Dr. Phil has the first interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who tricked Manti Te’o into thinking he was a she. Why did Ronaiah Tuiasosopo become Manti Te’o's girlfriend? Only he knows for sure but it sounds like he was romantically in love with Manti Te’o.
So, is Ronaiah Tuiasosopo gay?
It sounds like he is gay. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But, then again, he doesn’t sound too sure.
Here is what Dr. Phil has to say: “Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love. 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.’”
I don’t know many straight guys who have to “catch himself” when asked the gay question.
I’ll be tuned into Dr. Phil for the interview. Will you?
