There Goes Our Childhood: Kermit & Miss Piggy Are Breaking Up


Fresh off the news that Will & Jada aren’t ending their marriage, another pair is calling it quits.

Miss Piggy and her longterm bae Kermit announced they’d ended their relationship after “thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling.”

The pair posted similar statements on Facebook about the split. Here’s what Miss Piggy had to say about their breakup:

After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have 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… unless we get the right offer. Thank you for your understanding.

Tuesday, the former couple appeared on a panel at the Television Critics Association to discuss their upcoming show, The Muppets, which premieres in September. Despite their split, Miss Piggy and Kermit said they’ll still work together.

“It is entirely professional,” Kermit said of his relationship with Miss Piggy. “I am taking a behind-the-scenes role — we’re both professional adults.”

Ever the firecracker, Miss Piggy added: “I have no problem working with my ex … dating moi is like flying close to the sun. It was inevitable Kermit would drop down to the Earth and I would stay close to the heavens.”

    LOL. This is a very funny story. I never imagined both of them breaking up.

      I’m glad they broke up-lol. I love them both, but Miss Piggy has always been abusive to Kermit and maybe he just got tired of it. Good for him.

        LOL. In retrospect, it was inevitable for them to break up because of many reasons. It took a long time though.

        I hope Kermit has a yard sale with all of Miss Piggy’s Coach purses and designer dresses, AND maxes out her credit cards, all the while singing “And fellas….if your bacon wants to go hog-wild, y’know you gotta hit ’em up style!”

          LOL! And sell all that stuff for $1 each. It’s a darn shame Kermit is the only male I can think of that I’m rooting for to get even in a relationship. I bet that heifer ( or sow?) made him sign a pre-nup too.

            Nah, but they never got married! She just kept the drama flowing. She probably would ask for a ring, then break up just before he popped the question, and keep the cycle going. Or use the Muppet Show cancellations as an excuse not to get married. I hope they finally bring in Scooter’s sister from Muppet Babies, and THEN maybe Kermit can have a REAL relationship, instead of that trifling, truffle-hunting sow!

    Their relationship was doomed from the beginning—- a pig and a frog. I know Miss Piggy’s parents didn’t like it when she brought Kermit to the pen.

    What!? No! I mean, I heard rumors, but I always thought they’d work it out. If they can’t make it last forever, is there hope for any of us???

      I feel you.

    I heard she was sleeping with Link Hogthrob (Pigs in Space). I mean, it’s not like Kermit’s got that sausage though. #porktheotherwhitemeat
