Tired of years of physical and mental abuse, Lorena Bobbitt cut off her husband John’s penis with an 8 inch kitchen knife in 1993. She then fled the house and tossed his member out the window and into a field. Doctors were able to re-attach the dick’s cock when it was recovered. John did some porn and Lorena sort of faded from the spotlight.
Lorena is now living with her partner of 16 years and the two have a 9-year old daughter. Now going by her maiden name of Gallo, Lorena works in real estate, raises money for women’s shelters, and donates time and gifts to families in need.
John is still a heaving piece of shit, having been convicted of assault on a former girlfriend and being accused of domestic violence by one of his two other ex-wives.
Sir Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell, and colleagues were able to clone a sheep from an adult somatic cell pulled from a donor’s mammary gland. This successful 1996 procedure led to much debate concerning the ethics of such a procedure. I’m pretty sure that the only fallout has been from weirdos cloning their deceased pets and the duplication of livestock. And Katy Perry being cloned from Zooey Deschanel.
The cloned sheep, named Dolly after another famous mammary, passed away from lung disease in 2003. Before her death, Dolly gave birth to six lambs and inspired countless scientists to attempt cloning of extinct animals. [Insert Jurassic Park theme here]
Wilmut was knighted in 2008 and wrote a book with Roger Highfield in 2006 titled After Dolly: The Uses and Misuses of Human Cloning. Campbell received the Shaw Prize for Medicine and Life Sciences, along with Wilmut and Shinya Yamanaka, in 2008. Sadly, Campbell passed away in 2012
Rodney King was involved in a police chase in 1991 that ended with him being beaten, tazed, and pummeled by LA police officers. The incident was videotaped and disseminated via news channels, yet the officers were all acquitted of assault with a deadly weapon and use of excessive force. Racial tension was already high and King’s beating lit the fuse on a powder keg of pent-up rage and impotence. The Los Angeles Riots in 1992 was triggered by what was seen as a miscarriage of justice. The riots continued over the span of six days, 53 deaths, thousands of injuries, and over a billion dollars in property damage.
King sued Los Angeles and won $3.8 million dollars. He also appeared on Celebrity Rehab and Sober House after alcohol-related arrests. King was engaged to one of the jurors in his successful suit against LA when he passed away by accidental drowning. His heart condition combined with alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, and PCP found in his system likely led to a heart attack while King was in his pool.
Officers Stacey Koon and Laurence Powell were tried for violating King’s civil rights and sentenced to 30 months in prison. The two also lost their jobs. On an episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, comedian DL Hughley insisted that Koon was now a limo driver in LA. Powell and Koon are frequently mentioned in sweet ass hip hop music as symbols of racism.
British actor Hugh Grant was dating model Liz Hurley and was promoting the terrible flick Nine Months in Los Angeles in 1995. He decided to solicit prostitute Divine Brown and was arrested for lewd conduct in a public place: banging a hooker in his car. Hurley and Grant would continue dating for five more years. Brown took her 15 minutes of fame and ran with it.
Grant is expecting his fourth child (two children each from two different women) and has steadily been making movies since his arrest.
Hurley has a 13-year old son and Grant is the child’s godfather. She has also been acting quite steadily over the years.
Brown has been out of the public eye for a while, but in 2007 she was pursuing a musical career. I don’t think it worked out.
