According to WRAL.com out of the Raleigh, North Carolina area, The Young and the Restless, Sharon Case (Sharon) and Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) were unable to attend this weekend’s highly touted CBS Soap Star Spectacular. The report cites that Jeanne Cooper was taken ill, and that Sharon Case refused to fly to the event unless she got a first class ticket. Here are some excerpts from the post:
“Jeanne had an excuse – she is ill with viral pneumonia, event organizers said. Being the trooper she is, organizers said Jeanne wanted to make the trip with her doctor, but they told her to stay home and get better. Fans signed large “Get Well” cards for Jeanne. Sharon was more of an interesting story. Apparently, several of the soap stars had to work on Friday and had to catch a red-eye flight to make it to Saturday’s fan event in Myrtle Beach, S.C. There were only three tickets left on the flight and they were all coach. Event organizers said Sharon told them she would not fly coach and therefore would not be attending the event.”
