Colleen Ballinger, the character's creator, is breaking boundaries by becoming the first YouTube personality to get her own scripted show on Netflix. Called "Haters Back Off," the series imagines the popular character's life away from the web-cam.

With over 6 million subscribers and nearly 2 billion video views, it would seem like a well-planned empire but Ballinger said it all started as a joke.

"I thought it was so weird that people would just sit in their bedroom and film themselves and then upload it online for everyone to see," she told TODAY's Sheinelle Jones.

Since then Ballinger has shared almost everything with the fans who made her dreams come true, including her recent divorce.
