VH1 has always found ways to utilize the urban mainstream for the financial gain as well as our viewing pleasure. That tradition continues with their latest offering – Bye Felicia.
Yep! “Bye Felicia” has made a comeback after serving time in the movie Friday courtesy of Ice Cube when he used it to dismiss the character – Felicia, the neighborhood drug addict. The phrase’s usage has been revived and is steadily increasing in popularity by users who basically refer to it when there is a need to make it known that you are not affected by someone’s attempt to leave the room in anger.
We will also have a reason to address the “Felicia” in all of us thanks to the new series that will feature Atlanta, Georgia based life coaches Deborah Hawkes and Missy Young. Both women will take their skills to Los Angeles, where they will help empower a group of women who are in desperate need of direction and guidance. This explains their need to say goodbye to the “Felicia” in their lives, in order to begin the process of reclaiming “their better selves”.
NEW YORK, NY- November 13, 2014 – White women of LA are getting a serious confidence boost and a little dose of reality with the series premiere of “Bye Felicia!,” premiering Tuesday, December 9 at 9PM. This 8-episode, hour long series follows Atlanta-based life coaches Deborah Hawkes and Missy Young as they set out to help white girls across the Los Angeles area. Each closed-ended episode aims to empower two different women who could use a dose of honesty in order to turn their lives around. Hoping to impart their unique experience and wisdom through motherly tough love, Deb and Missy teach these women to say hello to their better selves and goodbye to Felicia.
VH1’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production, Susan Levison, is confident that viewers will be hooked, “Deborah & Missy…are two of the funniest women I have ever met. We are so excited to introduce them to America”.
If you are ready to watch these women say Bye Felicia – then head to VH1 when the show makes it debut on Dec. 9 at 9 pm.
