The 60-year-old TV personality met her current husband Ozzy Osbourne on a strictly business basis when she was just 18.

Aged 25 she enjoyed a steamy affair with American talk show host Jay and she couldn’t recall the exact details when confronted by fellow The Talk presenter Julie Chen about possibly sleeping with him.

"It was so long ago, I can't remember," Sharon said on the show, confessing that she wasn’t sure why the news wasn’t out already. "One cannot remember that long ago!

"I thought that everybody knew everything about me because I tell everything anyway, but this I don't know why I just didn't discuss it before or shared it or anything. And it's not like it's a dirty little secret."

Sharon went on to manage her spouse’s solo career when he exited band Black Sabbath in 1979.

She and Ozzy tied the knot in 1982, and Sharon recalls her experience hooking up with Jay several years before she walked down the aisle.

"So anyway, I come down to this club and it is full of men performing and this one person, I think, 'Oh he's very nice, very funny.' So I said to my friend, 'I like him.' She says, 'I've got his number,'” Sharon shared.

"One thing led to another...He actually 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 because a couple of months into it, he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet."

Jay married Mavis Leno around 33 years ago and she is presumably the other woman in the anecdote.
