Ellen's Newest Bedfellow

Ryan Seacrest popped into the sack for a visit with Ellen DeGeneres ... making for the strangest bedfellows since Jessica Simpson hooked up with whatshisname.

Following a jump off a 3' high wall, Ellen tore a ligament when she bent over to pick up her dog, and has been "on pills," and propped up in a hospital bed for tapings this week. Ryan was interviewed in bed, despite no ear injuries from Sanjaya.

Ryan talked about how nice the current "Idol" contestants are, and Ellen pressed him to find out who the not-so-nice ones were.
