Retta Never Thought "Treat Yo Self" Would Get Its Own Holiday (EXCLUSIVE)

By

You didn't have to watch all seven seasons of Parks And Recreation to know the meaning behind "treat yo self." The iconic phrase stemmed from Donna (played by Retta) and Tom (played by Aziz Ansari) during Season 4, Episode 4 (titled "Pawnee Rangers,"), when the duo celebrates the hilariously indulgent holiday together.

And with Treat Yo Self Day coming up on Sunday, Oct. 13, I was thrilled to speak with Retta about the quintessential saying, and if she foresaw its popularity.

Retta never imagined that "Treat Yo Self" would turn into a holiday.

When speaking with stand-up comedian and actress, Retta, I asked how she initially felt about "treat yo self" when she first taped the episode back in 2011, and if she ever thought it could eventually get its own holiday.
