Ladies and gentlemen, your new favorite celebrity feud: Joan Rivers vs Miss Piggy. The comedian and the Muppet got into a fight Friday night (Feb. 28) at a Los Angeles party, covering the “Fashion Police” host in cake.
Photos of Rivers hurriedly leaving the QVC Red Carpet Style party covered in flour and frosting appeared online Saturday morning (March 1), but it wasn’t until a sneakily filmed clip of the brawl landed online that we know what really happen: The two ladies got into a shoving match at the soiree, causing Rivers to fall face first into a cake.
Yes, obviously this is a publicity play — and it’s a clever one. In an interview with Us Weekly, Piggy had some unkind words for Rivers when discussing the new QVC “Muppets Most Wanted” collection. Clearly, Rivers caught wind of the shade being thrown her way.
Stay tuned for updates on this incredibly urgent Hollywood matter. (And watch the funny video below. Bonus points for being annoyingly shot lengthwise, just like a real man-on-the-street video would be!)
