The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills actress has joined the cast of an upcoming teenage faith-based movie titled Switched. First reported by Deadline, Richards will play the role of Victoria Sharp in the movie about Katie Sharp (Madeleine Byrne), an ultra-popular high school girl, who lives to make Cassandra Evans (Miya Horcher) life a living hell.
