WATCH: Kerry Washington Consoles The Muppets' Kermit the Frog After His 'Tough Breakup' from Miss Piggy
Originally posted 08/14/2015 12:00PM
In a new promo for The Muppets, the Scandal star gets together with her new network mates Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy to welcome them to ABC, and she finds out firsthand that there's still a lot of tension between the two in the wake of their recent split.
After Washington, 38, mentions to Piggy that she cut off her on her ex's line, the Muppets star retorts, "He stepped on my dreams!" before making a dramatic exit.
With four seasons of Fitz and Olivia's on-again/off-again relationship drama under her belt, Washington knows heartache when she sees it, so she gives the "It's Not Easy Bein' Green" singer the opportunity to tell her why he's blue.

After 40 years as a couple, Kermit and Miss Piggy called it quits Thursday, vowing the breakup won't affect their work – but could the frog's wandering eye have been the final straw?
Last March, Kermit, 60, got flirtatious with Muppets Most Wanted costar Tina Fey – who wed composer, director and producer Jeff Richmond in 2001 – during a press conference in Los Angeles. Piggy, 41, arrived conspicuously late to the event.
"I'm actually stretching myself quite a lot as a dramatic actor in this thing. I did many, many scenes with Tina. One particular scene stands out to me. It was a closed set. It was the scene where she licks me," Kermit told reporters. "But I just want to clear it up right here with the press that Tina is happily married. Jeff was there during the shooting. Closed set."
