HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) – Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée is set to appear on Dr. Phil’s daytime talk show next week and discuss the former NFL star’s suicide.

The show says Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez “sets the record straight about her fiancée’s mysterious jail cell death, rumors about his purported secret romantic life, and if she thinks he killed himself so that she could collect millions of dollars” in the exclusive interview.

The former New England Patriots star was found dead in his cell on April 19, just days after a jury found him not guilty in a South Boston double murder. His death was ruled to be a suicide.

Jenkins-Hernandez tells Dr. Phil that “our last talk had nothing to do with suicidal thoughts.”

The news of his death came as a shock, she says.

“I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me,” Jenkins-Hernandez said about receiving a phone call that he was dead. “I felt like we were looking so bright. We were going up a ladder to a positive direction.”

The interview will air on WBZ-TV on Monday and Tuesday at 3 p.m.

  1. Is she trying to defend that murdering MF POS?

  2. ‘Dr.’ Phil would have been a very successful used-car salesman, a televangelist, a TV adman, or a lawyer/politician!

  3. angiemn3 says:

    Let us not forget that he planned and murdered a man that he knew well to cover up his involvement in another murder. He deserved the death penalty……

  4. How are we suppose to empathize with a murderer? Dr. Phil, are you that desperate for ratings?

  5. So she’s probably looking for some free money. Remember lady he was sucking c*ck in prison with his gay lover. It’s a good day to know that the MF’er is dead.

  6. Leo Rodolfo says:

    He can roast in hell. Screwed my fantasy team out of a title years ago. lol

  7. Kurt Frommd says:

    Who cares? The guy was a murderer and only good things happened to him in jail.

  8. Kevin Cowart says:

    Injury report: Aaron Hernandez out indefinitely with neck injury.
