Sharon Osbourne Talks About Her Fling with Jay Leno
Jay Leno is one of the few Hollywood elite who found the love of his life, married her, and has stayed married since. They met at a monthly book club meeting, and those who know the couple can see they are still in love all these years later.
This week on “The Talk” co-host Sharon Osbourne revealed that before Mavis, she and Jay Leno had a “flingy wingy.”
At the time, she was 25 and had just moved to America. She didn’t know many people and admitted “I never did date a lot at that time anyways because I was not very dateable.” She laughed and went on to tell about how she visited a club full of men performing and made special note of one man. “I think he’s very nice, very funny, So I said to my friend, ‘I like him.’”
Her friend said that she had the man’s number. That man was Jay Leno. Sharon told her friend, “We are going to prank call him.”
To make a long story short, he came over to Sharon’s house and met her, and according to her, “We had a little fling. And the fling was more fling for me, and not fling enough for him.” As Sharon told this story, I could see she still holds a certain respect for her friendship with Leno and his wife.
A couple months into his relationship with Osbourne, Jeno brought around Mavis for her to meet. Osbourne said, “She was lovely.”
He and Mavis took Osbourne to Fatburger and showed her around town. She had never eaten there and said, “I loved it!” Osbourne recalled how kind they were to her and that she continues to be friends with the couple to this day. Leno married Mavis in 1980.
Jay Leno called Osbourne after the show and said, “Isn’t it amazing thatÂ â€¦ we were both single and we both found our love of our lives and we both got the longest marriages in Hollywood.”Â Osbourne married her husband Ozzy in 1982.
