The Real Story Behind Meredith Vieira’s Black Eye

When you see a woman with a black eye some people may conclude the worse, some sort of physical abuse; however, that is not always the case.

Meredith Vieira is such an example. After coming home from a trip to Los Angeles, she put her suitcase near the bathroom door. In the middle of the night she woke up and needed to use the restroom. Here is what happened next.

Meredith neglected to turn on the light. In the dark she made her way to the bathroom, a route she is very familiar with. She was quoted as saying, “So, I go to the bathroom, and I forget the suitcase is there. And I fell over the suitcase, and I hit my head on the rim of the dressing room table…”

Fortunately, outside of an obvious black eye, her fall did not do any more serious internal injuries. A CT Scan confirmed the injuries were only superficial.

Meredith’s black eye is a good reminder to keep your floor clear of boxes, clothes, rugs, shoes or suitcases. Simeple things can cause people to trip. In the dark a fall can be very dangerous.
