Naya Rivera is one very happy Gleek these days!

While on the set of her new ProActiv commercial — she’s their latest spokesperson, y’know! — Naya dished to E! Online about Glee’s upcoming Season 3 guest stars, one of whom plays a big part in her character Santana’s life.

"Gloria Estefan is playing my mom so I'm really excited for that, it's like a huge honor,” said Naya. “I'm sure she will [sing]. You can’t let that go!”

Oh yes, we’re banking on a showww-stopping number from that Lopez family (with or without rapper Pitbull in the mix!).

And what about that reality diva-turned-Glee guest star who has already filmed her scenes at McKinley High —  none other than Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes?

“I’m a huge fan of all the Housewives franchises. When I found out that NeNe was coming, I was obviously flipping out,” Naya gushed. “[A]nd then I got to meet her and she’s awesome, she’s very sweet.”

Though they haven’t shared any scenes with each other, Naya revealed to Access Hollywood that she’s “pushing for them.” Especially since she’s expected to appear beyond the new year’s “Yes/No” episode.

So she’s excited to go back to work, even though she’s sorta working through the holiday break? Yes! Naya told E! of her post-holiday return to Glee, “I have so much to look forward to when we go back! Just those guest stars alone, and then just seeing where the rest of the season goes.”

If you haven’t marked your calendars already: all-new episodes of Glee Season 3 resume on January 17, 2012!
