Playboy pundit Bill Maher is back on the market. The sharp-tongued host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, and his young girlfriend, Cara Santa Maria, have called it quits, In Touch can exclusively report. The couple dated for two years.

“They are taking time off as a couple and have decided to spend less time together," an insider tells In Touch. "Bill can never stay with one woman for more than a few years. He always gets bored and just wants to go back to playing the field.”

The leggy brunette, who began dating Bill in 2009, was not on his arm at this year's Vanity Fair Oscar party. Bill instead went to the star-studded soiree with his best friend, online media mogul Arianna Huffington. Bill and Cara “spent some time talking about marriage,” adds the insider, “but [the relationship] just ran its course. She was not exactly his type either."

Cara confirmed the split to In Touch, saying, “Our breakup was mutual and amicable. We continue to be friends and work together.”

Bill also confirmed, stating, "Breakups are always difficult, especially with an amazing person like Cara. I wish her nothing but the best, and remain committed to and excited by her career as a media science expert."
