WTF should anyone care? If she hates kissing her smoking husband, divorce him instead of using it as a PR moment.

Sheri, you retarded broad! This proves that you fail to read the full stories! Jason Segel is her TELEVISION husband on the sitcom they star in! How can she divorce him they're not married in real life? Her real husband is Alexis Denisof, but how would anyone expect you to know that when it's obvious that your stupid knee-jerk comments are fueled by emotion alone. And don't try to convince any of us here that what you actually meant was that she should ask the producers to write a divorce into the script in a futile effort to cover up your own asinine blunders!
Pay attention, ADD woman!

She is getting paid well enough, she should just chill. If, it is that much of a problem to her, she is free to quit, isn't she? What a whiner!!

K. I responded to a headline not worth reading a full story. You really need to do something about that anger problem. It will kill you.

SPIELBERGER TRAIT ANGER-TEMPERAMENT SUBSCALE

1. I am quick tempered.
2. I have a fiery temper.
3. I am a hotheaded person.
4. I fly off the handle.

SPIELBERGER TRAIT ANGER-REACTION SUBSCALE

1. I get angry when I am slowed down by others' mistakes.
2. I feel annoyed when I am not given recognition for doing good work.
3. It makes me furious when I am criticized in front of others.
4. I feel infuriated when I do a good job and get a poor evaluation.

This study suggests that a strong, angry temperament predisposes middle-aged, normotensive persons to a significantly greater risk of MI or sudden cardiac death than anger aroused in reaction to more circumscribed stimuli, e.g., frustration, criticism, or unfair treatment. These data also suggest that the tendency toward quick, unprovoked (or minimally provoked) anger may be as toxic to the cardiovascular system and have as detrimental a consequence as hypertension. Approximately 6 percent of the cohort reported having a strong, angry temperament, suggesting that this exposure is relatively infrequent. The adverse cardiovascular consequences of having a fiery temper, however, are quite dramatic.

Anger management may help to sever the link between this negative emotion and incident CHD. Results of at least two studies have demonstrated the efficacy of intervention (e.g., type A behavioral counseling, cardiac rehabilitation, and exercise training) to lower hostility/anger levels among patients with CHD (20Go, 21Go). These studies also showed that reducing hostility/anger could forestall the recurrence of events (20Go) and improve CHD risk factor profiles as well as overall quality of life (21Go). Similar studies are needed to determine the efficacy of intervention for the primary prevention of CHD.

Must be desperate for publicity for what I consider a mindless show, but hey, a pink slip across her mouth would grab headlines also. OK, I don't know who she or her pretend hubby is but who cares, axe the show for all I care

If you work with a person whom always has breath that smells like ass and whose body odor wreaks of old, stale sweat, are you going to be like "oh, okay" when someone else tells you to either 1) deal with it or 2) quit your job if you don't like it?

I think anyone with a practical mind can see that Hannigan was simply venting about something that she can't stand -- as we all do. I don't know if you're a smoker or not (I am left to assume that you are or were at some point), but people who smoke a cigarette and don't brush their teeth and gargle with mouthwash soon after the fact have WRETCHED breath. Having to talk to one of those up close is bad enough. I can't imagine having to kiss one.

And sometimes brushing and gargling doesn't get rid of the stench. Instead, it's like taking a wicked powerdump and spraying the bathroom with cheap air freshener. Epic fail!

The full story wasn't worth reading, but your out-of-context comment was somehow worth posting?

Yep. Did you read over that material about anger and heart attacks?

Who said it was anger? It was more along the lines of an acute disdain for slacktards such as yourself whom are afflicted with ADD and don't care much to do anything about it.

This is certainly true for everyone here. And considering that non-smokers are in the vast majority as opposed to your kind which dwindles away slowly in the minority, it would be even more probably that even more people can not imagine kissing you. After all, my breath always smells fresh and clean. What does your breath smell like after you suck in the tarry nastiness of a whole cigarette? What do your clothes smell like after you bask in the cloud of smoke that surrounds you whilst you puff your filth into the air? Even the mintiest mint or the strongest body spray won't conceal the putrid foulness that is the odor of a smoker. To think that you people purposefully do things to make yourselves smell like an unwiped ass is almost too much to fathom.

You stink just as bad as your ability to read an article headline.

SERIOUSLY, you need to calm down. Go brush your teeth with that minty stuff. You sound a bit like these women http://www2.potsdam.edu/hansondj/images/Prohi... with your hyperbolic nonsense. Take some deep, cleansing breaths...all better now?

Just curious about why you might have diagnosed me with ADD. Was it because I attacked the virtue of Buffy, your favorite tv personality? Perhaps Buffy needs to set her tv spouse straight and stand up to the producers of her show. DEMAND that the actor playing her husband either quit smoking or leave the show. Or, perhaps Buffy herself could leave to slay vampires elsewhere.

hell,you have no way of knowing how many folks smoke,its based upon a guessing game..........in my area of tenn kentucy the vast majority smoke in the realm of 60-80%...........you think our people want a ban..........hell no and its gonna be real hard to enforce it even if they wanted too.

Nice try to divert from my post... bottom line - she is an actress, nothing more, nothing less. If, she wants to b*tch about a co-star, she has always got the option to quit. But, as far as smokers having bad breath... I have met people with breath that could melt steel, and, they weren't smokers. Imagine that... a non-smoker with the breath of a dead camel!! lol (Btw, yes, I am an ex-smoker, but, I don't see what that has to do with the issue.)

Of course, IF YOU HAD READ THE ARTICLE you would know that Hannigan did not portray Buffy, but another character on that show. And that she's in an entirely different show now (the very popular "How I Met Your Mother.")

But I know that you don't let facts get in your way, Sheri, so please carry on...

So, you are saying the article is out of date and is irrelevant. What "facts" are present here? All I see is a PR moment to again try to denormalize and demonize smokers, portraying them as people that no one could love.
