Partly, yes. According to Kristin Chenoweth, in "The New York Dog Magazine," "Some parts are verbatim me...Some parts are totally not. There is one part where [Harriet] is against gay rights and I'm totally the opposite of that....there's an argument [in the pilot that is] pretty much verbatim."Just like Harriet, Kristin went on the 700 Club to promote her CD of contemporary Christian music and, apparently, she had an argument with Aaron Sorkin about that. Also like Harriet, Kristin was offered the chance to pose in lingerie for a men's magazine. While Harriet turned the offer down, Kristin did pose for FHM. Also unlike this show, Kristin didn't work with Sorkin when she was on The West Wing.On December 3rd, 2006, the New York Times stated that Sorkin approached Chenoweth post-breakup and asked her permission for the creation of the character. "I said O.K. I was happy to give him that gift. And I watch every week because I'm supportive of Aaron; whether were together or not, I love him always. I think its a genius show. But ... It is weird when I see her behaving in ways that are different from me. I'm really not that judgmental girl. But you have to let artists go where they go."
