@r7, From a mysterious head injury he received two weeks prior...

"In August 1943, he collapsed while walking along a Hollywood street, and died two days later. It was rumored that he was drunk. An autopsy revealed that his fall had been caused by a skull fracture which had occurred about two weeks earlier. Davis testified before an inquest that she knew of no event that might have caused the injury, and a finding of "accidental death" was reached"

Sure, Bette 🙄

Bette Davis was barely over 5 feet tall, her husband was a big strapping lug of a man. If she'd pushed him he wouldn't have budged. He was an alcoholic who had a history of falls.

There was video of B.D. and one of her sons when he was younger. I can't seem to find it. He was gayer than Liberace but I'm sure he received the proper Christian conversion therapy and became a "straight" man of God to appease MOTHER. By the way, I had how B.D. says "mother". so much hatred and contempt for a woman who did everything for her.

BD and her useless husband were a couple of lazy shits who didn't like to work. Bette supported them lock, stock and barrel for 20 years. And she PAID - put the two grandkids in private schools, kept BD and her husband in a nice house and a nice upper middle class lifestyle. Bette often took on a shit project just to get money to spend on BD. BD was shameless. Bette also supported her mother and sister for their entire lives. Bette could've been a well-off woman but was constantly financially strapped from supporting her entire family.

Poor Bette, she tried so hard to be something really grand, like a demon...

but most days she was just a tiny, bitter old woman with a low-bosom, a raging ego, and absolutely no fashion sense.

And poor B.D., growing up with Bette's abuse and delusions...who can really blame the innocent child.

As a wise man once said, "The little cunt doesn't fall far from the smell old vag."

Just a grifter. Mom was too permissive and allowed her teen daughter to date and then marry a 30 year old man. The accusations of abuse came after the success of Mommie Dearest.$$$$$$

My sincere condolences to you on the most recent and public estrangement with your daughter B.D.

As a mother, I know how trying these sorts of family disagreements can be.

I hope you are able to find some solace in your relationship with your adorable retarded daughter Margot - I always found her to be the most like you anyway. And of course you still have your booze and cigarettes - they've always been such a constant comfort to you.

Baskets of blessings from your longtime friend,

by Anonymousreply 43June 15, 2022 12:26 AM

I remember reading a book by a woman who started as a longtime fan and became a friend of Bette's.

During a New York hotel strike in the late 1970s, Bette moved into this women's upscale suburban family home, where Bette proceeded to take over the house and create chaos for an extended stay.

Bette lounged around all day drinking and smoking in her sheer bedclothes in front of the woman's children, while she had marathon long-distance phone calls, in which she would often be arguing or screaming profanity.

Bette ran up astronomical bills with the liquor store and grocery, not to mention the telephone bills.

Bette caused a lot of damage to the woman's home furnishings with her cigarettes and even set fire to some curtains at one point.

One day the woman brought her children home from school to have a drunken Bette deliver this message - "Your daughter's orthodontist called and said she had an appointment tomorrow at 10. Then they called back and said it was actually on Thursday at 11. I told 'em to make up their goddamned minds!"

Bette was a strong woman from a time when that was demonized. Maybe she was a cunt at times, but who wouldn't be when you make these studios millions of dollars and in the end get treated like a disposable piece of shit. B.D. is just a stupid, fat, delusional cunt who in the end, became everything her mother fought against. Fuck her in her fat stupid cunt.

r53 I've always said you have to cut the women from Bette's era a lot of slack. Bette, Joan, Marlene, Stanwyck, Lucy and others.

We cannot even imagine the shit they had to go through as intelligent, opinionated women in a time when that wasn't fashionable at all. And the studio heads and executives in that era were absolute PIGS - the Warners, Louis B. Mayer, Zanuck and others. Add to that the normal pressures of being a Hollywood actress and it's no wonder Davis and co. all went rather nuts as they aged. Chain-smoking, alcoholic, bitter and cynical bitches. But when you think about the era they lived in and everything they had to deal with as women, there really couldn't have been any other way for them to turn out.

No one saw BD abused although her mother was acknowledged to be difficult, argumentative and bitchy. There were people who saw Joan Crawford abuse her eldest children. The eldest were seen with bruised faces and bodies, etc. But in those days child abuse didn't exist and her violence was not considered remarkable.

Bette's own mother was her unwavering supporter whose lifelong support gave Bette the strength she needed to pursue that career. She may have tried to replicate that relationship with BD but was too preoccupied with her career to do this successfully. BD did marry a man twice her age at 16 with her Mothers blessing.

[quote]Her other son was set free from the spirit of rebellion.

[quote]And after eight years of intercessory prayer, her father was delivered from a cult in which he was an elder.

BD's book is ridiculous. She has the uncanny ability to remember entire conversations that happened when she was a child. No way that can be accurate. There's nothing shocking or scandalous in the book. The "conflict" between Bette and BD was not much, just the usual arguments that any normal family goes through.

BD never once mentions in the book that she and her useless layabout husband were supported lock, stock and barrel by Bette for 20 years. Bette spent a small fortune on them.
