So, if you're wondering when 'RHOC' will return and what to expect when it's back, then we got you covered. Read on to know all about it.

Episode 8 of 'RHOC' Season 16 will air on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 9/8c. The episode titled 'Sweat, Lies, and Pornography' features things heating up in Cabo as truths are revealed. The episode's summary reads, "As Cabo heats up and truths are revealed, the ladies struggle to keep their cool. Emily looks inward for answers, while Jen’s pain pushes her to emotional limits. As Heather looks at properties, Gina questions whether her investment in Noella is worth the cost. And despite Shannon’s efforts to keep the peace, she only stokes the fire more, causing an explosive chain of events."

The previous episode featured Heather planning a small getaway for the ladies to Cabo, she intentionally left out Noella from the guest list because she didn't see any reason to invite her. However, at Gina's request, Heather agreed to it and extended the invitation to her. Once Noella arrived at the vacation spot, she did everything to irk Heather. From arriving late to complaining about the food and drinks, Noella's attitude just kept annoying the hostess of the trip. When Gina pulled Noella aside and told her that her behavior was annoying Heather, Noella simply shrugged it off saying everything she did would annoy Heather.  This appears to have created friction between the two ladies as Gina is determined to be in Heather's good books and defending Noella's behavior might not sit well the Heather. The upcoming episode will also feature Dr. Jen finally opening up about her marital issues. We can't wait to catch up on all the juicy drama awaiting us the next week.

'RHOC' Season 16 Episode 8 returns on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at 9/8c on Bravo.
