New York: Heidi Montag’s mother Darlene Egelhoff has revealed that her star daughter does not know that she is working as a maid.

In fact, Egelhoff said the economic recession has forced her to switch careers entirely.

A former restaurateur, Egeloff told "Inside Edition" that she`s now a maid.

Egelhoff explained to the TV`s show Jim Moret that when the restaurant she and her husband owned for 21 years closed suddenly, they couldn`t pay the bills. The only employment she found in Crested Butte, Colo. was housekeeping, reports the New York Daily News.

When asked if she thinks Montag knows her mother`s current situation, a tearful Egelhoff replied, "No, I don`t," explaining that they haven``t talked in almost nine months.
