that whole part of this thing makes like less than zero sense, the motive on Ronaiah's end
only thing that makes sense is that they scammed him out of money that he "didn't" receive from ND or boosters.

MANTI TE'O: Shiloah, my first cousin. I asked him do you know this girl Lennay? And he said, "Yeah, I know this girl Lennay." And I said, "Is she real?" And he said, "Oh, yeah, she's real, bro, she's real."

JEREMY SCHAAP: He knew her?

MANTI TE'O: I guess he was in the same situation that I was in. He just didn't talk to her.

JEREMY SCHAAP: He was duped, as well?

MANTI TE'O: I talked to a former Oregon State quarterback who used to talk to her, as well. Who used to talk to her, as well.

JEREMY SCHAAP: Who was that.?

MANTI TE'O: Lyle Moevao. I asked him, and I still have the messages from him. "Hey, do you know who this Lennay girl is." He said "Yeah. I know her." He was like: "What's up?" I said, "We're just talking." He said, "I know her. She's real, bro. She's kind of weird. But she's real."
LOL awesome.

Lennay gets around.

Add in the Arizona fullback meeting her in person.

MANTI TE'O: Yeah, a few days later, I asked my dad if I could go sleep over at one of my friend's houses and that while I'm sleeping over, I'm going to go try and meet up with Lennay. I go to my friend's house, which was about 15, 20 minutes from where she was at. It was close, but I didn't have a car, and she did. But she said that her brothers were using it and she couldn't get there. So we ended up not meeting. So when I got home, Dad asked, "Hey, did you get to see her?" And, to avoid all the questions, I just said "Yeah, Dad, I saw her."

JEREMY SCHAAP: Do you think he would have been suspicious?

MANTI TE'O: I wasn't thinking as far as suspicion, I was thinking my dad would say, oh, operation shutdown.

JEREMY SCHAAP: What do you mean?

MANTI TE'O: He would just probably have said I don't support this relationship, and that's a risk that I wasn't willing to take at that time.

JEREMY SCHAAP: Because you sought his approval?

MANTI TE'O: Uh-huh.

JEREMY SCHAAP: And you wouldn't have continued the relationship if he had said that he didn't like the way she was treating you?

MANTI TE'O: No, I just knew that Dad would say -- probably, yeah. I knew that Dad would probably be suspicious of it. And by him being suspicious of it, I didn't want to risk the chance of me telling Dad that I didn't meet her. His suspicion turned into him saying; OK, I would recommend you, you know, back away.

JEREMY SCHAAP: How often did your parents think that you guys had met?

MANTI TE'O: I think just that once.

JEREMY SCHAAP: Just that once?

MANTI TE'O: Yeah, that's the only time they asked me.
had to lie about meeting her bc otherwise Dad would doubt her realness, confirming the fact that she wasn't real

seems legit

also like how he starts the answer with "no, blah blah" then "wait, yes blah blah". a good example of why this had to be off camera, stuff like that probably would have looked awful.

Well thank the Mormon God he didn't say yada yada yada, cause then we'd have to figure out how he had sex with an imaginary person

So Dec. 6 happened. I'm lying in my bed, getting ready to go to sleep, and I get a phone call from Lennay's phone. Answered the phone and said hello. She said, "Hey, man."

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

no joke

if i was Manti's firm right now, I would hire an actress who looks like Lennay and produce a video that bolsters the narrative that she faked her death to dodge drug smugglers

then I would have Manti continue on this path of talking half truths

what he's doing right now, he will eventually get cornered, and there will be some concrete consensus as to what really happened. You dont want that, you have to perpetuate confusion and sympathy. it's the only way for him to come out looking good

The odds that they would unknowingly hire a porn actress are through the roof

Just embrace it all. If a player in the XFL can have "He Hate Me" on his jersey I don't see why T'e"o can't have "Hey Man" on his

The love of your life "dies" and then resurfaces with a "Hey man." Unbelievably funny, I'm dying here, well not really dying, wait what does that mean again

Have you read how many people has supposedly said they believed Lennay to be real?

Doesn't Ronaiah live in Southern Cal? He went to Miami with the catfish crew to keep up the jig? WTF

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Okay, so is he eventually going to try to hook up with "Kekua" the unnamed girl on the phone then? Maui'a was all about it, but if she lied about being Mormon then she's probably out of the question.

I'd go for the girl whose pictures they stole personally. Really, they should just get everyone together on Maury or Springer and talk things out

Maury discovers that Lennay is completely real and did in fact fake her own death to avoid drug dealers, Manti does this

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

MANTI TE'O: They just knew her as my girlfriend the first connection that my family had with her, like I said, going back to the spiritual thing, Lennay and I started a thing called SOAP, which stood for scripture, observation, application and prayer. So she would pick out a picture one day, and we'd talk about our observations of it, and how it could apply to our lives, and then we'd say a prayer on helping us apply that scripture and what it's teaching us for our lives, and we'd do that every day.

JEREMY SCHAAP: Every day?

MANTI TE'O: Every day. She would send me a scripture, and we'd do the same thing. And I'd send her a scripture the next day. It was funny because a couple days later, my dad would say to me, what do you think of saying this with the old man, and share spiritual shots and I would say, "Hey, Dad, guess what? Lennay and I are doing something similar called SOAP." And he was like, "Can I join in?" And I said sure. So my dad joins in, and so so does my mom and my sister. So we have this big group going on. This big SOAP group, sending scriptures to each other … observations. I still have them on my phone.
Commitment to the troll game


Quote:
MANTI TE'O: Yep. She's still fighting leukemia. I have my own stuff for leukemia. … You talk about red flags, it kind of just went off when I was with my best friend, Carlo. His mom is a cancer survivor. So I told his mom about my girlfriend. I said, "My girlfriend's going through cancer," and she said, "If she ever wants to talk, have her call me." I said, "She's on the phone right now." And she said, "Well, let me talk to her." So I gave her the phone. And the conversation was all cancer lingo. They were talking about this, and talking about.

JEREMY SCHAAP: So Lennay knew the right things to say?

MANTI TE'O: The right things to say about cancer. Talking about semesters, trimesters, stuff like that I don't know. Only they would know.
Can't stop reading, ****ing psychopath

Quote:
MANTI TE'O: My dad didn't really communicate with Lennay at all. My mother kind of more so did. Lennay supposedly, I told you she wasn't Mormon, but she expressed that she wanted to become Mormon, and my mom, being a convert to the church, to the LDS church, I told Lennay, "Well, my mom's a convert to LDS church." "So," I said, "if you have any questions, ask Mom. She can tell you her experience." So she did. My mom had lengthy conversations with her about her experiences about being a convert and what she thought and shared with Lennay things to look for and things that she should do.

So assuming Te'o was duped the whole time that means Ronaiah is homosexual, probably closeted IRL.

Also not a chance any of them were in Miami during BCS championship game. They sent generic pictures of the hotel and hotel lobby.

He was probably talking to Ronaiah 99% of the time via text and Facebook chat and probably rarely had phone interactions during the relationship. When he did have phone interactions it was probably the cousin. FFS Te'o isn't really even able to tell if it's Lennay's voice on the phone when she calls returned from the grave. Impossible if you talked to her every day, even for just 20 mins, for 6 months straight.
