Thursday's premiere episode of the Hulu reality TV series gave viewers an intimate look at the 45-year-old Poosh founder's scary hospitalization while pregnant with her fourth child.

Kourt detailed what led to her immediate surgery last summer ahead of baby Rocky's arrival after getting a scan at home.

"The doctor who will come to the house to do the scan is a high-risk doctor, really detailed and thorough at looking for everything," she explained.
