You, guys! Kailyn Lowry’s revealing memoir, Pride Over Pity is becoming just way too much for us to handle. Not only did she reveal her traumatic experiences with rape and abortion, and her bouts with various eating disorders, but now it turns out girlfriend was homeless at one point!
Kailyn managed to keep her stint at a local Pennsylvania homeless shelter a secret, even from MTV cameras. “I arranged for Isaac to stay at Jo’s, but I kept everyone in the dark as to where I was going,” she writes. “Nobody knew what I was doing, not even MTV producers, and I hoped it would remain that way because I felt like utter s—t.”
We can’t even begin to think just how hard that was for Kailyn, especially since she had no safe place for her son to stay with her. But luckily, Kailyn only spent a two days at the shelter — a small prince she had to pay in order to become qualified for the local organization’s housing program.
“[Isaac] needed a safe place to live with me,” she adds. “At that point, staying in a homeless shelter for two nights seemed like a small price to pay.”
Shortly after, Kailyn ended up signing a new lease for an apartment, which you might remember from Teen Mom 2, but no one knew — not even the MTV crew— just how Kailyn went about getting the new place through the housing program.
We’re so happy to see that everything worked out for the better.
