SAN DIEGO — Manti Te’o isn’t hiding out. He’s just not talking to the media. After being spotted attending a party thrown by the magazine Maxim last week in Hollywood, Te’o was back in San Diego at the Chargers’ second open session of organized team activities on Monday. For the second straight week, the former Notre Dame linebacker was barred from speaking with reporters. Maxim confirmed that Te’o attended a party after the magazine included his fake girlfriend on its list of the world’s 100 hottest women. The Chargers apparently are trying to put the fake girlfriend episode behind by keeping Te’o off-limits to the media until minicamp in mid-June. Te’o's attending the party seemed to refresh in people’s minds how the Heisman Trophy runner-up was caught in an elaborate hoax. The magazine put Te’o's fake girlfriend at No. 69 on its list, running a picture of an “invisible” girl in a bikini superimposed over an ocean scene. Te’o posed with several women at the Maxim party
