(MK Remembers) On the Set with the Late, Jeanne Cooper and Corbin Bernson!

by MK Scott

Today the show, the Young and The Restless, memorialized Jeanne Cooper's Katherine Chancellor and will continue tomorrow.

I first saw the character of Katherine in the mid-80's playing opposite the dashing Thom Bierdz as her step son, Phillip, and she used him to tick off Phillip's mother, Jill.

In 1990, I got to see Jeanne Cooper in person as a guest on Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, as I sat in the audience, Cooper was accepting the Soap Opera Update MVP award as Best Actress of Y & R. I was actually living with a Man in New York who was a family friend of Jeanne's.

By the summer of 1991, I was back in my hometown of Portland, OR and pursuing Extra work on Feature Films. After losing a part in the Disney film, 'Homeward Bound", I was immediately needed for a multi-day shoot on a film that I knew nothing about. I later learned the stars of the film were Corbin Bernson (Cooper's Real son) and Shelly Long. The film was called 'Frozen Assets', yes, really!

(SOAP Q) The OTHER Side of Jeanne Cooper!

All the rage this Labor Day weekend in soapland has been  his video brought to the attention first by Daytime Confidential, that is probably the funniest thing we, or many soap fans have ever seen!
And what is even better is with video spoofs like the cast of Y&R’s “The Young and the Recyclable”!

(SOAP Q) Thom Bierdz Sings Video Letter To Y&R’s EP Jill Farren Phelps: “Why Can’t The Gay Chancellor Have a Date?”

In the “we-thought-we-have-seen-everything” category, The Young and the Restless artistically creative Thom Bierdz (Phillip Chancellor III) posted an open letter video-style to Y&R’s new executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps!

In it, Bierdz sings to Phelps a little ditty he wrote with lines like:  “There is no gay love on the number one soap.”  And, “Why can’t the Gay Chancellor have a date?”  Bierdz is apparently asking Phelps to create a gay romance for Phillip and bring him back to the top rated CBS soap, where thus far there has still never been a telling of a gay love story.

(SOAP Q) Michael Muhney of Y&R reveals on Twitter what kind of lover he would be if he were gay!

If I were gay I’d have a tramp stamp over my butt reading, “CLASSY.” Wait. If I were gay I’d be a “top”. Forget it.

Young and Restless airs its 10,000 episode this Thurs, 9/27 on CBS!

(SOAP Q) Greg Rikaart talks about his Twitter war with fellow soap star Melissa Reeves over anti-gay Chick-fil-A

Greg Rikaart, who plays Kevin Fisher on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless, found himself in Chick-fil-A war with Melissa Reeves of NBC’s Days of Our Lives who publicly showed her support of the fast food chain that is publicly against gay marriage and has donated millions in recent years to anti-gay causes.

Rikaart called Reeves out on Twitter and in a column he wrote for Huffington Post.

Rikaart (Semi-OUT) tells TV Guide: “I did get a lot of support but the general tone of political discourse in this country is very disheartening. I was getting challenged by some people for having attacked Melissa Reeves when, frankly, what I said was anything but an attack. I expressed my disappointment that she has aligned herself with a company that promotes hatred and bigotry, and I stand by that. I welcome a conversation with her. It’s the only way people on different sides of an issue can meet in the middle and understand each other’s point of view. I would have loved that opportunity with Melissa but she blocked me from her Twitter account. [Reeves subsequently blocked everybody by shutting down the account.]

(SOAP Q) Soap hunk Marco Dapper Talks about “EO2″!


It is always a joy to see Marco Dapper on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless.

Dapper got his start in the popular indie flick Eating Out 2 (Sloppy Seconds) which led to more modeling jobs than acting offers because of his buff body and handsome looks.

I actually shared a doughnut  with Dapper when he was in Seattle for the Premiere party of EO2 in 2007. 

But now the acting is on track with the soap role.

(SOAP Q) HUNK of the WEEK-Danny!

Danny began his career at 16 years old in 1980 as a teenage rock star doing concerts in Genoa City. He was often joined by his sister, Gina Roma (Patty Weaver), and his friends Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland), Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman), and Amy Lewis, who sang with him when he performed on stage. Lauren also joined him on the road for a time.

In 1984, Danny married friend and fan club president, Traci Abbott, when she became pregnant by her college professor, Tim Sullivan. Danny had been seeing Patty Williams, who left town devastated. Danny and Traci's marriage was later annulled after she miscarried. Danny became a rock star, toured worldwide and recorded many albums, but home was always Genoa City, where he returned nearly ever summer to do a big concert. He once lost his voice after being slowly poisoned by Shawn Garrett, who was jealous of his relationship with Lauren. He was told he'd never sing again, but he had a miracle recovery during a Christmas Eve church service.

(SOAP Q) CBS Profile on Y & R's Thom Bierdz!


Thom Bierdz is best known for his role as Phillip Chancellor III on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless.

He left the show in the mid-80s when family tragedy struck: his younger brother murdered their mother.

Thom immersed himself in writing and in painting then returned to the soap after decades away – this time as an openly gay actor whose character was now openly gay.

He was profiled on CBS 2 last night by Pat Harvey – an interview that will be a 30-minute profile airing in a month or so.

(SOAP Q) GAY 'Days': Will EJ seduce Will to get more trust, and will Will actually go all the way?

As Will is getting sucked into the world of former step daddy E.J. The two really have a wonderful chemistry and the scenes have a nice comic touch at times (remember Will is being Blackmailed, but loves the attention he is getting from EJ). Is Will starting to enjoy his work? I would love see EJ (a la, Adam to Rafe on Y & R) seduce Will and get even deeper into the Evil. As we can see from the clip Will is sexually attracted to his former step-father. EJ is totally capable of seducing Will and still come out looking straight! This certainly didn't hurt Adam, even Sharon isn't put off by Adam's seduction of Rafe! This is Gettin' Good!

Out actor/artist/author Thom Bierdz has not gotten to do any same-sex love scenes during his appearances on The Young and the Restless in recent years as Phillip Chancellor III.

But the latest episode of the web series Old Dogs & New Tricks gives him a chance to get between the sheets with blond and buff  Jeffrey Patrick Olson.

Thom Bierdz and I have much in common, and we share those traits with Michael Fairman who I interviewed here at www.lgbtSr.com not too long ago. We three amigos have worked in the world of soap operas for years, we each hail from Wisconsin, and we are all proudly-out parts of the LGBT community

Catching up with Thom and slowing him down enough for an interview may seem tough (you will see he is one busy guy), but Thom was right on top of this interview, and we appreciate his time with lgbtSr.
