HOLLYWOOD, Ca. (www.incnow.tv) --- In an all-media exclusive interview airing on Thursday, January 31st and Friday, February 1st at 4 p.m. on WISE-TV NBC33, Ronaiah Suiasosopo talks about his role in the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.

Dr. Phil peels away the many layers of events that took place, to determine what ultimately led to Ronaiah Tuiasosopo perpetuating an ongoing hoax against Notre Dame football star and Heisman Trophy runner-up, Manti Te’o.

Dr. Phil asks Tuiasosopo the questions that have stumped the nation, revealing the truth in detail, and gets answers to questions such as: Why did he take on another persona, and why a female personality? Was Manti in on the hoax? Did Manti know he was in a relationship with a man? And, was Ronaiah's family aware of what their son
was doing?

“We’ve heard Manti speak, but we still don’t know the whole story,” says Dr. Phil McGraw. “America wants to know what kind of person does something like this, and why. This interview will answer those questions and so much more.”

The syndicated series, DR. PHIL, was created by Harpo Productions, and is produced by Peteski Productions in association with CBS Television Distribution.
