LOS ANGELES, Sept. 2, 2015 — (UPI) — ABC has revealed Muppet headman Kermit the Frog’s new potential love interest, a sultry pig and businesswoman named Denise.
People reports Denise, a red-headed marketer for the network and apparent character on the upcoming series The Muppets, is always around Kermit’s job. It’s even being said the green public figure calls Denise his girlfriend.
But the Frog, who recently announced his split from longtime girlfriend and partner Miss Piggy, denies any such rumors. Kermit tweeted an official statement regarding his relationship with Denise Tuesday, writing “Sheesh. I can’t believe I already have to do this again….”
“While I prefer to keep my personal life private, this is Hollywood, so who am I kidding?” the statement read. “It is true that I am dating again. However, at this time no one woman — pig or otherwise — is my official ‘new girlfriend.’ We are simply close friends.”
“Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world,” the Hunger Games star wrote. “Kermit, #SorryNotSorry.”
As for Denise, no word on her reaction to the rumors. However, netizens have begun comparing the new character’s features to that of famous actresses like Olivia Wilde and Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer.
