Alleged Hoaxer of Manti Te'o to Appear on 'Dr. Phil' AP

The man who allegedly created the fictional girlfriend who caught Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o in a hoax will appear on the "Dr. Phil Show," reports the Associated Press.

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, who is accused of creating an online persona for the fictional girlfriend, will appear on the show, although no airdate was announced.

The announcement follows last week's on-camera interview with Te'o on Katie Couric's talk show. Te'o said he fell for the fictional woman even though he never met her in person.
