Tomorrow, Wednesday June 5th, on a very special episode of MARIE on the Hallmark Channel ( check times in your area), Marie Osmond welcomes television and motion picture actor/director Corbin Bernsen, who has come on the show to honor his mother the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, Y&R) who passed away one month ago on May 8th.

In emotional moments throughout his segment, Bernsen relays that his mother loved Marie, and that this is the only talk show appearance he will make, and has made, to discuss Jeanne’s passing and her legacy.

What followed was an emotional Marie and Corbin as they watched a clip from a past episode of Marie, where The Young and the Restless Daytime Emmy winner, discusses what being a mother for the first time when she had Corbin meant to her! Grab the hankies and watch the clips after the jump!

    Like I said the heart & soul is gone now with Bill Bell gone and now Jeanne! Rest in Peace my dear lady!


  2. Nikki says:

    Have they said what she died from yet? Does anyone else find it a little odd that they haven’t released that particular piece of information?


    Michael replied

    Nikki, she passed away from complications from COPD. As you may or may not know, Jeanne was a smoker much earlier in her life but had quit.


    Mo replied

    She died from primarily advanced COPD.


    chloe replied

    I think it was complications from her having COPD…God bless her soul!


    Judi replied

    Yes, Corbin did on FB. She died from complications from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). She was a smoker back in the day. So sad… I wish everyone would quit smoking!


  3. Derrick says:

    That will put a tear in your eye…………….RIP Jeanne!
    Corbin was trying to keep it together!


  4. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I think it’s beautiful what Marie Osmond has been doing for the daytime community, especially that of the Y&R family with her Hallmark talk show and it’s so beautiful that she’s allowed Corbin come onto her show and be able to show such a vulnerability. Kudos!


  5. CL says:

    It is not odd that we do not know why she died, she is gone and maybe the family doesn’t want to disclose what took her from this earth. Does it really matter why she died? I do not find it odd. Leave it go! RIP Jeanne!


  6. heidi says:

    Wow… both clips were so real and so emotional and heartfelt and just truly lovely! Corbin has been so sweet and eloquent with his posts throughout the last few months about Jeanne’s valiant fight. What a wonderful man and son! Jeanne will be missed for so long… Y&R just isn’t and won’t be the same without her. I have enjoyed still seeing her in the opening pictures… as she should be as her character is still alive on the show. It would be nice if they periodically showed her picture and had clips of her for at least the rest of the year and possibly beyond.

    Thanks Michael!


  7. Monica says:

    As a mother, she put into words how I feel everyday. Perfectly. What a gift she was. Her legacy lives on.


  8. Karen says:

    Never watch Marie’s show but knowing Mr. Bernsen would be on talking about his marvelous, talented, bawdy, beautiful mother-The Duchess, I had to watch and it was so worthwhile to do so. For me the cause of this lovely lady’s leaving this earth is not any of my business. If the family wishes to share it so be it. But some times private information is just that private.


  9. Liza says:

    Awww Corbin, you can tell he and the rest of the family were very close. I love that he’s carrying on her legacy and am glad he will be on Y&R for Kay’s funeral. Since I’ve always known JC as Katherine Chancellor I think it’s going to take that funeral for it all to sink in for me.


  10. Jolene Beth Morgan says:

    I am still so emotional about losing our precious Jeanne Cooper, it has been like losing a dear friend, and in a very Special way she was. I would have Loved to have known her. She was so Exquisitely Special and incredibly Unique! Her son Corbin is so like his mother, he has been blessed with her gift of being able to touch the hearts of so many, in a pure and sincere way. I truly believe there was not a phony bone in Jeanne Cooper’s body. She was honest to a fault, compassionate, and I believe that she had the capacity to deeply love her fans and every person that came into her life.


  11. Mary C. Morley says:

    I grew up watching Katherine Chancellor from the the first episodes of Y&R. It has always been a treat to enter her world, especially the scenes with her and Jill. You never knew what to expect. Jeanne Cooper will be dearly missed. As Victor put it, “We will never see the like(s) of her again.” She was indeed a unique character and beloved by her costars and fans alike. Rest in peace, dear lady. God’s blessings on your family at this time.
