Despite Jon Gosselin's public proclamation that he wants to slow down his divorce and improve his relationship with Kate, she has decided to go full speed ahead to legally dissolve their marriage, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

"Kate sees no reason to wait and drag this out," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. "She doesn't think Jon is being sincere in his comments. She thinks it's all a publicity stunt."

Jon said "I regret my conduct" on Tuesday in a press release that was promoting a magazine interview he gave. He also said, "I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family - not destroy it."

The only problem is, Kate's not buying it - at all.

She learned about Jon's "request" to slow the divorce the same way everyone else did - by reading about it on Tuesday in the press. And although one source says Jon had a letter with this information in it sent to Kate through an arbitrator, Kate never received or read it. "If he meant any of it, he could have easily told her in person or on the phone," the source told RadarOnline.com.

"Jon is trying to repair his public image," the source continued.

In fact, Jon will be appearing on Larry King Live. TLC announced on Tuesday they are severely minimizing his role on the show, even changing the title from Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8.
