BETTE BROUHAHA

Jeffrey Lane — the creative force behind CBS's troubled Bette — has stepped down as co-executive producer, but will remain on board as one of the show's writers. The New York Daily News reports that the move came as a result of friction between Lane and the show's star, Bette Midler. A network rep, however, says the split was an amicable and mutual one.
