A California man said he created the hoax involving former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and a fake girlfriend because he was in love with the football player.

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo spoke publicly for the first time in an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw for the "Dr. Phil Show," the first part of which aired Thursday.

"You've heard of recovering drug addicts? It takes a lot of courage to stand and say that," he said "To recover from homosexuality and this type of thing. Not only that, coming back to your real life, as hard as a task as that is I'm going to do all that I can to live right."

Just remember that homosexuals are stable..........riiiiight.

Anyway how is he "recovering" if he still believes he was "in love"?

Is this guy a sports writer? Rohaiah sounds just like a Tiger Woods fanboy sports writer.

This gets more wierd each day.

Another reason that I don’t give any more of a smelly Obama about athletes than I do about our congresscritters.

The only diff appears to be that the athletes are more talented felons and liars.

The media didn’t spend NEARLY as much electronic ink on the story of Scarlett Johansen believing she was receiving personal texts from candidate Barack Obama.

Most of the homosexuals I meet are a little, or a lot, crazy. Besides the sexual aspect, they have many odd habits and manias.

This is just another example.

Sounds like a typical Notre Dame fan. That place is becoming more of a soap opera with each passing day.

Someone please help me out here: so does this mean the guy fabricated the girl so that he could flirt with the other guy online? I haven’t been following this story.

I dunno about athletes being better or more talented liars than congresscritters. Sen. Robert Menendez seems to be fending off charges that he was making use of underaged prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

But the realities keep intruding on his denials.

Yup. But in that particular case, it’s called “Facebook.”

What’s up with all the syllables? When I was in the Marine Corps, somebody like that would have been called “Alphabet”.
I did know one Samoan. His name was Sgt. Fai. Maybe his mother’s maiden name was Tuiasosopo for all I know.

Before his abysmal performance in the championship game, Te'o was projected to be a top 5 draft choice. After the game, consensus was he had dropped to a late first round pick.

When the fake girlfriend story first broke, there was lots of speculation that he was gay, and that he was in on the hoax, in order to prove that he was straight.

Now, he's probably gonna go in the middle to later SECOND round. There is no way that an NFL teams wastes a first round pick on a presumably gay athlete..the locker room and the media circus would make the season a total zoo.

You can bet than any team considering drafting him, at any spot, has PIs running around South Bend and Hawaii, looking for ANY girl that has had sex with him..

Me too. I believe my wife and kids called this story correctly when it first broke: The kid got "catfished". Plain and simple.

I think a lot of the additional speculation was due to the fact that media types in the 40+ year old category haven't yet caught on to this new phenomenon called catfishing.

The kids got me to watch the movie and a couple episodes of the movie Catfish and it's subsequent tv series. Almost every episode ends up exposing somebody who lies about who they are, what they look like, their gender, etc.

In the end, the kid got embarrassed, hoped for the story to go away quietly, and it blew up in his face. I don't think it makes him any worse of a person.
