Sharon Osbourne shared a very revealing secret about herself on the set of her daytime talk show The Talk. Trust us, you won’t believe this one!

Long before she was married to the self-proclaimed prince of darkness Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon was a young twenty-something who had just arrived on the scene in Los Angeles.

“Remember, at 25, I had met my husband but we weren’t together. We were just friends,” she said before jumping into this juicy tale. “So, I’m here and I didn’t have a boyfriend – I never did date a lot at that time anyway because I was not very dateable.”

According to Us Weekly, a friend of hers coaxed her into visiting the club she worked at because it was “full of men.” There she met a man whom she described to friends as “very nice, very funny.”

Fortunately for her, her gal pal had the young man’s phone number. The two proceeded to prank call him repeatedly.

“He liked my voice and I kept calling. I said I had the wrong number but I kept talking with my English accent,” she said. She then added that one thing led to another and “he actually came to my house and met me and we had a little fling.”

Unfortunately, things didn’t work out between the pair and a few months later, he introduced her to the “real love of her life.”

“The fling was more of a fling for me and not fling enough for him because a couple months later he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet, and she was lovely and took me to Fatburger and showed me around town,” she said.

As the audience let out an audible “Aw,” Sharon revealed the identity of her mystery man: none other than the late-night talk show host Jay Leno. Leno married the love of his life Mavis Nicholson in 1980; Sharon was married two years later to Ozzy. The two have three children together – Kelly Osbourne, who is now engaged to her rocker boyfriend, and Jack Osbourne, who is married with one child.

Sharon doesn’t fully kiss and tell, though! When asked by fellow co-host Julie Chen if she slept with Leno or not, Sharon remained coy.

“It was so long ago I can’t remember!” She said laughing. “One cannot remember that long ago.”
