In this article about male friendships, there are two references to "dish":

"Well, what do you have for me?" Dish, she meant – like maybe some of that marital strife.


"What do you got for me? Any dish?"

I'm a pretty confident non-native speaker, and I know it refers to neither food nor plates and bowls nor antennas. Nor this sexist talk.

I'm pretty sure this is about gossip or something in that area but I couldn't find any sources.


Yes, it means gossip. See here.

    It seems that verbs may be nouned. – Edwin Ashworth Apr 23 '14 at 9:17
  • That only seems fair, since you seem to have verbed noun :) – naughtilus Jul 9 '14 at 8:55

It means should be patter. We can replace patter.
