Amy Smart Talks Defending Husband Carter Oosterhouse Amid Misconduct Accusations

Amy Smart opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about speaking out in defense of her husband, Carter Oosterhouse, after he was accused of sexual misconduct by a former coworker.

“I think in life, nothing’s black and white,” the 42-year-old actress told Us at the Environmental Media Association Awards in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, May 22. “And I would never speak out against the Me Too experience, because I think it’s very powerful and I’m so, 100 percent on board with women on all levels finding equality in this world and not being quiet when things happen.”

“I also know that within peoples’ stories, you can’t always — people aren’t given truth detector tests before they are interviewed,” Smart continued. “People can say a lot. And I just felt really, like I needed to speak up for my husband because I just think there was a lot of not truth that was put out there.”

Kailey Kaminsky, a makeup artist who worked on Oosterhouse’s former series, Carter Can, claimed the HGTV star, now 41, pressured her into performing repeated acts of oral sex during production of the 2008 series. Kaminsky detailed the allegations in a December 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. 

“At that point I was a nervous wreck. I was so worn down from his advances, so I did: that day, on that occasion. It was the first time,” Kaminsky alleged to the publication. “Then thereafter it was most every time we would shoot — 10 to 15 times he put me in this position.”

Oosterhouse told Us Weekly in a statement at the time that the allegations were “upsetting” and their relationship was “100 percent mutual and consensual.”

Smart and the Trading Spaces star, who tied the knot in 2011, welcomed their first child via surrogate in December 2016. The Just Friends star defended her husband in a lengthy Instagram post at the time.

“You know, unfortunately, everything gets printed, even if it’s not true,” Smart told Us on Tuesday. “And that’s the travesty, really. There needs to be a slight more vetting process, more research.”

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
