Dr. Phil has officially landed the first exclusive interview with alleged fake-girlfriend hoax schemer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. TMZ Sports reported that Dr. Phil and Tuiasosopo sat together for several hours in L.A. on Thursday, where they discussed Manti Te'o's interview with Katie Couric.

TMZ's sources say the interview was "emotional and deep." It's expected to air sometime next week.

Manti Te'o said Tuiasosopo confessed privately to the hoax, but the alleged hoaxer has not addressed the public yet. TMZ also reported that Tuiasosopo had "intense feelings" for Te'o, which he channeled and cultivated through the Lennay Kekua persona.
