So by now you probably know that on August 4th, Kermit the [Spineless] Frog announced via Twitter that he had ended his very long-term relationship with Miss [Reigning Goddess of Everything] Piggy.

And yesterday, the Internet was set ablaze by the scandalous release of the very first photos of his new girlfriend, a homewrecking hog named Denise who works in the marketing department of their new show, The Muppets. Look at that arrogant mug. She clearly has *no class*.

Kermit immediately took to  Twitter to deny the allegations, pulling the typical BS "we're just friends" line.

Which just goes to show that Kermit is a liar, because merely a day after announcing his split from Miss Piggy, he tweeted that he was already in a relationship with Denise. He also explicitly called her his girlfriend in this Extra interview and ABC's official first look presentation

So, how did Miss Piggy react to the news? Despite her reputation as a so-called "diva," the Queen reacted with professional placidity. When asked about the new relationship at Comic Con, she said she was perfectly fine and that she and Kermit had both moved on. When pressed about whether or not she was seeing someone, she throatily responded, "Who am I not dating?"

Indeed, while Kermit has been tied down by some common pig, Miss Piggy has been sweeping through a string of Hollywood's sexiest celebs. 

First there's yummy Topher Grace, with whom she did some serious smooching on the set of her new war film. Apparently, TMZ is calling them "Tofiggy," which sounds like a delicious taffy.

Then, there's Liam Hemsworth, who broke his Instagram virginity by posting a photo of himself looking longingly into the eyes of the woman he called "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World." He even included a shoutout to her stupid ex, writing "Kermit, #sorryNotSorry." This is, quite literally, every dumped woman's dream. 

And most recently, scrumptious Nathan Fillion was caught sneaking out of Miss Piggy's trailer while tucking his shirt back into his pants, right in front of Kermit

Let's take a closer look at the moment they make eye contact, shall we? Look at Kermit's face. What a tool.

But it isn't only in the man department that she's winning. Miss Piggy is also providing inspiration to heartbroken women everywhere, by reminding them that you certainly can't let a man affect your self-esteem and self-worth. No one, and I mean no one, can make her feel any less fabulous than she is.

She's also enjoying the single life and all the tasty perks that come with it.

And just because she's been glamorously gracious and kind doesn't mean she hasn't subtly let bitches know their place.
