Heidi Montag has patched everything up with her mother, who was said to have been “horrified and having a total breakdown” after learning that her 23 year-old daughter had a whopping 10 plastic surgery procedures at once. Now Heidi’s mom will have a cat-like face to match her daughters, as Heidi promised her mom the gift of plastic surgery during their reunion – which was all filmed for Heidi’s “reality” show, “The Hills.”
Heidi scored a spot on Nightline with her story a full two weeks after she graced the cover of People Magazine. It must takes Nightline a while to set up their segments, because they featured interview footage that was aired on Good Morning America last week. It’s clear Heidi is getting some media mileage out of her new plastic look:
Heidi Montag’s mom, Darlene Egelhoff, not only was supportive of her daughter’s plastic surgery transformation but will be undergoing her own as a Mother’s Day gift, Heidi told ‘Nightline’ Tuesday night.
Last week People reported that Darlene was “horrified” and “having a total breakdown” over Heidi’s ten surgeries. Not so, Heidi tells ‘Nightline.’
“She says, ‘Whatever makes you happy,’” Heidi said. “And ‘Great,’ and, ‘I could definitely see your boobs looking incredible bigger,’ and you know, my mom’s very … supportive about whatever makes you happy in life.”
Heidi’s surgeon refuses to do any more procedures on her, but the reality star is hoping she can convince him to work on her mom.
“Actually, she was excited for me and she’s asking me … for her surgery next,” said Heidi. “So for Mother’s Day, I have to ask Dr. Frank Ryan if he’ll do the mommy makeover.”

I’m thinking all the drama with Heidi’s mom was manufactured to squeeze out some more air time for Heidi, and it worked. The story about how Heidi’s mom was “horrified” at her daughter’s new face was the most viewed story on People Magazine’s website for a few days last week. As I’ve said before, I have nothing against plastic surgery if it’s done right and sparingly, although sadly it also attracts young people like Heidi who try and use it as a cure-all for their insecurities. She’ll be stuck with that older fake-looking face for the rest of her life and all the publicity surely didn’t help her album sales. Pretty soon she’ll be dissatisfied with her current results and asking for changes. If her current plastic surgeon won’t do it, she’ll find someone who will.
