'Y&R' Spoilers: Nikki Dead Set on Exposing Diane – Recruits New Ally?

Young And The Restless spoilers know that Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) despises Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Diane has a sordid history with Nikki, including trying to steal her husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). 

But Nikki almost went to prison when Diane was "murdered." It is not surprising that Nikki wants Diane out of Genoa City. Still, Victor's wife is not the only one determined to get rid of her.

Nikki has teamed up with Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) to take Diane down. Phyllis has taken a job at Marchetti, where Diane works. While Phyllis will be working on the inside to sabotage Diane, Nikki will do her part. 

Y&R spoilers for the week of August 15 to 19 reveal Nikki will recruit a new ally. Does Diane have another enemy on Young And The Restless?

Y&R: Nikki Finds a New Ally?

There will be a new face in town in the upcoming week. Young And The Restless spoilers for the week of August 15 to 19 suggest that an investigative reporter, Talia Morgan (Natalie Morales), will come to Genoa City. 

Talia will be in town to do a story on Ashland Locke's (Robert Newman) death. However, Nikki will try to steer her in Diane's direction. Nikki will try to convince Talia that doing an exposé on Diane's return from the dead would be a better story. Will Talia agree?

Further Young And The Restless spoilers for the week divulge that Nikki will work hard to dig up dirt on Diane. Doing so will help her, Phyllis, and Ashley's mission. 

Moreover, it may convince Talia to drop the Ashland story and turn her interest to Diane. If Talia starts investigating Diane, she could find some skeletons. 

There were many years between Diane's faked death and her return to Genoa City. She claims to have led a clean life as Taylor Jensen. Still, Diane is not known for her honesty on Young And The Restless.

Should Diane Worry on Young and the Restless?

Diane returned to Genoa City claiming to be a changed woman. Ms. Jenkins has worked overtime to prove she is reformed. When Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) warned Diane that he would look into her past, she did not seem concerned. 

Diane could be telling the truth about her quiet life in Los Angeles. Or she could have covered her tracks so well that no one could find dirt.

However, Nikki, Phyllis, and Ashley will do whatever they can to bring her down. Now Nikki may have an investigative reporter looking into Diane's past as Taylor Jensen. 

If Diane has any scandals in her past, they will certainly be uncovered. She has made progress in getting close to Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez). Now she is hopeful for a future with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). Will Talia Morgan blow Diane's new life apart on The Young And The Restless?
