Katie Couric sat down with Manti Te’o and he admitted he lied after he found out the whole thing was a hoax. Good Morning America played part of the interview this morning. He said, “Katie, put yourself in my situation. I, my whole world told me that she died on Sept. 12. Everybody knew that. This girl, who I committed myself to, died on Sept. 12…Now I get a phone call on Dec. 6, saying that she’s alive and then I’m going be put on national TV two days later. And to ask me about the same question. You know, what would you do?”
In addition, I guess Manti produced a receipt from the funeral home where he sent flowers to proving he wasn’t in on the hoax.
I think Manti was really naive in the situation with his alleged “girlfriend,” but I don’t think he’s lying now. I want to know the deal with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo! Get him to talk on national TV about this.
This story would be a great movie. It’s like the anti-Rudy of 2013.
Here’s part of the interview they played on GMA this morning:
