Miss Piggy and Kermit have always had a charming back-and-forth, but on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the exes were downright contentious.

When discussing his new girlfriend Denise, Kermit pointed out how much older Piggy is -- so not cool --before shading his ex for dating "anyone" that comes along.

"I have a rigorous application process before anyone can date me," Piggy clarified. "I wish I had those in place when I met you, Kermit."

The couple then began yelling at each other until Jimmy Kimmel interrupted. "I have to say, this is genuintely uncomfortable. It really is," the host said.

Kimmel also asked The Muppets stars if they were surprised at the amount of media coverage of their split. "I feel like the breakup of the Soviet Union didn't get as much coverage as your breakup did," Kimmel noted.

"And rightly so," said Piggy. "Anything that happens to me is going to be front-page news. I'm kind of like the Donald Trump of love. Everything I do is huuuge."
