Jay Leno never commented on Sharon Osbourne's huge reveal that she had a fling with the "Tonight Show" host back in the early 70's, when they were both still single. That is until now when his guest, Joy Behar, wanted to know more about the Osbourne "flingy dingy" as Osbourne first called it on "The Talk" earlier this month, according to Yahoo.com on Sept. 19.
Anyone who has ever seen the former host of "The View," Behar, in action you know that if she wants to get to the bottom of things, you have no choice but to spell the beans. This was the situation for Leno on his own show last night, he suddenly become the person being interviewed.
First Leno made sure to say that both were single during this fling. He then said that Sharon got his phone number when he was working at The Comedy Store and she called him every night at midnight and the two would talk for an hour. Joy quickly jumped in and said, "She stalked you?" Leno said, "No she was just calling me."
Leno went on to say that Sharon didn't tell him who she was, but she had a British accent and "she was really intelligent." He said after doing these midnight calls for a week or so, he suggested they'd meet in person because they seemed to enjoy each other so much on the phone.
As far as the graphic details, this is as far as Leno would dish on his fling with Sharon Osbourne. While both Osbourne and Leno now confess to having a fling 40 some-odd years ago, neither one has so much as mentioned the word "bed," never mind what went on during that fling. Both seem really old school in that department!
