Move over, Oprah Winfrey. Dr. Phil has secured the first on-camera interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, according to TMZ. Tuiasosopo is the man allegedly behind the fake girlfriend hoax of Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te'o.
Te'o recently went on Katie Couric's daytime television show to share his story on the bizarre scandal. Now, Tuiasosopo will reportedly share his.
Tuiasosopo sat down with Dr. Phil on Thursday to tape an interview which will air sometime next week during the daytime show. It will mark the first public statment from the suspect since the story broke.
It has been over 10 days since Deadspin first broke the silence on the hoax. New information has slowly been making its way out ever since. However, Tuiasosopo may help fill in the details when he tells his side of things next week.
One can only hope that this will all be settled by then. You know, for sake of curiosity.
