This is SO tragic!

John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of Jim and Jane Henson, passed away on Friday after suffering a massive heart attack. And on Valentine’s day, of all days!

The puppeteer’s family let people know on Facebook, telling their fans:

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”

Ugh! Just completely tragic! He was so young!

Our thoughts are with John’s family and friends!

Not only did she convince Vivienne Westwood to design her wardrobe for Muppets Most Wanted, but QVC teamed up with the divalicious bombshell to design an extra special Haute Tote.

Created specially for the retailer’s broadcast event Red Carpet Style — Live From L.A., happening during Oscar weekend. How fitting!!

Miss Piggy’s special edition tote will be available for pre-order the week of February 28th, the same day she’ll be stopping by QVC for a special broadcast.

Miss Piggy and Vivienne Westwood team up for the ultimate Muppets Most Wanted wardrobe!

The Muppets get to have all the fun they want. And apparently all the high-fashion too!

For Miss Piggy’s return to the big screen in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, she commissioned none other than Vivienne Westwood to create her all-star wardrobe!

And with a wedding to take place, that left the designer with the hard task of creating a gown fit for a diva!

Miss Piggy divulged:

"Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog."

Ha!

Well, it looks like Vivienne did an AH-maze job with the corset detailing and tulle veil of Piggy’s Ivory Court wedding dress.

We especially adore her crystal stylings!

Vivienne even revealed to Miss Piggy via Harper’s Bazaar:

Go big or go home!

Jimmy Fallon is all set to take over The Tonight Show on February 17th, but not before breaking some records and having fun!

The Late Night host brought in 6.6 million viewers for his last show, and according to a report, he “set series records for the largest overall audience on any night of the week and highest key demo rating for a regularly scheduled episode.”

Impressive!!!

Also, it was the most total-viewers for Late Night since June 25, 1993 (7.5 million) when it was David Letterman's exit episode too!

So, how did he leave?

With the help of The Muppets of course
