Lovely ladies of Newport Beach will gather on Aug. 29 for the third annual Newport Beach Pageant. A familiar face will emcee the event: Alexis Bellino, a local resident and star of the "Real Housewives of Orange County."
The pageant includes five categories, Miss Newport Beach Teen, Miss Newport Beach, Junior Miss Newport Beach, Little Miss Newport Beach and Mrs. Newport Beach. The last three are new additions to this year's pageant. The last category, Mrs. Newport Beach, allows married women between the ages of 25 and 45 to compete in the beauty pageant.
The pageant will take place on the yacht Endeavour in Newport Harbor.
Pageant-goers will have the opportunity to get some screen time. Bravo will be filming the pageant for a future episode of "Real Housewives of Orange County" and filmmaker Shari Bellafonte (daughter of Harry Bellafonte) will be filming the show for her documentary, "What Is Beauty?"
