During a special segment on 'The Talk' Monday, Sharon Osbourne
revealed that she had a fling
with Jay Leno
35 years ago.
Each of the show's co-hosts will tell a "Big Secret" this week and it was Mrs. O's turn to dish first -- and so she did.
She began her tale by stating, "It's not like it's a dirty little secret. When I was 25, I just moved to America. I had met Ozzy but we weren't together. We were just friends. I never did date a lot at that time, anyway, because I was not very dateable."
She and a friend watched Leno performing his comedy routine, and Osbourne thought he was "very nice, very funny."
Thus began a series of phone calls to him because, she admits, "he liked my voice."
According to Sharon, "One thing led to another. 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 we have continued the friendship over the years."
When quizzed by her co-hosts, she couldn't or wouldn't recall if he was a good lover but she did acknowledge that he was a good kisser. So there you have it...
For the record, Leno, 63, married Mavis Nicholson in 1980. She is a leading feminist in California who prefers to work behind the scene of the non-profit Feminist Majority Foundation.
