* 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.

* Everybody, regardless of gender, in ''{{The Rules of Attraction}}''. And most characters in ''{{Less Than Zero}}''. And in ''Literature/{{Glamorama}}''. Can't forget ''{{American Psycho}}''. Anything written by {{Bret Easton Ellis}}, really.

* In ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh'', Jessica and her clique, and the Unicorns in the ''Twins'' series. True to form, twin sister Elizabeth decries this kind of behavior--to ''her'' friends, in her usual hypocritical style.

** There is also [[TheGhost East-Side Tilly]], their off-screen rival with whom they openly compete in regards to this trope. They occasionally comment on taking delight in beating her to a juicy piece of gossip or shame at her knowing something before either of them.

* At first, [[HugeSchoolgirl Miki Hosokawa]] from ''Manga/HellTeacherNube''. She's still gossipy later, but not as much as she used to. Not to mention she's a bit of a subversion: despite being a gossip hen, Miki ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards does]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards feel bad when she sees one of her neighbors spread downright hurtful rumors]] that make people upset, and she vows to not reach such extremes. [[spoiler: When a ghost tricks her friends into believing she ''is'' spreading mean lies as well as the secrets they confided in her, Miki is genuinely hurt at how angry they get at her and, after a brief HeroicBSOD, tries to clear her name. When she's succesful, the ghost tries to kill her and has to be exorcised by Nuubee.]]
