Do we have any legal recourse for a gossiping landlord who tells certain tenants about other tenant's personal business?

Question Details: We are not to educated on the rights of a landlord to gossip and tell other tenants our personal information. Does the landlord have the right to discuss with other tenants notices given to other tenants? The landlord has shared her opinion with other residents that we complained to the property owner about her. We were inform by one of the tenants that the landlord had prepared a 30 day "get out" notice in retaliation for her thinking that we went to the property owner. We beat her to it by giving notice so we never received it. This sort of stuff seems confidential to me and her actions appear to be an invasion of privacy. I have audio recordings of a tenant admitting that she knows everything that goes on here because the landlord has told her. Do we have any legal recourse?
