Kailey Kaminsky Accuses Carter Oosterhouse
Kaminsky said that Oosterhouse coerced her into performing repeated oral sex acts during the production of Carter Can. The negative experiences eventually led to Kaminsky's depression.
"At that point, I was a nervous wreck. I was so worn down from his advances, so I did: that day, on that occasion," said Kaminsky. "It was the first time. Then thereafter it was almost every time we would shoot - 10 to 15 times he put me in this position."
HGTV Host Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Following Kaminsky's revelations, Oosterhouse released a statement and said everything that happened between him and the makeup artist was consensual.
The host of The Greatest Christmas Light Fight also said that Kaminsky never told him that what was happening between them at that time made her feel uncomfortable.
"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 have relations thereafter," said Oosterhouse.
He added that he and Kaminsky considered each other friends outside of the workplace.
Kaminsky also claimed that she identifies as a lesbian, that's why she was surprised when Oosterhouse tried to make a move on her. The HGTV host, on the other hand, said that he was unaware of Kaminsky's sexuality.
