Auntie Fee on Life Support; YouTube Cooking Star Unlikely to Make It

Auntie Fee, a viral sensation whose YouTube videos about cooking on a budget have earned her a dedicated following, is fighting for her life.

According to TMZ, Auntie Fee (real name: Felicia O’Dell) fell very ill over the weekend.

She then suffered a severe heart attack on Tuesday.

Multiple outlets (including TMZ itself and BET) were told by Fee’s nephew and sister that the 59-year-old actually died as a result of this medical emergency.

However, reports now indicate that she’s on life support, surrounded by family members and loved ones at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after being rushed to the facility by an ambulance.

O’Dell rose to Internet fame in 2014.

She first established herself as an online star by posting her recipes for “good ass chicken” and “sweet treats for the kids,” the latter of which garnered  500,000 page views overnight.

From there, Fee went on to appear in the film Barbershop 3.

A Los Angeles native, Auntie Fee whips up meals from the comfort of her own kitchen, often cursing up a storm throughout each instructional video.

Along with the two videos mentioned above (which have combined for over four and a half million views), Fee has filmed a segment about how to feed seven people on a budget of $ 3.35.

Total.

(How is this possible?!? For the record, this recipe includes instant ramen, leftover taco meat, parsley and cheese as its main ingredients.)

Auntie Fee has also appeared on a multitude of talk shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Steve Harvey.

She most recently stopped by an episode of MTV’s World Star TV on March 10.

Moreover, celebrities such as Sherri Shepherd have paid a visit to Fee’s kitchen in order to cook meals and meet the unlikely star.

On Tuesday afternoon, one of Auntie Fee’s family members posted to her official Facebook page the following message:

“I NEED ALL OF Felicia Auntie Fee O’Dell PRAYER WARRIORS TO SEND A FEW [prayers] UP FOR HER. (She’s in the hospital).”

Also known as Chef Sista Girl, Fee shared a video on March 6 where she gave an expletive-filled thumbs up review of Art’s Wings and Things in South Los Angeles.

Fans did note at the time that she appeared a little out of breath at the beginning, but soon was back to her motor-mouth self.

We send our thoughts and prayers to Auntie Fee and to her loved ones.
