A Humbled Heidi Montag Says She's Experienced A 'Self-Awakening' [Video]

A lobotomy and the "Men In Black" memory-erasing pen wouldn't be enough to strike Heidi Montag's plastic surgery-reveal during the last season of "The Hills" from viewers' minds. Fans of the show were concerned about Heids, who seemed to have changed since they first met her as a sprightly teen, and rightfully so. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Heidi confessed she and husband Spencer Pratt got caught up in the fleeting limelight of reality TV and wound up blowing most of their money on needless expenses. She says she's changed, though, and after some serious self-reflection--and a necessary reunion with her mom--maintains it's onward and upward from here.

"I’ve really just taken these years since 'The Hills' and kind of been on my own journey," Heidi says in the video below after breaking her silence on the pain plastic surgery caused . "[Spencer and I] just kind of stepped back and have been able to reflect on who we’ve been, where we want to go and who we want to be and what we want in our lives; and it wasn’t the path we were going down. So, we just kind of changed back to who we originally were."

"I certainly never thought I would become the person that I was," she added.
