Donnie Wahlberg Can Even Make CNN Cool (almost)

(CNN)New Kids on the Block's Donnie Wahlberg got the royal treatment at Waffle House. So he decided to return the favor.

"My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years!" the Blue Bloods star wrote on Facebook. "So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC! ❤️"

Wahlberg posted a picture showing he'd left a massive tip for the overnight servers. A whopping $2000 on the $82.60 check.

At first that may seem like the male equivalent of a side boob photograph for a cheap thrill for the pissants but he does this all the time and the Rockhouse loves anyone who loves Waffle House.  We have no use for filet but a good breakfast from good people will set you right every time.

Rockhouse hat tip to Donnie Wahlberg as he knows who needs a little boost in this world and he's not at all shy about being part of doing that.

CNN carried the story and they're still not cool but Donnie Wahlberg is aces.

Bet he would act like that even if he wasnt rich as hell.
But it must be pretty cool to make people smile like that
I worked a truckstop for awhile and John Kay came in while touring. He not only treated the servers like humans but played in the drive lounge for about an hour
This was long after Steppenwolf was cool but he sure was that night

It seems like some people are wired so cool even getting the big bucks doesn't mess them up and maybe they get even cooler yet
