Sharon Osbourne may have one of the most enduring marriages in rock and roll history, but at one point, she almost became the leading lady of late night.
PEOPLE reports that the British talk show host, who has been married to rocker Ozzy for over three decades, revealed the news on Monday’s episode of her CBS hit The Talk, during which she opened up to her co-hosts about the details of her fling many years ago with a young Jay Leno.
“When I was 25, I just moved to America," she explained. "I had met my husband [Ozzy], but we weren't together. We were just friends. I didn't have a boyfriend.”
Sharon, who claimed she was “not very dateable” at that time, was taken out by a friend to a club where Jay was performing and introduced to him. Finding him “very nice, very funny,” she did what any interested party would and began prank calling him with some regularity, only to find that the two had quite a bit in common.
"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."
After they had been seeing each other for some time, “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," said Sharon "They were so kind to me and continued the friendship over the years."
When pressed by her co-hosts for details about Jay’s prowess in the bedroom, Sharon revealed “it was so long ago I can’t remember.”
