Mark Oppenheimer was surprised to find how the scandal impacted those involved, almost 60 years later.
The cable channel Lifetime just launched an ambitious new reality TV show. “The Week the Women Went” is a five-part series focusing on the small South Carolina town of Yemassee, where all the women from ages 18 to 82 were recently whisked off to Florida for a week-long retreat.
The show follows the women as they relax in Florida, and also the men and children left behind in South Carolina.
Billed as a social experiment of biblical proportions, we watch the men struggle with juggling business, family and planning a beauty pageant. “The Week the Women Went” airs on Lifetime on Tuesday nights.
