Now that they're friends, G regrets those initial jabs.

Heather Dubrow and Gretchen Rossi of The Real Housewives of Orange County
Sure, Gretchen Rossi "loves" Heather Dubrow now, but these Real Housewives of Orange County didn't exactly get off on the right stiletto. "When I first met [Heather], she seemed a little pretentious to me. I think the exact words out of my mouth were, 'I think you have a stick up your ass,'" Gretchen confesses to UsWeekly. Oops. "It didn't go over quite well when I first started with her."

Then there was also the issue of the new girl calling G "cute." (The horror!) "At the party I called [Gretchen] cute a couple of times. She let Slade know this was not OK, and he thought I was jealous of her. Hmmmm. First of all, I know cute is a four letter word, but when did it become a 'FOUR LETTER WORD'!?!" Heather rehashed in her blog.

And – who can forget? – Gretchen poked fun at Heather's multiple "I'm an actress" deliveries. "To my defense, unless you are truly an A-list actor, people aren't going to know your name," Gretchen continues explaining to UsWeekly.

But thankfully all of that nitty grittiness was curable with a little bunco party action and racing in the mud together. "I feel so bad because the new Housewife Heather Dubrow is actually the sweetest girl ever," Gretchen now says. "I really got to know her and really like her a lot."
