Oh yes yes! Prettyyy passionate-filled pleassseee Ryan Murphy?!
It seems the legendary Gloria Estefan may reprise her role as Santana's (Naya Rivera) accepting, sacrificing mother Maribel Lopez in Glee season four!!
The Next star recently dished:
"I’m totally up for it, are you kidding me? I had a blast! I’m a big gleek myself and it was such a thrill to play Santana’s mom… I would love to sing with Naya. That would be my number one."
THIS WOULD BE EVERYTHING!! Gleeks unfortunately didn't get an ear-tickling number from Gloria last season, and hearing her powerhouse vocals paired with Naya's soulful, edgy voice would be absolutely dreamy!
But what storyline would Gloria's character fit in to?
"I would love to close that circle that we left open with Santana’s grandma. I know in my family I would never let that sit. If my mother were to talk like that to my daughter I would definitely want some kind of reunion or at least some resolutions out of that. I think that’s a crazy thing to have left open so we’re hoping to do that in this new season."
Santana had SUCH a close relationship with her Abuela until revealing her sexuality, and it would be so satisfying to have some sort of reconcilliation — at least, a meeting — between the two estranged family members.
Psyched to the ultimate max for Gloria's (hopeful) return!
