But Ronaiah Tuiasosopo? The man who has admitted to being behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax that rocked a school and a country?
In a preview of the interview that will run later this week, Dr. Phil appeared this morning on The Today Show and said of Ronaiah:
"Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love," he says, adding of the taped Q&A: "I ask him straight up... was this a romantic relationship with you? And he says, 'Yes.'"
So Phil followed up: "I said, are you then, therefore, gay? And he says, 'Well, when you put it that way, yes.'"
But the psychologist said Tuiasosopo then "caught himself" and clarified: "I am confused."
That much is certain. Phil says the 22-year old admitted to running the scheme, accepting responsibility but also saying a handful of life experiences have "damaged" him across the board.
That much, sadly, is also certain.
