Edward R. Murrow
She’s a classic diva, self-obsessed and desperate for attention. She’s famously voluptuous. And her first marriage lost its luster not long after the honeymoon, if even there was one.
We’re not talking about some basic-cable reality queen. We speak, of course, of Miss Piggy, the blonde, blue-eyed star of Jim Henson’s The Muppet Show who ranked 23rd on TV Guide’s 1996 list of the 50 greatest television stars ever – right behind Edward R. Murrow.
It’s the kind of snub that would normally provoke the hot-tempered swine to turn up her snout – she wanted the top spot – except that Piggy has been largely MIA since 2005, when the Muppets briefly reunited for the made-for-TV Muppets’ Wizard of Oz. But her luck is about to change.
