N ot that any of the Kardashians are far from public scrutiny, but now it seems Khloe Kardashian Odom may be edging big sister Kim out of the spotlight — and not for reasons she wants.

According to folks close to the family famous for being famous, Khloe is pretty depressed lately — working hard to hold together her marriage to NBA player Lamar Odom.

While all concerned say Khloe unlikely will be following Kim to divorce court anytime soon, there apparently have been some serious strains on the Kardashian-Odom marriage.

Khloe has been hunkered down with “momager”

Kris Jenner a lot lately — especially since Jenner told her daughter she should have been “more positive” while speaking with People magazine the other day.“

I like to think divorce is not an option,” Kardashian told the magazine — a line that has raised even more questions about the stability of her marriage.

According to a source close to Odom, he has been acting cool to his wife lately. He’s likely worried about reviving his flatlined NBA career, the reason the couple nixed doing another season of their “Khloe & Lamar” reality show.

GRAMMER GAB: Only a month after quitting “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” — allegedly over a salary/contract dispute — Camille Grammer is coming back.

But reportedly she’ll be in a much-reduced role, only appearing on the reality series when the main characters run into her at parties, shopping or out dining.

Meanwhile, Camille’s ex-hubby, “Boss” star Kelsey Grammer, and his wife, Kayte, were involved in a very minor fender-bender Tuesday night at Clark and Armitage. The good news: No one was hurt, and the actor’s car, rear-ended by a Chicago cab, was not visibly damaged. Grammer was said to be very gracious to bystanders who rushed to see if he was OK. After exchanging insurance info, they all went on their way.

AWARDS ACTION: Congrats to filmmaker Nadav Kurtz, whose “Paraiso” just won the best documentary short award at the Tribeca Film Festival — the prestigious film fest co-founded by Robert De Niro in the days following 9/11.“Paraiso” focuses on three Mexican immigrants, brothers

Sergio and Jaime Polanco and their cousin Cruz Guzman , who daily risk their lives working as Chicago high-rise window washers at Neal Zucker’s Corporate Cleaning Services — the city’s largest window-washing firm.

The film delves into the three men’s lives, their thoughts about rappelling up and down Our Town’s towers and the people they observe inside the buildings they clean.

PIERS-ING POINT: The just-released bad ratings news for CNN has some network sources buzzing about the future — or lack of one — for nighttime talk show host Piers Morgan.

While Morgan’s ratings sunk less than those of some CNN colleagues, sources say the Brit import has few allies in key management posts at the cable giant — unlike Anderson Cooper or John King.

Yet there are no plans to make any changes at the network, and a well-placed CNN honcho calls cracks about Morgan “just malicious, unsubstantiated gossip. … Some people will never accept him as Larry King’s replacement.”

HOT SPINNING: Not one but two of the most popular and acclaimed DJs in the world will showcase their talents this weekend at Paris Club’s rooftop nightspot, Studio Paris. Grammy-nominated Dutch DJ Tiesto will be spinning on Friday night — followed by the very innovative Deadmau5 on Saturday.

ROCK ON! Music man Dave Grohl is making his film directing debut. The Foo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer will helm “Sound City” — about the Van Nuys, Calif., studio where Nirvana, Cheap Trick, Tom Petty, Guns N’ Roses and Fleetwood Mac recorded.
