It's basically ending a sentence with a comma and "Bitch!", as a way of someone verbally making an exclamation point in dialog.
It did get overused, so now it's a Discredited Trope. You're as likely as not to see it thrown in a sentence just to be funny, even though there is no other reason to emphasize a point this way. Bitch.
Since talking this way is inherently humorous, actual dramatic scenes are more likely to use "son of a bitch" (if the target is male) or some other insult (if the target is female) instead.
This can overlap with Quote Swear Unquote, Obligatory Swearing.
Compare (but would not overlap with) Verbal Tic, Precision F-Strike.
Scotch: Chip… you son of a… BITCH; you… you know damn well that you… you and your family aren't… welcome here… after what… what happened long… long ago so why the… hell did you… you come here to… N-N-N-N-N-Novi Finis City anyway?

How about Barney speaking French? "Parce que j'ai le jeu, mes chiennes. Translation? Cos I got game, bitches!"
That doesn't quite meanwhat he wanted. "Chiennes" literally means "female dogs." If he wanted "bitches" in the slang sense, he should have used "salopes" or "garces" depending on personal preference.

Thats Just Me: Elizabeth once disguised herself as Amelia and walked into Amelia's house yelling: "I'm your worst nightmare! I'm a motherfucking crossdressing lesbian Jew, BITCH!!". However, is most versions of this episode, the line is censored, changing it into: "I'm your worst nightmare, because I'm a crossdressing tomboy, man!"
Okay, so they'll censor that, but NOT any of the characters' foul mouths, all of the fanservice/nudity scenes, OR any of the mental illness jokes?
They also joke a lot about suicide, even though the main character almost committed it in an earlier episode.
Perhaps they censored it because Elizabeth ISN'T religious? The episode was called 'I Don't Wanna Cut My Hair! What Happens When Elizabeth Crossdresses' and it was in the 6th season.
From Spartacus: War of the Damned, when warrior-woman Saxa is confronted by two large gladiators who want to kill some prisoners entrusted to her by Gannicus...

Saxa: "I give cause, bitch."

Stand-Up Comedy, Bitch!
Inverted by David Cross, on Bigger and Blackerer: He details a game to play with friends at a restaurant. When talking to the waitress, make the first thing you say be "Yeah, bitch," But in as low-key a manner as possible. Then, be as polite as possible when making your order. The object is to make it so that the waitress won't be sure you called her 'bitch', but would feel uncomfortable asking such a polite person if he did.
"By the way, if you ever have a job where you have to give speeches in front of people, pepper in the phrase 'suck it.' Very empowering. Just be like 'As you can see from our Powerpoint presentation suck it...' And your clients will be like, 'Did he... did he... did he say suck it? I like this guy... he's a go-getter.'"
True Crime: Streets of LA. uses this liberally, but I guess the greatest example is when Nick Kang, the protagonist, finishes off the crime lord who had his father killed over a money laundering scheme.

Duke Nukem: Duke, despite his extreme womanizing, is a Chivalrous Pervert who never insults the objects of his desire. When you hear him confront the female monster Alien Queen and bellow, "I'm gonna kick your ass, bitch!", you know it is on.

You will hardly ever hear any other curse word used, leading to several grunts using "bitch" so many times you'd wish they'd just say something else. For major characters, Two Face takes the cake, especially when he's going against Catwoman. Makes you wonder if he knows any other insults.
