After David asked, “How is Kim?” Kourtney began talking to the staff behind the scenes, ignoring him and his co-host Sonia Kruger.

She then went completely silent — minus the occasional blink — leading fans on TikTok to think she was trying to make it look like the satellite connection had crashed.

“Hello Kourtney have we lost you?” David asked, while Sonia added, “Okay. Looks like Kourtney doesn’t really want to go there with that question.’

David was less than impressed by the loss of communication and said, ‘I think she’s completely shutting me up with that question!’

Sonia tried to defend Kourtney, explaining that it may have been a behind-the-scenes PR issue, before David blurted out, “She could just say her sister is okay!”

“I mean, I think we just said you know we’re very concerned and we were on-side and hoping everyone is okay, which I still do,” he continued.

Despite the interview being cut short, Today Extra hosts still discontinued her Manuka Doctor skincare range that she was promoting at the time.

After returning from a commercial break, David apologized to the mother of three during the broadcast before continuing with the interview.

“Something happened in the studio and we’ve kind of lost touch with Kourtney. We’re happy to say she’s still here,” he explained, a little embarrassed.

“I’m sorry about what just happened there. First of all, may we ask if everything is okay where you are now?’

Kourtney went on to explain that she had experienced a “poor connection.”
