Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy hit back at Fox News at a UK press conference following the London Premiere of their new film, in response to Fox's earlier criticism of the film "pushing a dangerous liberal agenda" at kids.

Making the publicity rounds following the London premiere of their new hit movie, Kermit and Miss Piggy defended their fellow fuzzy foam friends from attacks by the right-leaning cable channel. Check out the clip below:

Eric Bolling, host of Follow the Money, alleged last year that The Muppets pushes a "dangerous liberal agenda," as the oil tycoon villain is named Tex Richman. "We are teaching our kids class warfare. Where are we, Communist China?" Bolling asked.

Seriously. Asked by reporters about the accusations, Kermit responded:

"Oh, it's SO dangerous. You know it's a funny thing. They were concerned about us having some prejudice against oil companies. That is categorically not true."

"And besides if we have such a big a problem with the oil companies, why would we have spent the entire film driving around a gas-guzzling Rolls-Royce?"

The lovable amphibian does make a point there.

Miss Piggy chimed in: "It's almost as laughable as accusing Fox News of being, uh ... news." Oh, snap. A cable news network, OWNED by sock puppets.

Watch the original Fox segment after the jump:

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are sitting on the couch. No it's not therapy. It's the reunion show and who would miss it. We recap all of the confessions, name calling, and overall snarkiness in our THG +/- review!

The first half of this reunion starts off with no Dana, Brandi or Kim. Although the first two aren't mentioned, Andy tells us that Kim has checked herself in to an alcohol and drug treatment center. Well thank goodness for that.

Plus 20. That woman needs help and it's about time she got it.

Kim in Rehab

The rest of the ladies are present and have Taylor Armstrong's lips gotten even bigger than they were all season or is it just me? Minus 10. I think she can stop the injections now. Her transformation into a duck is nearly complete.

But we'll get back to Taylor later.

Instead we move on to admiring Lisa's curvaceous back end. Yes, we get a montage of booty shots of the classy Brit. Plus 5 because she barely blushes as she scoffs at Andy's question about implants.

Of course things take a darker turn rather quickly. I never realized that everyone took Lisa's dry humor so seriously. Yes, she can be kind of snarky but her little digs are generally funny and right on the mark.

Poor Adrienne is still ticked about Lisa's calling her new shoe line the Maloof hoof. Personally I think the moniker is hilarious but I suppose if they were my shoes I might not be so happy. But how many things rhyme with Maloof?

Last week, Courtney Robertson cemented her reputation as The Bachelor villain of the year, manipulating Ben, telling off the other girls and saying "winning" a lot.

Tonight, she took it to a whole new level.

In Puerto Rico for a little spring training, only one team would emerge as winners, and only one woman would be the MVP ... and we don't mean Lindzi Cox. Sadly.

The Bachelor spoilers we've posted so far this season actually didn't give away too much about this episode ... beyond what the promos already told us, at least.

How did it all turn out? Who stood with roses at the end and whose rear end was blurred? Please, join us for THG's official +/- Bachelor recap of week five ...

No Crying in Baseball

NO CRYING IN BASEBALL: These players have seen happier moments.

A group date started with an INTENSE game of baseball in Roberto Clemente Stadium, with the winning team scoring a date with Ben, and the losing team sent home. Sporting events for roses? What is this, Bachelor Pad? Plus 10.

Plus 15 for the ladies' "uniforms," too.

Blakeley Shea's got game! Plus 9.

Courtney had a great zinger/compliment: “Blakeley is like a champion out there. Who knew that strippers could play baseball?” Plus 11, because VIP Cocktail Waitress Blakeley totally does look like prime Tiger Woods mistress material.

After a stinging defeat, Blakeley tells her fallen cohorts, “I busted my ass out there because I hoped you guys wanted it just as bad.” Inspiring, Coach. Plus 6.

After a month of speculation that Steve Jones is leaving The X Factor, the host confirmed Monday that he's indeed packing it in after the inaugural US season.

On his Twitter page, Jones calls his departure "a shame," but adds, "I can't complain as I've had a great time. Good luck to everyone on the show."

He gave no reason why he wasn't returning for a second season.

Last month, a rep for the Welsh TV star called reports of his firing "a fabrication," though the show's producer and judge, Simon Cowell, promised changes.

Cowell recently refused to deny reports that Jones was getting axed. Nicole Scherzinger is also rumored to be exiting, though that hasn't been confirmed.

"I don’t think he did a bad job but ... there is a Brit limit on the show," he told the U.K.'s Mirror, implying that a shake-up was in the works ... which it was.

Will you miss Steve?

Cynthia Nixon is trying to dig herself out of the hole she created with comments last week to The New York Times.

A few days after stating that, for her, homosexuality is a choice and that she did does care for the term "bisexual," the former Sex and the City star has given a new interview to The Advocate. In it, she clarifies that her initial statements referred solely her story and added:

"I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can't and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:

"While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship."

The whole online world now knows that Demi Moore was "smoking something" last week, and the act resulted in a "semi-conscious" state that left at least one friend in a panic.

That's because the 911 call placed on behalf of the actress was released to the public, something that's permitted in our justice something and something which befalls most celebrities who end up in the hospital.

But George Clooney doesn't believe this should be the case.

"I think it's a stupid thing," the actor told The Insider. "I think it's stupid for anyone, whether they're celebrated or not, I don't believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that's my opinion. What's happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it's not just about people here, it's about everybody. There won't be any version of privacy. So it's going to be a tricky thing."

It's a tricky subject indeed. Where do you stand on it? Should 911 calls be made public?

A new quarterback took them from 2-14 to 6-10.

So the Carolina Panthers can't wait to see what a new logo does for them next season.

Indeed, the team unveiled a slightly modified look to its logo today, removing an outline around their cats' head, darkening the shade of blue around the edges and unhinging the feline's jaw a bit. Can you even tell the difference?

Carolina Panthers Logo

“We have one of the finest and most recognizable logos in the NFL and wanted to make it as modern as possible without losing the dramatic essence of the mark,” Panthers President Danny Morrison said of the revamp.

What do you think, fans?

Poor Newt Gingrich. Already under siege from Super PACs, media members and politicians in the tank for Mitt Romney, guy is about to lose his own theme song!

The candidate is being sued by a company which owns the rights to Survivor's 1982 hit "Eye of the Tiger," for using the inspirational Rocky III tune at campaign events.

Rude Music Inc., owned by a member of Survivor, filed the suit against Newt for jacking the song to push a political agenda ... that the band clearly isn't a fan of.

Newt, who has surged into contention for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has been using the song at various political events from 2009-present.

And probably not for much longer.

RMI claims Gingrich, along with his campaign team, Newt 2012, Inc., recently  used the song during a campaign event in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, claiming:

"Mr. Gingrich entered the packed Moose Lodge for a speech as ["Eye of the Tiger"] 'pulsed' through the room, according to the the Newt 2012, Inc. website."

Gingrich isn't the first GOPer to be sued for using music - Jackson Browne sued John McCain for using "Running on Empty" in 2008 - and likely won't be the last.

On the plus side, Ron Paul can use any Kelly Clarkson song he wants.
