While doing a personal appearance in Choctaw Mississipi over the weekend with several of her “Y&R” cast mates, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) at the urging of her fans gave some Genoa City soap scoop. In an article from Our Prattville, Cooper said for fans to start guessing as to who Katherine’s real biological daughter could be, now that Jill is not. Here is an excerpt:
“When asked if the actors could divulge any delicious Soap scoops, Cooper excitedly exclaimed that she could indeed spill the beans about the relationship between her and Jill.
“Even though we were recently brought together because of Cane, that is not going to last for long,” Cooper asserted. “You know, Jill is not my daughter. Well, we’re going to find out who really is my daughter… so start guessing!”
Cooper also remarked that as much as she loved Murphy and did appreciate him saving her life, Katherine did not like to go fishing! Michael Fairman (who plays the character of Murphy) was lauded by one and all in the room as being a great actor and a complete joy to work with on the set.
The group shared another intriguing item regarding contract negotiations. Cooper related that LeBlanc’s contract was up soon and that she knew exactly what they were going to do. Countered LeBlanc, “I’m just white-knuckling my career as it is.”
