While Denise Richards feels "sad" for Charlie Sheen's current personal plight, at least there is some solace that their former battle has reached a place a peace.

"Charlie and I are in a great place right now," Richards told Oprah Winfrey in a wide-ranging interview on Tuesday. The actress later went into detail about the process the couple went through to move away from being exes battling it out in the tabloids to being able to spend a New Year's Eve dinner together as a family.

"All of this has been a work in progress," Richards said, pointing out that the two also worked with a mediator.
