The Thompson family was selling the cookies for $3.50 plus shipping and all boxes included an autographed family photo. Honey Boo Boo's mother June Shannon posted a message on the Facebook page announcing their successful endeavor: "All cookies that have been paid for have been shipped! Thanks everyone for supporting Girl Scouts."

But since the star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is not a Girl Scout herself, she is technically ineligible to personally sell the organization's cookies, according to Debbie Caballero, marketing and communications officer for Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia.

June Shannon told Georgia TV station KSLA that the only issue the Girl Scouts Program had was with a photo posted on the Honey Boo Boo Facebook page that showed Alana along with an official Girl Scouts logo, which she said local Girl Scouts representatives asked the family to remove.

The Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia told KSLA in a statement that "after a conversation with the site administrator, the post on Alana Thompson's site was removed." The statement added: "While we encourage our Girl Scouts to use the most creative and resourceful ways possible to reach their Cookie Program goals, we are committed to applying our Girl Scout Cookie Program policies fairly across the board."

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (Getty Images)Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has lifted up the curtain for you to get a glimpse into the ridiculous world of tabloid journalism.

The 22-year-old actress revealed to MTV on the Oscars red carpet last Sunday, that she “got” to choose whether a story would run linking her to her “Silver Linings Playbook” costar Bradley Cooper or her “Catching Fire” costar Sam Claflin.

“I chose Bradley Cooper because I love Sam’s fiancé so much,”“The Hunger Games” star revealed.

But don’t mistake those fictional reports for real life, because Lawrence once again said there is nothing romantic going on between her and Cooper, 38.
