Despite a longstanding feud originating with their co-starring roles in 1984's The Muppets Take Manhattan, fans will be happy to know that Miss Piggy and Joan Rivers managed to bury the hatchet.
"Moi is deeply saddened by the passing of my friend and fellow legend, Joan Rivers," Miss Piggy said in a statement on Thursday. "From our first appearance together as battling make-up counter girls in The Muppets Take Manhattan to our recent appearances together on QVC (Joan called it 'The Thrilla in Manolos'), we were always two of a kind. I will miss her. Can we talk? You bet we can, Joan! Forever and ever!"
Earlier this year, QVC posted a video documenting the feud between the two divas.
Rivers passed away at 81 on Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital, where she had been taken last week after losing consciousness during an outpatient surgery. The legendary comedienne rose to prominence in a comedy world dominated by men, using "Can we talk?" as her catch phrase, which usually preceded a good-natured skewering.
