MISS AMERICA'S OUTSTANDING TEEN PROGRAM ANNOUNCES
RHONDA SHEAR AS SPONSOR AND KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Orlando, FL Miss America's Outstanding Teen (MAOT) organization announced today that Rhonda Shear, former host of USA Network's long-running, popular Friday night movie series, "USA: Up All Night" and current developer of Rhonda Shear Shapewear found on HSN, will kick-off the 2008 MAOT events as the keynote speaker at the "Shear Fun" Welcome Party on August 7th at the Rosen Centre. The event will include a fashion show featuring the latest in beach cover-ups, shapewear and pajamas by Rhonda Shear.

MAOT, the "little sister" to Miss America, will host its national competition in Orlando during the week of August 12-16, 2008 with 52 state representatives competing in various competitions for a chance to win over $30,000 in college scholarships and the title of Miss America's Outstanding Teen.
The competition will be held in the Linda Chapin Theatre at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

"Pageants absolutely jump started my acting/hosting career and later in life gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams. In school and in business, one invariably will need to speak in front of an audience. Pageants gently guide and teach you to accomplish this task with grace and poise," Shear said. "I wish all of these lovely young ladies the best of luck."

In addition, Rhonda Shear Shapewear will be involved with the MAOT Trade Show held August 12-16 at the Rosen Centre Hotel. On August 13th, Shear will host the Rhonda Shear Shapewear Fashion Show at 1pm. The event is open to the public.

Shear's Shapewear line is on Home Shopping Network and developed out of her own personal need. "Clothes never hang on me like a supermodel. I have curves. I'm from New Orleans, like to cook and eat and I'm not giving that up!" She decided that she could get rid of those extra ten pounds at a moments notice with the right undergarments. Out of this personal desire, Shear's, "Slip into Slim" theory was born.

Creator of Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa and former ABC's Bachelor will sponsor the Princess Luncheon

Orlando, FL Miss America's Outstanding Teen (MAOT) organization announced today that Italian prince, Lorenzo Borghese, creator of Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa and Nuzzleplanet.com will sponsor the Royal Treatment Princess Luncheon on August 14th at the Rosen Center. The event will also include a keynote speaker and coronation of the MAOT Princesses by Miss America, Kirsten Haglund and Miss America's Outstanding Teen, Caitlin Brunell. Lorenzo acheived nationwide recognition as ABC's Bachelor and can currently be seen on HSN presenting his luxury pet care product line.

MAOT, the "little sister" to Miss America, will host its national competition in Orlando during the week of August 12-16, 2008 with 52 state representatives competing in various competitions for a chance to win over $30,000 in college scholarships and the title of Miss America's Outstanding Teen.

The competition will be held in the Linda Chapin Theatre at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. The MAOT Princess Program is a mentoring program for girls ages 6-12 years old.

"Every little girl dreams of becoming a princess. The Princess Program is a mentoring event that inspires young ladies to believe in themselves." said Kim Parrish, president MAOT. "During the week of activities, the "princesses" are paired with a teen role model and offered courses in etiquette, acting, the entertainment industry and even cooking! I'm honored that Lorenzo Borghese is supporting our cause. Lorenzo is an excellent example of someone who has been able to turn dreams of success into reality. He's our Prince Charming!"

Borghese developed Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa when he realized his own dog was having skin issues. Since his family had spent generations in the skincare industry, he used his knowledge to develop a line for pets. In addition, Borghese launched Nuzzle Planet, which is similar to MySpace but for pet owners instead.

"I am very excited to be involved with this wonderful scholarship based program," said Lorenzo Borghese. "I am pleased for the Royal Treatment Italian Pet Spa to be able to sponsor the Royal Treatment Princess Luncheon," he said. "I hope they have an incredible experience fit for a princess!"
