Is no Hollywood romance safe? After a summer of break-ups, divorces and cancelled engagements, not even the love between Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog could last. ‘The Muppets’ couple announced their split during an Aug. 4 Television Critics Association event!
Love is dead! Or, it’s just really, really sick. When the romance between a pig and a frog cannot last, what hope is there for anyone? The Muppets most famous duo, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, announced that they have officially called it quits, ending a relationship that lasted nearly 40 years!
During the Television Critics Association event on Aug. 4, the Muppets held a panel to announce their upcoming ABC television show, The Muppets. During the panel, Kermit fielded questions about the status of his relationship. The leader of The Muppets confirmed that he and Miss Piggy had “officially split,” and that he’s currently dating a new pig named Denise who works in marketing at ABC!
Miss Piggy seemed to be taking the break-up in stride. She told the audience at the TCA panel that “any kind of attention is good publicity!” and that she’s glad that Kermit and [she] are broken up!” The couple released an official statement, saying that after “considerable squabbling,” they made the “difficult decision” to terminate their relationship!
Oh no! Miss Piggy and Kermit began their romance back in 1976 during the original run of The Muppet Show. The two were reportedly married in 1984, during in the closing scene of The Muppets Take Manhattan. However, Miss Piggy revealed in an interview with Canadian Living that the priest had been defrocked and that the two never officially tied the knot.
Fans of The Muppets were clearly devastated by the news that their favorite couple has broken up. They shared their grief online, wondering if Kermit and Piggy will ever get back together or if this was really the end!
