Denise Richards Remains Mum on Details of Charlie Sheen Hospitilzation

We never thought we'd say this, but: way to go, Denise Richards!

The ex-wife of Charlie Sheen accompanied that mess of an actor to the hospital yesterday morning, soon after police found him passed out and allegedly high on cocaine. The former couple had spent the weekend together with their daughters, seeing NYC sights and getting along better than ever.

But in an interview with Joy Behar last night, Richards took the high road, refusing to gossip about the father of her children.

"I'd rather leave that for Charlie to discuss, if that's something he wants to do, because that's something very personal and private," she said. "The thing is that my daughters are 5 and 6, and they're at an age where they can start to understand. They have no idea what went on, and our stuff happened when they were much younger, which I'm so grateful for."

The actress has seen the violent side of Sheen first hand, but now says she has "a lot of faith" in her ex. She hopes he finds his way to sobriety.

"We're in an amazing place," Richards told Behar of their relationship. "We've been getting along great for the last year-and-a-half, and we're doing our best. So as far as that situation, I'm just trying to protect the girls from it as much as possible."

Denise Richards Quotes

I admit I have a weakness for guys that have dark hair and are passionate in bed. What's wrong with that?

Denise Richards

If I have my kids on my show, I'm exploiting them. If I don't, people will think I'm not a hands on mom – That's why it's very important to me that the girls are part of it.
