The Southern California woman whose photos were apparently used in an elaborate hoax involving Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o called the ruse "a very twisted and confusing scenario."
Diane O'Meara, who works in marketing at STN Media group in Torrance, spoke to NBC's "Today" about the incident in a segment that aired Tuesday.
"My name is not Lennay Kekua," O'Meara said. "My name's Diane."
O'Meara, 23, was not named in the Deadspin.com report that revealed the hoax last week. According to the report, a Palmdale man identified as Ronaiah Tuiasosopo allegedly was involved in creating a Twitter account for a "Lennay Kekua" and connecting her with Te'o.
