(Newser) – Former soap model and porn star Marilyn Chambers was found dead in her California home last night, the Los Angeles Times reports. Police are still determining how she died, but don’t suspect foul play. Chambers, whose real name is Mary Ann Taylor, became a cultural sensation when she dumped Ivory Snow detergent ads to star in 1972’s X-rated Behind the Green Door.
