Te'o prankster takes the Hollywood way out
Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is the jerky boy who catfished over-rated, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, for like 18 months. Ronaiah went on Dr. Phil's new show called, My Trainwrecked Life to blame the prank on his having been molested as a child.
If you're scratching your head and thinking what could one possibly have to do with the other, don't feel like the Lone Ranger. Everybody is doing the same thing. I'd like to see the peer-reviewed journal article in which pranks are linked to child molestation. But that's the Hollywood go-to excuse for bad behavior isn't it? "I was molested as a child."
I'd have a tad more respect for Ronaiah if he had just said, "Hey Dr. Phil, I'm an asshole."
