R.I.P. - JEANNE COOPER: Longtime Soap Opera Star JEANNE COOPER, one of the true queens of daytime TV drama, has passed away. The actress, who starred for 40 years as Katherine Chancellor on "The Young and the Restless," died in her sleep Wednesday morning.
Cooper’s son, actor CORBIN BERNSEN, announced the news on his Facebook page. "My mother passed away this morning just a short time ago, peaceful with my sister by her side, in her sleep," Bernsen wrote. She had been ill for the past month from an undisclosed illness.
Cooper joined "The Young and the Restless" in the fall of 1973, six months after it joined the CBS daytime lineup. Nominated 11 times for an Emmy, she finally brought home a statuette in 2008.

CELEBRITY COURT - ROBERT KARDASHIAN HIRES ONE OF O.J.’S LAWYERS: ROBERT KARDASHIAN pleaded not guilty to battery and theft Wednesday in his case against a photographer who tried to take a shirtless picture of him.

The paparazzo claims Rob attacked her when she went to snap the photo, and then took the memory card from her camera. Rob faces trial for petty theft and misdemeanor battery for the March incident, though as TMZ points out, Shapiro is famous for striking plea deals.
