Back in 1993, Lorena and John Bobbitt made headlines when she infamously cut off his penis after she claimed that he cheated.

The husband remained in the spotlight in the aftermath of the incident and subsequent trial — during which, Lorena was acquitted of all criminal charges, with the jury labeling her temporarily insane — and now, he’s reliving the most traumatic incident of his life for REELZ’s new docu-series Scandal Made Me Famous.
