If the following sentences are both correct, do they mean the same thing?
Also, are there other ways to say this?
1) Word has it (that) John has a mistress.
2) Rumour has it (that) John has a mistress.
The first is slang, so it might mean anything you want it to mean. But in general, both terms mean the same.
The use of a term like slang is misleading, what you mean is it's something outside your own vernacular. It's perfectly acceptable over here and would not be considered a slang term.
