Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin Opens Up About Life In A Homeless Shelter And Dealing With Online Bullies


Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin sat down with Giuliana Rancic to discuss her struggles and book release.

Considering Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin's shaky relationship with her mother, her bipolar disorder diagnosis and her custody issues with ex Jo Rivera, the "Teen Mom 2" cast member has certainly had her fair share of struggles and heartache. But if there's one thing we've learned about Kailyn, it's that she's a trooper, and in an interview with E! News, the recent author, whose book "Pride Over Pity" hit stores yesterday, explained to Giuliana Rancic how she stays strong in the face of adversity, which has included time spent in a homeless shelter.

Kailyn revealed that after she moved out of Jo's house, she had nowhere to go, and ultimately entered a shelter. "I didn't want my son to be taken away from me if I didn't have a place to stay," she said, adding that briefly residing in the facility qualified her for a program that helps young, single mothers land on their feet, which led to her getting her first apartment.

Kailyn, who's since married Javi Marroquin and given birth to another son, Lincoln, affirmed that her life has "completely changed" for the better, but acknowledged that she still faces challenges in the world of online bullying. Social media users continue to post nasty comments that pick at her weight, marriage and even her kids, but support from fellow "Teen Mom" cast members has helped her sort through the negativity. "I talk to Maci [Bookout]," Kail shared. "She just said 'Don't read them, because if you read them, you're setting yourself up for failure.'"

Nowadays, Kailyn's committed to staying strong and looking to the future, she asserted. Check out her full interview, and be sure to pick up "Pride Over Pity" in print or as an ebook!
