The Wolf Files: John Wayne Bobbitt Remarries

No. 1 FAQ: ‘Does It Still Work?’

Another of Bobbitt's former employers predicts that it's only a matter of time before he's back in trouble again.

"I tried pretty hard to help that guy out, but he really is a stupid, low-life creep," said Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City, Nev., a brothel that employs more than 200 prostitutes.

"I have only pity for Bobbitt's new wife."

Bobbitt had a $50,000-a-year job as a bartender/chauffeur/handyman. Hof said he wasn't particularly good at anything but had some "face value" with his customers.

Members of the staff remember guests frequently asking Bobbitt one question: "Does it still work?"

Apparently, it does. Perhaps too well. The madam regularly warned him to keep his hands off the ladies. "We had an agreement," says Hof. "He wasn't supposed to drink, leave town, or sleep with my girls — and he did all three."

Even Bobbitt's celebrity was a liability. Guests frequently asked to see Bobbitt's penis and Bobbitt became more amenable — after he had enlargement surgery. "I had to tell him, 'Dude, this isn't a petting zoo,'" Hof said.

Still, Hof posted a $10,000 bond in 1998 when Bobbitt was charged in connection with the theft of $150,000 of clothing.

"He is a nice, pleasant person — with absolutely no brain," says Hof. "Even with everything he's gone through, he's still a boring oaf."

Hof eventually decided that Bobbitt was more trouble than he was worth and cut him loose. A Next Chapter?

Bobbitt has spent the last few years drifting between Las Vegas and upstate New York. He pleaded guilty to the theft charge and was also convicted of battering a former girlfriend.

Bobbitt still appears on talk radio, but the paying gigs are few and far between. His former manager, Robert Yates, tricked him into doing another porn movie three years ago, setting up hidden cameras in a Nevada hotel room.

Bobbitt had threatened to sue. But in early 1999, he was in jail again, for shoving his girlfriend into a wall. In need of money, he and Yates cut a deal.
