Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the hugely successful and creepy Manti Te’o hoax, was just interviewed by Dr. Phil.

When asked if he was gay, Tuisasosopo said “yes,” but quickly said that he was “confused.” Here’s his explanation:

“You’ve heard of recovering drug addicts? It takes a lot of courage to stand and say that,” he said “To recover from homosexuality and this type of thing. Not only that, coming back to your real life, as hard as a task as that is I’m going to do all that I can to live right.”

We didn’t realize that being gay was something that should or could be cured. How can living right mean hiding the fact that you like dick?
