Has Kermit The Frog Moved On From Miss Piggy With A New Muppet Girlfriend Denise?
Kermit the Frog is rumored to have moved on from longtime love Miss Piggy with ABC’s porcine head of marketing, Denise.
Does Kermit Have A New Girlfriend Denise?
Kermit and Denise have reportedly been acting very much a couple behind the scenes of Up Late, according to insiders. “She’s always stopping by the set of Up Late,” a source told People of Denise.
“He calls her his girlfriend,” the source added.
Despite the insider’s claims, there’s apparently little truth to reports of Kermit and Denise’s romantic relationship. Kermit addressed the gossip on Twitter, refuting the suggestion that he has a new girlfriend – though he did confirm that he’s dating.
“While I prefer to keep my personal life private, this is Hollywood, so who am I kidding?” reads Kermit’s official statement. “It is true that I am dating again. However, at this time no one woman – pig or otherwise – is my official ‘new girlfriend.’ We are simply close friends.”
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

As for Miss Piggy, she has plenty of options herself – including Star Trek‘s William Shatner and Liam Hemsworth.
Very much available, mon cher. Gimme a call! I’d love to boldly go where no pig has gone before. https://t.co/NB19FDgDJJ

Hemsworth captioned an Instagram picture with Miss Piggy, “Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry.”
Kermit and Miss Piggy announced their split last month in a statement:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, we have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” their statement said. “We will continue to work together on television 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.”
The Muppets premieres Sept. 22 at 8/7c on ABC.
