For the first time its history, NYC's iconic Central Park will have a statues that feature real-life women.


Commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the Women's Suffrage Movement, Central Park will feature a 14-foot-tall bronze monument with suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In the park's 167-year history, there has never been a statue featuring real life women.

The event will be broadcasted via Monumental Women's social media platforms. The initial goal of the organization was to create the first statue of real women in Central Park, but now the organization is now doing so much more. According to the their website, Monumental Women also aims to:

"Increase awareness and appreciation of Women's History through a nationwide education campaign and challenging municipalities across the country to rethink the past and reshape the future by including tributes in their public spaces to the diverse women who helped create and inspire those cities."

Billie Jean King, a tennis icon and women's equality pioneer, took to Twitter to share a photo of the statue ahead of its unveiling to the public.

Behind the groundbreaking monument is sculpture Meredith Bergmann, who will reveal the piece to the world on August 26th.

Teddi Mellencamp will reportedly not be appearing on upcoming seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Beginning with season 8, Mellencamp has been a regular member of the RHOBH cast. The finale of season 10 recently aired, leaving fans waiting for filming to begin again. According to an exclusive source with Dailymail.com, Mellencamp will not be returning.

The anonymous source, who was listed as a "production insider," told Daily Mail that the RHOBH producers found Teddi Mellencamp to be "boring and stale." They also noted that the other cast members do not particularly like her.

The insider said:

"She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members."

Mellencamp was reportedly almost cut last season but the producers decided to give her a second chance. At this point in time, the decision seems final.

Bravo has yet to comment about the casting decision.
