It’s already much talked about that Ricky Martin is in talks to join the list of Glee guests as a “hot Spanish teacher”. Now E! Online has dug up this gem of a potential spoiler:

One reliable insider hints, “Of course he will have to do a number with Brittany!”

Is there any other rite of passage for a Glee guest? Okay, so they haven’t all danced with Brittany, but we can have Glee dreams, right?

One thing that’s not a Glee dream is Santana’s (Naya Rivera) nightmare of a situation with her abuela explored in this week’s new episode, “I Kissed a Girl”, and if it is, I doubt she’ll be waking up from it anytime soon.

Though Santana did mention in passing that her parents do support her. Soon we’ll be meeting at least one half of the Lopez parental unit – Santana’s mother – a role already filled by the shoes of a well-known Latina performer, Entertainment Weekly tells us:

A source exclusively tells EW that pop superstar Gloria Estefan is currently in negotiations to play [SPOILER ALERT!!!]… Santana’s mother!

Of course a stint on Glee won’t go to waste for Estefan:

Our source tells us that the entire cast is “really really big fans of hers and we love her music and her husband’s music.” In fact, the plan is for the episode is to feature some of Estefan’s own music as well as some other bilingual tunes.

What do you think of the casting for Santana’s mother? What potential storylines can you imagine for Ricky Martin’s character, and how might it connect to a possible number with Heather Morris/Brittany?. Talk about your likes or dislikes in the comments!
