Actress Bette Davis left most of her nearly $1 million estate to her son and a close friend but nothing to her daughters - one of whom wrote about being raised by a "hateful mother." Also left out of the will were Davis' two grandsons. The 10-page will was filed Monday for probate in Manhattan. "I declare that I have intentionally and with full knowledge omitted to provide herein for my daughter, Margot, and my daughter, Barbara, and/or my grandsons, Ashley Hyman and Justin Hyman," Davis said in the will dated Sept. 2, 1987. Davis, who died of cancer at age 81 on Oct. 6, had been estranged from her daughter, Barbara Davis Hyman of Charlottesville, Va., since Hyman's 1985 book, "My Mother's Keeper." Hyman wrote that Davis had been "an abusive, domineering and hateful mother" and "a grotesque alcoholic" largely responsible for her own mistreatment by some of her three husbands.
