Ryan Seacrest fell through a glass table at the Kodak Theatre

At the Kodak Theatre, where the American Idol 5 finale will take place tonight and tomorrow night, host Ryan Seacrest fell through a glass table yesterday, cutting himself and requring medical attention.

Pitching a segment about the incident, Extra sent out a press release that quotes Ryan. He tells the story:

“So I go walk over to see the board a little bit closer and there’s a glass table next to the board that’s framed by a little bit of metal… I decide ‘I’m 155 lbs,I can sit on this thing! … I fall between the framing, into the middle, my legs up in the air in a pool of glass. I felt like the biggest idiot!”

As Defamer points out, Ryan’s “feet-in-the-air, glass-in-the-ass position must have been an incredibly embarrassing one, especially when he had to concoct a believable explanation as to why the paramedics who immediately arrived on the scene shouldn’t dislodge him from the table, just fix his hair and wait for some firefighters to stroll by.”

People making fun of glass in his ass, beard problems, and a finale to host: quite the busy week for Ryan.
