Heidi Montag's Mom Struggling to Pay BillsHeidi Montag and Spencer Pratt recently admitted to blowing $10 million on their Hollywood lifestyle, but for other members of their family, there was no life of luxury to begin with.

Montag's mother, Darlene Egelhoff, who made a few guest appearances on 'The Hills,' tells PEOPLE she is struggling to make ends meet with her job as a maid.

"The work is sporadic and competitive. [It] is not enough to pay the bills."

Egelhoff, who co-owned the popular restaurant Timberlines with husband Tim in Montag's hometown of Crested Butte, Colorado, says that the family is barely scraping by after they were forced to close up shop after 21 years in business.
