HILLS HUNK: The soulful, shaggy-haired heartbreaker known affectionately as Justin “Bobby” Brescia from MTV’s “The Hills” is making his rounds this fashion week. So just how true to life is Bobby’s relationship with Audrina Patridge? And are we getting the full story? “Nothing on that show is real,” said Bobby. “Editing is a powerful tool.”Bobby is in town just hanging out. Maroon 5’s head hairdresser isn’t doing any backstage tresses this week, but is always looking for new, ahem, opportunities. “I get little glances here and there,” Bobby said of his newfound fame. “But I kind of shy away.”
