Look, just because Hilary Duff and Joel Madden are no longer together, that doesn’t mean other couples aren’t basking in each other’s glow.

Petra Nemcova, for example, is sick of rumors that she isn’t happy with wimpy singer, James Blunt. She told People magazine: “We’re very much in love.”

You can’t be any more, yes, blunt than that.

Nemcova and Blunt, 32, showed a united front when they hit L.A.’s Hyde Lounge together hand-in-hand last week. They may have seen Jessica Biel, Derek Jeter and every other celebrity there. The model and singer met in December 2005 and started dating earlier this year.

Rumors circulated recently that they’d split — with some even speculating that Nemcova had hooked up with hip-hop mogul and fellow activist Russell Simmons.

But “we never got separated. There was some stuff going on in the press, but it didn’t come from a right source — obviously,” Nemcova said.

Blunt will appear in Nemcova’s upcoming charity book project, Colors of Love, which will feature photos of firefighters, doctors and others, including such celebrities as Bruce Willis, Lance Armstrong and Eva Mendes, all talking about the charities they support.

“It’s about inspiring people to get involved in different causes and different charities,” Nemcova said of the book.

When asked to comment, Blunt just said “you’re beautiful” six dozen times in a row. We assume he was referring to Nemcova. He certainly wasn’t talking about Nicole Richie or Ashley Olsen.
