The panel on The Real (Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry) discuss what’s a proper tip after viewing a video by CNBC that angered Twitter back in April. The video suggests diners double the tax to calculate a tip that’ll “save” them money every year. People had issues with this because doubling the tax (depending on the state) is below 20% and suggesting diners tip less to save money was terrible advice.

People online suggest 20% is now the minimum and if you can, you should tip your server 25-30%. This brand new information stuns Tamera, she thinks this makes her look cheap because she gives excellent service 20%. Tamera then says she will tip more moving forward. Loni however disagrees and thinks 25% is too high and thinks the restaurant industry needs to start paying waitresses and waiters a higher wage.

For the folks who have means, remember that your 20% tip can end up being 12% for the waiter after they tip out other staff. That's why, if you can afford it, tip 25-30%

20% minimum, more if you can afford it.

If you can't afford to tip 20%, you can't afford the dinner you just ordered. Order less, or stay home. Don't screw your server out of their hard-earned money.
