Miss Piggy paid tribute to Joan Rivers despite their longstanding feud originating with their co-starring roles in 1984’s The Muppets Take Manhattan.

In a statement released after Joan Rivers’ death, Miss Piggy said: “Moi is deeply saddened by the passing of my friend and fellow legend, Joan Rivers.”

“From our first appearance together as battling make-up counter girls in <<The Muppets Take Manhattan>> to our recent appearances together on QVC (Joan called it <<The Thrilla in Manolos>>), we were always two of a kind. I will miss her. Can we talk? You bet we can, Joan! Forever and ever!”

Earlier this year, QVC posted a video documenting the feud between Miss Piggy and Joan Rivers.

Joan Rivers died on September 4 at Mount Sinai Hospital, where she had been taken after losing consciousness during an outpatient surgery. She was 81.


Joan Rivers rose to prominence in a comedy world dominated by men, using Can we talk? as her catch phrase, which usually preceded a good-natured skewering.

Sonia is the heart and the artist of the team. She loves art and all that it implies. As Sonia says, good music, a well directed movie, or attending a music or film festival melts people’s heart and make them better. She is great at painting and photography. Working on scrapbooks is her favorite activity.
