* Patty and Selma from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. They are indistinguishable in personality, have identical voices, and exist entirely to say belittling things. Especially if it's about Homer.
** Indistinguishable in personality except for their love lives...

* 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.

* 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.
