If you found out the your MIL was talking badly about you behind your back, because one of their friends slipped up and said some of the stuff she mentioned to them. Then another individuals confirmed that she has been doing this for quite sometime making rude comments about: not be able to attend certain events because you already have other family plans, joking about my adoption choice made during my teen years, and belittling me as a mother because of my PPD after their first grandchild.
She will try to act all chummy to my face which at first I thought was guiune, until She started talking bad about me to my husband. When confronted she says that we misunderstood and that she has not been making these comments. Which I know is a lie since other people would not know this information unless she told them. So there seems to be no way to settle this gossiping way and get back to a somewhat trust worthy relationship with them.
Should I limit the time that she spends with her my DD, because I am not sure what comments she will be making to her while they are together. Any suggestions on how to proceed with situation?

It sounds like you are describing my MIL. I have limited my children's time with her because, yes, she was saying the same hateful lies around them. I would advise you to do the same. Good luck.
