|Is Elizabeth a*gasp* gossip?

I have to wonder why, why, WHY she relates Mr. Darcy's slight over and over again (admittedly with "great spirit" and "some exaggeration")????
I think she is being uncommonly rude to repeat something she overheard knowing full well it will prejudice her community against a newcomer. Is her pride so fragile that she can't help herself?
I love Elizabeth, but this one action reminds me too much of her mother, the silly gossip who can't hold her tongue. I guess like her father she too is an "odd mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humor...and caprice."
