Gossiping, it's only natural.

Women's apparent need to gossip is apparently natural. According to a new book, ladies have a basic evolutionary need to voice concerns about others to their peers. John L. Locke wrote in Duels and Duets that the desire stems from a deeper need to protect the community they live in. He explained, "One study of gossip showed that gossipers were concerned about women who are bad housekeepers, and women who are bad mothers, and women who are promiscuous. Those things are all threats to each woman in a community; therefore they have every good reason to want to talk about those things." My Aunt BeBe always said: "If you don't have anything nice to say... Come sit next to me!" LOL
