Ronaiah Tuiasosopo: I Was In Love With Manti Te’o So I Guess I’m Gay

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the mastermind (if that’s what you want to call it) behind the Manti Te’o dead girlfriend hoax, sat down with Dr. Phil McGraw and explained that he did it all in the name of love. A (questionably?) gay love.

The Today show reports:

“Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love,’’ McGraw told NBC’s Mike Taibbi in a segment that aired on Today Wednesday. “I asked him straight up, ‘Was this a romantic relationship with you?’ And he says yes. I said, ‘Are you then therefore gay?’ And he said, ‘When you put it that way, yes.’ And then he caught himself and said, ‘I am confused.’’’

Aren’t we all? Well, all of us except maybe Manti Te’o. For a change.

McGraw’s two-part interview with Tuiasosopo may shine some light on the case when it airs on Thursday and Friday.
