*Webbies, we’re about to clock out, cash this check and hit the Chardonnay but before we do check out Social Heat. Jamie Foxx, Tommy Lee Jones, and Jurnee Smollett star in “The Burial,” streaming October 13 on Prime Video. Jamie stars at Willie E. Gary, a prominent attorney based in Stuart, Florida, who has earned the nickname “The Giant Killer” because of his ability to “take down some of America’s most well-known corporate giants on behalf of his clients,” according to his company’s website. “The Burial,” inspired by true events, shows audiences how Gary defended a funeral home business owner against a corporate Goliath. Check it out below.

Ava DuVernay is the bar, and she continues to make history. Recently, she became the first African-American female director to compete at the Venice Film Festival in its 80-year history. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told, don’t, don’t apply to Venice. You won’t get in. It won’t happen. And this year it happened. Something happened that hadn’t happened in eight decades before. An African-American woman in competition…The only way to be able to combat those ideas of ‘you can’t do this, they’re not interested in you’ is to go out and do it.” said Ava at a press conference for her latest film “Origin.”

“Love & Hip-Hop” cast member Vonshae Taylor-Morales, Gunplay‘s wife, is stuck like Chuck because her husband refuses to sign the divorce papers and release her from their marriage, according to Madamenoire. “So, I’m stuck. Unfortunately, in Florida, I cannot divorce him without his permission. Unless he goes to jail convicted or he’s a mental institution patient,” she said on Instagram Live. Vonshae did admit that she still loves her husband, “He do love me. I love him. That’s my best friend. But, unfortunately, sometimes you have to let the person you love go so he can find himself. And I want him to find himself and to get help. We do have a child together, so it is what it is,” the reality TV star said. “I’m not a evil bitch. We’re not fighting. Yeah, no. We all know he has issues. He needs help. He’s going to get the help he needs. And we will co-parent. That’s all we want to do.”

French Montana and Swae Lee have both signed up to donate 500 canoes to help the children in Makoko, Nigeria, who have to live with “pollution and lack of sanitation.” The hip-hop stars, who filmed their video “Wish U Well in the City, are committed to delivering 120 canoes monthly and reaching their goal by Christmas. “I witnessed firsthand how water is both a lifeline and an obstacle in Makoko. These boats are essential tools transporting the residents of Makoko and goods and services,” French Montana said in an official statement in a press release sent to People. There are also plans for projects to address Makoko’s vulnerability to climate change.
