Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry just published an emotional and inspirational memoir called Pride Over Pity, and it looks like it's on the way to being a best seller! Kailyn's autobiography chronicles her life before MTV stardom, and is an honest and unfiltered look at her struggles with drugs, homelessness, her eating disorders, sexual abuse, and having an addict for a mom. Basically, Pride Over Pity is full of real talk — and it's leaping off the shelves!
The book is on sale both in stores and online, and amazingly it's already broken Amazon's top 100 bestsellers. Kailyn's response? "I'm dying!" she tweeted. "Thank you all so much. I have no words."
It's no surprise that Pride Over Pity is being so well-received. The book, for one, is totally amazing and secondly, an eye-opening look at the life of a well-loved reality star. And you better believe Kailyn is aware that her role on Teen Mom 2 opened the door for her to publish!
"There's definitely pros and cons to everything we do. I definitely think there's been a lot of opportunity for me because of the show, but there has been some setbacks as well," she recently told E! News. "I've faced bullying online, death threats, people kinda stalking."
Many of Kailyn's negative experiences stem from social media, and were a catalyst for her having suicidal thoughts. "There was just everything from things about my weight, about my appearance," she explained. "They would make up things that my husband's cheating on me, that my kids are ugly."
We can't imagine how hard this is for Kailyn to deal with, but she says that "at this point I have two kids and I kind of just have to keep moving, I have to keep going."
Amen to that. Are you amazing by how strong Kailyn is? Sound off below!
