And so she should be, if you ask us! Regardless of who the victim is in this scenario, it was completely unethical of her to run to the presses with her story.
We've just learned the Dawn Holland, the Betty Ford staffer who got into a kerfuffle with Lindsay Lohan this week, has been FIRED from her position at the clinic for telling her story to TMZ. According to Dawn, shortly after her interview broke on the website, she was called by the head of the clinic, who told her she was in violation of a patient confidentiality agreement and was thus terminated from her position. Dawn reveals that she scolded her superior for not having her back in this situation and called him out on placing her on administrative leave, which she insists "9 times out of 10 that means the employee will be fired."
Well, she got that right at least!
Dawn maintains that while the Betty Ford people wanted her to keep everything quiet, she was fervent about defending herself from what may have been said about her in the press. She explained:
"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."
Defend yourself, yes. Give a play-by-play that compromises everyone involved, including yourself, we think not.
