Sharon Osbourne's got a dirty little secret -- and her Talk cohost Sheryl Underwood is more than willing to share it! Though Osbourne revealed she had a fling with Jay Leno in her 20s as part of The Talk's special week of secrets last month, Underwood took it upon herself to share yet another one as part of her stand-up comedy routine at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
The 49-year-old comedian took the stage for "CBS Daytime After Dark: An Evening of Laughter in Support of Stand Up to Cancer" event, and recalled her first meeting with Osbourne, 61, while interviewing for The Talk. "They said, 'Can you go meet Sharon Osbourne?' I said, 'Ozzy's wife? For real, I can do that.' They tell you to go to the Polo Lounge. The Polo Lounge is a fantastic restaurant where all the movers and shakers go," she explained of the Beverly Hilsl boite, "where you see celebrities. So I go there and I'm going to meet Sharon Osbourne, I'm very excited," she recalled. "I'm going to get breakfast, right. I order my huevos rancheros over easy. I cut the yolk and it starts oozing it out, I take the bread and sop it up like a biscuit. Sharon throws up on me."
What did Underwood do?
"You know black people are like, 'S--t, she done thrown up on my outfit,'" she joked. "And I'm going to get blamed for this rich white lady throwing up in the Polo Lounge. So let me get her out of here. I said, You don't know me, I don't know you. This never happened.' I said, 'Can you drive?' She said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Get in your car.' So she drives off."
"Then I get home and it's, 'Welcome to CBS, you now have a job,'" Underwood explained of becoming a cohost on The Talk. "They say, 'Can you come to the welcome back barbecue at Julie Chen and Les Moonves' house?' Like black people, the only word I heard was barbecue."
At the party, Underwood came face-to-face with Osbourne again for the first time since the embarrassing incident. "On the other side of the party, Sharon Osbourne was telling the story of what happened after we separated," she continued. "She said she had a flu bug. When she got in her car, she vomited all over the car and she s--t all over the car. I'm thinking, I am so glad I didn't offer her a ride."
Before taking the stage to reveal Osbourne's mortifying secret, Underwood admitted to Us Weekly that she was nervous. "I'm scared to get on," she said. "I'm going to be talking about the story of how I got this job. It is the entire story all the way down to the phone calls down to an event that happened to me with one of my co-hosts."
Osbourne wasn't in the audience Tuesday to hear Underwood's comedy routine about her, but fellow cohost Julie Chen was -- and gave her a standing ovation.
