While Robert Pattinson is very good looking, we erroneously reported yesterday that the actor was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.

We were mistaken and THG regrets the error. (Although, in our defense, millions of teenage women still believe the Twilight hunk deserves the honor!)

Instead, People has awarded this distinction to Johnny Depp. It's the second time the actor has been cited for his extreme hotness. He joins Brad Pitt and George Clooney as the only two-time winners.

In the article praising Depp's prettiness, the publication writes:

At 46, the father of two still reigns as Hollywood's most irresistible iconoclast; as one-of-a-kind as his beloved 15-year-old boots and as smoldering as his favorite Cuban cigars.

Pattinson does at least get a shout-out in the issue, which hits newsstands on November 20. He receives honorable mention, as do other studs such as Ryan Reynolds and Nick Cannon.

Did Depp earn the title? Who do you think is the sexiest man in the whole wide world?

On The City this week, Whitney went on a blind date, Roxy's expectations of her new guy are not met, and Olivia impresses at a Brooklyn Decker photo shoot.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff breaks down the events on last night's episode of The Hills spinoff, awarding and deducting points as we deem appropriate ...

A Brooklyn Decker Bikini Photo

Roxy Olin imparts sage advice: Never leave food on the counter. Plus 1.

Whitney Port is going on a "full-on blind date." How can it truly be a blind date if he has to sign a waiver beforehand? She knows exactly who it is. Minus 2.

Blind date Patrick on his job description: "Basically I convince people to buy expensive clothes." Plus 4 for honesty, but Minus 2 for lame fashion acronyms.

Roxy and Zac seem like they could be a cute couple. For now. Plus 3.

Patrick encourages Whitney to "join forces" on the bill. We were getting a douche vibe, and this confirmed it. Why not just ask MTV to cover it, Pat? Minus 6.

Olivia Palermo and Erin Kaplan's task for this week involves Brooklyn Decker pictures in Elle. Plus 5, because Brooklyn rules, and so does her husband A-Rodd.

Roxy to Whitney: "You have to come. I need you as my wing man." Poor Whitney. Always a wing man, never the It Girl. Not even on her own show. Minus 3.

Erin goes off on Olivia to Joe Zee about Olivia "expecting her hand to be held." It's almost as if she's calling out the network for giving Olivia the job. Plus 5.

Zac, despite being billed as "Roxy's date," rolls up in the club with a pack of hot girls. Kind of a d!ck move, but Minus 2 for Roxy unjustly berating him for it.

Plus 1 for the blatant Cobra Starship plug. 21st Century payola? Plus 2 more for the guy defending Olivia as "a babe" when Erin complains about her.

Roxy and Whitney annoyingly go on and on and on about their boring boy problems, but like last week, Kelly Cutrone berates their "quilting circle," so Even.

Man, Erin is gonna straight up murder Olivia soon. You can practically see the steam spilling out of her ears. Plus 2, because at least it'll be televised.

TOTAL: +8. SEASON TOTAL: +7. Annoying at times, but at least Kelly calls out Roxy and Whitney, and we can't wait to watch Erin absolutely snap.

Seriously, America?!?

Was this season of Dancing with the Stars not boring enough already? You had to go out and vote off the most attractive remaining contestant, Joanna Krupa?!?

Is anyone actually excited for a threeway finale that features Mya (the clear favorite) against Donny Osmond (the ultimate panderer) and Kelly Osbourne (the... reality star)?

To Krupa's credit, she handled her elimination last night a lot better than our staff has. She said: "It's been such an amazing experience and I've grown as a person. Thank you to the judges. Thank you for giving me the opportunity. I had a great partner."

Joanna and Derek

Fortunately, we still have Krupa's naked Playboy pictures at which to stare. But we've never been less psyched for a DWTS finals in our time covering this show.

Not even exposed breasts and a bare crotch can offer us comfort. Let's hope the show learns from its mistakes next season, features fewer random stars and more actual entertainment.

For the second time since Sarah Palin stepped into the national political spotlight, a photo of her on the cover of Newsweek is sparking controversy.

Palin herself blasted the "out-of-context" cover as "sexist" on Facebook.

Originally published in the August 2009 issue of Runners World, the photo of Palin features the former Alaska governor in short runner's shorts.

Palin took issue with Newsweek using a photo from an article about fitness to promote an analysis piece contemplating her relevance in politics.

"The cover photo choice for this week's issue of Newsweek is unfortunate. With Sarah Palin, this 'news' magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant," the Going Rogue author's spokeswoman wrote.

Newsweek Cover of Sarah Palin

"The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention."

Newsweek editor Jon Meacham said the photo choice was simply the "most interesting image available" to "illustrate the theme of the cover."

The cover flap isn't the first for Newsweek and Sarah Palin pictures.

The October 13, 2008, issue featured an extreme close-up of her that she said was totally re-touching free and designed to highlight her flaws.

What do you think? Is Newsweek trying to sabotage her as a dope just because she's a conservative? Or is the cover a shrewd and accurate portrayal of just how far this particular politician is willing to travel on the road of self promotion?

Vote below: The Sarah Palin Newsweek cover is ...

Think Shauna Sand would miss a chance to reclaim attention from someone younger, more attractive and more popular stealing her sex tape spotlight lend a hand?

With the Carrie Prejean sex tape leaked and a company lined up to sell it if she's willing, Shauna wants Carrie to get off (heh heh) her high horse and take the cash.

Shauna Sand, who really has nothing better to do anymore, fired off a letter to Prejean in an effort to convince the "biblically correct" beauty queen to roll with it.

Vivid Entertainment has offered $1 million for the Carrie Prejean sex tape. Shauna is also distributing her nasty sex video through Vivid, so she knows what's up.

Shauna Sand Side Boob

Everyone needs a mentor. Shauna Sand is offering to be Carrie Prejean's.

In the letter, Shauna draws from her own experiences - how she decided not to waste "thousands of dollars" trying to fight the release of her "leaked" sex tape.

Instead, she worked out a deal with Vivid so she could maximize the profit provided by her disgusting sex romp ... which Shauna will also be actively promoting.

Of course, Shauna clearly wanted the thing to get out the whole time and created the "lawsuit" story for some free publicity, while Carrie's surprised everyone.

It's clear that any hypocritical ditz who lies about her age on the tape and makes claims to imply that God loves fake boobs didn't want this kind of PR. But hey.

In other sex tape news, how about Hiroko Mima and Anya Ayoung-Chee!? Wowza, those Miss Universe Girls are into some crazy stuff, from what we've heard.

Robert Pattinson is more than just a very pretty face and an incredible head of hair.

The Twilight Saga star spoke to Parade magazine this week and covered a number of topics inside. Did he admit that he's dating Kristen Stewart? Ha! Yeah, right.

But he did discuss his overall take on dating, along with stripping down to almost nothing in front of thousands of people. A series of excerpts are below...

On the message of the franchise: "What's interesting about this story is that it's supposed to be about this all-powerful immortal creature. But he's completely destroyed just by falling in love with this normal girl. He can't control anything afterwards. His entire life turns upside down. I guess love can be more lethal than a vampire bite."

On relationships: "Getting involved in Twilight has definitely changed my mind about how people are kind of fanatical about wanting to have the perfect relationship. I had no idea that people were so desperate and felt like it was so unobtainable. They want to put this idea of unconditional devotion just so high above everything else, which is why they can't get enough of this story."

Red Carpet Stud

On going shirtless: "I felt pretty goofy stepping out into the sunlight in front of 2,000 people in a town square, ripping my clothes off. I was essentially doing a striptease. But here's the irony, it was also one of the moments where I've really felt closest to people's emotional attachment to Edward.

"It was a moment where I've felt the whole weight of anticipation, and I guess responsibility as well, of being Edward, for all the people who were kind of so obsessed with the stories. It was quite uplifting and it was also very nerve-wracking."

On fame: "It's a scary situation to be in, in a lot of ways. You really have to question yourself a lot more. Before Twilight, I did any movie that I could and I tried to make the best of it afterwards. But now you're expected to come and provide, not only economic viability at the box office, but also a smashing performance as well.

"When no one's watching your movies and you get a part, you can do whatever the hell you want. I don't have that luxury anymore."

He can say that again! New Moon opens on Friday. The world might never be the same afterwards.

Tom Brady has three Super Bowl rings as quarterback of the Patriots.

He came back from a devastating knee injury to return to top form.

He's one of the most respected professional athletes in the world.

He's remarkably handsome and gets to see Gisele Bundchen nude.

That's quite a resume, and when you think about it, there's pretty much no reason he shouldn't be on the cover of GQ's Men of the Year issue. Way to go, Tom!

In the mag, Tom talks about his wedding to Gisele, saying that despite being big stars, "We planned [the wedding] in like 10 days, and it was perfect."

Their February 26 wedding, at Santa Monica's Catholic Church, was a small affair with only immediate family, including parents and Brady's son John.

"We went back to the house and I barbecued aged New York strips. We had champagne, a cake, ice cream. It was a great night," Tom Brady said.

"I think you always have an idea that weddings need to be 200 people, but there was really something special about just having our parents there."

As for married life now?

"We find time to spend together," says Brady, who is expecting a child with his wife in December. "But Gisele understands the job requirements."

This is what terrorist interrogation materials dreams are made of.

Fame-lovers Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are apparently feeling starved of attention because they are shopping around a reality show of their own.

The gruesome twosome is angling to branch out from the MTV hit, The Hills, to give viewers even more insight into their absurdly over-exposed lives.

”You don’t get to see our everyday lives and what we do,” says Heidi.

We're not sure we do. Our Heidi Montag nude tolerance is high, but not that high. Then again, maybe he's afraid to put out for his baby-crazy wife.

Stupid Speidi

Just what television needs. MORE Heidi and Spencer Pratt.

Currently promoting their new book, How to be Famous, the couple want their spin-off to include everything - everything - that happens to them.

But don’t get your hopes up, readers at home. In this scenario, they won’t be leaving The Hills, instead they would try to appear on both shows.

Talk about a dream scenario if ever there were one.

One thing we actually would love to see? Them sitting around and deciding how to bash Al Roker on Twitter. Do they plan everything for attention?

She's 48, she was discovered on a reality show and, having overcome insults about her appearance, she's on the verge of releasing her debut CD.

But the story of Susan Boyle goes beyond what viewers saw on Britain's Got Talent.

The singer, who was born with a learning disability after being starved of oxygen as a baby, opened up to Great Britain's The Daily Mirror about her abusive past this week.

“You’re looking at someone who would get the belt every day," she said. “There was discipline for the sake of discipline back then. But it’s all very different now. I think teachers are taught to understand children with learning disabilities a lot better.”

Boyle added that students "used to knock me about a bit and try to make me cry."

Susan's father died in the 90s. Her mom passed away in 2007. How has she thrived in the face of all these obstacles? Through a powerful belief in herself and her talent.

“I have my faith, which is the backbone of who I am... I had a slight disability, but rather than let that rule my life I had to find my abilities and make the most of them instead.”

She's certainly done so. Boyle's album will be released on Monday. It faces stiff competition from albums from Adam Lambert, Rihanna and John Mayer. But Susan has dealt with more pressing problems in the past.

“This feels like a good way of making up for that – a very, very enjoyable way of making up for it," she said of the CD, which she describes as "a reflection of my whole life.”

Will you buy Boyle's album?

Joe Jackson was already shut down last week by a judge after he tried to get a piece of son Michael's estate. But he's looking to overturn the court's decision.

The man is relentless in pursuit of cashing in. We're surprised he hasn't personally shown up to the house of Dr. Conrad Murray. Then again, he's broke.

Joe filed papers echoing Randy Jackson's recent claims that someone forged MJ's will. Joe wanted the judge to replace the current executors of MJ's estate.

A judge shot this down, clearing the way for Michael's executors, John Branca and John McClain, to do their thing. But Joe filed papers challenging the ruling.

Joe Jackson will not stop. Ever.

Next up, Joe will be caught on closed circuit TV trying to break into Forest Lawn and see if Michael was buried wearing any jewelry he can sell on
