Charlie Sheen is making lots of headlines today thanks to the wild night that took place in his NYC hotel room, which resulted in the drunken "Two and a Half Men" star being hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation. But earlier on Monday, Sheen appeared to be a model dad, spending quality time with his daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, and his ex-wife Denise Richards at the American Museum of Natural History.
The foursome had traveled together to the Big Apple, where Richards, 39, has been doing press for Spike's "Blue Mountain State." It was a very family-friendly weekend, where the co-parents took Sam and Lola shopping at the American Girl store, and enjoyed a performance of "Mary Poppins" on Broadway. Unfortunately, after his little girls went to bed, Sheen was ready to party.
Police responded to call from The Plaza Hotel, where they discovered the inebriated star naked in the famed Eloise Suite, which is named after the popular children's book about a girl named Eloise who lives on the top floor of the hotel. According to the New York Post, Sheen had returned to his room with a woman -- who wasn't Denise -- then flew off the handle and trashed the suite when he realized his wallet and cell phone were missing. Damage reportedly totaled $7K. Sheen's rep sent out a statement saying the 45-year-old actor had "an adverse allergic reaction to some medication." He's since been released.
Interestingly enough, Richards made an appearance on Howard Stern's satellite radio show on Tuesday and neglected to mention the fact that she had accompanied Sheen to the hospital earlier that morning, but noted that "it's been an eventful trip." I'll say! Later, on "The Joy Behar Show," she continued to keep mum on the her ex hubby's incident. "We're in an amazing place" she said of her relationship with Sheen. "We've been getting along great for the last year-and-a-half. We're doing our best, so as far as that situation, I'm trying to protect the girls from it as much as possible. My daughters are five and six years old," she continued. "And they're at an age when they can start to understand ... they have no idea what went on and a lot of ... our stuff happened when they were much younger, which I'm so grateful for."
