Watch: Miss Piggy and Kermit Give First Interview Since Breakup on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

The Muppets” stars Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy paid a visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday night to give their first interview since their very public “break-up” in August.

The duo, who Kimmel described as “the most prominent interspecies couple in the world,” were on acrimonious terms during the appearance, which was ostensibly to promote the debut of their new ABC comedy, premiering Tuesday night at 8 p.m.

When asked why they decided to split after decades together, Piggy noted that it was “the usual laundry list: put the lid down, closing the refrigerator door… not doing the dishes while taking a bath in the sink.”

Kermit’s amphibian qualities were a major source of contention between the two — Piggy noted that Kermit had webbed feet, and when Kermit pointed out that it was a feature that all frogs shared, Piggy said she was oblivious to that fact since she didn’t learn it in school. “The only time I ever came across a frog in school, I dissected it!”

During the interview, talk also turned to Kermit’s new paramour, Denise, and Piggy dropped hints about a potential future as ABC’s next “Bachelorette” (talk about corporate synergy), as well as comparing herself to Donald Trump, thanks to her ability to generate headlines.

Piggy also managed to throw some shade at Kimmel himself, since she now has experience hosting her own late-night show, telling him, “I basically do whatever it is you do here, only better and in high heels.”

Kimmel also welcomed Bill O’Reilly onto the show on Monday, and told the conservative pundit that he believed only one Republican had the chops to beat Donald Trump in the Republican presidential race: O’Reilly himself. “I don’t know about that,” O’Reilly demurred, only noting that he believes himself to be “a good debater,” who could hold his own in a debate with Trump or Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
