(Just when you thought the Manti Te'o story couldn't get any more bizarre, the man accused of hoaxing him tells Dr. Phil that he fell “deeply romantically in love” with the Notre Dame linebacker and was “confused” about his sexuality. Last week, Te'o appeared on the Katie Couric show and proclaimed that he is "far from gay." Abby, from What's Left Over, reacts to Te'o's interview in this thoughtful post.
