If you want a legit answer that will help you mature into a better person and help you understand life in the long run, ignore it. If your friends are so quick to believe and spread rumors and jump ships they really never were your friends. Sure, you have fun together, I myself have people like that. We meet up, go out to dance and drink, but I wouldn't trust them with my secrets or fears or personal life. That's just how life is. There will always be people who cannot mature past the high school level drama fixation, and you don't need that in your life, now or otherwise.
Sure, it feel's like the end of the world now because right now, your whole world is school. I assure you, that will pass and you'll realize how trivial worrying about it is. If you want some new friends, maybe some real friends, pick a hobby you really enjoy and join a club or group and make friends there. I've found that the best of friends always come when you are embracing and empowering yourself, because they are drawn to you as you are, not the you as the world tells them to view you.
As far as the rumors go, if people come to you about it and ask why it doesn't seem to phase you, my sri taught me a lesson once that has stuck with me through ages: "What other people think of you is none of your business, and therefore none of your baggage." All that matters in the end is that you are doing what is best for you and makes you happiest. People come and go, but you will always be there for yourself, so you need to fortify the bond with yourself.
This person is a steretyopical bully, and the best way to deal with them is to ignore them and never let them see that they are getting to you. She is snickering and pointing from down the hallway in your direction? Slap on a smile and walk past her like she doesn't exist. She sends friends to talk **** to your face? Giggle with them, suck it up, and move on. Eventually they will find new prey, because when they stop getting a reaction from you, picking on you is no longer fun.
And I suggest that when they do move on to try and destroy someone else's high school life because that's what they think is cool now, you remember this moment and reach out to that person and offer them tips to get around it and maybe build a true friendship.
