Sometimes, there are flings that happen in Hollywood that you can totally get behind. Other times, there are flings that happen in Hollywood that make you cringe. The story we are about to tell you is the latter such instance, in which Sharon Osbourne recounts the fact that when she first got to Hollywood, she took up very briefly with Jay Leno. Osbourne revealed her big secret on "The Talk" today, according to People:

"When I was 25, I just moved to America...I had met my husband [Ozzy], but we weren't together. We were just friends. I didn't have a boyfriend. I never did date a lot at that time, anyway, because I was not very dateable...One thing led to another...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."

Osbourne adds that Leno was initially interested because he liked the sound of her voice after she and another friend prank called him.

But their love affair was brief; several months after they were together, Leno introduced Osbourne to the woman she describes as "the real love of his life."
