TCM

It's a question we ask every year during award season; why aren't more women nominated for Best Director? Today we're shing the Equality Spotlight on the top female filmmakers...


Women Make Film on TCM

Think there aren't many females sitting in director's chairs? Think again!

The new documentary; Women Make Film, takes us around the world to introduce us to the leading ladies of the movie industry.

The 14-hour documentary has now inspired a 4-month long film festival on the cable channel TCM.

Each Tuesday from September through December, TCM will show one part of the documentary, followed by an evening of female-made films.

Oscar winners Jane Fonda and Tilda Swinton narrate the event along with Debra Winger, Thandie Newton and others.

Among the films airing on TCM; The Hurt Locker from director Kathryn Bigelow. To this day, Bigelow is the only woman to ever win the Oscar for Best Director. Proving that the journey towards equality is far from over.

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.
