For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Notre Dame held a press conference yesterday discussing the scandal surrounding Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend Lennay Kekua. In the press conference they stood by Manti saying that he was a victim of a hoax. Manti claims that 2 months after Lennay's alleged death he received a phone call from her number and heard her voice tell him that she was not dead. Watch the 2 minute press conference below:
Now Reagan Mauia, a fullback on the Arizona Cardinals, says Lennay is real, because he met her before. This story gets stranger and stranger!

“This was before her and Manti,” Mauia said Wednesday evening. “I don’t think Manti was even in the picture, but she and I became good friends. We would talk off and on, just checking up on each other kind of thing. I am close to her family. When she was going through the loss of her father, I was — I offered a comforting shoulder and just someone to bounce her emotions off. That was just from meeting her in Samoa.”
Mauia said Tuiasosopo — whom Mauia believes is Kekua’s cousin — introduced the two. After the initial meeting, Mauia said he met her at an “after-party” for all of the athletes involved in the camp.
“She was tall,” he said. “Volleyball-type of physique. She was athletic, tall, beautiful. Long hair. Polynesian. She looked like a model … ”
He said it is his understanding that Kekua’s mother is operating her Twitter account. He said he’d never met her mother. When told by a reporter that she apparently might not have existed, Mauia said “No, she is real.”
So yet again we have conflicting stories. First he says he met her, then he gets found out and says he never met the girl. Then someone says the girl really did exist and died. But Manti says she called him and said she didn't die. But that leaves a few questions. If Lennay DID die and Manti was her boyfriend, how come he did not attend her funeral? Did he never visit her on her death bed? He just let the love of his life die? What's up with Manti telling people that he met the girl and they exchanged numbers? I truly believe he made the entire sob story up and it backfired when Deadspin.com decided to dig into his past. Now he's telling more lies to cover it all up. I guess maybe he thought the sob stories would help him win a Heisman but it didn't. What a sick joke.
