Well, it ain't happening. In case you were wondering, the teen dream's rep is quashing that rumor once and for all:
"The rumors that Pattie Mallette is in talks with Playboy magazine to appear in an upcoming issue are completely false. She has never been approached by Playboy magazine nor has she approached Playboy. This story is utterly erroneous, without a shred of truth. Consider this denial the final word on the matter."
