Sharon Osbourne revealed a surprising secret on Monday's episode of "The Talk" -- she had a fling with Jay Leno, People reports.

The revelation came as part of the talk show's weeklong "Big Secret" segment, and Osbourne, 60, was the first of the co-hosts to open up with her surprising confession.

"It's not like it's a dirty little secret," she said nervously before telling her story.

"When I was 25, I just moved to America," she began. "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."

A friend invited her to a club where she saw Leno performing his comedy routine, and Osbourne told her pal that she thought he was "very nice, very funny."

The pair decided to prank call him. "He liked my voice," she admitted, so she kept calling back and pretended to be a wrong number.

"One thing led to another," she continued. "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."

Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom are taking it one day at a time.

While the 29-year-old has been doing everything in her power to help her husband of four years overcome his substance abuse issues, the duo's relationship seems to be taking a backseat to his addiction and recovery.

In fact, a source tells E! News that "divorce seems imminent" for the two.

"Khloe gave Lamar an ultimatum: If he didn't get help, she'd end the marriage," the insider explained. "So far, he's ignoring her."

As for reports that Khloe's family is urging her to dump the NBA star in the wake of the scandal, the insider says it's not true.

"Her family is being as supportive as possible," says the insider. "They don't want to argue with her or make her even more upset. They know she's already heartbroken. They don't want to make things harder on her."

Odom checked in, and then out, of a treatment facility just last week after staying for less than a day.

Sources told E! News at the time that Khloe and the rest of the family had been urging Odom to seek help.

On Aug. 30, Odom was arrested for DUI on a Los Angeles freeway. He was booked at 3:54 a.m. and taken into custody on $15,000 bail.

When Miley Cyrus' new video for the power ballad "Wrecking Ball" first starts, you're left wondering, "Is this really a Miley video?" After all, the clip opens up on a close-up shot of the tearful singer. She's wearing minimal makeup, apart from red lipstick. Her tongue is in her mouth, she's not wearing any grills, and there's nary a tweaking teddy bear in sight. Also, there's no twerking.

And then the camera pulls back and she's naked and swinging on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer and you're all, "Oh, there it is."

Alternating between wearing white underwear and a tank top -- or nothing at all -- Cyrus clearly ignores all construction site guidelines when she uses a sledgehammer to bust apart a concrete room and writhes around on the rubble, People reports.

As the lyrics "All I wanted was to break your walls/All you ever did was wreck me" suggest, the Terry Richardson-directed video could symbolize a destructive relationship. Or, it could symbolize how she's tearing down preconceived notions about what the former Disney darling is really like.

A judge has dismissed two executives from a negligence lawsuit filed by Michael Jackson's mother against the promoters of his planned comeback concerts, The Associated Press reports.

Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos ruled Monday that lawyers for Katherine Jackson hadn't proven claims that Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live LLC, and promoter Paul Gongaware could be held responsible the death of the pop star.

The judge ruled that a jury should determine whether AEG Live hired the doctor later convicted of giving Michael Jackson a lethal overdose of anesthetic in June 2009.

Katherine Jackson's lawyers have attacked the actions of Gongaware and Phillips during the months leading to the death. They have claimed the men missed warning signs about the superstar's health and created a conflict of interest for his physician.

AEG Live denies any wrongdoing.

Demi Lovato's next stage will be on the page.

The singer-actress has agreed to a multi-book deal with Feiwel and Friends. The publisher, an imprint of Macmillan, announced the deal Monday, the AP reports.

The first book features tweets she had written about her life. It's called "Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year" and comes out in November.

Lovato also plans a memoir. The 21-year-old superstar has openly struggled with drug addiction and other personal troubles, some of which she has described on Twitter.

She will be seen this fall on several episodes of "Glee" and is in her second year as a mentor on "The X Factor."


A trespassing charge has been dismissed against a Maine man accused of showing up at Taylor Swift's Rhode Island vacation home, the AP reports.

The Westerly Sun reports that police decided to drop the charge after determining it would be difficult to prove that 55-year-old Joseph Bernatche of Portland, Maine, was on Swift's property when he handed her security guard a note telling the singer to call him.

Westerly police Lt. Phil Williams said it was not clear whether the guard had passed onto public property when he accepted the note.

Bernatche pleaded not guilty to the charge of willful trespass after his July 27 arrest.

Judge Melanie Quirk in 4th Division District Court dismissed the charge on Friday.
