then. Once again, this is absolutely NOTHING for God

    find this post offensive and out of line, Jeanne Coopers family is fully capable of looing after her best interests, and some Religious Zealot trying to give false hope and who does not even know who this fine lady is, should just tend to their own business.

    Krista replied

    I’m not sure how to reply back to a reply, but this is for g beau. How in the world is this post offensive? Just because Jeanne’s family is praying for doesn’t mean that I can’t. And please enlighten me; I would love to know what Religious Zealots are. This post is about Jeanne Cooper and her illness, so I don’t understand why you would even post something like this. If it was to try to start an argument with me, it’s not gonna work. I don’t need to know this lady to pray for her and DO NOT imply that God cannot heal her, as that is what it sounded like in you reply to me when you mentioned false hope. I’m sorry, but when somebody needs prayer (and I know about it), I will not just tend to my own business as you put it. I have not one single shred of doubt that God can heal her………. and guess what? From what I have heard, He’s already started. I asked about her yesterday, and someone told me that she was improving and that she was up walking around with her daughter. You can thank and praise God for that!

    When I read your message to us, I cried. It is so very kind & thoughtful of you to share such a private moment.
    I refer to Mrs.Chancellor/aka Jeanne Cooper as the Grand Dam.Not only because of the way she carries herself,her acting, her style,her genuinness.She is a class act.
    My thought’s & prayers are sent your way. Please take care.

    I met your mother and for that I feel blessed. I hold the autographed picture and the kind words that she spoke to me about my own beloved grandmother who was struggling with a terminal illness. She wrote her a personal note and my grandmother treasured it until her passing. I am so sad to think of this world without Jeanne in it. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with her, but I know that she will be just fine in the arms of God. We are left to miss someone who truly made this world a better place with her kindness and her grace. The show will never be the same without her and neither will the world. Go with God Jeanne, and tell my grandmother that I love her. Love you, Kimberly

    My heart breaks for the family. I have loved Jeanne Cooper for all the years she has been on Y&R and so many other TV shows. If it is indeed her time to go home, I pray for strength for the family. I lost my mom 6 years ago after a 32 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease that started when she was 46. It left her with Alzheimer’s. When my mom passed I thanked God for finally giving her peace. I knew she would be in a better place, that she would always be with me, and that I WILL see her again. My prayers & my love go out to the entire family. Corbin, thank you for realizing that we fans love your mom too and for your kindness & courage in sharing your sadness with us. Ms Cooper thank you for years of smiles. <3

    Sending prayers for God’s grace to be with her, and her family. I can’t stop crying. I have watched her since I was 12 years old. I watched at my Grandmothers side. My Nanny was a housewife, and the way that she learned of the changing times was through the Soaps. Jeanne Cooper and her way of sharing herself with her fans helped my Nanny to except new ideas about fashion, and life choices. My heart breaks for her family, and for her many co-workers through the years who have been better for having known and worked with her. Also for her millions of adoring fans who will miss her. She was a pioneer and forged the way clear for the others to come behind her. She was one of a kind! My message to her family, “we fans will all continue to pray for your strength during this time!”

    Back in the early 70′s I learned my own mother watched soaps. As I became an adult, I would visit my mother at lunchtime and we would sit and eat our lunch while watching As the World Turns. Each day I would leave giggling that my mother would watch these. One day I got an early lunch and went to my mother’s and she said to me “There is a show that fits you more, so we should watch that when you come” Giggling under my breath, I sat and watched the Young and the Restless and got HOOKED. Soon after my mother got cancer and it was more important than ever that I had my lunches with her, it was our time. I then owned my own business so I would take two hour lunches and we would watch Young and the Restless first, for me and then As the World Turns for my mother. My mother sadly passed away in 1988. I continued to watch Young and the Restless, throughout my life, at lunchtime as I felt close to my mother in keeping our tradition and have been a fan ever since. I am 53, I never miss an episode and Jeanne in so many ways reminds me of my mother. I feel like I come home to the comfort of the parent’s home and my mother is with me every Monday through Friday at 12:30. Jeanne is such an important part of my life due to this and I weep quietly feeling like I am loosing my mother all over again. Jeanne was her favorite charater and felt that she was so misunderstood. ” Now that is a lady with class” she would say. If I could say one thing to her? I would say thank you. Thank you for being there all these years, thank you for being a part of my life and my mother’s and thank you for keeping her with me after she passed with this one hour a day show. I love you

    Jeanne Cooper is and always has been a fighter! More than that, she has always been the prize. Our prize. She’s is a beautiful, wonderful soul who we have been blessed with for many years. Her passion for life and her talent and grace have touched us all. She is a “Epic Icon” of daytime. As we pray for her strength, may we pray for her peace and comfort. May we pray for her safe and fearless journey whether it be here or there. God carries us through many journeys in life. It is the here on Earth journey that takes us on winding paths toward more and more adventures. Some struggles and some when the way is clear and comforting. Then there is our one last journey, toward him. He guides us home to our eternal rest and peace. This battle Jeanne is fighting now is in his hands. I pray for her peace, her comfort and her strength. I pray for her fears to be lifted and her journey to be clear and bright. Jeanne will always be our daytime sunshine. A sunshine who’s rays extended out to each of us warming our hearts and blessing us for years. God, please be as kind and forgiving and guide her in the most compassionate and graceful journey. Let her know how much we all love her and appreciate her. AMEN

    It is good that he found the strength to make peace with the fact his mother’s body is mortal, and like all of us one day will leave our mortal bodies behind and our spirits will continue onward, back to the One who created her.
    I know when my father was dying of cancer 18 years ago, I went through all the emotions he did. First you are positive your loved one will beat the odds and defeat their illness. Then the setbacks, the doubt, the fear and the denial. Then the exhaustion and then the realization what is best for your loved one, and what we want are often not the same. Then you make peace– you cannot put off death forever- you released your loved one. Yes, you will mourn, and life will never quite be same without their physical presence, but slowly you sense them around you even in death, and you are comforted.

    So I too pray she will have a peaceful exit from her body and her journey continues with God’s Grace.

She will have met her match, because she’ll have to listen to “What’s New Pussycast” all t he time — his favoarite song during his battle with cancer before Y & R debuted. God blessed your mother and you with such strong, amazing talents and gifts .. and you decided to follow His plan, share them with us, and definitel y make the world a better place. That’s all any of us can do. May God hold each of you closely, as He is holding her right now and will be forever. God answer sour prayers, not always giving us what we want, but what we need. You needed some time, you got it. We needed her for many years — we got them. and YOU, as well. THANK YOU so much for sharing this journey with us, as it is just beginning for her. I pray you’ll keep us posted. We feel like you are all part of our extended family – God’s family. and right now He is smiling because He will get to be with her forever in eternity. You are all loved very much for your kind, giving spirit and admired and respected for your strong, unyielding faith. God bless all of you.

    What would soaps be without our Katherine Chancellors, our Iris Carringtons, our Dorian Lords, our Lucinda Walshes? On the page, they were vile women but their portrayers made us fall in love with them. Jeanne is one such remarkable actress. It feels like Beverlee McKinsey’s death all over again. I am so at a loss for the right words to articulate the respect I feel for this magnificent woman Jeanne Cooper.

    I have watched Y & R from day one and it has been a long 40 year ride with all of the actors and actresses who have come and gone.
    But through it all, one of my favorite characters has been Katherine “The Duchess” Chancellor. Right or wrong, good and bad Mrs Jeanne Cooper has played this role with a graceful, beautiful, very funny and witty, finesse that no one else could ever do.
    I am not demeaning Michael Learned’s short time fill-in for Jeanne. She had some tough shoes to fill.
    However, through all these years, we have loved, hated, been jealous of, laughed at, laughed with, cried over, cried with, been angry with, loved her again and again, admired her strength and tenacity for the many faces of Katherine Chancellor.
    Now, our love is extended to Corbin Bernsen and the rest of Jeanne’s family as they come to grips with the passing of their beloved “Duchess”.
    May the peace and comfort of our Lord and Savior be with them as they accept this new journey that Jeanne is on.
    We love you Jeanne Cooper, aka Katherine Chancellor.
    You will be greatly missed by me and by all of your most ardent and faithful fans.
    God speed.

    All my prayers for Jeanne and her immediate family. She is a woman of such grace, beauty, kindness and one heck of an actress. I have enjoyed watching Y&R as a young kid and still do today. She is by far my favorite actress because of her “No Holds Barred” attitude. Whatever the good Lord has planned for her she has fought the good fight and though it’s hard to see our loved ones go we must accept it with a heavy heart. May she find peace in the arms of our Lord if her time is near and that her family and friends find comfort in him knowing that she is in good hands. Love you Mrs. Chancellor.

    I have never watched Y&R and don’t really care to, but I did read this post, and I was just wondering something, cause maybe I missed something. Did she die? and if not, I was wondering how I could contact Corbin Bernsen personally, before any decision is made.

    No matter how bad or serious her condition is; or even if she’s at the brink of death, God can still heal her. I’ve never prayed for her before cause I never knew about it before, but THIS is nothing for God to heal; infact, to Him, this is no worse than a stomach ace. God knows best, whatever happens, but l WILL pray for her cause I have no doubt that God can her heal her. I just wouldn’t want her family to do anything right now until God has a chance to do HIS part. Yes, I know God could have healed her already, but I also know that He likes the interaction between Him and us, so I’ll pray (at least over the weekend), and I can only hope (and pray) that the family doesn’t do anything til then. Once again, this is absolutely NOTHING for God.

    I went through something similar with my grandmother. It’s very hard for the living and it is somewhat selfish, but understandably so. We don’t want to lose this tremendous person.

    I watched Friday’s ep today and it was a shock to see Kay on screen since I know Jeanne is in the hospital. To think that a few weeks ago, or whenever she taped it, she was able to work and now she is struggling to live, die, is very sad. I don’t want to lose Kay, Mrs. C. I don’t want her children to lose their mother.

    I have must respect and admiration for Corbin and his sharing of his mother and his pain. I was an extra on “Major League II” and Corbin was fabulous. He was funny and gave autographs (unlike the ‘star’). XOXO

She was so lovely, sweet and soooooooo down to earth. She gave me a hug which I’ll never , ever forget. I cried when I read what Corbin, wrote about his mom. I know, because I lost my mother and father over five years ago. I still grieve all the time. You never ever stop!!!!!!!!!! So I can relate believe me.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. My mom always told me to leave the things behind you always end up finding them at the end.. She watched Y&R way before I did and in 1973 I told my mom I think it’s time for ME to watch your favorite Soap and till this day I’m still watching. Your mother has been in my household for 40 years and in my heart. I feel like she has been part of my family. As I write this tears run down my cheeks for I know you don’t want her to suffer. As for my mother God rest her soul suffered in her life also. But I can always remember the memories of your mom and how well she was liked. Now I have my husband watching the show and he’s sad over your mom’s condition also.. We pray for the Lord to keep her with him.. and to carry her soul threw the gates of Heaven.

    Man this is so strange, it’s beautiful the things he is writing, but we are going through the process with them after reading his messages. And we never get that with any other entertainer really. And I’m also wondering why the mainstream media isn’t reporting on this, is it because it’s too soon to cover it? I know they definitely will when she has passed.

    And with her telling her sons what her things are worth, I think that’s a definite sign that she’s not long for this world. I don’t want to say it because I don’t want it to happen, I want her alive and doing well. But her spirit knows her time is not long and when that happens they let us wrap things up before it’s our time to pass over.

    I’ve never been a big fan of Y&R but Jeanne seems like a real spitfire and yet classy at the same time, I love that about her. I did love the Catherine and Jill fights, the show isn’t the same without them. And hopefully they’ll do a great tribute to Mrs. C and also bring back Jill for those scenes.

    I love how Jeanne seemed to love and respect the soap Guiding Light, not only did she make an appearance in one of it’s final episodes, but she offered to pay for the travel for any of the other Y&R actors that wanted to go. Sadly the only one who went with her is the guy who plays Michael. But she also appeared on the Guiding Light anniversary special they had in 1992, and she said if she wasn’t on Y&R she would love to be on GL. I thought that was wonderful!

    Corbin, I feel like you are my brother. My mom raised me watcing your mom on TV. We loved Katherine and somehow through her grew to love Jeanne. She was thrilled when you played Father Todd. It made her so happy to see you with your mom.
    When my mom passed in 2011 watching the Y&R was one of my remaining connections to her and still helps me to this day to feel her presence in my life. I pray that you will experience your mom’s love and presence throughout your life as I continue to do, knowing that truly “Love never dies” and they are still with us in spirit, really watching over us. I can feel your love for her. Our mothers are the first and strongest connection we have in this earthly life and nothing can ever separate us from that unconditional love. I will be holding you, your mom and loved ones in my prayers and throughout my meditation time knowing that: The Light of God surrounds you. The Love of God enfolds you. The Power of God protects you and the Presence of God watches over you. Wherever you are, God is. With blessings of heartfelt peace and comfort. S

It is easier to let them go when we have no regrets and have said all we needed to say. This is life as it evolves and sometimes the hardest thing to come to terms with is that we are now that next generation who will be leaving our children some day.

    Jeannie is a true and cherished friend . She is family to me and even the possibility of losing her seems inconceivable. She has nurtured me, inspired me and loved me unconditionally and I am humbled by those gifts. This is an amazing woman, folks! I met her almost 24 years ago on the set of Y&R and I have adored her ever since. I am blessed to have her in my life and pray that privilege continues.

    My prayers go out to Corbin, Collin, Caren, Evelyn and the rest of her family, including her grandchildren, whom she treasures. I had the joy of speaking to her briefly last week., before this second hospitalization. She sounded weakened , but hopeful. I’m hanging onto that; I need to.

    Her legacy is secure. Her future uncertain, But just to make things perfectly clear to the powers that be upstairs…84 years is not enough for this special lady! Not for those of us who love her. And there are a lot of us!

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings as well as information on your dear Mother these past days and weeks. Not being selfish is letting those we love move to where they will be safe and secure. I lost my companion 4 months ago, and to tell him it was okay, I’ll be lost until I am with you, is the best we can do. I love your Mother, have for over 40 years, and will continue on, by reading over and over her stories and pictures in the 25th anniversary Y&R book I cherish. I am sorry for the times ahead, but am praying for you and Jeanne’s peace.

    I dont’t need to tell you how blessed we have all been to have had this wonderful woman in our lives on our TV for the passed 40 years. I’ve also seen her on many episodes of Perry Mason, old movies, and so much more. She was and still is such a beautiful, graceful presence in everything she has been a part of. My prayers of peace to you as our family and all us her fans. I do believe she knows how much she is loved and will be missed. God bless this beautiful woman, grant her peace.

    Corbin, what a beautiful post. I know how gut-wrenching to let her go can be but be strong. You have released her of trying to hang on albeit in pain and suffering. Her time may not be quite yet but at least she knows everyone is at peace.

    I can’t imagine Y&R without Mrs. C. She is the constant that holds it all together. I will continue to pray for whatever God has in store for her. I hope that her pain and suffering subsides quickly one way or another. My thoughts will be with you and your family during this difficult time. May this classy lady; queen of the soaps, rest peacefully.

    Corbin, family and friends:
    It is hard to say good-bye and let our loved ones “leave” us. I know, from personal experience, I lost my husband to cancer March 27, 2012. I forced myself to whisper in his ear “let go honey. Its ok – you can go now”. I was being selfish by not telling him sooner.
    He is now in a better place, no more pain. It does not mean we don’t still love them.
    The bravest and most unselfish thing you did was telling her “I will see you again.”

    With mother’s day being so close, this will be an extra bittersweet farewell for her son and family members. It’s never easy to tell your mom or dad goodbye.

    I lost my mom on Valentine’s Day 2009. I had said goodbye to her the October before, but like he said above, that saying it and feeling it and meaning it that time as the last goodbye… well I knew her time was coming to an end, but then again, I thought I’d see her again, and meant to come see her sooner… she died as I was flying out to see her, so I missed her.

    I’ll keep her and her family in my thoughts this weekend and next week too… it’s a hard thing to go thru, even if you think you’re ready or have accepted it. It’s still hurts.

Thank you for what you gave to us on Y&R. A beautiful lady inside and out. I will miss you so much.

    I have watched her for many years, be and I have read what she had to say. She is a strong woman. You are right, you have to tell her it is okay to leave because they know when you can’t accept it. She will be missed when she takes the next journey but she will be a wonderful angel and God needs some more flowers in heaven. My heart breaks for you and I know how you feel having lost my mother but being in heaven is a wonderful thing.

    This is such sad news. Gut wrenching to be honest. His words are so well placed and true to what he is going though. It must be so hard for him to bare his sol. But my question is, where are the tweets, messages or posts from her Y&R family? I hate saying this but the chances of her going back to Y&R so how will they handle this. Maybe they should update us all wanting to know what her last tape date was…anything.

    It was cathartic, in a way, to see her tonight and what she was saying (and feeling) to the others. Life imitating art? I’m forever grateful for her work and everything she’s brought to the show and to the world. God Bless, Wilma Jeanne. There had better be one hell of a tribute for the original bad ass! No one kept it real like Jeanne!

Your mom is a part of my family even though she doesn’t know me. You see, I have watch her on the Young and the Restless since I was a baby, and I am almost 40 years old. I feel like Jeanne is my last connection to my Great grandmother who I watched the soap with and my grandmother who I watched the soap with. We all know death is a part of life but it is never easy reaching those last days, weeks or months of life. I am really sad to see this. She is an amazing actress and has been a delight to watch in the 40 years I have watched. Peace and prayers for your family while you spend your moments with your mom. She will be greatly missed.

My mother was just like her and one year ago my sisters and I faced the same heartbreak……how to let this strong, fiesty, brave, unyielding woman go….was it for us…was it for her. In the end I let her go because pain, agony and fear were not the options. I miss her terribly as you will miss your beloved mother, Jeanne, Katherine. But each day that you remember the end days and the suffering, I pray that you thank God above for his mercy in taking her home. Yes, you will see her again. Those were my last words to my mother.

My dad died with cancer, my mother has dementia and my sister has myleofibrosis. She is in Gods hands but it is so hard to let go. She is one of the best characters on Young and Restless and no matter how far down she is, God can send her back to her family. It’s not over until God says it’s over.

She was so real, I don’t believe she was acting much of the time. I think she was being herself. I am sure right now, you don’t want to think of this, but, she is in a better place, I have no doubt, and you will see her again in your own time. She will be waiting for you one day. Be happy for her because as long as she is in your heart, she will be with you every day. When you see some of her favorite things, think good thoughts, because she will be watching you, too. Keep in touch with her Y & R family, because they were a BIG part of her life. They will be a means of support for you, if you let them. Love and prayers to all of you and I am saying one for Jeanne, too. God be with all of you.

    I know exactly what you’re going through right now and what you have been through. I travelled the same road with my Father in 1989 and years later when cancer claimed my wife in 2003. It is hard to let go of a loved one but it probably is one of the greatest loving acts that you can do for them. The last time I saw my wife I told her “Goodbye my love, go with God”. About a hour later, the hospital called and she had passed on. Later when you look back on this, you will realize that it was your love of yur Mother that made you want to keep her with you and it was also your love for her that made you realize that you needed to let her go. I don’t think there is any greater act of Love that one can do. God will look after her and He will be looking over you and your family, protecting and Loving you. My sympathies and condolances to you, your brother and sister and all of your families.
