It’s not just paparazzi who spy on celebs: Lauren Holly went to a June 1 L.A. benefit for Best Buddies — Anthony Kennedy Shriver’s program for the mentally retarded — in part to secretly check out Kennedys. Why the subterfuge? She’ll play Ethel Kennedy in NBC’s new miniseries Jackie, Ethel, Joan: Women of Camelot with Leslie Stefanson (The General’s Daughter) as Joan and Jill Hennessy (Law & Order) as Jackie O. ”It’s probably a complete invasion to their family,” whispered Holly, eyeing sibs Maria and Bobby Shriver (Ethel didn’t attend). ”I just want to be respectful tonight.”
