Amy Smart Standing By Husband Carter Oosterhouse Despite Sexual Misconduct Allegations In His Past

Her husband of six years, HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a former makeup artist, and now Amy has responded with a very strong piece on Instagram proclaiming his innocence and defending her family. Related: Kelly Cutrone Claims Russell Simmons Tried To Rape Her She shared the picture you can see (above) of Carter and ther 11-month-old daughter, Flora, with the full caption (below): "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. 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. 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. 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. 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. #lovethesetwo" Wow. Obviously, years-old allegations from Oosterhouse's old show Carter Can are not something that Smart is taking lightly -- or seriously. Definitely not shy about standing by her family and standing up to what she believes is a consensual relationship that shouldn't be included in the annals of sexual misconduct. Thoughts, Perezcious readers?! Let us know in the comments (below). [Image via Instagram.].....»»

HGTV Star Carter Oosterhouse Accused Of Coercing Makeup Artist Into Performing Oral Sex

Carter Oosterhouse has been accused of sexual misconduct! The HGTV star carpenter allegedly forced former makeup artist Kailey Kaminsky to perform oral sex on him during their time working together on his 2008 show Carter Can. Detailing the allegations in a piece for The Hollywood Reporter, she says he threatened her employment, and didn't stop pressuring her [...] Carter Oosterhouse has been accused of sexual misconduct! The HGTV star carpenter allegedly forced former makeup artist Kailey Kaminsky to perform oral sex on him during their time working together on his 2008 show Carter Can. Detailing the allegations in a piece for The Hollywood Reporter, she says he threatened her employment, and didn't stop pressuring her into it. She was later hospitalized for depression from it, and ended up losing her job on the show. Related: Kelly Cutrone Claims Russell Simmons Tried To Rape Her Kailey, who identifies as a lesbian, recalled: "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. Then thereafter it was most every time we would shoot — 10 to 15 times he put me in this position." It was a year into her employment when he began, claiming Carter propositioned her during an errands trip for shooting in Traverse City, Michigan, adding she kept refusing his advances. She shared he "didn't register" her rebuffs: "He's like, 'You know what would be a good idea? If you went down on me.' I was shocked — it was so random. I said, in my sarcastic way, 'Well, that's not sexual harassment at all.' He said, 'I just think it would be fun.' I made it clear that I did not think it would be fun. Still, I thought he was just goofing around... It was as if he had tunnel vision. He was determined to get a blow job." Wow. Kailey alleges he continued to pester her with requests, including one instance when he propositioned her in the car: "He pulled off the road and said, 'Do you enjoy your job?' I said I did and in fact would like to work more, handling more of his personal appearances outside the show. He said, 'Well, I can help you with that. But you need to do something for me.'" On the 10 and 15 occasions she felt coerced to perform oral sex on him, Carter further "degraded" her: "When he would assault me, he insisted on finishing on my face — every time — knowing that I had to go back out and work. I asked him about that. He said, 'It's just what I wanted to do.'" While she didn't tell the show's director, Kailey did confide in two female producers, who seemed concerned. Related: Dustin Hoffman Allegedly Exposed Himself To A Teen Girl A year later, she went forward and told one of the officials at the show's production company High Noon, Sonny Hutchison, about her account, which led to Carter calling her up on the phone, saying: "'I'm so sorry. I thought it was mutual.'" And she added: "He said he would do whatever he could to help me out. But I never heard anything from him again." Carter has responded to her allegations, describing them as "upsetting." And while he says they had "an intimate relationship," he insists "it was 100 percent mutual." He shared that it was never "indicated to me in any way that Kailey was uncomfortable," and "I would have never done anything that I was not sure was mutually agreeable. 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 oral sex thereafter." And talking about their phone call, he shared this account: "I did say I thought it was mutual — because it was. I didn't apologize because I never did anything wrong. That's the God's honest truth. I felt bad that she was, in that moment, not-super-positive." You can read his full statement (below): "First off, let me say that I am very passionate about what is a happening right now with the #metoo movement, especially because I have so many strong woman in my life, like my wife, mother, sister and of course my little baby girl. We are in a time of change for society and I am behind it 100%. I had an intimate relationship with Kailey 9 years ago and it was 100% mutual and consensual. In no way did I ever feel, nor was it ever indicated to me, that Kailey was uncomfortable during our intimate relationship. I would have never done anything that I was not sure was mutually agreeable. 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. We were together outside of work and I considered her a friend. I want to address a couple of the things she said. First, I didn't have anything to do with her not being invited back to the show — that was a producer decision. And as for the fact that she identifies as a lesbian — I didn't know that — all I knew was that she was in a sexual relationship with another guy who worked on the show. It's upsetting that she now feels this way, I only wish her the best and truly hope that she can move forward." Carter's wife Amy Smart has yet to comment. We'll continue to keep you updated.

Dream"s Melissa Schuman Isn"t The First Person To Accuse Nick Carter Of Sexual Assault…

Nick Carter has been accused of sexual assault more than once. In case you missed it, prior to Dream alum Melissa Schuman's shocking rape allegation against the Backstreet Boys member, Radar Online dug up a case file where a fan accused Carter of sexual assault back in '06. Though you may already know, it's this allegation that [...] Nick Carter has been accused of sexual assault more than once. In case you missed it, prior to Dream alum Melissa Schuman's shocking rape allegation against the Backstreet Boys member, Radar Online dug up a case file where a fan accused Carter of sexual assault back in '06. Though you may already know, it's this allegation that inspired Melissa to come forward with her own story. Related: Oliver Stone Hits Back At Sexual Harassment Allegations Apparently, the webloid obtained the damning case file from the Key West Police Department, where the alleged victim detailed an assault she suffered at the hands of the boy bander. Per the report, the unnamed victim met Carter through her cousin as he flew the two down to Key West, FL at the end of March 2006. After getting picked up by a friend of Nick's, the cousin duo dropped off their luggage at a residence and proceeded to a Denny's to meet up with the pop star and his pal, Rob Kalouch. Supposedly, the conversation became unsavory also immediately, as the accuser recalled: "[Nick] started talking to us about how sometimes he may send girls down, that it's not the right girls, and that they're scared that's how it's gonna be for us. Like, we were gonna be ugly and fat and stuff. But when we came they said that they knew that it was us and were happy." The ladies then accompanied Nick and his squad to check out some real estate before heading out to dinner. She continued: "Rob, Nick's friend, he would keep putting his arm around me or something like that. I just wanted to be nice and I didn't want to, like, put him off or anything like that. But I would, like, try to move." The woman became uncomfortable with the situation and decided to tell the men that she had a boyfriend back home in Wisconsin. Reportedly, the men "seemed upset" upon learning this tidbit. Despite informing them of her relationship status, Nick and co. allegedly still pursued her. This is where things take a dark turn. When they returned to Nick's friend's pad, the woman claimed Kalouch brought her into a bathroom. She remembered: "He pulled me into the bathroom and Nick came in. They were trying to take my top off. I had a tube top on. Um, and they did get it off, and they were touching my chest. And so I was just trying to get my clothes back. I did get them back and I put them back on." After Carter left, Rob "put" the woman on her knees and is said to have demanded: "He didn't, like, throw me on the floor or anything, but he put me on the floor and he said, ‘We have to do this.' And he already had his – his dick – his dick out." Ugh. Through tears, the woman says she performed oral sex for "maybe a minute." Nick returned to the bathroom with his genitals out and didn't notice the then 20-year-old girl was crying until half way through. The woman explained: "I started crying. Then Nick came him. And he had his dick out already, too, and they put my – they moved my head to Nick's dick and then Nick asked why I was crying. He yelled at Rob and said that, ‘You always do this. You always make the girls cry.' He's like, ‘You can't do that.'" The woman said she didn't try to fight back as she "wasn't sure what they were capable of." It's said Carter eventually tried to comfort the woman and then left the bathroom again. As for Rob, he allegedly took the girl's hand and placed it on his penis while kissing her. She stopped the assault by "pushing" him away and by "kicking and struggling." Related: Celebs Mourn David Cassidy Online When the men left the home, the victim called her boyfriend and a friend for help, but they couldn't do much because she didn't know where she was. Upon Carter and co.'s return, the complainant pretended to be asleep. This reportedly did not dissuade Rob from attempting to assault her again. The accuser added: "Rob came and he had his, you know his dick out and he was trying to unbutton my pants and I would – you know, that's when I just pushed him away. I said, ‘I'm tired. I can't do this.' I was like, ‘Just leave me alone.'" In her statement, the woman said both Carter and Kalouch forced her to put her mouth on their genitals without consent. The young woman returned home on March 27, where she had a sexual assault examination kit completed at a hospital. She also reported the incident the West Allis Police Department. Nick and Rob both refused to speak to investigators and no charges were ever brought against the friends. The case was eventually closed in June 2006. On why no legal action was pursued, a detective wrote in the report: "The case has been thoroughly investigated, but because of your desire not to pursue or file charges, or due to other arrangements made with the suspect, no further action will be taken by us at this time." Carter's rep has since downplayed this controversy, as they noted in the following statement: "The fact is that there was insufficient evidence to charge my client (or the friend for that matter), and therefore no charges were ever pursued by the District Attorney. Nick had no physical contact whatsoever with the woman, and definitely did not 'force her to perform oral sex on him' or 'insert his fingers in her vagina.' The woman fabricated the claims against Nick for one simple reason – she was hoping to extort money from him." Huh. Nick has denied this allegation. [Image via Charlie Steffens/WENN.].....»»

Another Show About Women Still Not Over All The Sexual Assault Starring Mariska Hargitay

Women still won’t let the spotlight on sexual assault in the entertainment industry die. The entire nation is possibly on the brink of being dragged into World War 3 but making sure a man asked if it was okay first before fondling your titty is way more important. I could think of a thousand more […] The post Another Show About Women Still Not Over All The Sexual Assault Starring Mariska Hargitay appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Women still won’t let the spotlight on sexual assault in the entertainment industry die. The entire nation is possibly on the brink of being dragged into World War 3 but making sure a man asked if it was okay first before fondling your titty is way more important. I could think of a thousand more interesting topics to do a documentary on than sexual assault. I’m not saying that sexual assault isn’t a serious offense, but holy cow we get it. You’re now beating a dead horse. Women want to be allowed to craft an entire career using their tits to get ahead and the moment the amount of money offered isn’t enough to justify an overweight director ejaculating onto your armpit hair, it’s assault. Somehow the majority of these men always fit the same description. Guys who women would always swipe left on 10 out 10 times in every Tinder search unless his profile picture was his bank account. Mariska Hargitay plays a detective on TV instead of interviewing real detectives who handle real sexual assault cases, we rather listen to Mariska’s take on it. Hargitay, who stars as Detective Olivia Benson in the police procedural “Law and Order: SVU,” has turned her clout as an advocate for victims into the upcoming HBO documentary, “I Am Evidence,” where she also serves as producer. “I feel like I was given a gift with this role. I was given a platform. It was a way for me to respond. I’ve had the privilege of having had so many survivors share their stories with me, and I feel a responsibility to that,” Hargitay said. She admits backing the documentary was driven by her “own outrage” of the way victims of sexual assault are treated by the system. “People say, ‘why did you make this movie?’ I said because I was really mad,” Hargitay said. Hollywood women are always victims and documentaries like this just reinforce the idea that regret also counts as rape. Where’s the outrage for men when they’re victims of extortion attempts by women who’ve felt like they were wham, bam, thank you ma’amed. There’s not a patriarchal conspiracy going on that elite women suggest. Being accused of sexual assault sounds heinous on paper and it’s an accusation that follows a man around forever, even if it wasn’t true. Women are sucking all of the fun out of casual sex. Maybe Mariska can make a game show called “Is It Sexual Assault?” instead. Contestants can give feedback and score points if they correctly guess whether common sexual practices can be considered assault. And I’ll finally get my answer on whether or not sticking my finger in a hole made with my other hand to attract the attention of a girl at the bar is inappropriate or not.

As […] The post Aaron Carter Is Misunderstood; Only Slightly Into Men appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Part-time homosexual Aaron Carter is concentrating on being more annoying than before. What is a man to do when he comes out of the closet and no one cares? Retract your statement and blame the blogs for the bisexual blunder. Carter is completely off the rails for believing anyone cares about his sexual preferences. As long as he’s not dating children or donkeys than whatever tickles his fancy is fine. The gay taboo train left the station a long time ago. The world has now focused their attention on ex-male Olympic athletes who win Woman of the Year awards when they haven’t officially been a woman for at least a year. So unless Carter plans on competing in 2022 then promptly cutting his dick off after getting a gold medal, we don’t care.  Carter shared in a Hollywood Life podcast that his previous comments about being bisexual were “misconstrued.” “It was more so just a story that happened when I was like 17 with somebody,” he said. “And I can find men and women attractive, but when it comes down to it, I think it was a little misconstrued. I see myself being with a woman and having kids. I want to have a family.” “I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-year-old I started to find boys and girls attractive,” he said in a since-deleted tweet. “There were years that went by that I thought about it, but wasn’t until I was [17 years old], after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with,” he explained. Carter exploited himself for attention and now that it backfired he wishes to backtrack. I understand that labels are limiting but it’s hard to deny not wanting to play for the other team when you still wear their jersey. The dyed seafoam green hair with the shoulder to shoulder collar long sleeve shirts are dead giveaways. The only person that could probably get away with a look like that in 2018 and believably still lust after women is Peter Wentz. And that’s only because Sugar We’re Going Down and Dance, Dance still hold up while I Want Candy was probably Carter covering up his sexuality when he began to lust after another young man’s lollipop.  Photo Credit: Getty Images The post Aaron Carter Is Misunderstood; Only Slightly Into Men appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

In a new Rolling Stone report, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of impropriety spanning over 30 years. Related: Al Franken Accuser Leeann Tweeden Doesn't Want The Senator To Step Down Actress Jennifer Steele claimed the 64-year-old raped her twice, once at a photo shoot and another time at his apartment, in December of 1997. She told the mag of him allegedly cornering her in a bathroom: "He was like, 'I need to look at your ass so I can get hard for the photo shoot.' Then it turned into him basically sticking it in without me knowing it was happening. I said flat-out no. It stopped, but it didn't stop soon enough after I said no ... During the whole photo shoot I was thinking, 'Was I just raped? What the fuck just happened?' [But] by the time the shoot was done, I had it in my head that I had somehow exaggerated it and it was an honest mistake ... He just kinda keeps going and pretends like you didn't say anything." When asked why she didn't report the crime, Steele replied: "I was pretty promiscuous. I was a stripper. I couldn't prove it." Adding: "He hides behind other women's scarlet letters, is what he does. [He] know[s] if someone's a porn star and they say they've been raped, people aren't gonna take it seriously." Another adult performer, Kendra Sunderland, said Jeremy sucked her breasts without permission at a Dallas expo in 2015: "People expect this from him. If I went and got mad on Twitter, people would say, 'That's Ron.' But if I said a fan did it, they'd say 'That's not OK, that's crossing a line.'" As you can probably imagine, it's very difficult for sex workers to come forward with their stories considering the stigma and gray areas that are involved when it comes to being in the adult entertainment industry. Not to mention, sex workers who come forward are "likely to be blamed or disbelieved by law enforcement." With that said, Rolling Stone spoke with several people in the industry who said Jeremy's behavior is not standard. Popular performer Julia Ann said: "I think Ron is an anomaly, and you'd be hard-pressed to say there's any other person who's been able to publicly sexually harass or assault people and get away with it. It's one thing for someone to do it in their hotel room or their condo or their office or their car, but he can do it in the middle of a convention ... When there are dollar signs involved, the lines [of consent] actually get drawn much more distinctly." In 2003, Jeremy was investigated for criminal sexual conduct after a fan alleged he held her down and raped her in his Michigan hotel room. Charges were not pressed. Also in 2003, performer Ginger Lynn said Jeremy raped her while they were on location shooting a film in 1983. In 2007, another fan told police the porn star reached inside her bra, pulled out her breast, and signed it without her permission at an expo in Miami. Jeremy told TMZ at the time: "I probably signed about 150 boobs that weekend, all of which I sign 'RJ' with a heart.'" There are just a handful of the many explosive accusations against Ron for years of abuse. Related: Sylvester Stallone Allegations Bring Half-Sister's Rape Claims Back Into The Spotlight In a statement to the magazine in response to the many allegations, Jeremy said in full: "Let me first say, that I'm fully in support of the women and men who have been coming forward about being sexually assaulted. These real predators need to be taken down. My reputation is currently being smeared by these old allegations that have already been investigated and dismissed. However, I understand how social change works, and if my reputation has to get a bit tarnished along the way for the better treatment of women, and men, so be it. I will be there to support all people, men and women, that have bravely come forward to attack this systemic problem. As for the allegations against me, these allegations have been online and in print for quite sometime. This is not new or breaking news. I'm shocked you guys are picking this up after it's been reported on over and over by other publications and has been proven over and over to be false. I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of "Groping". I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this. And these are old allegations. Check, Anything about me appearing in court or in jail, is public record. I was only arrested 20 years ago when I was fighting for Freedom Of Speech with Hal Freeman. The police who looked into the groping charges have always said that they watch the video from the event or whatever and that I did nothing wrong or illegal. They then ask if I want to press charges against The people making false accusations. I never have. As for the charges of Groping, I say yes, I AM A GROPER. And by groper, I mean I get paid to show up to these shows, events, and photo shoots and touch the people and they touch me. I'm not the young stud I was, but I still draw a crowd. And we are talking about things that are within reason, in front of police officer's and security that are always there as well as the tons of cameras And the general public. But seriously, if you were going to be around Ron Jeremy, wouldn't you assume that I'd be a little bit touchy Feely? Yes. This is what I do for a living. I am not Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Weinstein, or Cosby. For over 40 years fans and fellow performers pay money and wait in long lines to meet me. They want autographs, pictures, to flirt with me, physically grab me in different areas (usually my clothed penis), they ask me to touch them and many ask to have me sign their boobs. When I take photos with fans and other performers at these conventions, signings or events, I do sometimes kiss people on the lips or the cheek, sign boobs or whatever they want. There is "put on" flirting and touching for the photos. This is exactly what people pay me for at conventions. The female performers flirt and touch too. It's what we do. If you watch these videos that Ginger Banks put out of me "groping," you see that everyone in the videos is laughing and "groping" too. That I'm not running up to them, they come to me. If anyone was ever made to feel uncomfortable by ANY of our interactions, I'm deeply sorry. That was never my intention and it breaks my heart in half. I hope that everyone reading this keeps in mind that I do tons of these conventions and adult signings. I take pictures with about 500,000 people each all over the world and have every year, for 40 years. These touching complaints are the exact same thing everyone else stood in line for. They couldn't be happier. I have never raped anyone. If anyone continues those claims, that is defamation. I will sue them in court. I'm not saying that I never met these people or interacted with them. I don't remember most of them, how could I? I may have seen hundreds people on those days. A girl said that I took her into a back room at a convention? Now this I remember. No one pushed anyone anywhere, she and a girl friend of hers asked if they could come in to the back tent with me. "Back room" was actually a small tent where the performers went to relax and eat crafty. There were seven other people in the small tent including security guard. And we took some sexy photos with each other as people looked on or looked at their phones. If I did anything wrong, that security guard who works for the convention, would have taken me down and called the police. And someone claimed that in hedonism in Jamaica, which is a nudist swingers resort, I tried to massage their leg years ago? Why is this even in an article? I am very happy that the scum bags of the earth are being taken down. They deserve it. But these allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. In 40 years, I've never been punched by a boyfriend or anyone ever. I have been heartbroken over these allegations. Not because it affects me or my business, I can take that, but because they are lies and there are actual women and men out there Who have been victims of serious sexual assault, and so on, that are trying to get their voices heard. Again, It does bother me that there might be women out there that had some buyers remorse after our interactions. But I did nothing wrong or out of the ordinary for these conventions or events. These events are supposed to be a fun time. That video that Ginger Banks made looks like a pro Ron Jeremy video if you turn off the sound. Everyone in the videos is having fun with me. This really is a non-story. However I'm glad I had a chance to speak my side." Thoughts??? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Gnarly. Shaun White A Douchebag, But Not For Sexual Assault

Anyone watching the Olympics last night knows first and foremost that North Korean figure skaters are only allowed to pick outfits inspired by Tron, and secondly that snowboarder Shaun White is probably the biggest douchebag in the world. He’s a late-to-the-game Gen X-er who is moved to tears by his own success and says things […] The post Gnarly. Shaun White A Douchebag, But Not For Sexual Assault appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Anyone watching the Olympics last night knows first and foremost that North Korean figure skaters are only allowed to pick outfits inspired by Tron, and secondly that snowboarder Shaun White is probably the biggest douchebag in the world. He’s a late-to-the-game Gen X-er who is moved to tears by his own success and says things like “gnarly.” If he was a surfer he would say “tubular” and if he was a skateboarder he would be Bart Simpson. I think he actually voiced all of the original Ninja Turtles. Anyway the thirty-one-year-old White – who nabbed his third gold medal yesterday in a fake sporting event – isn’t making headlines for being insufferable, and is instead making the round for, you guessed it, sexual assault allegations. Anyone in the world right now at any given time is only three degrees separated from being exposed as a rapist, and while in my wildest dreams White actually be one of the offenders and have his medals stripped away (“tots bummer brah”) it sounds like the allegations – to which he defended himself against during a press conference yesterday – are “so bogus dude.” While responding to a question from an ABC reporter about the assault allegations White faced in 2016, White offended the masses with what we in 2018 can categorize as victim shaming lite: I’m here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip and stuff. I am who I am, and I am proud of who I am. My friends, you know, love me and vouch for me and I think that stands on its own. After a fierce and vapid backlash, White took to the Today show this morning to share his apology, stating that he made a: …poor choice of words to describe such a sensitive subject. I was so overwhelmed with just wanting to talk about how amazing today was and share my experience. I’ve grown as a person over the years. It’s amazing how life works and twists and turns and lessons learned. Every experience in my life I feel like it’s taught me a lesson. I definitely feel like I am a much more changed person than I was when I was younger. I am proud of who I am today. In two separate statements White proclaimed that he’s proud of who he is, which should really be the offense that we’re focusing on. Gen freaking X. White is I guess in a band, and his bandmate Lena Zawaideh filed a lawsuit against him in 2016, claiming that he stuck his hand down his pants in front of her and pushed it forward – simulating an erection, that he made her watch porn involving poop, and that he forced her to change her appearance for the band’s performances, among other allegations. White denied everything – with his lawyer literally called the allegations “bogus” – and he and Zawaideh settled out of court. As I’ve stated on here many times, the public only has a certain amount of fucks to give, and each time a stunt ho comes forward with stunt ho allegations, he or she is only taking the spotlight away from actual victims with actual stories to tell. The breadth of the spotlight is not infinite, and right now Zawaideh is taking up more than her fair share. This recent smoke and mirrors controversy surrounding White’s use of the word “gossip” at a press conference is only one more nail in the #MeToo coffin. In the probable words of White ‘Quit icing my grill man!”   Shaun White on if he thinks the sexual harassment allegations against him will tarnish his legacy: “You know, honestly, here to talk about the Olympics, not gossip.” pic.twitter.com/45I1DjTB2u — USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) February 14, 2018   In response to my question whether sexual harassment claims against him would tarnish his legacy, @shaunwhite said he wouldn’t answer the question, called the allegations against him “gossip.” @cbrennansports notes not single female reporter allowed to ask a question at presser pic.twitter.com/sZAjmkchYj — Matt Gutman (@mattgutmanABC) February 14, 2018  Photo Credit: Instagram   The post Gnarly.

Was Wonder Woman Star Lynda Carter Sexually Abused By Bill Cosby???

Lynda Carter came forward with her own #MeToo story on Monday — but did she tell us more than she said out loud?? In an interview with The Daily Beast, the original Wonder Woman revealed she too had been the victim of sexual abuse but refused to come out and say who her abuser was. Video: Donald [...] Lynda Carter came forward with her own #MeToo story on Monday -- but did she tell us more than she said out loud?? In an interview with The Daily Beast, the original Wonder Woman revealed she too had been the victim of sexual abuse but refused to come out and say who her abuser was. Video: Donald Trump Accusers Continue To Speak Out On Sexual Misconduct She did, however, give some big clues, starting with the fact he's currently facing consequences and had violated "a lot of people." She said: "He's already being done in. There's no advantage in piling on again." But then, apparently apropos of nothing, she added: "And I believe every woman in the Bill Cosby case." Um, what? Why would she specifically mention Cosby? Was she trying to tell us something?? The Daily Beast seemed to wonder the same thing, adding in this note: (Later, The Daily Beast asked Carter's representative if Cosby himself had been Carter's alleged abuser. The representative responded that, as per her wishes during our interview, "she doesn't want to name any names.") Hmm... The first season of Wonder Woman appeared on ABC from 1975 to 1976. In '76, Carter appeared with Cosby on Cos, her fellow network star's short-lived answer to Saturday Night Live. The next season, Wonder Woman moved to CBS. We don't have any way of knowing for sure that's who Carter is talking about, but there are only so many men currently facing the music for multiple accusers... Speaking of which, what is her abuser facing now? She stays coy at this question, saying: "Well, whatever it is, it isn't enough." So why not come forward with his name, and add her voice to the chorus calling for justice? "I can't add anything to it. I wish I could. But there's nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it. I'm just another face in the crowd. I wish I could, and if I could I would. And I would talk about it. But it ends up being about me, and not about the people who can talk about it. I don't want it to be about me, it's not about me. It's about him being a scumbag. So legally I can't do anything. If I could I would." Perhaps it's the age Carter came up in that has her choosing to leave his name out. Related: Trump Straight Up Calls His Sexual Misconduct Accusers Liars On Twitter She goes on to say she faced harassment throughout her early career, for instance: "There was a cameraman who drilled a hole in my dressing room wall on the Warner Brothers lot." That one got caught and "drummed out of the business" but usually she and others would keep quiet about it for fear of repercussions like blacklisting: "Who you are going to tell except your girlfriends and your circle of friends? You'd say or hear, ‘Stay away from that guy.' ‘Watch out for this casting director.' And so you would hear it from other people, other people would hear it from other people. ‘Watch out for so and so.' That's how you protected yourself: through the grapevine." For those men who still don't know what kind of behavior is unacceptable, Carter has a clear distinction: "There is a difference between a guy hitting on you, which everybody has, and a guy assaulting you. If someone is hitting on you aggressively, you go, ‘Back off' and he does. But then there is the guy who locks you in a room, or who corners you. There is a huge difference when you can't speak up, or you get blackballed if you say anything. The repercussion of all this has been #MeToo." Lynda is happy about the change coming with #MeToo and #TimesUp but she isn't surprised at all by everything coming out: "I asked my husband if he was surprised by all the #MeToo stories. ‘Yeah, I'm surprised,' he said. Ask any woman, they're not surprised. It's been going on for years. It's not news to us, but it is news to you. We've been trying to tell you. We've been trying to tell you for a long time and you haven't listened." We're listening, Lynda. And we're reading between the lines, too. Do YOU think she's talking about Cosby???
