Sharon Osbourne reveals fling with Jay Leno
On Monday's (Sept. 9) episode of "The Talk," during the show's weeklong "Big Secret" segment, Osbourne make the surprising revelation. "It's not like it's a dirty little secret," she said.
"When I was 25, I just moved to America," she started. "I had met my husband, but we weren't together. We were just friends. I didn't have a boyfriend. I never did date a lot at that time, anyway, because I was not very dateable."
After being invited to a club to see Leno perform his comedy routine, Osbourne told a friend that she found Leno "very nice, very funny." She and her friend decided to prank call the comedian. "He liked my voice," she said, so she continued calling back and pretending to be a wrong number.
"One thing led to another," she continued. "He came to my house and met me and then we had a little fling. The fling was more fling for me and not fling enough for him. A couple of months into it, he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet. She was lovely and they took me to Fat Burger and they showed me around town. They were so kind to me and continued the friendship over the years."
After being quizzed by her co-hosts, Osbourne admitted that Leno was a good kisser, but didn't remember much more because "it was so long ago."
Are you surprised that Osbourne and Leno were once an item?
