Say it ain’t so! First Blake and Miranda, then Ben and Jen, now Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Just when we thought we couldn’t take any more heartbreak, our favorite Muppet couple has called it quits.
Kermit made the separation public on his Facebook page stating:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship. We will continue to work together on television (“The Muppets”/Tuesdays 8pm this fall on ABC) and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe. However, our personal lives are now distinct and separate, and we will be seeing other people, pigs, frogs, et al. This is our only comment on this private matter. Thank you for your understanding.”
The couple has been working together for as long as we can remember, and they’ll continue to during The Muppets, which premieres, Tuesday September 22, 8|7c on ABC (Talk about awkward.)
While we’re not all that surprised that Kermit and Miss Piggy’s relationship has ended (they were constantly seen bickering), we’re a bit shocked by how fast the Frog is moving on.
Both actors appeared at a Television Critics Association panel where it was revealed Kermit has a new girlfriend.

Denise, if you know anything about Miss Piggy’s history, it’d be wise to watch your back. However, Piggy appears confident and surprisingly isn’t showing any of the jealous rage we usually expect from her.
"Dating moi is like flying close too the sun. It was inevitable that Kermit would drop down to the ground while I stayed in the heavens."

We wish the best for both Kermit and Miss Piggy, and hope Hollywood learns to love again some time soon.
