Days of Our Lives spoilers promise a twist with Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini) and Diana Cooper (Judith Chapman). Given the ties that bind them, the newly-ensconced DA may help her evade justice for poisoning Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall). Since Diana seems to collect dirt on people as her hobby, she may have something to hold over his head. Check out what’s brewing at the NBC soap.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Ted Laurent and Diana Cooper’s Shady Past
On DOOL, Ted Laurent has been Diana Cooper-adjacent since his introduction last year. He first showed up in Salem to rep her little Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) in his fabricated sexual harassment case against Sonny Kirikais (Freddie Smith). Days of Our Lives spoilers hint it could be more than just coincidence that Ted Laurent was working for Leo well before anyone knew of his connection to Diana.
As Ted Laurent is an unscrupulous lawyer, he was the perfect person to help Leo bilk Sonny and Titan Industries for big bucks. And remember, Ted’s past on Days of Our Lives is pretty much a blank slate since he’s a relatively new character. Showrunner Ron Carlivati can knit him a past that overlaps with Diana Cooper quite craftily. Some fans are even speculating Ted might be Leo’s real bi-dad (although another father flip seems extreme).

DOOL Spoilers: Diana Has Dirt That Ted Wants
On this weeks Days of Our Lives, spoilers show Ted Laurent gets a blast from his past when he found Diana Cooper at the Salem PD. Of course, John Black (Drake Hogestyn) expects Ted as Salem’s DA to charge her with attempted murder. But as the Rolling Stones remind us, you can’t always get what you want and John may be disappointed. Because Diana has information Ted needs.
The underlying story since Ted Laurent came to town was this his wife passed away two years ago from cancer. Since then, the lothario lawyer has been chasing Hope Brady’s (Kristian Alfonso) skirt much to Rafe Hernandez’s (Galen Gering) annoyance. But now, it seems that Ted isn’t a widower and didn’t know it. It looks like his wife faked her death and is living the high life in France without him.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Tricky Ted’s Wife Faked Death – But Why?
It’s a pretty extreme step to take to fake your death convincingly, but that’s just what Mrs. Ted Laurent did back in France. Now, we learned from DOOL spoilers that Diana Cooper knew both him and Mrs. L back in the day. Not only that, but she says his wife chilling in the South of France. The lawyer thinks Diana is mistaken and with a subtle smirk, she made it clear that she was not.
So, that sets the stage on Days of Our Lives for Ted Laurent to need info from Diana Cooper on his not-so-dead wife. Leo’s mom desperately needs a get-out-of-jail free card and now it seems she has one. John Black confidently told Marlena that Diana would be going to jail for a long time.
But now, the Ted-Diana connection sparked to life and showed it won’t be that easy to get rid of the awful woman. Watch DOOL on NBC daytime to see where this twisted story goes next. But it’s safe to say that Salem won’t be saying au revoir to Dirty Diana anytime soon.
