Move Over, Miss Piggy! Check Out Kermit the Frog's Ham-tastic New Girlfriend

Kermit's definitely got a type

Shelli Weinstein

It's only been a month since Kermit and Miss Piggy announced their split, but it looks like Kermit has officially moved on. The frog has been seeing another pig named Denise, who works in marketing at ABC, and according to People, is "always stopping by the set of Up Late," Miss Piggy's new late-night talk show. (Which Piggy certainly can't be happy about.)

The Muppets will include lots of celebrities and musical elements

As you can see from the photo above, Denise a svelte swine with an eye for color. But are they really romantically involved? Kermit himself claims that they're only "close friends" (ouch!). Check out his full statement in the tweet below:

Meanwhile, our favorite thrill-seeking weirdo has managed to cross paths with Scandal's Huck and Quinn in a new Muppetspromo, and while the rest of us would shiver in fear -- well, Gonzo's excited.

"If you press the skip button this guy gets the drill," Quinn (Katie Lowes) threatens. But watch how Olivia Pope's fixers react to Gonzo's enthusiasm. (Remember, this is the same Muppet who loves balancing heavy objects, working with cannonballs, and attempting motorcycle stunts.)

The Muppets premieres on Sept. 22 at 8/7c on ABC.
