Perhaps someone who just has to be the center of attention. 

 

This personality has been described as someone “who has to be the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding, and the baby at every christening.”

 

I don’t recall who first said this, but it describes some people very well.

Hyperbole is intentional exaggeration, i.e. "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse". 

Sorry, I'm not sure what word you're searching for. I hope someone comes up with it because now I'm curious.

Well I'm now curious about this elusive word we have been searching for.  We've offered every possibility that even remotely describes this person.  Hoping the OP had an epiphany and returns to enlighten us with the mystery word.

I had a cousin that would always exaggerate everything. No matter what it was he would never be honest about it. I guess he wanted to make himself sound or seem better at whatever! We all knew this about him.

I hate to sound crude but my DH would call a person who always has an excuse a "bull crapper"!!!
