Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Performs Lennay Kekua Voice, Apologizes for Hoax

by at . Comments

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is very sorry - and, apparently, very skilled at sounding like a woman over the phone.

The young, troubled man behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax appeared yesterday on Dr. Phil and, after insisting he stand behind a curtain for a sense of privacy, performed for viewers the voice he used as Lenny Kekua in this drawn-out scheme to fool the linebacker.

Experts on the show said the voices were a match. Watch/listen now:

Tuiasosopo also said he "hurts every day" for the choices he made and added:

"I can't express how sorry I am towards Manti and his family and everyone affected by this.

"I came here to own up to my involvement in what I've done. I am not seeking everyone's forgiveness... I stand with courage to say I'm very sorry."
