Days after telling Access Hollywood'sBilly Bush that her mother, Darlene Eglehoff, loved her new post-plastic surgery look, Heidi Montag is now claiming her mom is upset over what she's done to herself.
Heidi told People magagazine, in an article published online on Thursday, that she is fearful to return home to Colorado, something which will apparently be done on camera for an upcoming episode of MTV's "The Hills."
"I still can't believe I'm 23 and Mom is reacting this way," she told the mag. "I'm nervous to go home and face her – especially with cameras rolling."
A source close to the family also told People that Darlene "is horrified and having a total breakdown. She can't wait to confront Heidi when she goes home."
In Monday's interview with Billy, however, Heidi said she showed her mom her People cover from last week, and her mother was supportive.
"I spoke to my mom the other day and she said the cover looked beautiful," Heidi told Billy. "She said, obviously she loved me the way I was and she would never tell me to do anything, but that she always supports whatever my decision is."
And Heidi's plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson on Tuesday, that it was his understanding that Darlene too wanted to go under the knife.
"Her mother on the other hand, saw the pictures and called Heidi right away and said, 'Heidi, I want him to do a mommy makeover for me… Can you arrange that?'" he told Shaun.
And he claimed that her mother wanted the surgery soon.
"For Valentine's Day," Dr. Ryan claimed. "Heidi may buy it for her for Valentine's Day."
When contacted by Access Hollywood on Thursday, Darlene said she hasn't spoken with People, nor has she read her daughter's "Addicted To Plastic Surgery" cover story from last week.
Darlene added anything between mom and daughter is "strictly between them" and she does not give interviews to the media.
