Gloria Estefan to Play Santana's Mom on 'Glee'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 1st 2011 6:45AM
Gloria EstefanGloria Estefan is in talks to play Santana's mom on 'Glee.' How perfect a piece of casting would that be?! According to 'Entertainment Weekly,' Estefan will appear in the same January episode as Ricky Martin, who's reportedly playing McKinley High's Spanish teacher.

Martin is slated to headline two musical numbers in the episode, which will also feature Estefan's music and some other bilingual tunes. A source told 'EW' that the entire cast is "really really big fans of hers and we love her music and her husband's music."

This week on 'Glee' Santana came out of the closet only for her grandmother to disown her. However, Santana told her classmates that her (as yet unseen) parents were supportive of her coming out. So now the question is, if Glora Estefan is Santana's mom, then who's her dad?

Gloria Estefan Brings Flan and a Very Unique Table to 'The Rosie Show' (VIDEO)

Gloria Estefan, 'The Rosie Show'Gloria Estefan stopped by 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN) with a special treat for Rosie O'Donnell. It was both a treat and a challenge. As much as Rosie admitted to loving the Cuban food available at Estefan's restaurants, that appreciation only goes so far.

"They have horrible, disgusting mucus-y flan," she said of the dessert. She clarified, though, that this was her opinion of flan in general.

So, to prove to O'Donnell that her flan was "just fine," Estefan brought a sample with her, served on the back of the man who runs Estefan's company. Even if she didn't like the flan, at least she could cite a one-in-a-million dining experience.

Gloria Estefan, 'Chelsea Lately'Before she made it big with the Miami Sound Machine, a teenaged Gloria Estefan worked as an interpreter for the police. As such, she was on-hand to witness some pretty bizarre things. She shared a few of the more memorable things she saw on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

"I saw an old lady that looked she was 90 with lots of kilos of cocaine hidden in a hair dryer," she said. But the most interesting thing was something you couldn't even dream up.

"The topper was a nun that was trying to smuggle a salami in a rope in between her legs under her habit," she said. Chelsea Handler, understandably, had no response to this description. All she could do was laugh.

Kathy Griffin Explains Her Topless Photos (VIDEO)

Kathy Griffin on 'The Talk'Many women in Hollywood would treat leaked topless photos of themselves as an affront or scandal. Not Kathy Griffin. Today on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), she was thrilled to talk about some topless photos of her visit to Florida that have surfaced recently on the Web. She explained that they were taken when she flashed a passing cruise ship while Griffin was staying with Gloria Estefan.

"My whole career I've dreamed of a mug shot, like with the Nick Nolte hair," she said, "or topless or bottomless photos. And I finally made a dream come true."

Griffin said when a cruise ship passed by Estefan's private beach, Estefan said she flashed the ships all the time. Griffin took it as a challenge. She didn't find out later that Estefan was lying. By then, it was too late for everyone.

Gloria Estefan' Talks About Her Scary Household Competition on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 15th 2011 8:30PM
Gloria Estefan on 'The Talk'On Friday's 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Gloria Estefan talked about how she and her husband spent the first five years of their marriage trying to scare each other. It turned into a competition, Estefan said, even though her husband usually acts on the spur of the moment and Estefan takes more time to plan. But no one is safe.

One of her husband's favorite scare tactics involves catching Estefan in the bathroom. "Usually, he waits 'til I'm naked, about to step in the shower, and then he'll just walk in mysteriously and at the last minute go, like, 'boo!' " Estefan said. "Getting scared naked is not cute."

Not even the family cook is immune. According to Estefan, her husband will hide in the back of the cook's car and jump out after she's driven away. So when you see that ad on Craigslist looking for a new cook for the Estefan household, think twice about answering it.

Miley CyrusLast night I went to a taping of the second installment of Idol Gives Back at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. This year the charities that benefited were Malaria No More, Children's Defense Fund, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, Children's Health Fund, and Save the Children.

Keep in mind, there will be spoilers. It's not like I found out the secret to Lost, but I figured I would still give fair warning. The show will air on Wednesday April 9th at 7:30 pm ET / PT. For what happened at the taping and in the press room, read on after the jump. And check back for Jason's review Wednesday night.
