Holland tells us a honcho from B.F. told her she violated patient confidentiality and was therefore terminated from her job as a chemical dependency tech, which paid $1,784.74 a month.

Holland says she told the official, "I didn't feel you had my back. When you placed me on administrative leave you were investigating me, and 9 times out of 10 that means the employee will be fired."

Holland says the official responded, "We wanted you to keep this quiet."

As for why Holland spoke with TMZ, she says, "The story was already way out there in the open before I spoke.  If Lindsay is allowed to say, 'Fire that bitch,' I should be able to defend myself."

She should be selling all her interviews from now on thru her atorney. If lindsay was drinking, late and lashing out she deserves to go directly to jail, do not colletct $200.

I believe every word of it. Lindsay Lohan really is a D bag. It is her sense of entitlement that is going to do her in.

Nobody is going to want to work with her, she's damaged goods.

and she deserves it. How stupid is this woman to talk to the press about not only her case but about a high profile client at Betty Ford. She signed a confidentiality agreement. ... Some people are just dumb.

So, does this patient confidentiality include not telling the judge? They can't ruin their reputation. Oh, too late.

Michael Lohan is all over the news bashing Betty Ford for exploiting Lindsay. Ummm, yeah, pot calling the kettle black, Mr. Loser Lohan?

Hey Michael Lohan. Yeah, what the Betty Ford employee did was pretty bad; however, it's even worse when a father exploits their child/children. You are the last person who should be speaking about confidentiality.

Nobody has a bigger mouth than Michael and Dina Lohan. Then again, that's there only source of income.

Guys she was probably going to be fired anyway. That's why she decided to talk to TMZ. She wants to be a celebrity and get money out of this. Best way to do it is get on camera and talk before she's released from her job.

@Quinn
Exactly she got fired AFTER speaking to TMZ so she just broke the confidentiality agreement while she was still an employee and ruined her case.
