After the dermatologist explained that the disease is “not curable, but it’s controllable.” Kim’s reacted saying “Psoriasis? I cannot have psoriasis,”
Kim confessed her stress and pressure, in an episode of the show filmed in April, “People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect. When I gain a pound it’s in the headlines. Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots!”
