  • Despite his busy schedule, Ryan Seacrest found time to repair a torn tendon in his elbow Wednesday.

    "I had a probe stuck into my right elbow," the 37-year-old "American Idol" host said on his KIIS-FM radio show. "They went in with a tiny little probe and they scraped some scar tissue from the tendon, because I tore the tendon from working out."

    Seacrest was awake for the procedure, though he "couldn't look" at what was happening. "But [I could feel] the pressure."

    The minor surgery took longer than Seacrest anticipated. "I didn't calculate suturing into my schedule," he said. "I thought it was an in-and-out, 12-minute procedure."

    The surgery lasted a few hours, though "it was very easy and practically noninvasive," said Seacrest, who's still going strong with girlfriend Julianne Hough, 23.
