Blythe Holbrooke discusses her book, “Gossip” which she describes as informal communication. Blythe states that people gossip, but do not truly understand the politics of talk. Ultimately, bad rumors can destroy lives. The book describes how to stop bad gossip and how to deal with it. She states that good friends are critical to counter slander. One of the cardinal rules of gossip - never bring bad news about their significant other. Generally, bad news that one cannot handle will result in a dissolved relationship. Besides writing, Blythe's day job is a news reporter.
