If you’ve watched enough Party Down South, you’ve surely seen “Wild Lyle,” Lyle Boudreaux’s crazier alter-ego who can sometimes be an unwelcome sight to his roommates. Tiffany Heinen says he’s calmed down a bit for season two, but OK! asks the man himself to describe “Wild Lyle” and fill us in on the craziest thing he’s ever done.
OK!:When fans approach you, what do they usually say?
Lyle Boudreaux: I hear, “I’m a Boudreaux baby.” And now I’m pretty sure wherever I go I’m going to hear, “I’m a Baboso.” It really doesn’t bother me—people’s opinion, especially on the negative part. It’s people’s opinion and they can say what they want and do what they want. I know whenever I do show up for parties and stuff like that they’ll say, “Let’s see Wild Lyle,” and I’m like, “Nooo, you really don’t want to see that side.”
OK!: How would you describe Wild Lyle?
LB: Wild Lyle is wide open and full throttle and 10-ft tall and bullet-proof and is down for anything crazy.
OK!: How would you describe yourself in your everyday life?
LB: I’m ADHD and dyslexic. I’m always out and about and like to go do stuff. I think of the craziest, stupid things ever. I’m in my own little world sometimes.
OK!: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
LB: Man, I’ve done so much crazy stuff. I will say the craziest thing I’ve ever done is bud ride a Colfax. My four-wheel drive broke, truck sunk, I climbed on top of my truck and did a back flip off of it and my bone came out the side of my leg. They had to rebuild it. It was in 2012.
OK!: That sounds painful.
LB: Oh, it was. I was screaming like a girl.
