Cara Santa Maria’s Love Life

The beautiful science communicator, through all the struggles, has been able to establish herself as a noteworthy person in the field of journalism and science.

Cara is indeed different from other women that you have seen on TV as she is more of a nerd and enjoys to discuss things that an ordinary person wouldn’t feel comfortable to hear. It is by no doubt that the beauty of Cara mixed with her appealing voice could make any man attracted to her.

However, she has a dating life of her own. 

The podcaster once dated an old man named Bill Maher in 2009. Her then-boyfriend is known to be a wise man, who has multiple dating affairs. Her relationship with playboy pundit Bill Maher, a journalist, created a lot of buzzes at the time. Back in 2010, they were spotted together arriving at the White House correspondents’ dinner in Washington.

Cara told that Bill is the one who encouraged her to go on television. She also confirmed that the split was mutual and amicable and they will continue to be friends and work together in the future.

Bill also confirmed stating that breakups are always tough especially with a wondrous person like Cara, and wants her to remain committed to her media science career.
