Odd relationship with SIL

I've posted about this before but it's an on going conversation with my DP and I want to help but I don't know how. He doesn't have the closest relationship with his sister. I'm fine with that, I don't have one with mine but I genuinely don't care and we live in different countries.

We live locally and she never comes and visits when we've invited her. This has applied to NYE, my DSS birthday and a couple of other occasions. I don't really know her nor she knows me but I don't think that's the key to it.

She was married to my DPs boss and they still work together and are friends. We know that her DP has some jealousy issues so my DP thinks that's part of it.

She's also still close to his ex wife (which I thinks is more the issue at hand) but he gets offended about being ignored/ stood up.

It's our baby's first birthday coming up and we're thinking of inviting her but he's already making a big deal of how she won't care.

I'm starting to get frustrated because he either doesn't care (and not talk about it) or does care about it but they should sort it out between them. I would help but she's a complete stranger so I don't think I'd be much help.
