Josh Groban has worked with many singers, who are known for being Divas, and he told PBS NewsHour who he thinks is the biggest one of them all. Is it Celine Dion? Barbra Streisand? Kelly Clarkson? Sting?
It is none of the above. As it was revealed yesterday on The Muppets he had a torrid affair with Miss Piggy. PBS Newshour asked him about their wild weekend and he said, “She is an icon. She can have her pick of any man and I guess I am honored for the short time we had together.” Then he added, “Kermit, as he does, got in the way.”
Before their short tryst, they sang a duet on her late night show. He described what it was like working with his now-ex as, “I’ve worked with a lot of performers in the past, she was definitely the biggest Diva I’ve worked with.”
Sounds like he is a little bitter, but you can’t blame him. Once you go Miss Piggy, you lose the desire to get jiggy. It’s no biggie. There’s still Kat Dennings who he can diggy.
Last week, we found out on The Muppets that Kermit and Miss Piggy broke up and tonight at 8p he tries to fix her up with another man.
The Muppets have a color code system to warn each other about what type of mood Miss Piggy is in. Code Green means they are safe, Code Yellow mean be cautious and Code Red means run and hide. Well the time has come when the host of Up Late with Miss Piggy is at Code Red and no one is safe. Kermit comes up with a way to diffuse that bomb and that is to set her up on a date. After the first few choices don’t pan out, they decide to book Josh Groban on the show.
Piggy and him sing the duet If I Loved You, a cover off his album Stages, and they instantly fall in love. Now she is at Code Green and everyone is happy.
But…that won’t last. Groban has a few suggestions for the show. Actually more than a few and it is starting to ruin Up Late. What to do? Is happy Miss Piggy worth destroying the show? It is a tough decision, what will Kermit do?
The show isn’t only about Miss Piggy, Kermit and Josh Groban tonight, Fozzie the Bear gets to party with his idol. While he is at Jay Leno’s house, he steals a memento. It looks like he got away with it, until Leno calls him over to his house to talk to him about something. What does he want? You just have to tune in to find out in another hilarious episode of a show that makes you feel like a kid, even though it is for adults and you supposedly are one.
Oh and the best part of tonight’s episode is Laurence Fishburne who will have you hysterically laughing like the Swedish Chef. We need more of him on The Muppets.
Everyone was heartbroken when they found out that Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog broke up. Then to break our hearts even more, both of them moved on. Kermit is dating another pig named Denise (even though he says they are “just friends”) and she might be dating Josh Groban according to Entertainment Weekly. The singer and her started out as friends, and then things really started bacon, I mean, baking, for them! Now their oinkdorable love affair is coming to her ABC show The Muppets and all will be revealed in an upcoming episode.
Groban proves if you use your Pure Imagination, anything can happen. Anything like being cast as a love interest for Miss Piggy! Does it get any better than that for an actor?
The Muppets debuts on ABC, September 22nd at 8p.
UPDATE 1: Josh Groban’s other girlfriend, who is a cat, I mean Kat, purrfectly responded to her boyfriend’s new love interest on Twitter. Kat Dennings Tweeted, “I’m dating Kermit now so that’s cool.”
UPDATE 2: Josh Groban’s episode of The Muppets will air on September 29th. Here is a description from ABC, “Hostile Makeover – In an attempt to make Miss Piggy happy, Kermit sets her upwith Josh Groban who fills her head with ideas on how to make Up Late with Miss Piggybetter.”
Earlier this week, ABC shared a video of Kermit the Frog catching a disheveled looking Nathan Fillion coming out of Miss Piggy’s trailer; and you had to wonder if Beckett should be jealous. The answer is yes because now we are seeing Castle asking Kermit if Miss Piggy and him are really over.
So looks their will be a new spinoff coming to ABC, Mr & Miss Castle! Wonder what crime stories they will be writing about together? Ones hat will be all Fifty Shades of Pink!
When it comes to Kermit, I don’t understand why he looks so upset because he has a new female friend that looks a lot like his ex.
A few weeks ago, HBO announced that they had picked up Sesame Street for 5 more years; and it looks the show will be going through some changes that would make it appeal more for the paid movie channel that gave us Real Sex. Today, they released a video called When Cookie Met Sally, and they recreated that infamous scene from the RomCom at the deli. Yes, that scene. I guess now kids are going to learn what the letter O is really for. Hopefully, they will be able to teach little boys where the G is, so they will grow up to be men who know how to give a woman the letter O. Why didn’t Sesame Street teach us the alphabet like that when we were kids?
Nathan Fillion was seen coming out of Miss Piggy’s trailer and he was looking all disheveled like he just porked her. So do they have something to tell us? Probably and since Kermit and her have broken up, it is OK for him to bring his bacon over to her Muppets Castle.
A few days ago, HBO announced that they picked up Sesame Street for 5 more seasons. So what does that mean for the show that has spent 45 years on PBS? So That Happened got their hands on the first trailer and there will be cursing and so much more. This is not the Sesame Street we grew up on, but it is the Sesame Street I want to watch now. I just won’t let any kids watch it. Which is OK because they are watching Dora the Explorer and Doc McStuffins.
The Muppets isn’t going to debut until September 22nd, and ABC released the 10 minute pilot presentation two months before the premiere. These are not The Muppets we grew up, but they are The Muppets we can grow old with.
Sonia Manzano, who has played Maria on Sesame Street for 45 years, announced yesterday that she is retiring from the kids educational show according to The Hollywood Reporter. She joined the show back in 1971 and became a mainstay 3 years later. Once she was part of the show, we saw her date, get married and have a kid. Now it is time for her to move on.
As she grew up on the show, we all grew up watching her. If you think about most of us have watched Sesame Street at some point in our lives, so she has been part of all of our lives. Now it is time for her to enjoy her life and I wish her the best! We will miss her, but we will remember her with a big letter F as in fondly.
Mad Men ended on Sunday and Christina Hendricks is already back on our televisions. The much loved red head is going to be on Sesame Street and she is going to teach Elmo about technology. Something Joan Holloway knows nothing about, but Hendricks does. She knows all about lap tops, cell phones, cameras, tablets and eReaders, while only one of those readily available back in the days of Mad Men. Hey kids, can you guess which one that is?
Want to feel really old, ask a kid which item was around the ’60s and see how many of them guess the right answer.
