Maybe it was just the post-Valentine's Day buzz talking, but Khloé Kardashian says that if rumors that her big sister Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are rekindling their romance are true, she's, well, behind it.

"I love 'The Bush and The Tush,' " Kardashian, 27, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show on Wednesday. "You can't do much better than that."

But Kardashian said she could neither confirm nor deny that Kim, 31, and the 26-year-old Miami Dolphins running back were back on after two years apart and only a handful of months after her quickie marriage to Kris Humphries ended. (The two were spotted at lunch together on the patio of the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel on Sunday.)

Hugh Hefner to Give Girlfriends Lingerie for Valentine's Day

Originally posted 02/14/2012 01:45PM

Hugh Hefner's New Year's resolution may be to remain a bachelor, but when it comes to another holiday, the Playboy mogul is all about being in love.

"I'm a romantic, and Valentine's Day is the holiday for the romantics," Hefner, 85, tells PEOPLE. "Love and attraction between the sexes makes the world go 'round. Some people think religion is the civilizing force, but I think love is the civilizing force."

Tuesdays at the Playboy Mansion are typically reserved for game nights consisting of Dominos and cards, but Hefner is making an exception this week in honor of the holiday, at the request of his girlfriends Shera Berchard and Anna Berglund.

"We're going out to dinner," he says. We're going to eat Italian. We're going to Valentino [restaurant in Santa Monica, Calif.]"

Her husband may have been 7,500 miles away but the Duchess of Cambridge still received plenty of love on Valentine's Day.

William sent her a card and some flowers – and the people of Liverpool, England, added their bouquets and hugs on Tuesday.

During her 20-minute visit to Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Kate, in a chocolate brown overcoat by Hobbs and earrings by Niki McDonough, received flowers from onlookers and greeted (and hugged) some young admirers.

"She was brilliant," says Lyndsey Maclean, 36, whose daughter Katie, 9, also met the duchess. "You wouldn't think she hadn't been doing this for such a short time. She was friendly to everyone."

Married life is apparently quite sweet for Nikki Reed.

A few months after telling PEOPLE that marriage is "easy breezy" so far, Reed was given a thoughtful treat from hubby Paul McDonald just before the pair celebrate their first Valentine's Day as husband and wife.

The holiday "came a little early," Reed, 23, wrote on WhoSay Monday, in a post that included a photo of a chocolate heart-shaped cake topped with two pink frosting flowers.

Reed noted that the sugary gift from the American Idol alum – which read "Happy 4 Months" on top – was "a lot of calories."

Heidi Klum isn't worried about spending Valentine's Day apart from husband Seal this year.

"For me it's not really that big of a deal," Klum told PEOPLE at the Destination Maternity event in New York City, where she presented her new maternity collections Lavish by Heidi Klum for A Pea in the Pod and Loved by Heidi Klum for Motherhood Maternity, "because we're in love all the time."

In town for New York Fashion Week, where the supermodel also hosted the finale show for Project Runway's season 7 on Friday morning, Klum says her husband, who's staying in Los Angeles with their kids, is very attentive all year. "Some people complain about their spouses," she said. "That they forget or neglect [them]. I happen to be very lucky that my husband has not forgotten those things nor needs to be reminded."
