Keri Russell & Matthew Rhys: They’re a couple

They have kept the secret like the spies they play on The Americans. But People.com reports the truth: Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are a couple.

The two were spotted last week at New York’s The Public Theater, where they watched the Steven Soderbergh-directed play The Library. Audience members said they saw Russell stroking Rhys’ hair and the two whispering.

When he was asked about the relationship last month, Rhys told People. “That’s the best [rumor] I love,” and said his mother even asked about the rumors. “I tell her, ‘You have to take off your Google alerts,’ ” he said.

Tony for Rosie

Rosie O'Donnell is getting a Tony Award.

The award’s administration committee said Tuesday that the former talk show host will get the 2014 Isabelle Stevenson Award, an honorary prize given to members of the theater community for their philanthropic efforts.

The committee cites O’Donnell’s commitment to arts education for New York City’s public school children. In 2003, the Emmy Award-winning O’Donnell created a nonprofit arts education organization now known as Rosie’s Theater Kids, which provides training in dance, music and drama for students attending public school in New York City.

Money problems

Is Lindsay Lohan broke? Radaronline says maybe.

A source told the website that although Lohan was paid $2 million to film her self-titled docudrama for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, she has already spent the money.

“Only Lindsay could get paid such a large paycheck and once again be in dire financial straits,” the source said. “After Lindsay’s manager, agent, publicist [and taxes] were paid … she was left with $750,000.”

Radaronline previously reported that the troubled star was declined twice over the weekend when she tried to buy $300 worth of goods from Rag & Bone in Soho, New York.

‘HIMYM’ ends

Some fans loved it. Others hated it. Either way, How I Met Your Mother signed off with a memorable finale Monday, and its stars and creator took to Twitter to thank fans, according to Us Weekly.

Show creator Craig Thomas tweeted. “We wrote a comedy with dramatic elements till the very end. Thanks for taking that ride with us.”

Star Josh Radner was grateful: “Been so overwhelmed in the best way by all the HIMYM love. Beyond grateful to have been a part of a show that’s meant so much to people.”

But perhaps co-star Alyson Hannigan summed it up best: “Good times, yeah?”

    Surprise, surprise: Selena Gomez was all smiles Sunday night at Variety’s pre-Emmys party. It was refreshing to see the sometimes-glum singer-actress actually looking happy for a change. Maybe the upbeat red silk jumpsuit Gomez had on lifted her spirits and took her mind off her wayward ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. The high-neck, long-sleeve vintage-y get-up was a nice change from all the skin and cleavage exposed around town.
