In a scene that was deleted from Sunday's "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" episode, Kourtney Kardashian revealed that she weighs 98 pounds, which is 36 pounds more than her 8-year-old son Mason.
Social media erupted with body-shaming comments. Some questioned if she was unhealthily thin, on drugs, depressed, etc. Some even wondered what kind of role model Kourtney is for her children.
People may not know this about Kourtney Kardashian, but she is only 5 feet tall. If you go to www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/BMI/bmicalc.htm, and put in her height and weight, her BMI comes up as 19.1, which is within normal limits.
Kourtney Kardashian is a healthy mom of 3.
