Jay Leno on Handing ‘Tonight Show’ Over to Jimmy Fallon
In a rare new interview with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour, Jay Leno opened up about his one-time fling with Sharon Osbourne, and being replaced by Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.”
As for what Leno will do after he leaves, he admitted, “I have no idea. We’ll figure it out. That’s months away.”
Seymour also asked about all the media attention around Sharon Osbourne’s reveal that she had a “fling” with Leno in 1978 when she was in her 20s. Leno laughed, “I like Sharon. We were both single and we’re friends. She’s a nice lady. And what, it’s supposed to be shocking? It’s just silly.”
