Well, Kermit the Frog wasted absolutely no time moving on from Miss Piggy.
The Muppets stars only just announced their split in August -- "After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” Kermit explained in a statement -- but he already has a new girlfriend, Denise.
Though now he denies it:
Sheesh. I can't believe I already have to do this again... Here is the official statement on my relationship status: pic.twitter.com/gRCyl3xbfz
When we exclusively spoke to the amphibian actor, 60, we asked if he had a new girlfriend. “I do, I’m very happy about that,” he revealed. “I don’t often mention her in interviews, because she’s not a celebrity. I don’t want to bring her into the limelight. Her name is Denise and I’ll just say she is the head of marketing for ABC."
We were first introduced to Denise in the 10-minute sizzle reel for the ABC series, though at the time, she looked...hmm. Different.
Anyway, Twitter has wasted no time throwing shade Denise’s way:
MISS PIGGY! You can’t be sliding into anyone’s DMs like this!
ET also confirmed that Liam Hemsworth will appear on The Muppets. “Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry,” he captioned an Instagram photo with Miss Piggy. So maybe she upgraded too.
