Kris Jenner is typically all about the Keeping Up With the Kardashians franchise, but on an upcoming episode of the reality show, she seems to be something akin to a mother. Of course since it's for the show, she gets twofold credit for her efforts.

It's no secret that Rob Kardashian has been spiraling down some deep, dark hole for quite some time now, and Kris Jenner is becoming increasingly concerned. On this weekend's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she calls in a life coach to see how they can all work together to save Rob--mostly from himself.

"I feel like if I don't help him do something drastic, that he's gonna die," Kris says in a preview for the episode.

Daughters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are present as well. Khloe Kardashian wasn't invited because, as Kris Jenner says, everyone knows she's very protective of Rob.

"He was always someone who was very athletic growing up, and he's gained over 100 pounds in the last year," Kris tells the life coach. "He doesn't want to participate. He doesn't go out of the house. He's missed Christmas, he's missed Kim's wedding."

"He obviously has some kind of depression," Kim Kardashian adds. "He is the king of excuses ...I'm the only one that's really tough with him so he probably avoids me the most."

Rob Kardashian didn't win any brownie points with Kim recently when he posted a picture of Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike, covered in blood, and captioned it, "This is my sister Kim, the b**ch from Gone Girl." He has since deleted the post.

Kim Kardashian feels a tough love approach is the only way to help her brother.

"Everyone licks Rob's ass and does whatever he says," she told Kris Jenner during another preview of Sunday's episode. "It's just like, at some point you just have to give it up. We all make his life so easy."

Do you think Kris Jenner has what it takes to save Rob Kardashian from himself? Is a life coach the right kind of person to call in for help?

And how will having this ordeal play itself out on Keeping Up With the Karashians benefit Rob at all? Isn't this something Kris Jenner, and perhaps Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, should deal with privately instead of in front of the cameras?
