Gabby, I've really enjoyed the time we've spent together. But, it's obvious you and I are on two different levels, and we really want two different things out of a relationship. I respect myself too much to let you treat me like this. And it's pretty clear you're, like, some sort of an emotional cripple without the capacity to understand true love. And, I'm not gonna let you waste my valuable time, and, uh...step off, bitch.Alice to Gabby

Gabby Deveaux is a recurring character in seasons one, two, and six of The L Word. She is portrayed by Guinevere Turner and debuts in "Let's Do It".

Gabby is first introduced as the on again off again love interest of Alice during season 1. It is clear that Gabby is manipulative and untrustworthy, but Alice keeps coming back despite her friends' warnings that she is no good.

After a nasty breakup, the two become increasingly hostile towards one another. Throughout the earlier seasons, Gabby makes several appearances, often as Alice's adversary.

In the first episode of season 6, Alice follows Tasha to Papi's house where she finds Gabby hooking up with Papi. Gabby and Alice exchange some harsh remarks, including Gabby calling Alice the 'crasher', because she used to show up at parties she wasn't invited to.
