And even for me personally, I wasn’t in the happiest place,” the 42-year-old Poosh founder stated in her Bustle cover story printed on Thursday, March 3. “I felt like I was being almost a character. ‘This is Kourtney, and she’s in a bad mood, so even though she was laughing really at lunch, we’re going to cut out the laughing and let’s only use the annoying comment that she said.’”
Kourtney instructed the outlet that she would “give myself a pep talk before walking in” to movie the present.

Let’s put a smile on our face,’” she defined. “I see the growth that comes from those unhappy places which make it all worth it. I’m like, ‘If we didn’t go through these roller-coasters, you wouldn’t get to the good part.’”
