Amy Smart Defends Husband Carter Oosterhouse Against Sexual Misconduct Claims

Amy Smart is speaking out to defend her husband Carter Oosterhouse against claims of sexual misconduct that were made against him this week.

The 41-year-old HGTV star was accused of coercing a makeup artist on one of his former shows into giving him oral sex multiple times, but Carter says they were in a consensual relationship.

“We are in a climate right now where it’s so wonderful and needed to have women coming forward to break their silence; it is vital and important for female equality. Period. A lot of the stories are horrific and need to be brought to light. This story, about my husband, Carter Oosterhouse, on the other hand, is now taking it too far and boundaries are being crossed,” Amy wrote in an Instagram post on Saturday (December 16).

“When you are in a CONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIP, then you need to take responsibility for engaging in that and not play victim. IF a relationship does not work out the way you want it to, then sorry, but that is the risk you take when getting intimate with another person,” she added.

“There are plenty of relationships I wish I could go back and make different choices about, but it was on me to decide. We need to take responsibility and learn from our mistakes and choices,” Amy continued. “Women are powerful and we need to be reminded of the strength and power we hold and learn ways to take care of ourselves so we don’t find ourselves saying yes when we really need to say no.”

“The article is very damaging and cruel to one of the most kindest, loving, non-aggressive men I have the privilege of knowing and I am so sorry for these salacious words being thrown around, they are extremely hurtful,” Amy said. “This type of reporting needs to stop, it’s so damaging for personal lives and careers and just not fair. Enough is enough, this is a plea to the writers, outlets and media… More due diligence needs to be done before crafting headlines and stories. Have discernment when you tell a story and please consider the source and story before just printing anything to get readers and viewers.”

    Wait, is she suggesting that because they were in a relationship, all sex was consensual? That’s not how it works. You can be raped by your husband, boyfriend, best friend, whoever.

    It would’ve been better for her to suggest ways both sexes can understand consent because obviously there’s a lot of confusion within relationships in addition to stranger/co-worker harassment.

    So she’s claiming that it’s impossible for husband, wives, boyfriends, etc to rape their significant other?? It’s irrelevant if they are in a consensual relationship or not. They can still have non-consensual sex aka rape.

    Looks like whatever is left of Amy Smart’s career is over. So far everyone that has been accused of rape or defended these rapists are being weeded out and thrown out of Hollywood one by one.

    I get she wants to defend her husband but she also has to use her head. She says her husband is loving and could never do something like that and maybe he genuinely couldn’t but how many people have believed the same thing about their other halves only to find out how wrong they were later on.

    Maybe he told her it was consensual knowing this could eventually came out, maybe the woman is making it up but to say that she knows for sure the girl is lying just because her husband said so will come back and bite her in the ass and could lose her fans and opportunities.

    well, i sure hope it isn’t proven otherwise. it’s ok to stay with your husband and support him if you want to choose that road, but to come out and make public statements on social media defending him is probably a bad idea. her husband admitted to being with the woman so it’s now he said/she said and Amy wouldn’t know anything other than what her hubby told her.

    I spent years working in the sexual assault support field. And even I can say that this has gotten out of hand. People are making accusations about everyone now and it’s apparently unnecessary to have any proof at all. This is actually making it harder for victims to be believed.
