<Spin> it to polish your own halo

Two famous singers were going to marry but the woman backed out of it. Then the woman made a statement to reporters.

The man's manager says to the man after watching the woman's interview:

Unbelievable. She calls it off and spins it to polish her own halo.

(Nashville)

What is the definition for "spin" here?

"Tell a story/tale" or "describe it in a certain way to influence what people think about it" as in "spinning the results to your own benefit"?

Both have made sense to me.

Thanks for your help.
