Speaking of Sandra Bullock, celebrities and the evil of gossip, I saw this tweet:

RT @GeoffsWife1962 Check this video out — Patricia Rossi’s Gossip Mannershttp://youtu.be/

My favorite quote from Patricia Rossi in this video is: “My favorite retort to to gossip is ‘Oh, lord. I have way too much to fix in myself than to use my time and energy talking about Myrna.'”

So it seems gossiping is not in good manners. Whether you’re sharing it, reading it, or listening to it, you’re reinforcing this bad behavior. In fact, Rossi says, “…instead of gossiping, or worse, listening to gossip….” Listening just reinforces the gossip in the first place.

Are you still going to read those tasteless magazines that trash celebrities?
