(CNN) -- Actress Tanya Roberts, who was reported by CNN and other media outlets to have died, citing her longtime publicist, Mike Pingel, is still alive, Pingel told CNN Monday.

Pingel said he was notified Sunday evening by Roberts' longtime partner Lance O'Brien that Roberts had died. Pingel said O'Brien was distraught after saying goodbye to Roberts at her bedside at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

In a phone call Monday evening, O'Brien said he was distraught after saying goodbye to Roberts and left the hospital believing it would be the last time he saw her.

On Monday morning, O'Brien was notified by the hospital that Roberts is still alive, according to Pingel and O'Brien. They said it was a coincidence that O'Brien was doing an interview with Inside Edition when the hospital called.

Roberts was hospitalized in Los Angeles on December 24, after she collapsed at her California home following a walk with her dogs. She remains in critical condition, according to Pingel.

Roberts' career in television in film spans more than 30 years.

She played geologist Stacey Sutton in 'A View to a Kill,' opposite Roger Moore and appeared in "That 70s Show" as Donna Pinciotti's mom.
