Angela Bassett's Husband Didn't Know About Her Lady Gaga Sex Scene in AHS – Until He Watched the Episode
Angela Bassett waited until the episode aired to show hubby Courtney B. Vance the steamy-scary scene
Well, as it turned out, Bassett didn’t actually tell her husband of 19 years, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story star Courtney B. Vance, about that particular part of her script on the recently concluded American Horror Story: Hotel.
On Monday’s Conan, the actress, 57, opened up about how she kept the sex scene under wraps from Vance, 55, until it aired.
“I don’t remember coming home and telling him that,” Bassett said innocently, explaining that she never told him about the original nudity waiver she had to sign for the hit FX series.
“I just, you know, waited until the night [the episode aired] and said, ‘Come on, I want you to see something!’ … And so I’m showing it, and I have the remote and he’s like, ‘Woah, woah, woah, what’s about to happen?!’ I was like, ‘Well pause! What’s going on with you, are you going to be all right?’ ” she explained, laughing.

“I just eased him into it,” she joked.
O’Brien countered: “So what you’re basically saying is you went frame by frame!” as the star laughed and mimed pausing and unpausing the television.
Conan airs weeknights at 11 p.m. ET on TBS.
