Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Finally Shows the World His ‘True Talent’

By

The great mystery of whether or not Notre Dame star Manti Te'o was speaking on the phone with an actual woman while long-distance dating the not-real, not-dead Lennay Kekua was solved today by Dr. Phil. Asked to perform the very female-sounding voice heard on leaked messages, admitted hoax mastermind Ronaiah Tuiasosopo ultimately delivered. After a bit of stage fright in the studio, Tuiasosopo went into full Lennay mode from home with a producer watching and was dubbed "a true talent" by a voice analyst.

Via Deadspin, where the fun began:

In the second day of his Dr. Phil tell-all, Tuiasosopo also explained that the creation of the Kekua character had "everything to do" with escaping reality because he was molested repeatedly as a child by a family friend. With a final dark turn (we hope) in this overplayed saga, the "Remember the Manti Te'o hoax?" era starts now.
