Fee, whose real name is Felicia O’Dell, was placed on life support after suffering from a massive heart attack on Tuesday, according to TMZ. She was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
Better known as Chef Sista Girl to her fans, Fee became an internet sensation in 2014 for her unique cooking videos on YouTube. She quickly became known for her “good ass chicken” and “sweet treats for the kids” videos.
O’Dell rose to fame for her budget-friendly cooking tips and down-to-earth realness on camera — she wasn’t afraid to throw an expletive or two into her videos.
One of her most viewed videos, which currently has more than 2 million views, is about feeding a family of seven with just $3.35.
Chef Sista Girl’s first video, titled “Auntie Fee’s Sweet Treats for the kids,” has over 4 million views and boasts a recipe that calls for crescent rolls, peanut butter, raisins and sugar.
“If you don’t have crescent rolls, you can use any kind of cheap a– donuts or whatever, it doesn’t matter,” says Fee in the video. “I don’t know what the f— this is, it’s just something sweet for the f—ing kids.”
