With all the rumors swirling about celebrity splits, and the actual splits, we were still completely blindsided by this:

Miss Piggy and Kermit's conscious uncoupling statement reads:
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Miss Piggy 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. Thank you for your understanding."
It has appeared on both their Facebook accounts. Please, please let this be some sort of promotional stunt for their new show! Kermit appeared at a Television Critics Association panel this week and they got this hot scoop:
Kermit's new girlfriend, Denise, works in marketing for ABC. If you watched the presentation, you know this. #TCA15 #Muppets

Kermie! How could you! If two puppets can't make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us?
