Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have broken up.
Yes, that’s the sad plot line of the new “Muppets” show which is set to air on ABC in September. Even more astounding, Kermit seems to have already traded Miss Piggy in for a newer, younger model.
People obtained photos of Kermit’s new girlfriend on the show, Denise, a hot red-headed piglet. Denise is reportedly the head of marketing at ABC.
Don’t feel too sad for Miss Piggy, though. People reports that she’s been hanging around actor and ex to Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth. And “The Hunger Games” actor is set to make a guest appearance on “The Muppets.”
The breakup is a brilliant marketing ploy on ABC’s part to hype up the show before it airs. The “Muppets” is being positioned as a funny “Office-style” show that may not always be family-friendly. It treats the characters everyone knows and loves like real people and ABC is giving the muppets the kinds of dramatic plot lines that typically flare up in reality TV shows.
We weren’t sure how to reach Kermit or Miss Piggy for comment.
