If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that it's been a tumultuous year in the life of Kailyn Lowry.
Of course, Lowry has been pretty guarded about much of what's going on, to the point that fans of the show don't even know who the father of Kailyn's third baby is.
Unfortunately for her, secrets don't stay buried for long in 2017, especially when you're living the life of a heavily-scrutinized reality star.
Even if Kailyn isn't willing to spill the tea herself, she's surrounded by those who will happily offer their takes on her life, chief among them, her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.
Javi will soon become the latest in a long line of Teen Mom stars who have published memoirs.
Not surprisingly, Kail is reportedly less than thrilled by the the prospect of Javi's forthcoming memoir, especially since he sames to take a shot at her right in the title:
The book will reportedly be titled Heartlessly Hustled, a play on Kailyn's memoir, Hustle and Heart.
Javi confirmed the news of his entry into the literary world with an Instagram caption posted last week:
“It’s official! I just signed with 13th & Joan Publishing to get my book done! All I can say is stay tuned!” he wrote.
Thus far he's been tight-lipped about what sort of revelations the book will contain, but he went into slightly greater detail in a recent IG video:
“I’ve been working on a lot of projects recently, and today I officially signed with a publisher for my book,” Javi says in the clip below.
“I’ll be giving out little details here and there, so stay tuned, follow me, I'll be giving out little hints here and there of some previews, release date, book tours, all that, so make sure you stay tuned!
Interestingly, Kailyn went in to damage control mode and started dismissing the project almost immediately:
“We were married, so we both know pretty much the worst and best about each other. I have enough to publish a book, too, but what’s the point,” she recently told In Touch.
Kailyn has already written two memoirs and recently inked a deal to publish a third, so it's not like she's arguing that it's dumb for reality stars to slap their names on ghostwritten autobiographies.
(Which would be an easy argument to make.)
So what is it that she finds so objectionable about Javi's newfound literary aspirations?
The most likely explanation is that Javi has information that Kailyn would prefer to keep private.
Of course, that's probably the case with a lot of people, as there's a lot that Kailyn would like to keep to herself.
We're beginning reality star wasn't the best choice of career for her.
