In the clip, Kourtney was seen feeling a little low as she discussed with her mum Kris Jenner about how she and her fiance Travis Barker were trying to bring a new life into the world. She also discussed the issues the couple is facing. The 42-year old Poosh founder said that this has 'not been the most amazing experience'. She explains in the now-deleted video how the weight gain is accelerated by her IVF medications. However, the virtual hate she has been receiving does not help either. The sadness has further intensified due to 'rude' comments regarding her weight gain. Many have been relentlessly pointing out changes in her physical appearance.

She said, "I’m, like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re going through," adding that, "The medication that they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause." She then emphasized, "Literally into menopause." Kris then replied, "off of what? A drug?" Without specifying the exact prescription, Kourtney replied, "yes".
