Meiko's back in Japan and appeared on some morning TV show.
I noticed none of her pictures in her blog from her trip (Nagasaki, then Thailand) had her wearing that eyepatch. Then it's back on for the TV show. Maybe the lights were bright or she's still supposed to wear it, but I think she's now kayfabing a bit and selling the eye injury for the public.
Speaking of the Thailand trip, she apologized for not as many posts and photos as she planned. Apparently she was taking pictures, emailing, and posting on the Internet with her phone and she forgot to bring her battery charger. So her battery died and all of the chargers for sale in Thailand weren't compatible. Finally she found another Japanese tourist and "ambushed" him/her and got her phone recharged. I'm picturing Satomura giving some poor old guy a Death Valley Bomb and Scorpion Rising and stealing his phone
