OK, to try and make a long story short, I have been very supportive of my brother's wife and her daughter ever since my brother and she got back together 40+ years after they broke up!.

I think it's time for you to flip on her and her daughter. The next time the daughter wants a shoulder to cry on, tell her "sorry, I'm not good enough for the "good" news, so I can't possibly be good enough to lean on in a crisis". I actually told a "friend" that, because she was doing the same thing your neice is doing. Our "friendship" ended right then and there, but I didn't care at that point.

Hi Sadie -

My first thought when I read this is that new SIL is jealous of you.
