Sharon Osbourne revealed on the Monday, September 9 episode of her show “The Talk” one thing that not many people knew about. The TV personality, who’s been married to Ozzy Osbourne for 31 years now, said she once had a fling with comedian Jay Leno before she was married to the Black Sabbath rocker.
“I thought that everybody knew everything about me because I tell everything anyway, but this I don’t know why I just didn’t discuss it before or shared it or anything. And it’s not like it’s a dirty little secret,” she began her retelling. “OK, let’s cut to when I was 25, I had just moved to America, I didn’t know many people – remember, 25.”
“I had met my husband but we weren’t together, we were just friends,” she went on. “I didn’t have a boyfriend. I never did date a lot at that time, anyway, because I was not very dateable. … My friend worked at this place and said, ‘You have to come down to this club where I work ’cause it’s full of men, you’ve got to come down!’ ”
“So anyway, I come down to this club and it is full of men performing and this one person, I think, ‘Oh he’s very nice, very funny,’ ” Sharon remembered. They got his number and he was charmed by her English accent after she called. “One thing led to another,” she said. “He came to my house and met me and then we had a little fling.”
However, “the fling was more fling for me and not fling enough for him because a couple of months into it, he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet,” Sharon added. 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.”
When the audience erupted in cheers after she revealed her “flingy wingy” was Leno, co-host Julie Chen asked to clarify, “You mean, you had sex with Jay Leno?” Sharon coyly said, “It was so long ago, I can’t remember. One cannot remember that long ago!” But she did admit the comedian was a good kisser. “There’s a reason God gives people those chins, and I found out the reason why,” she flirtatiously dished on.
Sharon, 60, married her rocker husband Ozzy in 1982. They have three children, Aimee Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne and Jack Osbourne, together. Meanwhile, 63-year-old Leno tied the knot with his wife Mavis Leno in 1980.
