A gossiper is someone who talks enthusiastically and casually about other people. If you like to spread rumors and hear the latest news about your friends, you might be a snooper. When you gossip, you talk enthusiastically about other people's news or businesses. Doing so regularly is gossiping.
Gossip involves talking to another person to spread rumors about a person or situation. Sometimes it's mundane everyday information, but when gossip includes elements of sexual relations or infidelity, known as juicy gossip, it can be particularly hurtful and harmful. Sure, we like to think of our daily conversations as strictly productive exchanges of ideas and debates about life's unanswered questions, but in reality, we're all talking about other people.
