Alex (Shannyn Sossamon)
Alex was introduced in the pilot when she was looking for a new house with Sally, her girlfriend of five years. Sally’s excessive list of demands made it hard for them to find a proper house, and Alex soon developed a deep flirtatious friendship with their realtor Josslyn. In yet another rejected house Josslyn asked Alex if Sally was the one who wore the pants in the relationship. Alex said Sally got to call the shots since she was the one who paid the bills, and it didn’t bother her (even though it clearly did). Josslyn encouraged Alex to stand up for herself more and realize that Sally wasn’t treating her well. That seemed to have an effect on Alex and eventually she and Sally broke up and Alex moved into her own apartment.
After Josslyn kissed Alex at a party to chase away unwanted suitors the two hooked up, and at first they decided to just be friends-with-benefits as Josselyn said she wasn’t gay, but more importantly, didn’t do relationships. After a while, Alex said she couldn’t just be friends anymore and Josselyn agreed to try and be girlfriends instead. However, they broke up after Josslyn slept with her boss, and also admitted to agreeing to a relationship just so she could keep Alex as a friend.
