Bette Davis' daughter, B.D. Hyman released a memoir, My Mother’s Keeper in 1985. During that time, her mother still lived and was very much loved by her fans. Barbara insists that the actress was ignoring her letters so, she brought the grievances to the public.
When the book released, Bette's health was rapidly deteriorating. She had suffered a stroke, a mastectomy and a broken hip. B.D penned that her mum verbally abused her, was an alcoholic, acted possessively and faked her own suicide in order to bag sympathy. Many deemed Barbara as an opportunist who hammered the last nail in her mother’s coffin.
