Off-topic:
Couldn't "hablé" be used instead of "estaba hablando"?

Yes, but I thought the preterite should be used when saying you're talking to someone. The "I was talking" could also simply be said using "hablaba" without using the "estar"-verb, but I don't think the imperfect shall be used when saying you're talking to someone.

But I'm pretty new in the Spanish language myself, so yes, let's wait for someone who knows their way around it.

@ eldanés
You can use both, "hablé" or "estaba hablando" or "hablaba", but it's better in this context "estaba hablando" because it's near in the past

@soyricogringo
Perhaps "echar" here it's another way to say "tirar"
"no te tires mentiras" it's a way to say "stop throwing/shooting lies"

Hola
Hoy estaba hablando con una amiga mía y ella me dijo que dejara de echar mentiras.
Yo sé que quiso decir pero ¿Porqué usó ella la palabra "echar"?
Saludos

Como dijo Sosia, eches se deletrea sin la 'h' al principio.

No me eches mentiras = don't heap lies on me (don't lie to me)
echar = to heap, add, throw, etc.
echa = command form, 2nd person (heap)
no eches = negated command form, 2nd person (don't heap)

Abajo corregí lo que escribiste. Espero no te moleste.

When I was a kid and studying spelling at school, my Mum taught me this mnemonic rule to remember there is no h in echar.It seems silly now, but it helped back then:
ECHAR ECHA A LA H.
