When Ms. Cooper had a face-lift in 1984, it quickly became Katherine’s face-lift, with footage of Ms. Cooper’s actual surgery incorporated into the broadcast.

Loved it. So much detail, hard to remember it all. I love her stories about herself and Hollywood contemporaries whom she associated with / dated. LOVE her SPUNK. Love that she identified herself very closely with her long time character Katherine Chancellor. Loved how she talked so much about her children. She also talked about her philanthropic passions as well. She was a great spirit on and off camera. She was very versatile actor. I love the way she spoke of her long time cast mates on Y&R. Basically I loved the book!

Last spring after watching "The Young and Restless" for many years, I couldn't tolerate the ridiculous plot. Then in May I checked to see if it had gotten any better. It hadn't, and two of the central characters were missing-- Catherine Chancellor was on vacation, Phyllis Newman was in a coma, and what was left was a mess.

Later in August, I learned that Jeanne Cooper had died, so I read "Not Young, Still Restless," which she wrote not long before her passing. The life she describes is almost too wonderful to be real. She was fortunate in her rise as an actress and went from one challenging role to another. Y&R was the best decision she every made career wise, despite having had many other choices. Her marriage to husband Harry was a mistake, but she adores their children and they her. She is friends with all the actors she ever worked with and remains close with all the people she's met while being involved in charity work.

With her admitted outspoken personality, didn't she have some clashes with others along the way? The only one Jeanne mentions is with Melody Scott Thomas (whose husband was a long-time producer of the show) whom she says stopped speaking to Jeanne for two years. Jeanne writes that she didn't ask what the problem was until after Melody started being friendly again. Really? They rehearsed together but never talked privately about the problem? This stretches the imagination because their story lines have been interwoven for decades. Nikki considered Katherine her rock, a substitute for the mother who deserted her. Katherine helped steer Nikki through her many problems with her husband Victor, who was also Katherine's long-standing friend. Nikki and Katherine were also both alcoholics and alternated supporting one another after their many falls off the wagon. What did Melody say after a two years' silence?

Didn't she ever get frustrated with some of the outlandish scenes that were written for her on Y&R? She implies that she had some influence with most of the producers through the years, especially Bill and Lee Bell who created the show. No fireworks there?

Jeanne Cooper was an experienced actor who commanded the viewers' attention on Y&R for decades, despite silly situations and dialogue. Personally, I would have enjoyed more down-to-earth disclosures, and there are relatively few for such a long career.

I had a fleeting encounter with Jeanne Cooper once at a hotel in Santa Monica. I am not sure if she was having a bad day but I wasn't going to find out. Keep in mind that I was not approaching her or trying to make contact in any way. She looked tense and authoritarian and it made me wonder if real life mimicked Katherine Chancellor's latest problems. At the time Cooper's alter ego Chancellor was going through some heavy stuff. Needless to say, I was curious about what she had to say in this book but I wasn't sure I'd like Jeanne Cooper.
All things considered, this was a darn good book. Cooper, at least through the written word, seems to have a pretty good sense of humor while being tough when she needs to be. And apparently she really needed to be at times whether during disputes at work or in her home life with a cheating hubby who didn't seem to have any qualms regarding letting his successful actress wife support him.
Cooper has lived a very interesting and un-Katherine Chancellor life that I think most people can relate to because she wasn't born into the good life. She is frank and gutsy and, at times, far more revealing and honest than most celebs. She has a unique way with words and storytelling that left me howling at times whether she was talking about kicking that scoundrel husband Harry Bernsen to the curb finally or her romance with co-star/fictional son Beau Kayzer. While she waxes about her soap co-stars and the business of acting, she keeps it interesting and relevant. Even a first trip to a drive-thru sounds like high adventure through Cooper's eyes.
Needless to say, now when I think back to Jeanne Cooper and that day in Santa Monica, I can help but wonder if she was thinking about Harry Bernsen or just having a Katherine Chancellor sized trauma. This is a great read and one that moves far too swiftly.

I was a late commer to viewing Y&R but soon learned that Jeannie Coopers portryal of Kathrine Chancelor was definately a Leading Lady. It was fun to look at the jewels she always wore and the beautiful clothes. Those were her sparkeling trademark but her portrayal of the role was so filled with drama and emothion I felt I was in the room watching the. I could not resist purchasing her book and as I read her words, it was like having her in my house and she was telling the story to me personally. She shared her life with all her readers. Some of it was very sad and some of it was full of joy. Her three children were wonderful and I loved the stories about her animals.

Jeannie Cooper was a very gracious woman who extended herself financially to many people who needed assistance, wether it just be a sympathetic ear or financial, she found a way to help so many people. She unselfishly asked for nothing in return. I know that all the lives she touched have been blessed. Just as my own life has been both enriched and blessed after reading her book.

Y&R willl never be quite the same.

Her family will always feel a void when they are together.

This is one book I have saved on my Kindle. I want to go back again and again to fill my cup with her wisdom.
