Naya Rivera's Santana is notorious for her stellar sing skills and dance moves on "Glee," but she's also a hot New Directions name because she's one of the series' openly gay characters.

While chatting with Craig Ferguson on "The Late Late Show" on Friday night (above), Rivera revealed that she has a strong lesbian fan base.

"I have a lot of lovely ladies who love me, so I'm pretty excited about that," she told Ferguson.

Although Santana parted ways with her long-term girlfriend Brittany (Heather Morris) at the end of Season 3, Rivera told THR that she has high hopes for them in the long run.

"Long-term? My fingers are crossed for [Brittany and Santana]," she said.

"Glee" returns on Thurs., March 7 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
