Amid a heavy week of rumored and confirmed divorces and separations in the entertainment realm, one long-gestating split was finally unveiled: “The Muppets” stars Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy are dunzo.

The move was likely powered by publicity, as the famed amphibian and farm mammal are preparing for the launch of the rejiggered, mockumentary-style “The Muppet Show”… Which they will continue to plug, as they did today during ABC's Television Critics Association panel.
“After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” Miss Piggy also said on her official Facebook page. “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.”
