Dr. Phil to interview alleged girlfriend hoaxer
Friday - 1/25/2013, 7:02pm EST
NEW YORK (AP) - Dr. Phil McGraw has booked the first on-camera interview with the man who allegedly concocted the girlfriend hoax that ensnared Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o.
A "Dr. Phil Show" spokesperson confirmed on Friday the interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo (roh-NY-ah too-ee-AH'-so-SO'-poh), the man accused of creating an online persona of a nonexistent woman who Te'o said he fell for without ever meeting face-to-face.
The ruse was uncovered last week by Deadspin.com, which reported that Tuiasosopo created the woman, named Lennay Kekua, who then supposedly died last September.
No further details of the "Dr. Phil" interview, including its airdate, were announced.
This interview follows the first on-camera interview with Te'o conducted this week by Katie Couric.
