NadyaOcto-MomSuleman said she’s “ashamed” of having to rely on public assistance to take care of her 14 children — but will never sink so low as to perform porn films for a quick buck. 

“I still am working as hard as I possibly can to support them,’’ Suleman told the Today show Thursday, adding she made her decision to go on public assistance “reluctantly.”

Suleman said she was not just humbled — but afraid — as she received numerous death threats after looking to public coffers for help with her kids (to the tune of $2,000 a month).

“I feel ashamed, but who cares how I feel? It’s 100 percent about my children,” Suleman asked and answered, noting she hopes to get off public assistance as soon as she can. “They deserve everything, they deserve the best.”

Acknowledging her topless spread for a UK magazine recently, Suleman said she wouldn’t do full-on porn — even if the offer was $100 million.

“I won’t touch other human flesh,’’ Suleman said. “The only flesh I’m touching is my own. I would never, never accept anything. I will not lose my grip of my deeply indoctrinated morals and values.

Suleman said that “every choice we parents make is going to significantly affect our children for the rest of our lives — it’s going to haunt them forever — I have to be the ultimate positive role model.’’

Asked if she’s concerned public officials will try to take her children from her as she sinks deeper into financial ruin, Suleman said, “That will never happen and I can guarantee you on that.

“Hundreds of people, random people, call [social services] on a daily basis, and it’s sick and sad and to me. [It’s] unbelievably fascinating in regard to humanity, how many people are foaming at the mouth for my children to be taken away from me. The saddest part is 15 years from now, when they’re 18 and legal and in college, people will still be foaming at their mouth for them to be taken.’’

Suleman captured the world’s attention January 26, 2009 when she gave birth to the octuplets at a Southern California hospital. All 14 children of her kids have come as a result of in-vitro fertilization.
