Basically, she will take anything that is available and that would include exploiting the kids if needs be.
Kate did not have them by herself; those kids also belong to Jon and you seem to be saying that Kate alone has 8 kids to feed. So does Jon. It is clear from their horrible show that Jon did most of the hands on "work" of taking care of these kids from the beginning. He is a parent too; they both have 8 kids to care for.
If Kate wants to be famous (thereby nauseating people all over the world with that ugly mug of hers) that's ok with you, but if Jon wants to do any type of show, that is not? I am not being nasty, I just don't understand your thinking here. You seem to feel it is ok for Kate to use her kids and keep the show going but if Jon were to get a show and feature them, that's a no-no. I don't understand.
I don't believe the sources you quote and seriously doubt some of the info is for real.
Don't get me wrong; right now I despise these two thoroughly for the things they have done to those kids. But to me Kate is simply more despicable than Jon could ever have a hope of being, because she is ugly from the inside out, and suffers some kind of mental problem. The only thing I really care to see is the show stopped forever and no Gosselins on television ever again. But hey, I would take the kids just being off the show and able to perhaps regain some kind of normal existence. I'm not sure this is going to happen, but I hope Jon's efforts (no matter the motivations) are not in vain.
I would almost bet money that you will never hear Kate saying that it's not in her children's best interests to be on television. The only way I see her ever admitting it might be wrong is if she had some kind of a breakdown and/or it served her own purposes in some other way to do so.
