Alysha Noel Harris (born December 25, 1987) is an American beauty queen from La Grange[1] who competed in the Miss USA pageant in 2008.

Harris won the Miss Kentucky USA 2008 title in a state pageant held in Somerset, Kentucky in January 2008[2] and was crowned by Michelle Banzer, who held the Miss Kentucky USA 2007 title. This was Harris's first attempt at the title, as well as her first pageant ever. Harris is bi-racial, half black and white.[3] Harris represented Kentucky in the Miss USA 2008 pageant that was held in the spring of 2008 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her sister titleholder is Shannen Reil, Miss Kentucky Teen USA 2008.

There was some controversy the weekend after the pageant at a Kentucky Derby party when Harris was photographed dancing with New England Patriots star wide receiver Randy Moss. Reportedly at first the dancing was playful,[4] but then "the second — and more provocative — photo shows Harris bent over in front of Moss grinding up against him as he holds her hip, which could be depicted as a simulated sex act."[5][6]
