YouTube Cooking Star Felicia “Auntie Fee” O’Dell Fighting For Life After Heart Attack
If you like looking for unique food recipes (and how to make them) on YouTube and like to laugh at the same time, you probably know about Felicia “Auntie Fee” O’Dell.
She’s amassed quite a following for her potty-mouthed cooking videos, where she makes all sorts of meals for friends, family, the kids “and sh-t.” Such dishes include meals with a lot of cheese, like parmesan steak, cheese tater thots and grilled cheese with shrimp, as well as chicken and sweet treats that she’s been putting together on camera (usually recorded by son Tavis) for the last few years.
Sadly, the YouTube personality is reportedly fighting for her life right now after having a heart attack.
According to TMZ, she was taken to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after initially feeling sick over the weekend. In the early hours of Sunday, the 59-year-old did state via social media that she had fallen somewhat ill.
Her condition didn’t improve as the week started, though. She reportedly told family members that she was having chest pains and started vomiting yesterday, so she was taken to the hospital. There were stories claiming she passed away last night, but such reports were quickly debunked with an update on O’Dell’s Facebook page and a request for prayers.
The latest updates from family to fans claim that O’Dell is in critical condition.
Since going viral in 2014, O’Dell has appeared on everything from The Steve Harvey Show to Jimmy Kimmel Live and even having a cameo in Barbershop: The Next Cut. Her videos have obviously entertained and brought joy to a lot of people as there has been an outpouring of love for the woman they call Auntie Fee online. In an interview with The Los Angeles Times in 2015, O’Dell said she’s relatable to so many because she keeps it real and encourages others to be themselves, too. Her most recent video was published a week ago.
“I want them to feel comfortable,” she said. “They don’t have to dress a certain way to see me or talk a certain way to come in contact with me.”
She added, “This is their house and they don’t have to put up a front for nobody.”
