Lorena Bobbitt's Put Her Past Behind Her — See Where She Is Today

By Pippa Raga

Even if you don't recognize her name, you're definitely familiar with her crime. Back in 1993, Lorena Bobbitt (née Gallo) used a kitchen knife to slice off her sleeping husband John's, um, member, after the latter allegedly assaulted her sexually. Over two decades later, her story, which became something of a punchline to the male-dominated media of the '90s, is coming to Amazon Prime in the form of a documentary executive produced by Get Out's Jordan Peele. 

The sensational news story turned Lorena's marital nightmare into something of a late-night joke and was widely referenced in popular culture for decades to come — from allusions in Fight Club to lyrics in Eminem's "Evil Twin." But the Amazon Prime docu-series promises to cast Lorena's story in a different light, one that isn't an over-the-top spectacle. "With this project, Lorena has a platform to tell her truth as well as engage in a critical conversation about gender dynamics, abuse, and her demand for justice," Jordan Peele explained in a press release.
