In the video above, we quiz the famous pair on why they split up (Kermit says they “wanted different stuff”) and how they manage to keep it professional while working on their new show. “I’ve always been professional,” Miss Piggy tells us, “and Kermit has always been… Kermit. So there’s that.”
Plus, we get Piggy’s take on Kermit’s new pig girlfriend Denise (”From what I understand, she’s pretty boring”) and her life as a single lady — which she is enjoying, thank you very much. “Every night, I’m going out,” she assures us. “I’m partying it up! Big time!” (Eat your heart out, Kermit.)
And on The Muppets, Piggy’s the host of our late-night talk show, so we had to ask her about being the only woman in the current late-night landscape. “Women are such good listeners. It only makes sense that a woman would host her own show,” she tells us… before ignoring our next question entirely. Sigh. Kermit, we feel your pain.
The Muppets airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
