* A historical example: Eustace Chapuys, Imperial ambassador to the court of [=Henry VIII=], went ''far'' beyond the requirements of his job to pass on every hint of gossip traveling through the Tudor court, no matter how far-fetched. Even among professional historians he's sometimes referred to as the "King of Gossip", as his letters to Charles V constitute the most extensive and valuable surviving chronicle of a pre-modern English royal court; even historians who criticize Chapuys's bias are forced to admit the value of his observations.
* Hair salons are like a gossip congregation.
* High School girls, especially if they're part of a GirlPosse.
** Not just girls: guys of all ages can also be ''scaringly'' gossip happy when they want to.

* 2Ch Tanuki. Not AlwaysFemale (since it's a VisualKei related community, expect {{GIRL}} to be in full effect as well as the occasional rocker wandering in to [[TooDumbToLive defend himself]] or [[ItsPersonal bash someone else]] along with the {{Fan Girl}}s doing it). If you want the latest in VisualKei gossip, go there - but beware that the level of truth can vary from 100 percent true to absolute BlatantLies.
* Pretty much anyone who works in entertainement-related media, specially if they're celebrities and/or reporters commenting on the latest celebrities scandals.
* Almost any job field you're in are bound to have at least one person who will spread gossip about their boss(es) or co-workers.

* Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/MurderAtTheVicarage'' had three old ladies (the "old pussies") who seemed like this. One of them turned out to be sharper than she looked - her name? [[Literature/MissMarple Miss Jane Marple]].

* Mrs. Tachibana and her group of friends from ''Manga/HotGimmick''. Hence why Hatsumi completely panics when her son Ryoki sees the morning-after pill she had just bought for her sister Akane, and then tells him to do what he wants to her in exchange of keeping the deal secret: being the wife of the landlord, Ryoki's mom can ''very'' easily tell Ryoki's dad that Hatsumi's family is not a good influence on the residents, which would lead to Hatsumi's father being laid off ''and'' them being evicted and losing everything.

* One of the best examples of this trope in any Mexican telenovela comes from the set-in-high-school ''El Juego de la Vida'' with the character Cinthia, who was a mean girl, a BetaBitch to one of the main villains and also TheDitz, but her most prominent character feature was being the biggest gossip in school, a trait that she wouldn't hesitate to take advantage of to help her best friend [[AlphaBitch Tania]] make a living hell out of the lives of the four main characters.

* ''LastOfTheSummerWine''. The format in the late 80s and 90s was essentially that halfway through the episode, the ladies would meet up to discuss the men's latest ZanyScheme, sometimes including GossipEvolution. The punchline was that they would all drink their tea simultaneously.

* The Misses Enid and Eulalia from ''ThisHourHas22Minutes'', and their predecessors, the two Margs from ''{{Codco}}''.
* Taken quite literally in ''BigBarnBarn'': As the [[ThemeTuneRollCall theme song]] says, the Mrs. Chickens "gossip, gossip all day long."

* The Hetebrink sisters of ''{{Amen}}''. Thelma as well, though not as bad. Most of the church ladies, in fact, including the unseen mother of neighbor boy Chris, making him an example of this as well.
