The show will take a look at what things are like now, "and then we're going to take a look back at this show and reveal things that we haven't talked about before," Conrad promises.

"I was in way over my head with the surgeries," Pratt, 29, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I had no idea what I was getting into or that it was a lifelong commitment. It was very challenging, both physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, on my husband and on our lives."
In fact, Pratt, 29, admits, "It was a huge turning point for us in such a negative way. There was a fallout with The Hills and a lot of backlash with the things we were doing. We spent more money and it was so unnecessary. Sometimes I can't believe I did that to us and to me. It's been a lot to overcome."
