The cat is outta the bag!
But one question was still left unanswered following the news, how did the late night show host respond to the shocking confession?
Well, on today's show Mrs. O admitted that Leno got in touch with her immediately after she went public with their short-lived romance.
"As soon as the show was finished he called me," she explained. "He said, ‘Isn't it amazing that…we were both single and we both found our love of our lives and we both got the longest marriages in Hollywood?'"
After Sharon spilled the beans about the "flingy-wingy," her fellow panel members were quick to ask for more details.
"You mean, you had sex with Jay Leno?" cohost Julie Chen tried her best to clarify after Sharon had shared her anecdote.
"It was so long ago, I can't remember," Sharon said demurely. "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," she added.
Talk about a kiss and tell!
