    Re: scandal, rumor and gossip

    A scandal is something that has been made public and has gotten someone in hot water especially in the sense of damaging his reputation.

    A rumor is a story that has been circulating. It has yet to be confirmed whether it is true or not.

    Gossip is conversation about people. It often concerns stories that may or may not be true.
