Diane and Nikk get physical on Y&R onWednesday

Nikki needs revenge

The Young and the Restless viewers realize that it is only a matter of time before Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) and Diane Jenkins (Cynthia Walters) have a knock-down-drag-out catfight. Tension is building between the two women but in the meantime, someone else will not be able to resist getting her licks in where Diane is concerned. It's only a matter of time before it all hits the fan for Phyllis and Diane and they confront each other. In the meantime, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will have a physical confrontation with the woman she thought she had killed. Spoilers say that on Wednesday Nikki will see Diane at Crimson Lights and won't be able to resist getting in her face. Nikki feels she needs some type of revenge for all the years she believed she had killed Kyle Abbott's (Michael Mealor) mother even though it was in self-defense. The new co-CEO of Newman Enterprises has been basking in the afterglow of her position and conducting herself accordingly. When she spies Diane she will revert to her old nature and pick a public fight. Y&R viewers have been saying that Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) should not have given her mother this position because her resume did not qualify her for the job. Now she is going to act high and mighty with Diane and get slapped in the process.

Diane strikes back

Nikki with her nose in the air will begin hurling insults at her enemy and spoilers say she will call Diane a “professional gold digger” and this will push Diane too far. Diane has been attempting to convince everyone that she is in Genoa City for one purpose which is to reconnect with her son. She will resent the implication that she is chasing after the Abbott fortune. There is a possibility that she might team up with Ashland Locke (Robert Newman ) in an attempt to spend time with Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez). It doesn't hurt that Locke has 250 million Newman dollars. Spoilers say that once Diane slaps Nikki's face, the Newman co-CEO will slap her back. This will cause Victoria to intervene and become stuck in the middle of the physical altercation. Spoilers say the women will begin fighting and Vicki will pull her mom away from Diane before the situation escalates. Nikki will get another jab in by telling Diane to "go back to the grave she crawled out of. Diane is coming across as though she has turned over a new leaf but no one believes her. Phyllis is territorial because of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) but Diane allowed Nikki to believe she was a murderer for a decade and this will never be forgiven.Genoa City residents may push Diane into attack mode.

Nikki needs to get off her high horse

An increasing number of Y&R fans are saying Nikki needs to come down from her Newman high horse. There possibly could be more viewers who are happy that Diane slaps Nikki than those who support Victoria's mom. It's true that what Diane did was shocking and altered many lives. It's equally a fact that Mrs. Newman already confronted her rival once in her hotel room. Diane is not going to be deterred and she has many irons in the fire. She wants a relationship with Kyle and Harrison and is pondering her place in Jack's life. Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) is proving to be a friend and ally and now Ashland is in the picture. It will take more than Nikki's ire or continual drama from Phyllis to run this woman out of town. Neither one will back off so the drama will be continual. Some who watch The Young and the Restless will not care about the Crimson Lights encounter and will continue to be in expectation of what is to come with Phyllis. Others will enjoy Nikki exacting her pound of flesh because they believe she deserves it so stay tuned.. Be on the lookout for spoilers and updates related to what comes next and be sure to tune in on Wednesday.
