This is just a general comment. If you ever hear that someone said something about you, before you repeat it or believe it as gospel, you might want to check directly with the person who the comment was attributed do. This would be true especially if the *gossiper* did not particularly like the *gossipp-ee*. Hard to believe, isn't it?
It's just a good rule of thumb, because believe it or not - people don't always tell the truth. *gasp*
