NEW YORK (CBS) Actress Denise Richards, who managed to avoid discussing ex-husband Charlie Sheen and the police call at their hotel when she called into the Howard Stern radio show Tuesday, was quizzed Wednesday morning on TV about the incident.

In an appearance on the "Today" show to promote her new show "Blue Mountain State," Richards was immediately asked about the incident by co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.

Sheen, star of "Two and a Half Men," was hospitalized briefly after after security at the Plaza Hotel called police to report he was disorderly and had broken furniture in his room, police said. Police said he was naked and appeared to be drunk.

Richards, who was staying with their daughters in a different room at the same hotel, said she did not call 911 although she did accompany the actor to the hospital. She said her daughters, aged 5 and 6, are unaware of what happened.

"This is Charlie," Richards said. "If he wants to discuss it, then I'll let him do it, but other than that, at the moment, I don't want to say anything."

She said the four of them visited a museum, did some shopping and saw "Mary Poppins" on Broadway on Monday, the day before the early-morning police call.
