Did You Know TV Star Donnie Walhberg Is A Big Tipper
September 6, 2017 12:03pm CST
It's true! The actor who plays the detective on the popular TV show "Blue Bloods" left a $2,000 tip at a Waffle house recently. Walhberg stated that his Mom waited tables and his Dad tended bars so when employees in the service industry treat him like royalty he returns the favor. He had stopped in the Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina after a long day of filming on the set of the police TV show. His breakfast bill was for $82.60. Walhberg seems to really like Waffle House Restuarants, since this actually wasn't the first time he's given Waffle House employees the royal treatment. After stopping for a meal at the Waffle House in Edgewater, Maryland in June, he left the staff a $500 tip. Myself, I always try to tip the appropriate amount when I dine out, because most in the service industry strive to provide good service, and they rely so much on tips for their income. I know these actors make a lot of money, but I'm sure these employees really apprectiated the generosity just the same. In closing, I thought it was nice to see a postive story in the news for a change. So many of these celebrities probably wouldn't take the time Walhberg did to pose for selfies. In addition, he provided tickets to the Charlotte staff to an upcoming New Kids On The Block reunion concert! That is one down to earth gesture from an actor who plays such an arrogant detective on "Blue Bloods." Source- MSN Lifestyle/Today from Julia Curley Photo- Buzz 60-walhberg.jpeg photos

Whenever I hear about the Wahlbergs, I can't help but think of their singer/rapper days. They've come so far and how wonderful to hear that Donny has become such a generous celebrity, thinking of his roots. Though I'm no big tipper, I will tip the appropriate amount too - maybe a little more if the service was that exceptional.

So kind of him to leave those generous tips!! So good to hear he has done other things to delight the staff. I always took a job as a waitress during summer breaks in college, and that has made me give a bigger tip to those who serve me.
