She sleeps with Sloan and later gets a divorce from Derek.

Recently she's revealing feelings toward Alex Karev, who has spent a lot of time working with her in the neo-natal ward. (He has a surprising knack for working with babies.) She must see this softer side of him, and we're all starting to sense some attraction.

She offered to get it back together with Mark after giving him 60 days celibate.

Alex Karev. They kissed for the first time in the bar at the end of 03.12 Six Days, Part 2.

Addison Montgomery - Grey's AnatomySecret?
She aborted Mark's baby because he'd make a "terrible father." She said: "I wanted to have a baby, just not with you." The truth hurts.
She's "not Meredith Grey!"!


Defining moments:
When she tells off a patient who is treating Meredith poorly since she is the "other woman." Addison informs the patient that it was herself who cheated first.
When Derek is crying out side of Ellis Grey's room and she comes up to him and holds his head in her hands and tells him to be strong.
When she wears salmon scrubs with her red hair (pictured above).
