"People say DeCicco murdered his first wife, that actress
Thelma Todd. Wonder how he got Gloria to marry him. She’s
just a kid in her teens, and he’s so much older, in his thirties.”
I continued to sit with my head down in my book, as they
chatted on—about my mother (saying hateful things) and
Auntie Ger (who came out swell), but always returning to
DeCicco and me.

Rainbow Comes and Goes
by Anderson Cooper, Gloria Vanderbilt

What does 'come out swell' mean in this context?
Does it mean get positive comment or appear stylishly in public?

Please help. Thank you.
