Sharon Osbourne Reveals That When She First Came to America She Had a Fling With a Man Who Later Became a Major Late-Night Talk Show Host Here LA Times, E! Online

Sharon Osbourne told this story on "The Talk" earlier this week, according to the Los Angeles Times:

" 'I was 25,' said Osbourne, now 60, setting the stage for the big reveal. '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. 'So I'm here, I don't have a boyfriend, I never did date a lot at that time anyways 'cause I was not very dateable.'

"Turns out she had a friend who worked at a place that was 'full of men' and insisted Osbourne check it out. She did, and noticed one man who was 'very nice, very funny ...' The two women 'prank called' him, and Osbourne's British accent got him interested enough to keep talking to an alleged wrong-number dialer.

"Eventually, 'He came to my house and he met me and then we had a little fling. And the fling was more fling for me, and not fling enough for him. Because a couple of months into it, he brought around his real love of his life for me to meet, and she was lovely and they took me to Fatburger and they showed me around town.'

" 'That man that I had a flingy-wingy with was Jay Leno,' Osbourne said, bringing down the house."
