Manti Te’o Hoaxer to Dr. Phil: I’m Gay but I’m “Recovering”

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo compares his experience to that of a recovering drug addict

Dr. Phil was the first to land an interview with the Manti Te’o hoaxer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who practically made the Notre Dame star fall in love with a woman he never met and who did not even exist – and then mourn her after she “died.”

Another preview video has been released from the interview and, as usual, you can see it below, embedded at the end of this blog post.

Ronaiah admitted he fell in love with Manti while posing as a woman online, and even said he was gay before he caught himself and said only that he was “confused.”

In this new video, he tries to explain how, while his feelings for Te’o were real, he isn’t really gay because he’s “recovering.” In other words, he’s definitely straight but he did fall in love with a man.

There is something twisted about the way he tries to reason and explain his actions, of deceiving a man for so long and emotionally manipulating him.
