Manti Te'o Hoaxer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Is Gay . . . And / Or "Confused"
DR. PHIL'S two-part interview with MANTI TE'O hoaxer RONAIAH TUIASOSOPO begins airing TODAY . . . but a preview aired on the "Today" show yesterday.
--In it, Dr. Phil confirms Ronaiah's motive: He fell in love with Manti.
--The Good Doctor says, quote, "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.'"
--It's unclear what he means by that. Is Ronaiah gun-shy about embracing his sexuality . . . is he unsure what his sexuality is . . . or is he gay AND confused?
--Dr. Phil also reveals that Ronaiah told him Manti was, quote, "absolutely, unequivocally" NOT involved in carrying out the hoax.

--Another source adds, quote, "Katy had her arms around Dominic, and they were facing each other, bodies touching. He had his eyes on her all night. Katy loved all the attention."
--Meanwhile, John was spotted at the Village Hotel with ALLISON WILLIAMS, a.k.a. the hot chick on "Girls". They attended a party at the hotel, then went to dinner, before returning to the hotel.
--They weren't seen again until the next morning, when they left . . . separately.
--But this one could very likely be innocent. John is good friends with Allison's BOYFRIEND . . . CollegeHumor.com founder Ricky Van Veen.
