Ahead of the series premiere of The Muppets next month on ABC, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy announced their breakup on Tuesday during the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
Kermit and Miss Piggy said they are not commenting further on the matter "unless they get the right offer."
Kermit later tweeted that he is now seeing Denise in publicity at the network.
PR pros expressed the full range of emotion about the breakup.
