First Ricky Martin – now Gloria Estefan?
EW is reporting that the legendary Cuban American singer is in talks to star on FOX's hit show Glee next year! This week, we reported that 39-year-old Martin was set to guest star on the show as a Spanish teacher – though it still has not been confirmed.
The new reports of Estefan guest starring in Glee is just speculation for now; we won’t get too excited until it’s been confirmed. EW also reports that 54-year-old Estefan would play the mother of Santana Lopez (played by Boricua actress Naya Rivera), a gay cheerleader at fictional McKinley High School.
On Tuesday night’s episode, Santana came out to her abuela about being gay. “I love girls the way that I’m supposed to feel about boys. It’s something that’s always been inside of me and I really want to share it with you because I love you so much and I want you to know me – who I really am,” Lopez told her abuelita in the episode. The teen is currently dating Brittany (played by Heather Morris).
According to EW, fans of the hit show would see Estefan appear in the same episode as Martin. A source close to the website said the cast of the show are big fans of Estefan. “And we love her music and her husband’s music,” the source said.
What are your thoughts about Estefan possibly joining Glee as a guest star?
