Heidi Montag has married Spencer Pratt a bunch of times, but her true love is plastic surgery, and her secret crush was the man who operated on her.
One of the late Dr. Frank Ryan's close friends, Dawn DaLuise, takes issue with Heidi's claim that he pressured her into her hilarious major makeover.
"I believe she had a crush on him," the celebrity plastic surgeon's pal said. "She was romantically obsessed. She saw him as a night in shining armor."

To hear Heidi Montag tell it now, Dr. Ryan - who died in a car accident after driving off a cliff in Malibu - wanted the poor thing "to be his Barbie doll."
DaLuise said it was Heidi who made the Barbie comment.
"He sent texts and emails saying she wanted to be Barbie, to look exactly like Barbie," DaLuise said, adding that Ryan tried to talk the plastic surgery addict OUT of getting DDD breasts, a brow lift, a nose job, lipo, butt augmentation, etc.
