Vicki Gunvalson is having a hard time believing her Real Housewives of Orange County costars Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney have truly buried the hatchet.

In her  official Bravo blog, the 49-year-old admits she was surprised to see the former foes making amends during the Season 7 premiere Tuesday.

"Watching Gretchen and Tamra go to lunch and discuss their past issues was interesting to me. How can Gretchen just put the past behind her and simply forgive Tamra for all the hurt she has put her and Slade through?"

Gunvalson says that Rossi, 33, has said "it was easier to forgive then keep fighting. Maybe that's a lesson for all of us. I just don't know if I could do have done it."

The Bravo star also scoffed when Barney, 43, presented Rossi with a peace offering.

"While I was watching Tamra give Gretchen a friendship bracelet with a key on it and 'locking up the past and entering a new future,' I thought, 'What the heck is going on here?'"

When Rossi visited Us Weekly's New York City offices Monday, she hinted that loyalties will change throughout the show's seventh season.

"At the beginning of this season you actually see Tamra and I coming together and trying to bury the hatchet," Rossi said. "We start to realize who our true friends are, who's a little shady, or who's doing something that seems a little weird."
