Image Credit: MTVAnyone who watches The Hills knows star Heidi Montag and her mother, Darlene, have seen their relationship strained by Montag’s relationship with Spencer Pratt — and the reality star’s physical transformation after multiple plastic surgeries. Tonight, on The Hills, Darlene and daughter, Holly, talk about this difficult time and Darlene reveals that she feels as if she’s lost her daughter. “I just feel like she can’t live in two worlds and that she feels like she has to choose between us and Spencer,” Darlene tells Holly. She adds, “I haven’t slept for months. I had to go and get a prescription for sleeping pills just to be able to go to sleep at night to the point where I didn’t even know how I would make it another day. I’ve been mourning the loss of a child and, yeah, it hurts. It hurts more than I thought I could hurt. I can’t live like that. I have to know in my heart that I did everything I thought I could do.”

File this under: when reality shows turn sad. Will you tune in tonight to watch, PopWatchers? Has Heidi’s mom done all she could to repair this relationship? And how much longer until this whole saga just doesn’t quite feel like “entertainment” anymore?
