A former HGTV makeup artist has accused home improvement personality Carter Oosterhouseof sexual misconduct. Kailey Kaminsky, who worked on Carter’s 2008 show “Carter Can,” tells the “Hollywood Reporter,” the handyman coerced her into performing oral sex while they were in production on the show.
Kaminsky claims Oosterhouse, who married actress Amy Smart in 2011, threatened her career if she didn’t comply so she gave in, saying they had about 10 to 15 encounters, going into graphic detail about them.
Oosterhouse denies he coerced Kaminsky but admits he and the makeup artist had an “intimate relationship.” “I had an intimate relationship with Kailey nine years ago and it was 100% mutual and consensual,” he said in a statement. “In no way did I ever feel, nor was it ever indicated to me, that Kailey was uncomfortable during our intimate relationship…The reality is that I knew it was consensual because she initiated it the first time and many of the 15 or so times we had relations thereafter.”
