Love is in the air, and Lauren Potter has the smile -- and the ring -- to prove it.

>> Read more trending stories

Potter, who is best known for playing Becky Jackson, one of Sue Sylvester's cheerleaders on "Glee," received a promise ring from her longtime boyfriend, Timothy Spear.

People caught up with Potter's mom, Robin Sinkhorn, who dished on all the details about that romantic day.

"He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready," Sinkhorn told the magazine. "Then they watched the sunset together."

Potter and Spear, both 26, were born with Down syndrome and first met when they were in diapers and participated in the same child development class at Children's Center in Riverside, California. The families have been friends ever since.

"We've kept in touch over the years, but it wasn't until the kids were reunited while they were both living in Laguna Beach," Sinkhorn told People. "When Lauren ended a relationship, Timothy immediately asked her out and they have been together since."

Potter recently appeared in an episode of "Veep" and has worked as an advocate for individuals with special needs. She previously served President Barack Obama's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities.

'Oh, good God': Megyn Kelly lets her emotions slip about Donald Trump

Upon learning Wednesday night that Donald Trump bragged about providing ramps for people with disabilities at his many commercial properties, which he is required to do or risk breaking the law, Megyn Kelly reacted as many Americans did — in utter disbelief.

“I spend millions of dollars on ramps, on all sorts of things in buildings,” Trump said.

“In some cases … many cases … things I don’t have to do, but I am a tremendous fan.”

“He doesn’t get any extra credit for that,” Kelly said in disbelief.

Kelly’s main criticism of Trump came from comments he made that reminded viewers of some of his headline-grabbing statements during the campaign.

“What is he doing, re-litigating every controversy from the primary season?” she said.

During the discussion on why he would bring a federally mandated provision into his building contracts, one of Kelly’s guests noted with a smile that “they’re very expensive in his buildings.”

When life imitates art: Shannen Doherty relives her '90210' character's cancer scare

Doherty relived the show's 1991 episode, “It’s Only a Test,” in a recent interview with "Entertainment Tonight," talking about the co-stars with whom she keeps in touch since the show ended.

“I remember that episode because it really meant a lot to me,” Doherty said.

In the episode, Brenda does an at-home breast exam and finds a lump in her left breast. She later undergoes a biopsy. While her character receives a clean bill of heath, Doherty herself now faces the worst possible situation.

Doherty told fans earlier this week that the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. She underwent a single mastectomy in May and is currently working through eight rounds of chemotherapy. Once she finishes the chemo, Doherty will undergo radiation treatments.

“Back then, I was a kid, man — I thought that I was invincible, I thought I was going to live forever,” she said.

Shannen Doherty's latest health update isn't something fans ever wanted to hear

Actress Shannen Doherty, best known for her parts in “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Charmed,” has been very open with her fans about her recent diagnosis of breast cancer.

In a new interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Doherty revealed the harrowing news that her cancer has spread to her lymph nodes and that she is in the midst of chemotherapy and will soon undergo radiation treatment.

“I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes. So for that reason, we are doing chemo, and then after chemo, I’ll do radiation,” Doherty said.

“The unknown is always the scariest part. Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work?” she continued. “Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable, you know, living without a breast is manageable. It’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”

Doherty recently showed her fans what it was like to shave her head after her hair began to fall out during chemo. Doherty described this process to ET.

New stories in noir series take dark paths of imagination

"Mississippi Noir," the latest collection of dark, often unsettling short fiction in the series from Akashic Books, takes readers down twisting roads into the ghoulish backwaters of the Southern mind.

Make that the Mississippi mind. As in the other Akashic noir collections, all the stories in this book unfold in the state or place in the title. In these stories, from Biloxi to Hattiesburg, from Jackson to Oxford, the various crimes of the heart or doomed deeds of fractured households are carried out in real Mississippi locales, at least for the most part.

The Akashic series began with "Brooklyn Noir" in 2004 and in a dozen years has spanned the globe ("Paris Noir," ''Singapore Noir," ''Havana Noir") with more than 70 titles. Each collection is a showcase of sorts, featuring all new works of fiction, many by writers unknown or little known.

The Mississippi collection benefits from having Tom Franklin as its editor. The author of some of the finest novels and stories in the Southern gothic or noir line, including his own book of short stories, "Poachers," Franklin teaches at the University of Mississippi and has brought together a wide range of talent and a variety of voices.

This makes for an uneven collection, and some readers may wonder how one story or another was included at all. As "noir" implies, these stories are not sunny, and they are not for everybody.

They include well-known writers, such as Ace Atkins, who leads off with "Combustible," about a simmering, trash-talking teen girl with trailer-home issues, and Megan Abbott, whose "Oxford Girl" is a timely, dreamlike retelling of a coed in frat hell. Both Atkins and Abbott have been picked for previous Akashic noir collections.

A number of the book's lesser-known writers have published fiction and won honors, such as Mary Miller, whose narrator in "Uphill" is a beautifully drawn woman on the fringes hanging with a man among the outcasts, and John M. Floyd, whose "Pit Stop" is a solid whodunit about a man stalking women on a Mississippi highway after dark.

Two newcomers mentioned by Franklin in his introduction are Jimmy Cajoleas and Dominiqua Dickey. Cajoleas, in "Lord of Madison County," takes the reader through a pot-headed and mayhem-filled joy ride of teenage sex and parental crackup. Dickey, in "God's Gonna Trouble the Water," more slowly tells a tale of race, family and sexual attraction that builds suspense as a storm grows on the horizon.

While the selections may be a mixed bag, overall they are a devilishly wrought introduction to writers with a feel for Mississippi who are pursuing lonely, haunting paths of the imagination.

Reality stars Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec marry

Canadian businessman and "Shark Tank" star Robert Herjavec has married his former "Dancing with the Stars" partner Kym Johnson.

People magazine reports the pair got married Sunday in Los Angeles. People says guests included "Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba and former competitors Joe Fatone, Lance Bass and Donny Osmond.

Herjavec is 53. He made a fortune in internet security technology before going on to star on "Dragon's Den" in Canada and "Shark Tank," the ABC version of business-themed reality show.

Donald Trump is guaranteed to win _ as top joke target

There's one area where Donald Trump is guaranteed to beat Hillary Clinton this fall: He'll be the butt of the most jokes by late-night comics.

That would be true even if Trump didn't present such a unique target. In every election year since 1992, the Republican candidate was mocked more by comedians than the Democrat, according to a think tank that tallies punch lines.

Republicans maintained that status even though Bill Clinton was the most joked-about politician during the past 24 years, said Robert Lichter, director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University.

The center's count didn't surprise Comedy Central's Trevor Noah, one of four late-night comics included in the study. The others are Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.

"Comedians are generally progressive," Noah said. "It is very rare that you will find it skewing the other way."

Noah, from South Africa, dipped cautiously into American political humor upon replacing Jon Stewart last fall as host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show." He's since become much more comfortable expressing his point of view, and it's decidedly liberal.

He said the phrase "conservative" alone implies a sense of comedic opportunity. Whether political, social or religious, conservatives "are the easiest people to poke fun at because they are essentially really steadfast in their ways, and even if their ways seem ridiculous, they're going to stand by them."

Not only are most comedians liberal, but comedy writing rooms are filled with them, said Michael Loftus, a conservative who hosts the syndicated satire show "The Flipside" and frequently writes for television. He's currently working on Kevin James' new sitcom for CBS, "Kevin Can Wait."

"I always thought comedy works best when you're the underdog," Loftus said. "And man, oh man, I'm the underdog in all of this."

While Trump is clearly "the gift that keeps on giving" for comedians and Bernie Sanders opens himself up to material, Loftus said Hillary Clinton is kind of a dull subject for jokes. Meanwhile, Noah found the Republican primary contenders, particularly Ted Cruz and Chris Christie, a font of material.

"Even if you don't know which political side to fall on, you know what side you want to fall on comedically," Noah said.

During the six presidential elections between 1992 and 2012, Republicans were the target of 5,944 late-night jokes and Democrats 3,298 barbs, Lichter said. The average margin will widen this year. Just through April, the most recent numbers tallied, Lichter's researchers counted 587 Trump jokes, and 115 directed at Clinton since last September.

The 1996 campaign was the closest, between Republican Bob Dole (839 jokes) and Bill Clinton (657), the center said.

Late-night comedy is in transition, and getting more liberal. NBC's Seth Meyers isn't included in Lichter's count, and he's been particularly rough on Trump. John Oliver of HBO and Samantha Bee on TBS host very progressive shows, although not quite as punch-line centered as the monologue-driven programs.

Former "Saturday Night Live" comic Dennis Miller swings right, and is a frequent guest on Fox News Channel. Fox has its own conservative-oriented comedy show, "Red Eye," but blesses it with a 3 a.m. time slot.

The key to success as a conservative comic is to worry about the funny first, said Loftus, who got his start in comedy clubs. "If they don't laugh in the comedy clubs, why would I expect them to laugh on my little TV show? You can't go out there spewing venom — 'they're ripping up the Constitution! Why aren't you laughing?'"

"In a nutshell, it's not fair," he said. "But nobody said the entertainment business is fair. Hopefully, we're in a system where the funniest guy wins in the end."

HLN's 3 female hosts speak out against sexual harassment

Three female anchors on cable's HLN channel saluted Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox News Channel newswoman who recently sued the network's chairman alleging years of sexual harassment. Carlson's lawsuit resulted in the departure of Roger Ailes, who had founded Fox News Channel two decades before.

"Maybe I'm lucky, but I haven't witnessed it and I haven't been subjected to it" during her career, said Robin Meade during a session Sunday at the Television Critics Association conference. "But it's infuriating that somebody would allegedly try to make you feel that your talent wasn't enough, that somehow you needed to supplement that."

"It takes a great deal of courage to do what she did," Michaela Pereira said. "I commend her for having the chutzpah to be able to speak up. She represents, unfortunately, a lot of women in the country that are dealing with that kind of discrimination in the workplace."

"I hope that what comes out of this is a really important conversation about what is important when you do your job, and what are the skills that matter," Erica Hill said. "I hope it makes everybody think."

Turner-owned HLN is returning to its news roots and boosting its live dayside lineup with this trio of women.

The new direction is represented by the continuing presence of Meade, who celebrates her 15th year on HLN and hosts the Atlanta-based "Morning Express."

Pereira recently launched a three-hour morning news program. "Michaela" is the only such national cable show to air from Los Angeles. Pereira was previously based in New York as a co-host of sister network CNN's "New Day."

Hill becomes a new addition with her two-hour daily news-and-interview program, as yet untitled, to originate from New York starting in September, HLN announced Sunday. Hill rejoined CNN and HLN earlier this summer after stints with CBS News and NBC News.

Their shows will carry out the new mission of HLN, offering a faster pace and wider range of news stories than does CNN, while skewing a bit younger and a bit more female.

"For each of us, with our shows, we have three different personalities," Pereira added. "That will come through in our broadcasts."
