In the episode, she discussed how she did not get an invitation to a party hosted by a friend who resided in the same apartment complex as hers.

On 4 August 2021, Shields announced on her Instagram account that she and her fiance, Ishaan, had split up. Their engagement which was announced a few months before their breakup was also called off.
On her Instagram stories, she affirmed, "End of the day for me, while it's like the hardest thing, it's the decision that I know I need to make for myself and my family. My heart is hurting a lot right now but in my mind, I know that this is the right call."
