"Futebol, mulher do vizinho e política dá/dão muito o que falar".

 

If I had to say it , I would say:

Football, the neighbour's wife and politics give you a lot to talk about.

While the Americans may not talk much about football , they will, like any other species of the human race, find much to talk about the neighbour's wife, her lovers, her ghastly hairdo and whether Obama is going to end up with Hillary and Bill ( de carona), among other equally enticing subjects.

I feel however that you, Marcio, could easily have translated this yourself. I went for it because of the five.
