UPDATE: Looks like Kermit is putting the kibosh on the rumors about his relationship with a porcine beauty named Denise. The Muppetsamphibian frontman posted on Twitter, “We are simply close friends.”

Sheesh. I can’t believe I already have to do this again… Here is the official statement on my relationship status:

Soon after, the ABC show’s official account backed him up:

So in other words… It’s none of your business.

EARLIER: Just a few weeks following the announcement of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy’s breakup, the “It’s Not Easy Being Green” crooner appears to have already found love again. Meet Denise, a marketing executive at ABC and Kermit’s new ladylove.

Kermit and Piggy announced the end of their decades-long romance in early August while on ABC’s press tour to promote the Muppets’ upcoming docu-style sitcom, The Muppets, which will follow the production of a late-night talk show hosted by Miss Piggy and which place a new emphasis on the Muppets’ personal lives.

In an official joint statement, the pair assured fans that they will continue to work together and that their split will not interfere with their professional relationship.

While not much is known about Denise — including whether or not she enjoys fashion or speaks French — a source tells People that she will appear on Kermit and Piggy’s upcoming series.

The news has gotten a strong reaction on Twitter, where both “Denise” and “Miss Piggy” have been trending, and a great deal of mockery has been aimed at the former for her noticeably enhanced felt looks.

Miss Piggy has been linked lately to Liam Hemsworth, who is set toappear on the series. Hemsworth Instagrammed a photo of himself gazing adoringly into Piggy’s eyes just the day before the photos of Denise were released, captioning the pic, “Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world. Kermit, #SorryNotSorry.”

Ugh, I've never been a fan of Miss Piggy so adding another female pig is just repulsive to me.

Lets' give her a chance. Clearly he likes the pig girls. She might actually be nice to Kermie and not smash him around and only be nice to him when she wants something like Miss Piggy. He needs to trade up to a better class of swine.

I dunno, she looks like another sassy know-it-all who isn't afraid to speak her mind.

Can't fault the frog for loving bacon.
