Dr. Phil phoned in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to discuss his two part sit down interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te’o hoax.
Dr. Phil revealed he approached the two-part interview “with a lot of skepticism” and “took it all with a grain of salt.”
Adding, in the first half of the interview that aired Thursday, he “tried to answer the question of ‘Who does this?’” With the intention of the second part of the interview, airing tonight, to answer the big question—”Is this Ronaiah on the phone? Or is it a female coconspirator?”
While Dr. Phil shares Ronaiah “insists that he’s the person on the voicemail,” he mentions: “By the end of the show…there is a definite answer as to whether it is him on the phone…or whether he has someone working with him and I think people are going to be shocked at what they find out.”
Be sure to tune into the second half of the interview with Ronaiah today, check your local listings here. Also, catch Dr. Phil on Monday, where he’ll be sitting down with Anna Gristina for the second time.
