I'm willing to bet there's going to be a storyline where it turns out they're legally married from MTM and never realized it over all these years.
"reality-show illusion" Gotta love those 3 words. Reality shows are anything BUT reality.It's certainly a publicity stunt, but I also think it's probably-necessary setup for the new show. Partly, as someone above suggested, to keep with the "reality show" illusion, but also because some (many?) people would be confused if they don't actually see the breakup, but the show begins after it... So by establishing the fact beforehand via social media, they can skip it and launch straight into the post-breakup plot from the start of the series.
And because the photo book version of MTM includes the cut scene of Gonzo telling Kermit the marriage was real. Because even without that scene, it's clear what the movie is implying by Piggy's giggle to Kermit. She didn't replace Gonzo with some random actor. That wouldn't make much sense as a plot point or a joke. She replaced him with a real minister. And because Piggy calls Kermit "hubby" in the 30th anniversary special. Our "headcanon" has more than enough precedent.Yeah. I know there are some stuck on the headcanon that the priest in MTM was real because of an offhand comment
Now that's publicity worth checking out!Wake me up when there's any Bunsen/Beaker news.
Most all Muppet fans that post on here know that they are fictional characters, and that they are puppets. However they still believe in the relationships because they are so believable. I for one have loved the Kermit and Piggy dynamic in every show and movie they have done together, and if this breakup leads to more depth in there relationship then I'm all for it.Uh oh! These fictional characters are doing something! How dare they!
