It just means gossiping. talking about someone who is not present at the moment and mainly talking would be not good or accepted by the gossiped one.

Saying something opposite when the person is not there. Usually used to represent something negative. For example, Your friend telling all the nice things about you in front of you, but when you are not with her she tells bad things about you.
