I've never heard of gossip being made plural when it is used in this sense. So I would say the following: There is gossip going around. There's gossip going around. Some gossip is going around. There's gossip going around that . . . (The sense in which "gossips" is commonly used is when it refers to people who gossip a lot. For example, "The teachers in this school are a bunch of gossips!")
