Dr. Phil to interview Te'o hoaxer
By ESPN.com staff
NEW YORK -- 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 Friday the interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man accused of creating an online persona of a nonexistent woman whom Te'o said he fell for without ever meeting face-to-face.
