Giada De Laurentiis My Post Divorce Pad Is Swinging

EXCLUSIVE

Giada De Laurentiis isn't crying after losing her home in her nasty divorce because she's purchasing a new pad that's bigger, better ... and just around the corner.

We're told De Laurentiis is ready to dish out $6 million on a 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath, 1920s Spanish-style estate in the Riviera area of Pacific Palisades. 

The home has a bit of history ... it once belonged to swing legend Benny Goodman, and the guest house is even set up like a music studio. 

No surprise ... the open kitchen's got all top-of-the-line appliances, so there won't be anything stopping Giada from cooking all the salty-sweet apple hand pies and chicken cacciatore she likes.

As we previously reported, Giada's ex-husband got to keep their old pad in the divorce ... but it was chump change in comparison.

Nothing like starting with a clean plate.
