After two failed marriages and divorces, it seems that the outrageous but very popular and successful comedian-actor, Jim Carrey, 41, has finally found his match. It may sound like tsismis, but for us Filipinos, this would be something of interest ... his new girlfriend is a beautiful Filipina.
Maria Quiban, a famous weather forecaster for KCOP 13 in Los Angeles, seems to have caught Carrey's eyes and the two have been inseparable since they've met. Apparently, they met at the KCOP 13 TV station when Quiban came back from a dinner break and bumped into Carrey at the set of the Bruce Almighty.
Quiban has appeared in a couple of movies and got interested in show business at a young age when she was watching Sesame Street and noticed that there were no Asian actors in the show. She moved from the Philippines to Hawaii when she was only four. She has a son, Desmond, 16, from her previous relationship with a high school boyfriend, while Jim has a daughter, Jane, 15, from his first marriage. Quiban apparently is also a very funny lady who got attracted to Carrey because of his silliness and sense of humour. It seems that the two of them have a lot of things in common.
An American friend of Quiban said, "If Jim Carrey snags Maria, he's a very lucky man".
