Ronaiah Tuiasosopo — the man behind the madness surrounding Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o — has finally come out of hiding! According to TMZ, Ronaiah was seen leaving his family’s home in Palmdale, Ca on Saturday evening.

Ronaiah was rocking a hoodie in an attempt to conceal his identity, but was quickly identified. Ronaiah had nothing to say when asked about his role in the hoax.

Just 24 hours before Ronaiah appeared in public, Manti had told ESPN … Ronaiah had reached out to him — confessed to the prank — and apologized.

According to Manti, Ronaiah was the person who created “Lennay Kekua” — who Manti believed was a real person … and “dated” … even though they never met in person.

Of course, the whole thing was a hoax — Lennay never really lived … or died from cancer on September 11.

Manti claims he and Ronaiah were simply acquaintances — and insists he was only a victim in the hoax and not a co-conspirator.

If there’s one thing children have over adults, it’s that they genuinely don’t give a sh*t if they look silly or ridiculous. Adults often spend way too much time worrying about what other people think. That carefree nature is what makes them so damn charming. Take this tot, for instance. A 2-year-old dancer named Zaya […]

Guys, We’ll Make It Simple For You: Feminsim Equals Equality

There has almost always been a negative connotation around the words “feminism” and “feminist.” With the prevalence of rape and domestic violence cases, I think it’s important to understand what feminism really is, and why everyone (men AND women) should support the movement. My freshman year of college, I wrote a paper on a piece […]
