Kailyn Lowry’s memoir titled “Pride Over Pity” was available for pre-order on Tuesday, March 4th. Her publishers are giving fans a sneak peek at the “dark secrets” Kailyn has been keeping in her closet that are in her new book. In a new press release her publishers state that Kailyn’s memoir is “a moving effort to finally put the past behind her” and they say that in it she “gives readers a raw and brutally honest account of her troubled often painful story, and, for the first time, reveals the dark secrets she has so closely guarded.”
The publishers continue with: “her desperate stay at a homeless shelter to qualify for a program that would provide a safe home for her son, breaking her silence on the question of her sexuality, and sharing the traumatic sexual experiences that have left her deeply scarred.” These secrets allegedly include addiction, rape, and the truth about her teen pregnancy. An excerpt from her book reads:
“If I ever gaze at the past, I shudder. I shudder to count how many times I mistakenly thought I was loved. I quiver unpleasantly to recall the person I used to be and how I acted in some of my relationships. Looking back, it’s not surprising that I turned to boys for love so early. I needed appreciation. I needed to feel worthy. Most of all, I needed support.”
