Mama June & Honey Boo Boo

You Can't Stop Us from Selling Girl Scout Cookies!!!

Mama June
and Honey Boo Boo are going full steam ahead with their Girl Scout cookie campaign ... despite stern warnings from the Girl Scout organization.

As we reported, the Girl Scouts of the USA contacted HBB today to remove a banner she had put on her Facebook, in which she solicited sales for Girl Scout cookies from her 700,000 fans. (FYI -- HBB's not even a Girl Scout. She just agreed to help a Girl Scout friend of hers.)

A rep for the GSUSA told us they had the banner removed because it was unfair to other Girl Scouts trying to sell cookies.

But Mama June tells TMZ, she's going to continue selling Girl Scout cookies any way she can ... even if she's not allowed to post advertisements on HBB's Facebook ... because it's for a family friend.

June tells us, "If I can raise more money for a troop, whoever they are, especially in an area where they don’t get a lot of money, and parents can’t afford to buy a ton of cookies, why wouldn't I help?"

She added, "We're doing nothing wrong."

June says she's already sold 400 boxes and the orders keep pouring in.

Contrary to what these folks think-the rules that apply to other scouts apply to them as well and they are in violation.

All the Girl Scouts will do is let her sell the cookies but eliminate her from the competition. It is not complicated at all, especially since she is NOT a girl scout.

As long as everything is on the up and up, let her sell tons of cookies. The Girl Scouts can only benefit from it.


Like Cheryl A. said, she's not even a girl scout.


What I don't want to hear however is that they're taking a cut.


Just follow the money and the association ends up winning.

I fail to understand how reality stars are relevant to society just because a money-making entity aka television company says so (including choosing to elevate them to public awareness via a television platform/cable television) and I really wish reality television would disappear...including the Kardashians. Reality TV is mental leprosy and people like Mama June and Honey Boo Boo and Kim Kardashian are the diseased limbs of reality TV...they are the dregs of society: No talent, not interesting, not inspiring, NOT RELEVANT.

I dont have a problem with her selling the cookies, at all. Like her mom said, it's for a good cause. But, aren't there awards and whatnot for top sellers? Her girl scout friend should not be eligible for such.

There is a breakdown in the GSA leadership heirarchy. I think what might happen is that the sales from this troop will be disqualified for not complying with the rules. Maybe the girl who is cheating will have her sales confiscated by the national organization.


The whole point of the cookie sales is to teach good values. The girl scouts have to say a pledge every meeting that on their honor they will try to serve God, their country, and mankind, and to live by the girl scout law. Then the law is like promising to be honest, to be fair, to help where they are needed, etc.


This is not honest and fair and it is breaking the GS law. If June wanted to help by driving the kid around and waiting in her car while she went door to door, that might be alright. Selling cookies online for her is not alright.


If they are doing this wimp out thing of having cookie shops in front of grocery stores, maybe she can let HBB be the guest of honor there. That might be allowed.


Only girls scouts are supposed to be making the sales.

Does Mama June know the Girl Scouts of America can sue Her and Honey BOO BOO for selling a Trademark Item without any consent from the company.
