One of the more surprising things learned in the lead-up to “Muppets Most Wanted” is the intense feud that has erupted between former friends Miss Piggy and Joan Rivers. The two were close when they appeared together in “Muppets Take Manhattan,” but something happened over the years to end that friendship.
While talking to Zap2it at the “Muppets Most Wanted” junket, Piggy made it clear that their feud continues, though it seems to make Kermit the Frog rather uncomfortable.
The obvious next step in their war of words is to challenge Rivers for her red-carpet throne. So, that’s exactly what Piggy did as we presented her with four different red carpet looks. Can she give them the “Fashion Police” treatment, like her frienemy does so often?
‘Muppets Most Wanted” is in theaters Friday (March 21).
