Jessica revealed what happens in the commercial: “The concept is very cute. The Muppets are fighting and I’m trying to calm everybody down with this amazing new pizza from Pizza Hut called the ‘Four-For-All.” When asked how she felt about doing the commercial she said: “It’s very cool and Pizza Hut is the best and the Muppets are an American icon. I’ve watched them since I was young and Miss Piggy is in a cute little ‘Juicy’ sweatsuit and has bling-bling so it’s fun! I like her attitude!” So who will the reality diva be rooting for come Sunday? In true “Jessica-ism” fashion, she admitted: “I don’t have a preference, I’d have to look at their uniforms and tell you what color I like best!” Jessica is also performing as part of the MTV TRL special at the Super Bowl on CBS.
