Amazon Reviewers Swear By This Genius Ball To Keep Their Bag Dirt-Free

Wondering what your fellow Amazon shoppers think about The Clean Ball? Check out the following reviews.

“Very shocked! I kept seeing this thing everywhere ,so I decided to try it thinking it wouldn’t really work, but it does! I empty my bag, throw it in, shake it around and BOOM! All the little dust and crumbs stick to the ball. It’s very easy to clean too. Just run it under water and done! Glad I took a chance because this thing is great.”

“This product is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Does exactly what it says. Catches all the lint, dog hair and other various ‘stuff’ floating around your bag! Works well, just as stated. Recommend.”

“I found out about this little gadget on a TikTok video, and thought I’d give it a try. I usually keep some sort of snack in my purse, and as much as I try to keep the containers sealed, I inevitably end up with those annoying little ‘micro-crumbs’ at the bottom. As soon as I ordered this ball, I put it straight into my purse, and within a day or two, it was already time to wash it! It picks up a lot for being so small! Pro tip: To open it, squeeze the thick ring around the middle and it should pop apart pretty easily. Rinse off the sticky ball part with just water, then put it back together and let it air dry for a couple of hours. Good as new!”

“Purchased after seeing it in a TikTok video and it works soooo well in my purse. Best invention.”

“This thing is fantastic. It’s washable and picks up all the crumbs at the bottom of my purse — trust, there are many. I have already recommended to friends.”

“These are THE BEST. They collect so much dirt and dust from my tote bag and keep everything clean. Super small and easy to clean as well!!”

“These are the kind of products that I’m like, ‘Why didn’t I think of this?’ It’s amazing. Perfect size. Just plop it in and it does the work for you. It’s amazing and so cute.”

Remember When Patrick Dempsey Was a Nerd in Can’t Buy Me Love

Decades before he was making the rounds (and pulses race) at Seattle Grace hospital on Grey’s Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey was busy mowing lawns in Can’t Buy Me Love.

Taking its title from a Beatles song of the same title, the 1987 rom-com starred Dempsey as Ronald Miller, a high school nerd so desperate to be cool that he offers popular girl Cindy Mancini—played by the late Amanda Peterson—money to pose as his girlfriend. Yes, as hard as it is to believe, McDreamy actually had to pay to get a date in the 1980s.

While it didn’t become a smash hit like some of its fellow teen comedy cohorts in that era, Can’t Buy Me Love—which ultimately grossing just $34 million at the box officedid serve as Dempsey’s breakout movie role, with the 56-year-old later going on to become a go-to rom-com leading man after Grey’s made its debut in 2005.

Team Paxton or Team Ben?: Never Have I Ever Stars Decide

Warning: The below includes spoilers for season three of Never Have I Ever.

Never Have I Ever has us picking sides. 

The third season of the Netflix comedy, which dropped Aug. 12, ended with Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrisnan) on Ben’s (Jaren Lewison) doorstep, looking to cash in the “one free boink” card he gave her earlier in the season. The pair, who dated in season two, reunited and ended the season with a make-out session. 

But what does that mean for Devi’s ex-boyfriend Paxton (Darren Barnet)? Sure, he’s going to college in Arizona while Devi stays in California. Sure, Devi seems to finally be fully committed to Ben. But are we so wrong to wonder if there’s still a spark there?

So, who falls into Team Ben or Team Paxton? We decided to take it to the sources.

“I like to break mine up into percentage points,” Jaren exclusively told E! News. “I go 70 percent Team Ben, I go 20 percent Team Paxton, because I love Daren, and 10 percent Team Devi because we’re all rooting for her to find self-love.”

Wait, did that just convince us to join Team Ben?

Salman Rushdie Suffered “Life Changing Injuries” in Attack, Son Says

Salman was temporarily put on a ventilator while in the hospital, according to the agent, who also told The New York Times shortly after the attack that “Salman will likely lose one eye; the nerves in his arm were severed; and his liver was stabbed and damaged.”

The stabbing suspect, New Jersey man Hadi Matar, has since been arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder and second-degree assault. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Police are investigating the motive for the attack, which took place more than 30 years after Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a “fatwa” on Salman, calling on Muslims around the world to kill the author over his 1988 novel The Satanic Verses, which the supreme leader condemned as blasphemous. The author lived in hiding for several years after the religious edict was issued. Iran’s government officially maintained it after the Ayatollah’s death until 1998.

A preliminary law enforcement review of the stabbing suspect’s social media accounts showed he is sympathetic to Shia extremism and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps causes, a law enforcement person with direct knowledge of the investigation told NBC News.

After Heche’s passing, her ex-husband Coleman “Coley” Laffoon has shared a heartbreaking farewell to the late actress and gave an update on their 20-year-old son, Homer.

“In the wake of Anne’s passing, I just want to say a few things. One, I loved her and I miss her, and I’m always going to,” he said in a selfie video on Instagram on Aug. 12. “Two, Homer is OK. He’s grieving, of course, and it’s rough, it’s really rough, as probably anybody can imagine. But he’s surrounded by his family and he’s strong and he’s going to be OK.”

In addition to Homer, Heche is also a mom to 13-year-old son Atlas, whose father is her ex-partner and Men in Trees co-star James Tupper

The Vogue hitmaker made the request in a series of racy snaps in which she lifted up her sheer top to reveal a lacy black bra.
