Heidi Montag Reflects on Her Controversial Plastic Surgery: 'It Was Really Challenging'
Heidi Montag made national headlines in 2010 when she underwent 10 cosmetic procedures in one day
Ahead of the upcoming launch of The Hills: New Beginnings, Montag, 32, opened up about the highs and lows of filming the iconic reality show.
“I think in my mind, looking back, the hardest scene for me to watch is when I had my surgery and I go back to Colorado to talk to my mom about it for the first time,” she told Vogue in a new feature.
Cameras rolled as Montag faced her family for the first time after her surgery. “Are you telling me you don’t think I look good?” she asked. “Maybe you should rephrase the question,” her mom responded.
“It was really challenging and I was in so much pain, I could hardly talk,” she told Vogue. “I was so young and I just didn’t, like, have a team behind me.”
Despite any painful memories, Montag said she doesn’t regret her time on the show.
“A lot of good came out of the original show,” she said. “My favorite moment was when Spencer [Pratt] and I eloped in Mexico…After we got married, and even when we’d just gotten together, Spencer and I weren’t really able to be a part of the group on the original show. Now, with the reboot, we’re integrated with the rest of the cast.”
The Hills: New Beginnings was announced in August, when a handful of cast members reunited on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards. The revival, set to premiere in 2019, will reunite original cast members, alongside their children, friends and some new faces, and follow their personal and professional lives while living in Los Angeles.
