Khloe Kardashian gets by with a little help from her fans. The reality star, 29, hosted a special chat for her followers on Facebook on Tuesday, Oct. 1, in which she thanked her fans for their support amid the ongoing drama with her estranged husband, Lamar Odom.

The brief, 35-minute chat racked up more than 9,000 comments from people all over the country. Twelve of those individuals were lucky enough to get personal responses from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty.

"I think you're so amazing and beautiful and love how you carry yourself through all of these hard times!!!" one fan wrote. "You are such an inspiration to me!!!"

"I'm trying my best!" Kardashian replied. "Kisses."

That comment was the closest she came to addressing her problems with Odom, which have dominated headlines in recent weeks. Friday, Sept. 27, marked the couple's fourth wedding anniversary -- but Kardashian wasn't exactly celebrating. Instead, she hit the gym solo and spent some quality bonding time with her girlfriends.

A pal told Us Weekly recently that the former lovebirds are close to calling off their relationship for good. "She'll be the one who ends things, and it will be soon," the source said.
