Is Kermit the Frog seeing a new woman?
Fans are still reeling from his shock split from his long-time girlfriend Miss Piggy, but it seems Kermit the Frog has already moved on with a much younger and prettier woman.
The Muppets star is reportedly dating US TV network ABC's head of marketing, Denise — who, like his ex, is a pig. And according to People, Kermit's already calling her "his girlfriend".
Like a true showbiz pro, Kermit has denied that there is anything serious going on between him and Denise.
The Hollywood veteran shot down rumours that he was attached again in a statement posted to his Twitter account.
Nice try Kermit, but we aren't falling for the old "we are simply close friends" trick. Judging from the way you look at her, there's definitely something going on between the two of you. Ken Jeong can testify to that.
After finding out about his split from Miss Piggy, Kermit fan Emmy Rossum, who stars in the hit TV show Shameless, felt that she had a chance with the Rainbow Connection singer and even came up with couple — Kemmy? Emmit? — to prove how serious she was.
But her dreams were ultimately shattered by Kermit, who obviously already had someone special in mind.
Odd. It's as if he's contradicting himself. On one hand, he wants everyone to know that he likes Denise a lot. On the other, he doesn't seem to want to commit to anything just yet. For all we know it could all an elaborate plan to win Miss Piggy back.
If you haven't heard, she was recently photographed with The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth. And when Hemsworth joined Instagram on September 1, he made the photo his first ever post.
ABC's upcoming The Muppets series will reunite Kermit and Miss Piggy — with Denise and Hemsworth set to make appearances as well — so if the former power couple are indeed trying to make each other jealous, we could be in for one very interesting show.
