RuPaul Kikis With Kermit and Miss Piggy in Exclusive “Muppets Now” Clip

Do they have a rainbow connection?

Electric Mayhem? More like Electric Mayhem Miller because the worlds of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the Muppets are about to collide on Disney+.

RuPaul reunites with Kermit and company in the premiere episode of Muppets Now, a new Disney+ original series. The episode, “Due Date,” finds the Muppets trying to keep up with today’s technology like streaming services and video chatting. With Mother Ru, they talk two timeless topics: divas and fashion.


In an exclusive new clip, the Drag Race host joins Kermit for a table-side interview as he dishes some sage advice to everyone’s favorite furry frog. Miss Piggy can’t help but enter the room and immediately make the conversation about her, specifically asking if being called a diva is a compliment. Who would ever call Miss Piggy a diva?!

“Oh, absolutely. it’s a term of endearment, it’s a term that really signifies your importance in the industry,” Ru reassures Piggy. “And madam, you are the most important female figure in the entertainment industry.”

Let’s hope Ru’s kind words don’t go to Piggy’s hog head.

It’s not the first time the supermodel of the world has kikied with the Muppets. He performed on Lady Gaga and the Muppets Holiday Spectacular, Mother Monster’s 2013 Thanksgiving television special, and he was also a guest on The Muppets 2015 series.

We don’t know about you, but we love when Ru and the Muppets get together. Are we the only ones who think Miss Piggy would make an excellent Drag Race guest judge? We already know she agrees.

Muppets Now premieres July 31 on Disney+. Until then, check out a preview of RuPaul’s cameo in the exclusive clip below.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
