Lorena Bobbitt, the woman who made headlines after cutting off her husband's penis following years of abuse, is opening up about her "trauma" in a new tell-all film.  

The Lifetime production titled 'I Was Lorena Bobbitt' takes a closer look at the series of events leading up to that day and Bobbitt, who serves as executive producer, admitted to Fox News that it was not easy to see the re-enactment of her turbulent past. 

"It was very [traumatizing]," she said. "When I arrived on the scene, actually I was not able to see the sexual-assault scene because I arrived two days later. They just finished filming it. But there were a lot of emotions. There was a lot of trauma." 

The incident took place on June 23, 1993. Bobbitt claimed she had been physical, sexually and emotionally abused for years when she finally snapped and mutilated her husband, John Wayne Bobbitt.  

She then sped off in a vehicle with the part she sliced off and later discarded in a field. Police were able to retrieve it and rushed off to a hospital with the organ in an icebox. Ten hours later surgeons were able to reattach it.  

The couple was charged in separate trials but both were acquitted. A media frenzy ensued and the story became a sensation, but Bobbitt said the point was missed. 

"For some reason, the media was just infatuated about the cutting. . . instead of what actually is the essence and the core of the story," she told Fox News. "The story was about domestic violence, domestic abuse, sexual assault… the media just missed this window of opportunity to tell [that]." 

Now Bobbitt is hoping to rectify that with the upcoming film.  

"I’m glad I have a platform now. "I have a voice to talk and communicate what really happened and to be transparent, be raw. These are real issues. These are real victims," she said of women suffering domestic abuse. "If my story helps at least one person to escape domestic violence, then my mission is complete. My suffering was not in vain."
