Aaron Hernandez’ fiancee Shayanna Jenkins to appear on Dr. Phil to talk about suicide, “I thought it was a hoax.”

by Angela Davis |@jerseygirlsport Aaron Hernandez might be gone, but the ripple effects from his suicide are still being felt. His fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins is set to appear on a two-part episode of the Dr. Phil show to talk about the former New England Patriots receiver's suicide and the ensuing media circus. She says that she had no idea he was even hinking about suicide.

I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me.” Jenkins-Hernandez told Dr. Phil.

Jenkins-Hernandez said her last conversation with Hernandez “had nothing to do with suicidal thoughts.” Hernandez had just been acquitted on a double murder charge, and was appealing his murder conviction for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.

“I felt like we were looking so bright. We were going up a ladder to a positive direction,” Jenkins-Hernandez said.

Shayanna will no doubt make for great television, but given the nature of this on-going investigation surrounding his suicide, I think she should push pause on the daytime talk shows. There will be interest in her story, and knowing how things go around high profile people, there's probably a book deal and a movie deal in her future.
