Because, after all, looking like a helpless, pathetic victim is better than being an *** Tuiasosopo says he was molested The man who says he tricked Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o into falling for a fake woman he had created online says the hoax had ''everything to do'' with escaping from real life because he had been molested as a child. Ronaiah Tuiasosopo spoke publicly for the first time in an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw for the ''Dr. Phil Show,'' the second part of which aired Friday. The 22-year-old Tuiasosopo told McGraw he was repeatedly molested by a family friend beginning at age of 12. Tuiasosopo did not identify his alleged attacker by name and did not say whether he had told police about his claim. He says creating the fictional persona Lennay Kekua allowed him to live in an alternate reality, and also validated for him that he was a good person on the inside. Tuiasosopo also apologized to Te'o during a portion of the interview broadcast Friday.

Dr. Phil says the man behind Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend Lennay Kekua, Roniah Tuiasosopo, told him he was "deeply, romantically in love" with Te'o and claims that the voice talking back to Te'o for countless hours on the phone was not his cousin, as reported by the New York Post, but him.

How We Know Fake is the New Real By Marta H. Mossburg Monday, January 28, 2013 It's passed the deadline, but Time magazine should have made Manti Te'o the man of the year. In case you have been living in a hole the past week, Te'o is the star Notre Dame linebacker whose heartbreaking story of his grandmother and girlfriend dying within hours of each other in September made national headlines. As it turns out, the girlfriend was not real, nor was her death. Te'o, a Heisman finalist, only knew "Lennay Kekua" online and through phone calls. Multiple media outlets amplified Te'o's wrenching story without checking her validity until Deadspin.com broke the story of her non-existence last week. The story is tantalizing for its embarrassing revelations about a revered college football player, but most importantly it encapsulates how fake is the new real in American life. Like Te'o, millions of Americans spend hours online each day communicating with "friends" they never meet, investing months and sometimes years ...

Voice Of Te'o Prankster? Couric Plays Voicemails by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) — The person Manti Te'o says was pretending to be his online girlfriend told the Notre Dame linebacker "I love you" in voicemails that were played during his interview with Katie Couric. Taped earlier this week and broadcast Thursday, the hour-long talk show featured three voicemails that Te'o claims were left for him last year. Te'o said they were from the person he believed to be Lennay Kekua, a woman he had fallen for online but never met face-to-face. After the first message was played, Te'o said: "It sounds like a girl, doesn't it?" "It does," Couric responded. The interview was the All-American's first on camera since his tale of inspired play after the deaths of his grandmother and girlfriend on the same day in September unraveled as a bizarre hoax in an expose by Deadspin.com on Jan. 16. Te'o's parents appeared with him for part of the interview and backed up his claim that he wasn't involved in the fabricatio ...

The revelation that Te’o’s fake girlfriend was actually Ronaiah Tuiasosopo posing as Lennay Kekua was shocking, but hearing Tuiasosopo's voice on several voicemails that aired during Te’o's interview with Katie Couric on Thursday just puts this story over the top. … Continue reading →

His grief at her "death" became a major story during the college football season. The problem was Kekua was a hoax - there was no such person. Now some people are questioning whether or not he played a part in the scam. Do you think the football player was the victim of a harsh prank? Do you think these "fictitious" online relationships are becoming a cruel trend?

Obama in on Manti hoax...Here's why.. 1)They both went to the same HS (Punahou), 2)Obama lives in Chicago (South Bend is in the general area), 3)His daughters' name is Malia (as with Manti, starts with an 'M' and same amount of letters), 4)Lennay Kekua (same syllables as Bar-rack O-ba-ma)...all so he can take our guns away! ;) Note to Secret Service: I'm being facetious. Just a coincidence if true. Please don't poison my beer tonight.

Wow.ESPN's Bob Holtzman is reporting that a former teammate of Manti Te'o told him in an interview that most of the players knew that Lennay Kekua wasn't really Te'o's girlfriend but that it was a good story and Te'o played along because he likes getting all the attention. This situation is getting worse and worse for you, Manti, and eventually some Sherlock Holmes out there is gonna pop the top off of this Samoan love conundrum.

here it is this is simply amazing! Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax Timothy Burke and Jack Dickey Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, the stories said, played this season under a terrible burden. A Mormon linebacker who led his Catholic school's football program back to glory, Te'o was whipsawed between personal tragedies along the way. In the span of six hours in September, as Sports Illustrated told it, Te'o learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua. Kekua, 22 years old, had been in a serious car accident in California, and then had been diagnosed with leukemia. SI's Pete Thamel described how Te'o would phone her in her hospital room and stay on the line with her as he slept through the night. "Her relatives told him that at her lowest points, as she fought to emerge from a coma, her breathing rate would increase at the sound of his voice," Thamel w ...
The bombshell exposed Wednesday by Deadspin reporters rocked the sporting world with revelations of an elaborate hoax involving Notre Dame star linebacker Manti Te'o and the tragic passing of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua. As Deadspin revealed, she never existed.
Any and all rumors that Troy Polamalu knew or met or talked to 'Lennay Kekua' in any way are completely false. I don't know what Reagan Maui'a thinks he's doing by wading into this Te'o thing, but he's since clarified his statements that brought Troy's name into the picture.
I sat down with South Bend Tribune sports writer Eric Hansen who says he still has the recorded interview with Te'o's father -- saying Manti and Lennay Kekua met at Stanford in 2009 and saw each other in person after that...even though Notre Dame says the two never met in person. I'll have the story on that big inconsistency in the hoax tonight at 5 and 6.
I'm sure you've heard all about it if either A) you personally like sports or B) there is a man in your life who watches that stupid "Mike and Mike" show in the morning or that one where Skip Bayless and some noisy black guy with glasses argue for hours when there is clearly no compromise in sight. If you still don't know, here's a summary: "Manti Te’o, a Notre Dame linebacker, is engulfed in the middle of an elaborate hoax, where the ‘love of his life’ Lennay Kekua, who reportedly died of Leukemia in September, doesn’t exist and the woman in the photos has even never met Manti." The media has responded as if THIS IS THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE THING IN THE WORLD. HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED? Manti Te'o was set to win the Heisman Trophy, but his name is moving farther and farther back on the chart. Apparently, we as the public do not like liars. People also want to know why Manti Te'o, a 22-year old with a lot of potential, would participate in this sort of bizarre shenanigan. Did his high sc ...

First of all, though I really don't understand why anyone in their right mind wants to watch grown men riding around on their bikes [and wearing outfits of black and yellow and looking like sad little bumble bees] I shall ignore that and say that the key to figuring out the other earth shattering mystery of who Notre Dame's player, Manti Te'o's fake cyber girlfriend, Lennay Kekua is...plays right into the Gordian Knot of the Lance Armstrong melange. See, I figure any male lame enough to be riding around on a bike, and not doing anything even valuable while doing it like delivering his newspaper route...must have other agendas. I mean really...this is a sport? C'mon, why not bring into the ring other great sports of little boys under teendom, like whiffle ball and perhaps oversized males playing Tiddly Winks, or throwing marbles against the curb...but I digress.

Who is Keyser Soze? Maybe an even better question has emerged...Who is Lennay Kekua?
As Deadspin laid out in brutal detail on Wednesday, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s dead girlfriend is neither dead nor Manti Te’o’s girlfriend nor a corporeal being. Te’o and Lennay Kekua never met on the field at Stanford, never hung out together in Hawaii, and didn’t talk on the phone...
Following the Manti Te'o story? Amazing, huh? Me, I don't believe him - I think he was in on the whole thing. But what about the media that propped this story up? The South Bend Tribune’s has since scrubbed their original report on line: "It never felt like a chance meeting, although it probably appeared that way from the outside looking in. Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te’o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes.They could have just as easily brushed past each other and into separate sunsets. Te’o had plenty to preoccupy himself that November weekend in Palo Alto, Calif., back in 2009. Lennay Kekua was a Stanford student and Cardinal football fan when the two exchanged glances, handshakes and phone numbers that fateful weekend three seasons ago." Scrubbed it? evidence of how pathetic their reporting skills are, now gone from our eyes? Who wrote this? And have they been fired? THIS IS A MADE UP STORY. What on earth were the sources for this writing? . ...
Painfully hard to look at without rose colored glasses - but very hard to understand how Manti Te'o could have been so close to this woman who turns out is a fake, yet never went to her after her car accident, nor to the hospital or her bedside when she had cancer...nor had any references to her at Stanford...wouldnt some signs have appeared? Just seems strange and inconsistent with "True Love" that in the off season he didn't have time to comfort her even once? This woman exists in some form who was so convincing and so real to him, and when the real Lennay Kekua is discovered...she will experience some serious kharma, eh?

It's still early--so I wonder if I can create the first conspiracy theories about Manti Te'o's imaginary girlfriend: First, what is it with birth and death certificates in Hawaii? Second, an imaginary girlfriend inspired him to play his best football of the season and be admired by sports fans all over the country--just think how much better he'd be with a REAL girlfriend. Third, Notre Dame found out about this before the national championship game, but held the information until now. Does this explain why the Notre Dame team looked confused and listless in the game? So maybe this hoax was all created by some cheerleader for the Alabama Crimson Tide!!! What is Lennay Kekua spelled backwards? Yennel Aukek! There are no Google results for that name--has she been scrubbed from their files? And what about that girl from the crowd that Brent Musburger went on and on about being so beautiful?
