Dr. Phil had this to day:

"Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love. I asked him straight up, 'Was this a romantic relationship with you?' And he says, 'Yes.' I said, 'Are you then therefore gay?' And he said, 'When you put it that way, yes.' And then he caught himself and said, 'I am confused.'"

It's unclear what he means by “confused”. In the interview Dr. Phil confirms Ronaiah's motive: He fell in love with Manti.
