Jeanne Cooper (Katherine, Young and the Restless)Soapdom is delighted to share that Young and the Restless' Jeanne Cooper is on the mend and heading back to work on the soap.

It was reported several weeks ago that Cooper would be taking a medical leave and that four-time Best Actress Emmy Award winner Michael Learned would be filling in.  "Michael Learned is an accomplished actress and we are grateful that she is able to fill in for Jeanne Cooper for this short time," said Y&R Executive Producer/Head Writer Maria Arena Bell. 

"Jeanne is an integral part of our show and we look forward to her immient return," Bell continued.

Today, Cooper gave the wonderful news to her Facebook fans:

"Hello there, I am back. As most of you know I have been under the weather for quite some time now. But the good news is that I will be going back to work next week. Boy I did get hit hard with a nasty bug! Thank you all for your well wishes. They mean so very much to me. I love (you) all and hope to be able to post more often. Much, much love, Jeanne."

And it's a good thing Cooper took her time and got well-rested.  According to Bell, "We have great storyline coming up for Mrs. Chancellor."

Cooper has starred on The Young and the Restless as Katherine Chancellor for 38 years. No word yet on her return air date.

Michael Learned's first airdate pinch hitting as Katherine is Thursday, November 10, 2011.

Past Blast

All My Children's Walt Willey opens up about being a stand up comic

All My Children may be off the air, but one of it’s most, charming, debonair, drop dead gorgeous, and hilariously funny stars, none other than Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery), is out on the road again doing his stand up comedy act.  On Sunday, May 18, Willey hits the Detroit area, starring for one night at Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, MI.  

Soapdom’s Laurie Bedigian caught up with Willey over the weekend via email and asked a few questions about his comedic roots, his love of acting, his comedy heroes and more.  Plus, he shares a bit about what the audience can expect on show night.  All I can say is the subject of sex may be involved.  Say what?  I’ll let Willey clear that one up for you.  LOL
