I can't speak for anyone but I THINK I remember Kim Ryan telling us that the girls were getting tired and it was rough to be on the road with the family and or be separated for long periods of time. I'm sure if you use the search feature and type in Kim's name you'll find the post.
As for Stevani, maybe it was the same? Maybe she outgrew the role? I don't recall any explanation at the time but it's not unusual for the kids to fulfill their 6 month contract and then leave. I think most realize how hard it is at the 6 month mark and don't resign (if asked).
