Teen Mom 2’s Kail Lowry book is set to release on November 22, 2016. Hustle and Heart, her third publication, is now available on Amazon as a pre-order for $15.00.
Kail’s new autobiography is described as “being packed with motivational inspirational messages, personal advice and relatable experiences for those making their way through life’s challenging mix of joy and hardship.” It features a companion adult coloring book. I’m not making this shit up.
Hustle and Heart will cover bullying, sexual assault and body image as well as “marriage and career challenges.”
Hold up. You know, when these girls from the franchise started releasing their own Teen Mom books, a lot of people criticized the mere idea. Memoirs and autobiographies from people in their early 20s are usually laughable. I mean, barring somebody like Malala Yousafzai, most people in their early 20s, no
matter how rough their childhood, just do not possess the perspective to write a compelling memoir.
However, we mostly let them get away with it. The Twitter feed would fill with young fans anxious to hear the childhood stories behind their favorite MTV stars. It’s part of the whole “How far they’ve come” theme. Then, of course, there were those of us who read PDFs floating around the net just to increase our gossip ammo.
But honestly, two memoirs at 24 years old? Is this not a bit obscene? Kail’s last book Pride Over Pity was released in 2014, just two years ago. How much as she changed in two years? Are we really going to get a rehash of her embellished bullying incidents or have to painfully re-read descriptions of rape that were already published in her first book?
And what career challenges has she possibly faced? She has not even graduated her 4-year institution with her expected degree in communications. Are we talking of the exaggerated “challenges” of being a famous MTV star with hundreds of thousands of income for each season?
Let’s be real. Kail was admirably hard-working in the beginning of Teen Mom and in the interim after the show was seemingly canceled. She worked at Circuit City, the local mall, and eventually received training to work as a dental assistant. At some points, she did have that streak of “hustle,” which is why she was personally my favorite of the series. However, this drive of hers has been swallowed by her attempts at showing off material success that we all know is bought and paid for by letting cameras film her sitting on the couch complaining. It never seems quite the hard knock life they want us to think it is.
Whatever pearls of wisdom Kail has on the topic of body image will be immediately betrayed by her publicly live-streamed Brazilian Butt Lift and tummy tuck. Or DAE remember when Kail did those awkward, half-dressed photos with the words “Beauty is Sizeless” scrawled on her flank? Something is always incongruous with this chick.
And wait, didn’t she just recently complain that she hates when people refer to her as Kailyn instead of Kail? Because her newest 140-page, hardback memoir proudly displays her full first name Kailyn.
Finally, the cover. JesusGodKail, that cover. After all the hubbub over Isaac being dressed and groomed too “gangster,” Kail looks like she’s straight up channeling her idol Eminem. There’s just so much wrong here, I won’t even start. Y’all have fun with that in the comments!
Of course, I will still read this book when it comes out, if only to update you guys on what kind of disaster it is. Have any of you read her first book, Pride Over Pity? Tell us your thoughts!
