The internet has lost one if its most beloved culinary experts.
Auntie Fee, whose YouTube videos about cooking on a budget garnered a cult-like following, has died at 59-years-old, TMZ reports. According to the outlet, Auntie Fee (real name Felicia O’Dell) fell ill over the weekend, and after experiencing chest pain Tuesday, suffered a fatal heart attack.
The Los Angeles native skyrocketed to internet stardom in 2014, when her expletive-filled instructional video on how to make “sweet treats for the kids” with crescent rolls, butter, sugar-cinnamon, and raisins earned 500,000 page views overnight.
Nearly three years later, Auntie Fee’s most infamous video has upwards of four and a half million views, followed by her price-conscious segment on how to feed seven people with $3.35. (For the record, this recipe touts instant ramen, leftover taco meat, parsley and cheese as its main ingredients.)
Other famous videos, which were all filmed by her son, of Auntie Fee’s include her take on “good ass chicken,” in which she seasoned frozen chicken wings in her sink, as well as “dumb good mac and cheese.”
Auntie Fee appeared on numerous talk shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Steve Harvey. She most recently guest starred on an episode of MTV’s World Star TV aired March 10.
Earlier today, one of Auntie Fee’s family members posted to her official Facebook page, “I NEED ALL OF Felicia Auntie Fee O’Dell PRAYER WARRIORS TO SEND A FEW [prayers] UP FOR HER. (She’s in the hospital)” Chris Browntook to social media to express his condolences, tweeting, “RIP AUNTIE FEE”
Our thoughts are with Auntie Fee’s family at this time.

If you’re reading this through bleary eyes, then chances are you just watched the This Is Us season one finale. It’ll be OK. Remember to breathe. You survived “Moonshadow” and Mandy Moore has a message for you. Mama Pearson to the rescue!
“I hope everybody enjoyed the finale, it was a bit of a doozy,” Moore told E! News while promoting Tangled: The Series with costar Zachary Levi by her side.
The adventures of the Pearson clan will continue for at least two (yes, two) more seasons—NBC has ordered 18 episodes for each season.

“I’m just as curious as all of you are to see where we pick up in the beginning of season two,” Moore said.
Expect more time jumps, it is creator Dan Fogelman after all. Fogelman posted the text exchange he had Papa Jack Pearson himself, Milo Ventimiglia, after the actor read the episode. And yes, he knows he spelled Ventimiglia’s name wrong, Fogelman.
“Ha! Didn’t see that. Put into my phone early on. Hey I got “Milo” right,” he tweeted.
And yes, we know, This Is Us didn’t reveal how Jack died. You knew that wasn’t going to happen now.
“The one thing you do know is Jack is dead and everybody’s fascinated with knowing how, when and why,” Ventimiglia said on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “The thing that I keep…talking about to people is, worry about how he’s living. Why he’s living. Those are the moments. Don’t focus on death, you want to focus on his life.”
This Is Us airs on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
