Gloria Estefan Guests on Glee’s Graduation Season Finale

Latin icon Gloria Estefan premieres as Santana’s (Naya Rivera) mother Maribel on the season finale of Glee this Tuesday. In the episode, the Glee club says goodbye to the graduating seniors and Santana’s mom takes on her grandmother. Estefan previewed her appearance to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I tried to play the character that since she's married to a doctor, I thought she could help put him through school and she sacrificed her career because she loved music and she wanted to be famous and sing -- but then she had Santana and dedicated her life to her,"

"[Maribel's mother] was a really tough cookie and probably told her, 'You've got to get a job because you have a daughter now and you can't be looking for fame or following your music,'" she says. "Maybe she squelched her dream there."

Glee Review: "Rumours" and Real Moments

“Rumours” was another good meta-episode for Glee, acknowledging the inevitable gossip that plagues any pop-culture phenom. The show has gotten its share in various tabloids and blind items, and that's the tongue-in-cheek problem facing the Glee Club this week. Self-awareness of its own pop-culture presence is something this show has always had fun with. They also went there with the couple squish-names, my favorite being “Pizes.”

The real world overlaps were everywhere in this episode. Glee Club gossip included Quinn and Kurt (Chris Colfer) as cheaters (like those Mark Salling/Naya Rivera rumors), questions about Santana and Sam's sexuality (like those Darren Criss questions), and the insinuation that Will (Matthew Morrison) would rather be on Broadway than leading the Glee Club (like Morrison wanting a solo singing career).
