Y&R Scoop: Nikki snipes at Diane

At Crimson Lights. Esther Valentine (Kate Linder) will congratulate Diane on her promotion. Then Nikki will walk in and Diane will ask how she is. “You know exactly how I am Diane, so there’s no need for you to pretend that Jack didn’t tell you everything,” Nikki will reply. “You may know the truth but it’s still none of your business.” Diane will admit that Jack told her that he’s helping her through this rough time. “And when you love someone like Jack, you take the good with the past.”

But Nikki will ask even if that someone from the past is his ex-wife. “Well thank you for your sacrifice Diane, I’m grateful to have Jack by my side.” Diane will say things don’t need to be contentious between them. “If you’re struggling with your sobriety again, I’m sorry,” she’ll say. “And if you need someone in your corner, there’s no one better than Jack.” But she’ll also say she doesn’t imagine Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will like it very much. “You’re planning on holding that over my head aren’t you?” Nikki will reply.

Finally, Diane will tell Nikki she won’t betray her trust. She’ll explain that she and Jack are partners in everything, including work. Nikki will ask what she means and Diane will tell her Jack named her co-CEO of Jabot. “Very impressive Diane,” Nikki will reply. “Some might even say you didn’t waste any time.” But is Nikki right – has this been Diane’s plan all along?
