Kermit and Miss Piggy’s Wedding: The Inside Details

The groom was a little shell-shocked, while the bride was thrilled that every eye was on her. Even so, after an often-bumpy 40-year courtship, Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog were finally standing together at the altar.

Never one to be shy, even on the topic of their long-awaited nuptials, Miss Piggy tells PEOPLE exclusively that yes, she did have wedding jitters before walking down the aisle.

“What bride doesn’t?” she says. “They were jitters of joy! This day, even more than most, was all about moi! A real shame you can only do this once, at least if you’re doing it right.”

Asked how her reluctant hubby-to-be and frequent costar – the two can currently be seen in Disney’s star-studded Muppets Most Wanted – felt about the wedding, the buxom, blonde bride, who famously nagged her groom for decades to put a ring on it, responds, “I’m not exactly sure. The last time I saw him he was still in shock.”

About the guest list: “Yes, all the Muppets were there,” says Miss Piggy. “Kermit insisted.” Did this also include celebrities? “Celebrities! Sweetie, if you weren’t there, you got kicked of the ‘official celebrities’ list.”

A Rolls and a Ring Fit for Royalty

Arriving for the wedding in a white Rolls Royce befitting royalty, as well-wishers cheered her on, Miss Piggy floated down the aisle in a frothy Vivienne Westwood Couture wedding dress designed exclusively for her.

The outfit all but screamed romance: a long Ivory Court gown, with corset detailing and paillettes (that’s French for sequins) made from recycled plastic bottles, topped by an ivory tulle veil.

“The bride looked stunning,” a source tells PEOPLE.

The demanding diva landed the dress in true Miss Piggy fashion.

“I reached out to fashion legend Vivienne Westwood and asked her to design a dress for moi,” says Miss Piggy, adding, “And when I say ‘reach out,’ I mean it. She was sitting near me during Milan Fashion Week. I had to knock over three dowagers to get to her. What she came up with is, dare I say it, worthy of moi.”

Finding the right ring wasn’t as easy as finding the right dress – or frog, Miss Piggy admits.

“I tried to get Tiffany’s, Cartier and Harry Winston in a bidding war for the rings, but they each insisted on getting naming rights for the whole ceremony, so that fell through,” she says. “The rings are meant to be symbols of our love for each other, but they must also make another statement. And that statement is: ‘Wow! Look at the size of that rock!’ “

The couple also wished to keep their wedding intimate – minus bridesmaids or groomsmen.

“It was just ‘Kermie and moi,’ ” says Miss Piggy. “That’s the only party I care about. Oh sure, I want others there to witness the greatest moment in history. … But at this point in our relationship, who needs a wingman?”

As for another tradition, “I wanted a wedding cake that was a work of art that would symbolized Kermie and moi’s love for each other. But mostly I wanted a cake with loads of chocolate and gobs of creamy white icing. It was art. Art you can eat – and that’s the best kind.”

A floral consultant worked with the bride to select the loveliest floral bouquet imaginable. “Something light, airy, eye-popping … yet with just the right heft for throwing,” Miss Piggy says. “Also, I wanted to make certain these were all free-range flowers … and not the kind you buy when you stop for a red light waiting to get on the freeway.”

Regarding the music, she says, “I have so many musical friends – Céeline Dion, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett. So it’s really strange that we went with Nicky Napoleon and His Emperor Penguin Orchestra. But they were good.”

The best part of the day? “You already asked about the cake. Oh, I’m kidding! Kind of. The best part is just being with Kermie, and the smooching, of course.”

One area in which Miss Piggy remained tight-lipped: honeymoon plans.

“Oh yeah, like I’m going to tell PEOPLE that,” she said, obviously guarding her privacy. “You’d have your fleet of helicopter paparazzi swooping down on us in minutes. No, it’s a private getaway, and if you really want to know where it is, then sign here – it says you’re gonna pay.”

Keeping Her Name

She insists she will not change her name – “I’m so well known by my nom du stage … I wouldn’t want to confuse my millions of fans” – also, that she has no plans to be a traditional wife. Instead, she will be “post-modern. I’m independent, but I still get to make demands.”

And her secret for holding on to her man, er, frog all these years? “Love … trust … honesty. If you love each other, then he’ll trust you, even when you can’t be totally honest with him.”

Came time for our session together to end, PEOPLE had just one last question. Judging by her reaction, it did not sit well with our interview subject: Are you easy to live with, Miss Piggy?

“I am extremely easy to live with,” she huffed. “Why? Did someone tell you I wasn’t? Who was it!? C’mon … tell me who told you I’m not easy to live with! Ahem, because it’s simply not true. I’m delightful, n’est ce pas?

What Happened? Child Stars We Thought Would be Hot Adults!

Let’s be honest, puberty isn’t kind to any of us. Weird things happen to chins, hair gets fuzzy, voices get squeaky and deepen (especially awkward if you’re a girl). But it’s normal! As non-celebrity civilians, we learn to develop stellar personalities to distract from the acne and move on with our lives. Not so easy for child stars. For kids and teens whose careers depend on their adorability factor — who can support their entire family for a year with their dimples — losing their cutie-pie good looks can be disastrous. Look at The Brady Bunch’s Susan Olsen. As Cindy Brady, the lisping daughter with the boing-boing blonde curls, she was a star. But sadly, she grew up to look like a tough-but-lovable bartender in a biker-themed pub in San Fran. Or Tevin Campbell, who was prom-date-perfect as a tween/teen R&B hottie. Now, he’s more “creepy evangelical minister” than pinup.

Whether it’s substance abuse issues (Eddie Furlong), awkward styling (Lark Voorhies), or both (Leif Garrett), these ten celebs look totally different than they did as child stars. Check out how much these formerly cute A-listers have changed!

Kim Kardashian Jealous of Kanye West Protege Pia Mia

0b5dMSA 005315 Kim Kardashian Jealous of Kanye West Protege Pia MiaKIM Kardashian is jealous of Kanye West‘s relationship with his hot young protege, Pia Mia.

West and Mia  have been working on music together under his GOODMUSIC production company for the past few months.

“Kanye is producing some tracks for her and he’s quite involved,” a source tells RadarOnline. “He believes she could be the next Rihanna.

Pia, born Pia Ajdba Mia Perez, is only seventeen and “Kanye has made it clear to everyone that their relationship is strictly creative,” the insider says. “But as they’ve grown closer, and the teen has become one of his trusted advisers, their relationship has raised eyebrows.

One source who worked with the singer on a shoot in L.A. earlier this month opened up about the rapper’s dealings with Pia.

“Kanye called her and the conversation sounded kind of flirty and romantic. It could be that they are just good friends but it was definitely more than just a professional call,” said the source.

“Kanye thinks she’s young, fresh and hip — totally his target audience. He’s been consulting her on a lot of his creative projects, including the Kanye x APC collection.

“Kanye’s creative team was pretty shocked that he would use a teenager as his confidante. And Kim was actually kind of agitated by it, because he doesn’t usually want her input on design stuff. She was a little jealous.

“Kanye sometimes brings Kendall and Kylie along when he hangs out with Pia so he can pick all their brains. He wants to tap into the voice of the hip generation, but it’s definitely a little weird.”

The actress says Justin Theroux has lovely skin.

“He’s got gorgeous skin,” she said.

“Perfect skin.”

Meanwhile, Anstion has reached out to Katy Perry – to diss John Mayer.

The actress got in touch with the singer after hearing Katy had dumped John, possibly because she found out he was cheating on her.

John reportedly dumped Jen by text message in 2008.

“Jen says John should come with a ‘bad for your heart’ warning,” a source said.

“John ripped her heart out when he dumped her. She really struggled getting over that, and she felt the need to reach out to Katy to give her a pat on the back and offer her a shoulder if she needed.”

Jen recruited a mutual pal, Chelsea Handler, to pass on the words of support to Katy, who’s currently in Australia on a promotional visit in preparation for her upcoming world tour.

“At Jen’s request, Chelsea emailed Katy, telling her that Jen thinks she handled the split with class and that she totally dodged a bullet,” a source
