Ronaiah Tuiasosopo
broke down crying to Dr. Phil as he tried to apologize for the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax ... saying he "hurts every day" for the decisions he's made.

Tuiasosopo expressed his regret for the entire ordeal, telling Dr. Phil, "I can't express how sorry I am towards Manti and his family and everyone affected by this."

As for why he came on the show, Tuiasosopo said, "I came here to own up to my involvement in what I've done. I am not seeking everyone's forgiveness ... I stand with courage to say I'm very sorry."

This is one of the drawbacks to the Internet. Some become their alter egos and toy with other people. A sign of the times.

He sure wants this story to be about him. Enough already--this idiot doesn't need any more press coverage.

I feel bad for the guy. He obviously didn't know how to cope with the fact that he's gay. That's the result of queer bashing. Parents need to teach their children that we are all different and not hate on other people.
